We moved from the Emerald area over eight years ago to travel, so decided on a nostalgic and reflective dinner while visiting the area. The Paradise Valley Hotel hasn’t changed much over many years except for its name. We used to know it as just the Paradise Hotel and was one of our regular haunts. Deciding on a couple of... More

Tried the clematis pub last week, the interior was nice, little old - we requested to sit outside which was lovely and heated, ordered drinks and a cob loaf to start, was a shame the cob wasn't pre cut and baked with the butter in it, created a horrible mess from the crusty exterior and the butter wouldn't melt because...

We went for a birthday lunch to this place by accident (the place we'd originally booked had no power). We noticed the hotel on the drive and thought we'd give it a try. It was a very nice surprise! Staff was very pleasant and effective food came quickly and it was very well prepared and presented. It tasted really good... More

On a wet winters Saturday drive in the hills what you’re looking for is a great pub with an open fireplace, or two, great service and terrific food. Look no further, the Paradise Valley Hotel is only 20 minutes from east link up Wellington road in Emerald off the Belgrave-Emerald road. Our planned lunch stop turned out to be a... More

Great place to catch up with friends for a great meal. Food is generous and very tasty, great selection but the steaks are why I choose the Paradise. Great all year with the deck but great in winter with the fire and cosy atmosphere.

We had lunch on a cold and rainy afternoon at The Paradise. The food was really good and the service staff were either brilliant, or non existent. There were only 3 or 4 other tables being served and initially our waiter was very attentive and friendly, then once the main was brought to the table, nothing... Moving on. I had... More

A quick call in for a drink. They had a nice Pinot Grigio. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Fantastic view and very peaceful in the afternoon winter sun. Hope to return for a meal.

While staying in a nearby B&B, the wife and I ventured out to the Paradise Valley Hotel. It was midweek, we were quickly greeted and seated by the indoor fireplace with drinks in our hands within minutes. There was an excellent range of food available and reasonable prices.
