Description: Apollo Bay Hotel is located right in the heart of Apollo Bay, only 2.5 hours drive west of Melbourne on the breathtaking Great Ocean Road. Apollo Bay is literally 'Paradise by the Sea' - a small coastal town renowned for its magnificent beaches, farmers market and local community spirit, surrounded by the Otway Ranges and only a short distance from the famous Twelve Apostles. Enjoy casual dining by the sea in our nautical-inspired bistro and alfresco dining areas, or enjoy a glass of wine or boutique beer in our stylish bar - all the while taking in the spectacular views of the Apollo Bay Foreshore. We offer an extensive dining menu featuring traditional pub fare, pizza, delicious specials and a selection of seasonal dishes. Live entertainment most weekends. Accommodation is available and a function room is also available for hire. We cater for large groups (including tour groups). Please contact us for more information.

The food was good pub food. The very good rating is for the quality of the meal which was fine.I mentioned to the server when ordering that I thought the menu seemed a bit over priced and that I hoped the quality of the servings was in line with the pricing. No complaints on the food at all. Wine was also a bit on the high priced side but again we had a good meal and a good wine. Atmosphere a little tainted by a child at a near by table who just screamed and screamed for most of the time we were there..

Eric,
Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your experience with us at The Apollo Bay Hotel. I am pleased you enjoyed your meal and our wine selection. Your feedback is most appreciated. Unfortunately being a bit off the beaten track means we pay a little more for produce etc, we do however try to keep the cost being passed on to the customer to a minimum. We will be noting your feedback when launching our new Summer menu shortly.
I look forward to your return visit the next time you take in the beautiful Great Ocean Road.
Regards,
John Guilfoyle

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!
