Good atmosphere within 5 minutes walking distance from Salamanca Place. In Battery Point close the old shipbuilding area and an old fashioned pub for the yachties. Fabulous meals (make a booking) good prices and the service is superb and friendly.

Staying in Battery Point we decided to try the local pub for dinner. We went with fairly low expectations and sadly even these weren't met! We were shown to a table and then forgotten about. We should have given up then and left but as it was fairly quiet I went to the bar and asked for service. To give... More

If you want a beer, pub food or a sit down meal to relax in Tassie history then come here and enjoy. Walk around and look at the sailing and yachting history on the walls and roof. .. This is a must stop if your staying in battery point or just a time out while walking around the historic area.... More

We dropped by early in the evening after a stroll around Battery Point and were lucky enough to get a table. The seafood chowder was incredible, fresh seafood in a delicate but creamy sauce. Great and friendly service.

Well located and enthusiastic staff. Dinner pricey but pretty good - perhaps it was because it was Sunday evening of holiday weekend. Nice area. Recommend walk around dock area and Salamanca - very neat

We had the most relaxed time here its a quieter area but a short walk to the city, salamanca and waterfront easily in 10 mins, the rooms are nice and have TVs and air/con, a breakfast room is also available. The very best Pub counter meal we had was here and the cheapest, it was divine!

A beautiful old pub with great meals. Lovely atmosphere with some great photos of Sydney to Hobart yachts around the walls. Enjoyed my two visits to this pub and can highly recommend a drop in if you are in Battery Point.

We dined at Shippies Bistro this evening for a work Christmas Party. The Bistro was packed to the rafters: no problem with that, seemed like a good atmosphere. We would expect that a fully booked restaurant/bistro might have put extra staff on for the night - no such luck! Our booking was for 7pm, yet by 9pm our table still... More
