They lied - size is everything
The iconic Grand View Hotel in Cleveland, overlooking Moreton Bay across to North Stradbroke Island, requires no introduction. One of Queensland's oldest hotels in continuous use, it is a magnet for both locals and Brisbane residents alike with its beer garden benefiting from the cooling breezes and stunning water views.

It's been some months since we last visited The Grand View, or Grandy, as she is affectionately known to Redlanders. Blame COVID. I was pleasantly surprised upon our return to discover the new, dedicated seniors menu available for lunch only.

I enjoy nothing more than a bite to eat out with family and friends. Good food and good company. What could be better? Okay - a cold drink on a hot day works well too.

I don't like wastage and many meals these days are just far too big. Honestly, I have been known to take any uneaten steak or chicken home for the cat or kookaburras.

A seniors meal is not a less interesting meal, simply one that is better proportioned for those of us with small appetites at this stage of the game.

The Beer Battered Whiting with Chips and Salad was delicious and a bargain at $12.90. The Coffee and Cake option for afters was enticing but I just couldn't.

Seniors Meals mean that we can get out for a decent sized lunch at a reasonable price. And we can do it more often. Sitting in the beer garden at The Grand View with a good feed and cold drink - priceless.
