Dog Friendly Dining around Stanthorpe

‘Pawfect’ Holiday Plans in Stanthorpe and Ballandean.

We’ve sniffed out some pawfect dog friendly spots for dining with your furry friend around Granite Belt Wine Country.

• Sutton’s Juice Factory, Cidery & Cafe on the apple farm is a must-do delicious tourist stop for their famous ‘best-ever’ apple pies.  You’ll find a ‘dog parking area’ in the shade with a water at the entrance.  Join your doggie seated here, or dine inside, just a short distance away.

• Jamworks Grourmet Foods Cafe & Larder is like a cellar door, but for jam, sauce and relish-lovers!  They use local Granite Belt produce to make more than 80 products and many can be tasted either on the menu or at the jam tasting bar before purchasing. There is a dog-friendly dining area on the covered verandah, with a ceiling fan and water bowl.
