The chicken special was was to die for, the staff were very friendly, the desert was just the right size and presented beautifully. We will be back and we will be telling friends about it. Thanks for having us.

Located in resort of Happy Valley. We ate there two nights and were surprised at how good the evening meals were. Equilavant to any 5 star restaurants in a city. Service was excellent and great local wines.

After struggling to find this place due to lack of signage (which we found out is not for lack of the Brewery trying, just coming up against bureaucracy) we walked in looking forward to lunch and a tasting. Stood around for a bit till a young girl behind counter asked if we would like to try some beer. After selecting... More

We went there last Thursday night; the beer paddles samplers were a big hit and really good value. My fav is the Irish Red Ale but serious beer drinkers liked the Kolsch. Then for the meal, the girls had the deconstructed seafood chowder and the boys had the Tenterfield pork belly. The chowder was a huge hit, being really a... More

Thank you so much for your feedback. It's great that you enjoyed your meal with us and of course, the beer. I am really disappointed that you did not enjoy the crème brulee. This is our most popular dessert so I will speak to our chef regarding your feedback. Thank you once again. Dee Davenport More

The atmosphere in the restaurant is rustic and so perfect for a retreat. My husband had the unconstructed seafood dish and I tried it and it was perfectly cooked. Being a light eater I had the egg roll entree and a salad. It was delicious. The desserts were great. We enjoyed a pils style beer at the bar and found... More

Last weekend we dined twice. The first occasion was on Friday night with friends. We started with their beer and it is the third time I have had their own brewed beer. It is great craft beer and I would suggest all beer drinkers would find a couple of beers to their liking. The meals were lovely. The Pork Belly... More

We were so excited to go. I have to say the cabins were lovely and clean. Surroundings beautiful. Cannot fault the accommodation. Loved the fire place. Was cosy! Dinner on our second night was good and true to being told we will experience food from the Granite belt. Everything we ordered was delicious. However the continental breakfast for both mornings...

As we pulled in to the granite belt brewery I was impressed- it looked neat and tidy. The theme was Xmas in July. The dining area was nice - warm enough on a cold night too.

Hi Melissa, Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed our restaurant but it is a shame our Twice Cooked Pork Belly in plum sauce with Banana Blossom salad was too sweet for your palate. This is a very popular dish but I can understand that not everyone will like the sweetness of this meal. We hope to... More
