This pub is a very old pub that offers really well priced meals of very good quality. It is not for the 'fooderati' with imaginative swirls of 'dusts', 'froths' etc.. The meals are honest, quick (particularly at lunch time) and very tasty.

Cosy old world nautical décor. Hearty lunch. Prompt service. Lunched with business colleagues who all enjoyed the experience. Definitely on my list for a return.

Loved the location, food, staff and décor. Looked after our group of 21 so well on first night, we returned the next night and were given our own separate room upstairs. Excellent all round.

The cost of the food was brilliant and was the quality. The only issue was being sat next to the bar (not in it) and having to listen through bar patrons swear all night, it was disgusting.

My friends and I regularly eat out around Hobart. We've been to the Ocean Child before and it's always been great, but we're particularly happy about the introduction of the discount meals. With a small, but good, range of $10, $12 and $15 meals to choose from, it would be a great place for a family to go without paying... More

We decided to have dinner one wet summers evening. The menu is interesting as the same meal is served in 3 different sizes $10 (small) $15 (normal) and $30 (MEGA). I had the special of the day which was grilled Trevalla with steamed vegetables. These included cauliflower, broccoli, red cabbage, snow peas, carrots and mashed potato. My partner had the... More
