Set on a beautiful park like property, offers indoor and outdoor seating. Awesome menu and whilst not large, encompasses a wide range of food choices. Staff are professional and friendly without being obtrusive. Meals are very tasty and well presented. Good selection of wines and...owner has his own craft beer range. The latter can also be purchased as takeaways. Located just out if Geraldine, we made use of their free pick-up and return home transport in a modern, air-conditioned van. This is a real bonus if you want yo enjoy a couple of wines or beers.More

After reading the mixing reviews about this place, we decided to give it a chance for our lunch. Walked in, completely ignored by two staffs standing by the bar, my 9 years old child and I waited by the door for 5mins without being greeted...or taking to a table. So we walked back to our car and left. Not recommended to anyone, we certainly will never return.More

My apologies for not realizing that you were waiting at the door and you were a new customer. I was obviously focusing on other duties at the time. We have been very busy over the Christmas/New Year period. The training of new staff over this...More

We happened upon this little gem by accident. We had a tasting platter each from the craft beers. Really enjoyed Philip and Raes warm hospitality. We stayed the night in the Park over Property next to cafe. Secure flat and surprisingly quiet next to main...road. Thanks will call again next time we are throughMore

The title says it all, good and fresh. I felt welcome and satisfied. The lady ( I presume owner) is nice, the guy ( I presume husband) is a bit strange but ok. NIce beer

How awful and greedy ☹☹☹More

We had a great dinner here last Saturday. Very welcoming host! A limited but very good menu. We shared the wonderful Beef Wellington - the best we had ever tasted and a real credit to the chef. The Blue Cod was also delicious Very good...and cheap drinking. Not a beer drinker but if you were it would be paradise. Good wine by the glass. For what we wanted, couldn’t fault the place! I don’t think there is anything better around Geraldine and would certainly return- well done Team VBC!More

Owners are very friendly and make you feel welcome, the food was great and just the right size portions. We also tried some of their craft beer and it was really good and up there with some of the big players, would certainly go back!

Called in to investigate the craft brewery and discovered that in addition to the range of beers that are all brewed on site, the 7-hour smoked ribs also smoked on site are among the best ribs I've had anywhere. Deliciously rich smoked flavour that's not...overwhelmed with the usual sticky sauce more commonly seen with pork ribs. On my must-do list when travelling through Geraldine.More

Made to feel really welcome. Dinner and some books for little one brought our early which was great. Ribs were divine, steak was reeeeally good. We tried the beer paddle and will be calling in for some flaggons. Highly recommend.

Called in for lunch and was a good choice. Tried one of their beers and was surprised at the quality. No after taste craft beer bitterness. Food was great, real country freshness. Friendly staff. Worth the drive out to.

Yes, it has a TV, but not sure how many channels, or how likely it would be to find the Super Bowl game on.
