The Golden Orange Hotel-Motel, in Gayndah, is undergoing a complete overhaul of its menu and has introduced a new signature dish in conjunction with local butchers, which focuses on sourcing as many local ingredients as possible.
The Golden Orange is not alone with a new menu, as the Grand Hotel, in Biggenden, has also decided to introduce a new menu with all its meat and vegetables sourced locally.
The new restaurant at the Biggenden Grand Hotel can seat 120 people for lunch and dinner services.
The Big Orange, at Gayndah, was once just an orchard and some might still think that is the case but owner Neil Richards said he wanted to let people know the business was predominantly a café now.
