I travelled here with my mum to explore Ballantine and stanthorpe wine country. The room easily fit us both comfortably in and the dinner in the restaurant reminded me of the old fashioned big pub meal that we couldn't finish!! Delicious!!!!

We had dinner here as most wineries close at around 4 or 5. The food was exactly what I expected: the fish and seafood were greasy but the salad was quite nice. By the time we decided to check on dessert the kitchen was already closed (8pm on a Friday!). With so many options nearby I wouldn't have lunch here,... More

Went in to get lunch and a drink, no one behind the bar and one staff member out on the deck smoking. No acknowledgement from her when she saw us. Stood around for a minute waiting for her but she just kept on smoking. Walked around to the kitchen and asked if we could get a drink, was told I... More

Awesome value for money ($100 for a Saturday night and room slept 3 if needed). Found rooms clean, tidy, newly renovated. Also have everything I needed, flat screen TV, bar fridge, etc. also bathroom was huge for a motel. Tavern was less then 100m away, but not a noisy or rowdy pub, and was also more then happy with the... More

Snapper : not as tough as previous reviewer said. Not amazingly good either. It's average and totally acceptable for a tavern and the price. Burger : this was yummy Both came with salad and chips. The salad fresh and crisp and with just the right amount of dressings Chips were really really good Overall great lunch stopover. Can't complain when... More

Group of eight went for dinner. Told the owner we booked a table and he ignored me and took orders in the bar instead. When we could order, we ordered garlic bread and kids meals at 7 pm , but garlic bread entry did not turn up until 8pm. Very poor country hospitality. Food was pub food as expected but... More

I ate there recently and ordered the Pan-fried Snapper with veges. When it arrived the fish was over, over, over cooked, it was like leather it was so over cooked. It was so dried out it was tasteless. The veges were chips and a small side dish consisting of a piece of broccoli, two circles of carrots and I guess... More

Wife and I stayed here for lunch one day on our way to Stanthorpe. Ballandean is a small but interesting area for either a short or long stay. Everything about the place made it a very pleasant lunchtime experience. We did not have long to wait for our lunch time order to be delivered to our table. The prices were... More

We went to this establishment on a week day lunch so it was very quite only two other people when we arrived and four more came in later. We ordered our food and my wife ordered a coffee. The disappointing thing was the coffee came out after the steaks (circa 40 minutes after ordering). This type of slack delivery is... More

We stayed up the road in the cottages and payed a fortune. We stayed there as we were looking for somewhere to stay close to Ballendean Estate (went there for an AMAZING dinner). We had done the area winery stops and stopped here before we went to get ready for dinner. We sat on the deck and watched the sun... More
