This was recommended to us as being good pub food and it was: generous servings, tasty, with pleasant unobtrusive service. The fresh fish was delicious served with a very tasty salad and chunky chips. Wine and beer selection is good while not extensive. We had not booked, an advance were accommodated at the bar which was fun. The place was... More

The menu choices, food quality, portion sizes and service were all exceptional. If you choose the chicken parmi, I suggest you starve yourself beforehand as one serving looked like it would feed a small family! We didn't stay in the hotel, but, from what we saw of the restaurant and toilets, it could really do with a bit of a... More

If you are starving this is the place to go. I have never seen a parma as big as the one they serve here. My choice however was the battered fish with chips and salad. Certainly a generous serving and with a lovely Tasmanian wine to go with it thoroughly enjoyable. The prices were reasonable especially for the size of... More

When planning our few days on Bruny Island, we did not expect to find noteworthy food in the southern part. Bruny Island Hotel is delightful in atmosphere, had very friendly staff (you order and pay at the bar but the bartender was knowledgeable and helpful) and the food was delicious as well. The only item I'd pass on was the... More

This hotel serves some great pub lunches and dinners, with large servings, fresh seafood and local produce, and a children's menu. The pub is pretty busy in the evening so advisable to make a reservation. The dining room looks out over the water, but there are also tables outside ideal for lunch. On an initial visit we had a warm... More

Great lunch - great atmosphere and great views. Be warned the servings are big. A starter was enough for me! The mushrooms on toast were great. Good drink selection as well. Would like to visit again.

It's one of the few restaurants on the island, and the team also runs the accommodation. People are friendly and kind. Food is mediocre. We had the seafood platter for two, not impressed. Maybe we should have ordered fish and chips or chicken parm. If there's nowhere to go and you do not feel like grilling in your rental house,... More

Lovely, relaxed pub with delightful roaring fire. Good selection of beers and wine with emphasis on Tasmanian drops. Prices are moderate. Visited with my two sons in the school holidays. We had the steak which was perfectly cooked, chicken Parma which was ENORMOUS, and fried scallops. All the food was very tasty and we all left happy. Of special mention... More

A couple of beers, a great feed at one of the outdoor tables virtually on the beach and a magnificent sunset to boot, made our Bruny Hotel experience one to remember! Wished we were travelling in our RV as you could even park up for the night!
