A rainy day during our summer holiday so we stopped at the Happy Valley Hotel for a drink. Bartender was friendly, beautiful surrounds, quaint old pub. Thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Loved the old fashioned sitting room, and the old photos on the wall showing the history of the place.

We thought we'd pop in for a rest stop whilst cycling past. Once there we were drawn by the wonderfully renovated bar and dining area and spacious under cover beer garden. Cosy setting and attentive staff lead us to staying for an unplanned lunch. Generously sized good quality food with minimal wait time. A reasonable selection of beer and wine...

We had a meal at the Ovens Happy Valley Hotel and were very pleasantly surprised. This is a lovely country pub with a great menu, great staff, and good prices. We will be back again and would recommend it to anyone passing by.

We stopped in here for some lunch as we heard it was a good feed and it most certainly didn't disappoint. Our kids had crumbed chicken breast which was really good we had a salmon main, calamari main and ham an cheese toasted focacia, which were all sensational, my wife was a little under the weather so didn't eat much...

We visited the Happy Valley Hotel on the way back from the mountains yesterday. This place is simply adorable! We visited out of food hours so we only had a drink. It was just perfect sitting in wooden arm chairs on the vine-shaded verandah. I wanted to stay all afternoon! Alas we had to get home. I noted that nearly...

Outrageous to be invited in by the bar attendant confirming food was available. Directed to wait staff who took our order and money. Got our drinks and we're confronted by the same staff and informed that meals were not available!!! Disappointing, confusing, rude and truly unprofessional.

After seeing the old dusty pub closed down, we waited in anticipation for the new owners to open the doors....little did we know that we would be in for such a treat. This pub has everything you would expect from a local county pub and more... the local old farmers in the bar ... but little were we expecting the...

Off the mountain too late to have tea at home so looking for somewhere to have tea and passed by this packed hotel on Sunday night. Turned back to eat there and were not disappointed. We both had the Potato and Parmesan Gnocchi and were not disappointed. It was a generous size with a delicious side salad and we were...

We have been going to the Happy Valley Hotel for years on the way to the snowfields. This year we were surprised to find that it has changed owners and the restaurant out the back has been refurbished and there is a new fancy menu. The food has always been good here, but the renovated dining room makes the pit-stop...

This pub came recommended and did not disappoint - good food plus an open fire! My husband enjoyed his steak and veggies, our daughter had a hearty kids serve of penne with bolognaise, and my vegetarian lasagna special was tasty. Add a bottle of local Gapsted Cab Sav, and follow with apple and rhubarb crumble dessert - Yummo!
