Checked out Hotel menu on web, looked good, prices were reasonable. When we arrived at hotel for a meal the next day the prices on some items had changed and not just by a dollar or two up to $8 difference. This was not the real problem, although it was steep. It was the Managers attitude, his body language and the fact that he rolled his eyes as he walked away and didn't really care when we brought the issue to his attention. The menu had been changed the week before and they hadn't updated the web. Now if Management behave like this they shouldn't expect much more from there staff. The staff were great. They were very helpful and pleasant.

Very happy, great food + good prices

The bar staff were very polite and very professional. The venue was very clean and spacious, child friendly venue. Our adult main menus were really nice, tasty and filling. Unfortunately the children's meal that we ordered (pizza) was not edible, the base wasn't cooked and the cheese had a... read more

Unfortunately the children's meal that we ordered (pizza) was not edible, the base wasn't cooked and the cheese had a funky tang. It resembled something that had been bulk purchased and... More

Our first visit to the Foreshore Tavern in a few years, we were not disappointed and will eat there again soon. We booked a table for 5:30 pm, there was already 4 or 5 tables occupied but ample room for lots more. Our meal was served very quickly, fresh Blue Eye, and very nice it was too, piping hot and...

If you're a local - you'll be happy here. If not... you'll get bar staff who treat you like you are an inconvenience. Seriously, the Manager of this place has a serious problem. He/she needs to give them a rocket. I won't be back - i'll drive past the place and go somewhere that makes me feel welcome.

Great food with a little over indulgence on Fresh local Scallops just couldn't stop at one plate! Meals were all of a generous portion however not that great for the waistline. Drink prices were also on par with most we visited whilst travelling. Not sure how family friendly the bistro dining is as they were in the throws of re... More

We chose this accommodation as it was very close to where we needed to be at Hobart Archery. We were really pleasantly surprised by the room and standard of cleanliness. Great value for money too. We ate 3 times at the tavern and every meal, especially the roasts were exceptional and tasty with great portion sizes. Yes it did get... More

It wasn't a busy Sunday night so there is no excuse but one of our party ordered a well done steak and what was delivered was closer to rare than anything. I ordered Lamb Backstrap on a Risotto base. The risotto was okay but the lamb was almost crunchy. Others in our group reported mixed results so if all you... More

Good sized meal, good service. Didn't like that the kids in the hotel were running around between tables (not the hotel's fault).

After a visit to the Foreshore Tavern last night, it has made it to the top of my list. Unfortunately for them though, the list is for the "restaurant to be avoided at all costs" list. The service was extremely slow from the beginning with the bar staff taking more than five minutes to get a drink, (fair enough if... More

We are not often in this vicinity so this was the first time at this establishment. Typical pub/tavern fare but reasonably priced and varied. Kids playground and a few amusements mean that this is a popular family outing - several groups there when we ate there with noise levels to match a lot of people enjoying themselves! Service was quick... More
