Wine Bank on View, Bendigo

On our recent trip to Bendigo, Tim and I had lunch at Wine Bank on View, a wine bar and wine merchant which also serves food.  It is situated in the very opulent former ANZ Bank Building - the building is a wonder to behold.

Being at a wine bar, we started off with a glass of wine each - in our case, a glass of Harcourt Valley Vineyard 2014 Rose each, a local drop:

For lunch, we decided to share a number of entrees.  First up was the spicy chicken quesadilla with tomato salsa, sour cream and guacamole ($16): 

This was a light, tasty choice.

Next came the homemade sausage rolls with tomato chutney (3 for $12):

These sausage rolls were flavoursome and beautifully spiced - definitely not your standard bakeshop offering.

Our final dish was the duck, pork and rabbit rillettes with pear chutney and sour dough toast ($17.50):

Yummo - all of the elements  combined on toast made for the perfect light meal.

Afterwards, you can stroll around Wine Bank to check out their magnificent wines:

Wine Bank is a cool, soothing, atmospheric place to escape from the madding crowd for a bite to eat.

Sometimes you just need those places where you can get away from the crowds! :D

Any one that serves a special kind of chutney with various snacks sounds great to me!

I love the front of the building - what a great revamp of an old bank! I'm glad the food delivered too.
