Food and Dining

The Lockyer boasts a wealth of dining options, from restaurants to pubs to country cafés and more that will have you kicking back and relaxing as you enjoy fresh regional produce and friendly service.

Visit quaint little towns like Forest Hill for a café setting meal. Café 4342 and Café Sorella are both renowned for their great tasting food and their beautiful homewares and gifts.

Also located in Forest Hill, the heritage-listed Lockyer Hotel has been a feature of the local landscape for over 100 years.

Laidley’s heritage icon Das Neuman Haus is home to Annie’s Place Café where you can sit under the shade of a 100-year-old Jacaranda tree and enjoy a light lunch, Devonshire tea or strudel.

Scattered along Laidley’s main street are bakeries and cafés including Three-Sons Café, a modern espresso and tea bar, and the Rustique Rose Tea Room and Florist, where you can relax and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and smell the beautiful flowers. Jump back in time and visit Eagle Rock Café where you can enjoy a menu that pays tribute to classic Americana with listings such as burgers named after the Big Bopper, James Dean and Bill Hailey.

The Staging Post Café, located inside the Lockyer Valley Cultural Centre in Gatton, offers something for every meal of the day. Enjoy a delicious buffet breakfast on Sundays and an enjoyable meal for dinner on Fridays. Staging Post Café also offers catering option for groups and functions.

Also located in Gatton is Jak and Mo Taste Co. where food is created from fresh ingredients and made with passion. Visit Jak and Mo. Taste Co. for breakfast, lunch, a quick coffee or a divine dessert.

If you’re in need of a hearty country pub meal, the Lockyer Valley doesn’t disappoint. The Mulgowie Hotel, Queensland National Hotel, The Royal Hotel and Withcott Hotel all offer great meals at a reasonable price. Grab your mates, or significant other, and head on out for a filling and tasty meal.

First opened in 1914, the award winning Porters Plainland Hotel is an icon on the Warrego Highway. Porters serve everything from gourmet burgers to salads, seafood, pasta or a tender steak from the char grill. Relax in the funky bar and listen to the live music every Friday and Saturday night.

Whether you’re a local or just passing through you can rely on the Lockyer Valley to provide you with great food made with fresh regional produce making each bite an unforgettable experience.
