“Friendly and welcoming.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012 via mobile

My boyfriend and I enjoyed a wonderful meal here at the Apollo Bay Hotel.

Leah (manager) gave us some great guidance on what to order. We shared a garlic cob loaf & followed up with 2 mains - garlic prawns and roasted pork belly with calamari. The meals were deliciously tasty & we weren't able to finish them as they were generous serves. Yum

Leah checked to see we enjoyed our meals and made sure our glasses remained full) It was a fabulous relaxed experience ... Thanks to Leah and her team. We will be back one day!

“Nice for pub food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

Nice pub food and couldn't really complain, wasn't all served together which was a little annoying. But on the whole very enjoyable and the kids loved the garlic prawns.
