Thanks for your review. It's great that you felt your didn't have to leave our property during your stay. With breakfast included and lunch and dinner available, we think that Happy Valley makes for a relaxing short escape with no need to leave if you don't want to. Although there is so much to do in the Granite Belt Region.... More

Pork Belly and the onsite brewed beers are a must! Very cosy and they have options of eating/drinking inside or out on the deck

Situated outside of Stanthorpe township itself so it's wise to avail yourself of a taxi if you intend to try their range of local brews. I tried out four and found three to be just right for me on aroma taste and after taste. The Pilsner was refreshing , the India Pale Ale had an interesting hop finish and India... More

We ate here on a Sunday night. The food was delicious. Even our daughter enjoyed trying the crocodile spring rolls. The pumpkin & wattleseed damper with the butters was so fresh. The mains were great. My husband enjoyed trying the beers. The waitress was very friendly. It was a lovely night out and made better by trying new dishes that... More

Thank you for your review. It's great to hear that children can be adventurous when it comes to trying new foods! I'm glad you enjoyed the meals. Sorry about the car park lighting. The lights should come on when the sun goes down so I'm not sure what happened that night - they are working now. See you next time!... More

We went here for our dinner, which was included in our accommodation. This meal came with a beer paddle, and though we both do not really drink, it was fun to test out the different kinds of beer. The meal was delicious, three separate small meals all placed on a long cutting board. My personal favourite which may seem like... More

This was one for the bucket list, brewery with a brewers platter to match. We arrived early telling staff that this is what we were here for and sat waiting until the kitchen opened for lunch orders. Then we ordered and paid the the platters two at $105 via credit card. After a while the waitress came out and advised... More

Lisa, I too would be very disappointed and completely understand your frustration. After reading your review, we discussed what had happened in our weekly staff meeting. The day you visited us was a day that my husband and I were away. The manager was unfortunately stuck on the phone to Telstra trying to sort out some internet issues and our... More

Fantastic staff, great location. Geoff took the kids under his wing and off they all went to feed the ducks. We relaxed on the deck sampling superb beers. Returned later that evening for dinner. Once again the staff were fantastic, every need catered for. Nothing was too much trouble. The beer, as much as the food, is worth the visit.... More

Not much open on a Sunday night but we tried the Brewery. Seemed to be understaffed and felt it lacked atmosphere. My meal was cool when delivered and my husband's venison not the top notch dish he was hoping for. Average all round.

I am really sorry you did not find your experience to be above average. My family and I were not here on that particular night, but I understand that the restaurant received a lot of 'walk-in' bookings which were unexpected and resulted in a busy night for those staff that were on. Thanks for taking the time to write this... More
