Reasons To Book Your Private Function With Us

At Woodfired Kitchen in Glen Iris Melbourne we offer small group bookings for all types of function. Our function room is Heritage Listed and the room and building were constructed in 1933 for Mr C Chitty, a well known local building and timber merchant. Part of the High Street shopping precinct, most buildings in the area have retained their original façade, including render and tiles. We have retained some of the old charm, including the fireplace and chandeliers.
