Nice little pub tucked away off the main road. Didn't like my marinaded pork meal at all was over cooked and dry but hubby reckons it's the best surf n turf he's ever had. None of the chocolate desserts were available which was disappointing. Friendly owner came up introduced himself. Bit higher priced than other places

Great hill top pub with view of the ocean. Food is fairy basic but its a fair deal cheaper than the waterwheel in lakes tyres. My risotto needed a lot more cooking as bits were hard throughout.

Oysters Kirkpatrick way overcooked and over sauced resulting in over salted and almost inedible oysters. Parma was very large and my boyfriend liked it. My order of garlic bread was dripping in margarine and was not enjoyed. It is all self service and our food wasn't cheap. Better pubs in Bairnsdale at half the price.

Lovely crumbed pork schnitzel with fresh crispy chips and delicious home made style coleslaw accompanied by tasty mushroom gravy. Terriffic clean, cold Carlton Draught on tap and a nice house merlot by the glass. Great work to Lance and staff, will be back sooner rather... More

Just finished dining with friends, the food was excellent and the service was fantastic, friendly and very efficient. I had the duck risotto which was delicious and reasonably priced. Highly recommend

WOW, what a find. We had dinner here two nights in a row. The first night we had parmi, chips & salad and I had chicken snitzel and vegies. I think the best pub meal we have ever had. The pub has recently changed hands and gone back to good wholesome Australian menu. The serves were large, hot and freshly... More
