Vineyard Cottages is one of the few retreats on the Granite Belt to boast its own licensed restaurant. The restaurant is a Stanthorpe institution and housed on site in the old Presbyterian church building dating from 1906 and still featuring the original coloured glass windows. Guests can enjoy fine dining in the restaurant or in their cottage.

The restaurant features the best local produce and wines of the Stanthorpe / Granite Belt as well as other regions of Australia. The Vineyard Cafe lunch and dinner menus blend culinary tradition and the intelligent use of a wide range of fresh local produce with an increasing emphasis on locally grown and organic sources.
