Took my Mum to Billson’s for her birthday and we had a wonderful time. The venue was amazing and far exceeded my expectations for a great way to celebrate my Mum’s birthday.

I highly recommend this venue to others who want a nice casual dining experience. We were seated in the Speakeasy and we loved it.

The food was amazing too!!! And the staff were very welcoming and gave the venue a wonderful vibe. We will definitely be going back to Billson’s.

Absolutely lovely experience. Staff (especially Anthony) are very friendly and capable, made lunch most enjoyable. Fun to try a few samples of gin and cordials. The food was very reasonably priced and delectable! Only problem was turning up without booking once but after info from staff it is very easy to book on-line. Will be a new favourite place to lunch in Beechworth.

Billson Brewery is an amazing place for lunch and to purchase cordials, flavoured gin and liqueurs not to mention a wide range of merchandise. Great staff and excellent customer service. Great to see the owners make a 100 percent improvement to this business. Onsight viewing of how their products are produced. Also a fabulous collection of National Trust carriages from bygone years. So lucky to have in Beechworth.

We had a great time at Billsons! All staff super friendly and helpful. We booked to be in the speak easy bar and were accidentally seated somewhere else. This was very quickly rectified with little fuss and they found us a table in the speak easy.
The guys in the bottle shop were amazing, brilliant customer service. We left with big smiles on our faces along with plenty to drink.
Great food, amazing drinks and all at a very reasonable price. We will be back again soon!

most of the group thought the menu and meal was very good, unfortunately one member of the party had dietary limitations and the menu just didn't cater for that person, although the chef tried to assist with variations but choice became non existent.

Our group of 4 totally enjoyed our visit and lunch at Billson's Brewery. The staff went out of their way to be helpful and the food was delicious.
The staff in the tasting room were also very friendly and generous with their time.
We also found the whole complex interesting. A great way to spend some time.

My sister and I visit Beechworth about twice a year and always head to Billsons to stock up on goodies. This was our first time eating there and we were not disappointed. We had an excellent dinner on Friday night in the speakeasy. Lovely, attentive staff and fantastic service. Great food and wine also. We are big fans of Billsons creamy soda so that is definitely a must try for any creamy soda fans. Loved it. Will be back :) Brittany

We absolutely enjoyed our time at Billsons in the Speak Easy Lounge. The Gin tasting paddle was perfect as was the cheese and meats platter - generous enough for 2 people at lunch time. The staff were polite and extremely helpful. All facilities were very clean and well looked after. The production viewing areas were also interesting. Perfect venue for functions and would definitely go again.

Me and my wife came with our two children and were seated in the speakeasy in the middle on the high chairs. This would have been fine if we didn’t have the kids but all it took was for us to ask about another table and we were quickly escorted off to another more suitable table. The food was amazing 10/10

The staff doing the cordial tasting were quick, cordial (pardon the pun) and happy. A real pleasure to be around. Then we sojourned down to the Speakeasy for lunch.... where we were told in no uncertain manner that there would be no deviating from the menu. Eg: if you dont like tomato in your burger, tuff! Pick it out yourself. Thats beside the point, our own parents would tell us to do that. BUT it took 45 minutes to actually receive our meals after being the second family into the building and order for lunch. After all the newer arrivals received their meals I asked where it was. It came down pronto- cold- on the heels of a haughty waitress who told us ' sorry for the wait but we just did 50 meals' . The chicken in the burger was a tough fatty cut and the bun was soggy. The steak sandwich was also an awful cut of meat with tonnes of fat and what looked like a bone. I expect much better for a $20 burger. Would not recommend off back of dodgy food and rude service.
