Gip’s restaurant is located in one of Toowoomba’s most historical buildings, Clifford House, in what used to be the grand old home’s billiard room.

Owners Jon & Julanne McCorley have preserved a slice of the city’s past by naming the restaurant after the much-loved pet dog of the historical owner, James Taylor. A rock commemorating Gip’s passing can still be found in the grounds today.

The James Taylor Room in Clifford House is now open for functions, conferences and weddings – a perfect venue for absolutely anything.

For a peaceful, quiet setting with beautiful garden surrounds, Gip’s is the perfect venue to soak up a relaxing atmosphere. Gip’s offers casual yet sophisticated dining both in the garden courtyard (heated when required) and in the interior of the restaurant. During the day in all seasons, the venue’s clear sides can be raised or lowered to your liking.

The restaurant offers casual breakfast, casual café-style lunch, morning and afternoon tea, coffee and cocktails anytime. Dinner is an a la carte menu featuring modern Australian cuisine.

The garden setting in the evening – with its beautiful old trees and lovely artificial light – will have you in mind of perhaps being anywhere in the world! Gip’s is within walking distance of all major Toowoomba attractions.
