“Awesome food, definitely going back!”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

Dad and I stopped off at this wonderful hotel, for a counter lunch before a long drive. The food was worth the wait, filling our bellies for the road to come. Would definitely go back for more. Get the parmigiana!

We come to this hotel every year when staying in Bright to enjoy a quality feed. The food is absolutely awesome, good homemade meals, not the ones rushed out by chefs in big kitchens. The friendliest service you will find anywhere, and nothing beats a wood fire to keep you warm. It is a nice cozy and small pub, you must give it a try!!

After visiting HVH in 2012 for a warming ale coming back from the slopes we wished we could have stayed longer, so this year we did. Pat, Mick & Jo are lovely and were great hosts with great local stories. Meals are presented in a beautiful dining room near a fireplace, this makes for a friendly cozy atmosphere. Hubby had a Porterhouse steak who raved about it and I had vego Lasagne which was satisfying. We stayed the night in the old 1854 built building in a simple 1920s style room, kept warm with good electric blankets. Mick suggested breakky at 'FEZ Cafe' and oh my goodness - I am glad we did. I will not give anything away, just give it a go!
Thanks for the stay!

With autumn again with us we travelled to Ovens for a great steak by their open fire. Something we make a point of doing and enjoy each winter and autumn. Good meals and friendly. What more can anyone want.

En route to Bright and tried to get in at the Milewa Pub. Very quickly told Full and bad luck. Heading through Ovens and saw the HVH. It's great. Publican was very jovial and welcoming. Food was very reasonably priced and great value. Pick was my mates mixed grill. Wine was Indigo chardy at mine hosts recommendation and the best drop we had all weekend. The HVH also does breakfast and is a B&B which would be worth the try. Will be going back.

We read on trip adviser that the Ovens Happy Valley Hotel was a great place to have a real (PUB) meal and friendly service. The reviews were right on the money as we sat and enjoyed our lunch under the Wisteria in the courtyard with our collective of children. Try them out for a really nice Pub day with good food at excellent family friendly prices. We will all be back again for another round. Cheers to the Owners and Staff.

The Happy Valley Hotel is located right on the main road and along the railway cycle track. It makes for a perfect spot for a stop, a drink or something to eat. We came in on Christmas day and found the place open. Unfortunately, the neighbourhood found the place too and all was fully booked for lunch. We took this as a sign of quality and will certainly try again next time.
