We own accommodation at Glenaire and confidently recommend The Tavern to our guests. Sue, Amy & staff are very friendly, the food is excellent and with a reasonable selection of wines and a good choice of ales on tap our guests always return happy with the choice.

Called in for dinner on our way from Cape Otway to Princetown. Had initially planned to have dinner in Port Campbell but on reading glowing feedback about the newly named 'Otway Central', decided to give it a go. Five very satisfied bellies later, really glad we did. No kids' menu as such, but they happily rationed a delicious adult Parma,... More

We had a wonderful late lunch. Traveling along the Great Ocean Road, this is a perfect stop for breakfast, lunch or just coffee! The food is fantastic!

A real surprise! The good experience started from the moment we pulled up to fill up with petrol and got service at the bowser. Haven't had someone fill my car for eons! A lovely bit of customer service. Then went in meaning to grab something to eat for the road expecting your usual roadhouse fare of hot chips and meat... More

I stopped here on a recent trip to fill up with fuel and came across the cafe when paying, I'm so glad I did what a great place. I had a burger, I think it was called the hill top open burger and wow it was amazing. Well prepared with a friendly smile from the young ladies behind the counter,... More

Having spent a few days in the area and asking locals where to eat, all said that Sue at Lavers Hill pub was the place. We checked it out for coffee in the morning, and were not disappointed, aided by a delicious chocolate cake. The local characters added to the fun of the place and we went back for dinner,... More

Lavers Hill is very limited at night. The Roadhouse is the local pub and whilst staff are very friendly the dining needs to step up. We had a meal here one evening, being e only people in the bistro at 6 pm. Limited menu which sounded great and the produce seems to be very good, but the dishes need some... More
