A popular venue which has undergone some renovation and brightened up in decor. Food was good quality and service very prompt. Not a high end venue but for a comfortable and reasonably priced meal this is good value

Comfortable country pub. Nice people and decent food. Beach front location and views of the sea. Don’t come expecting gourmet food that’s not what this place is. But the atmosphere is cheering and the food comes with a salad bar which was well stocked and everything we ate was tasty and fresh.

A very nice dining experience. The setting on the water is beautiful, good service but importantly the food was amazing. The seafood platter displayed an amazing selection of fresh quality seafood. The Mixed Grill was all quality and cooked on the Stone Grill added a great touch. It’s a must visit.

Discovered the Port Hughes Tavern for a random lunch and have been back each time we are staying in the area.
We live in Adelaide about a 2 hour drive from the CBD.
Planned to enjoy Melbourne Cup Lunch there and so glad we did! The atmosphere is fabulous... water views in abundance and the vibe was electric!
Everyone dressed up and the dining area was immaculately prepared. White chair covers with blue bows light and dark shades looked so impressive..
Three course meal $30 and just delicious and excellent menu.
The place was packed which is a testament to the owners and their staff!
Feel envious of the locals ... however will always have a meal at any opportunity.
The front bar is family friendly.... a good place to call in just for a chat.
Lovely out door area ... for those warm days ahead
A sincere thank you to everyone for a successful event!
If in the area meals are served at lunch and dinner
Enjoy!

So far as well could tell, this was the only licensed restaurant in Port Hughes. So they have a monopoly, I guess. But that does not mean they have slackened off in regard to service or price gouged, which can be the case when you have a captive audience.This is a family restaurant, so you have dogs in the courtyard and kids running around the tables. It is pub food.

The ordering is simple and despite being run off their feet the food came in a reasonable time. I shared a seafood platter with my daughter, and sadly we could not finish it all. Everything was very fresh.

So not for the candle lit dinner brigade, but if you have taken an Air BnB and don't feel like cooking, a very easy stroll to the jetty and order up at the bar. Too easy.
