Booze Bus Rocks into Town

Wine and dining in the Queensland wine capital has never been so easy.

A complimentary bus service is the latest item on the menu for diners at The Rocks Restaurant just outside Stanthorpe. It's the obvious way to get around any wine region - particularly after a day of wine tasting. The restaurant, which adjoins Honeysuckle Cottages, has also just imported new chefs Paul White and Deb Thurlow.

From 1st April, visitors to the Granite Belt can have free door to door service between their Stanthorpe accommodation and The Rocks Restaurant which is gearing itself up for the tourist influx during the peak Brass Monkey season.

Originally from the UK Paul has extensive international experience, most recently in New Zealand before moving to Ballina in Northern NSW. His partner Deb trained in Sydney and will focus on front of house at The Rocks, ensuring a warm and friendly atmosphere in the restaurant nestled amongst the granite rocks. Paul is keen to incorporate local wine and food produce into the menu.

The Rocks Restaurant is open for dinner Tuesday to Sunday, bookings essential for bus transfers. And if that's too much trouble you can always stay onsite in the Honeysuckle Cottages.
