Ordered the Parma - it was out almost as I got back to my seat. It was pre made and they just bought it out. The crumb was soggy and coming off. It's a pitty because the view is incredible

We found this hotel to be quite expensive and very average. The seafood platter was not worth taking photos of and the salt and pepper calamari was sent back for a refund.

The Lorne Pub is always an enjoyable place to spend the afternoon. Good selection of beers and a cider on tap. Amazing location.

Had a family meal here. A bit pricy for a pub meal but the food was pretty good and the serves were very generous. If I was to be critical the desserts weren't great. Give the ice cream a miss.
