“Stop here!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

We'd been to the King Valley and driven by the Mountain View Hotel a few times in the past, but never stopped. This time we stopped and were richly rewarded. We sat outside and enjoyed the bird life and beautiful scenery. We had read positive reviews and they were validated with our wonderful lunch of slow-cooked pork shoulder ($24), the most tender we have ever eaten. The Cobb salad ($8) was delicious and a generous size for the price. A bottle of Pizzini Sangiovese Shiraz ($36) went perfectly with the food. We got the impression that it would be hard to get a bad meal here.

“Dinner for two”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

Meal was a surprise. The portion sizes were ample. The wine list had many choices from the King Valley and were reasonably priced.

“Service and Fab food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Not your average Pub....but a Gastro Pub with that country feel. From the staff to the food on the plate I could not fault the Mountainview Hotel. Unbeatable value, if this place was in the city you'd pay considerably more. The best dessert I have had in years (Lemon Parfait) a snap at $12
The accommodation is also gorgeous having been recently renovated. Definitely worth a drive to stay the night, visit a couple of wineries and enjoy an amazing meal served by brilliant staff.
Thanks guys for a memorable evening. We'll be back!

“Grape escape”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013 via mobile

The ownership of this establishment is common with the Pizzini winery and it's a good option for lunch after doing the rounds of the King Valley wineries. The location is very pretty and in Summer the garden is shady and cool.ask for a recommendation from the menu. My partner did and enjoyed the best ceasar salad in captivity.
