The steak, duck risotto, and kids cheese burger were all great. Large servings and Very fast service - even though they were completely full (on a winter night in July) with a lively atmosphere. The wait staff was very friendly. Definitely go here
Honest pub with great selection of local brew. Staff are youthful and knowledgeable on the different beers. We opted for the stout and summer ale which were both magnificent! The stout has essences of a fresh loaf of bread! Tuesday night is parma night - a schnitzel with tomato paste and cheese with different toppings. Fun and family friendly environment.
I love, love, love this place. It has an atmosphere all of its own, that is hard to put into words. My suggestion is that you try it for yourself. Whatever you do, don't try to experience the place in a hurry. Linger with a drink or two at the bar (or the fireplace in winter). Then venture to the bistro for some quality melas at very reasonable prices. The wife & I visit Apollo Bay quite regularly, and Great Ocean Road Brewhouse is always on the list.
We stayed there on Saturday Night. It was vary disappointing because it was EXTREMELY LOUD. Without any warning upon check-in, this place has a bar on ground floor and hotel rooms on the second floor. Due to loud noise from drunk people and live music, we couldn't sleep at all. The bar had a live band just right underneath us. We were really tired and needed a sleep but it was a mission impossible. I called the bar and asked what time does the bar close, a staff named David (if I remember it right) said '1AM' Then I asked what time does the live band finish, again he said '1AM'. then he talked to me like too bad for us to choose to stay here, this is hotel and it is normal to be this loud. No apology or sympathy for us. I started to cry because I was very tired and felt hopeless to fall asleep. Do not stay here if you wish to have a pleasant stay. The bin under the sink in the room was also not cleared and left behind from previous guest.
Nice average meal. Large serving of Fish & Chips (couldn't finish my fish). Prompt service. Lovely wait staff. Menu was quite minimal and somewhat lacking of choices. Bistro only opened at 6pm, too late for families with young children. Bistro bathroom had not been cleaned since.. I presume the previous night (we were first seated and first to use facilities). There was a human hair on my fish... I dealt with it and didn't give feedback to the restaurant.
