Description: Glass walls at the front of the outdoor area and large windows opening to the sea air capture the light and view for all diners in all weather with new modern alfresco furniture. The Penneshaw Hotel – also known as the “Penny”- has both inside and alfresco dining areas giving the hotel a relaxed casual feel. However, there's nothing casual about the excellent presentation and consistency of the food. With a superb wine list, some of the best pub food SA has to offer and competitive function options the Penny is a perfect crowd pleaser.

Great place to rest between sight seeing spots. They have a good selection of tap beer and pub food is great. They have an attached bottlo with great selection of local wines.

An excellent menu, with a daily specials board including a daily vegetarian special. I had the seafood hotspot. Perfectly cooked seafood in a fish broth perfectly herbed and seasoned, with a generous quantity of seafood, including matron in the shell. My partners vege stir fry was also perfectly made, with strong flavours and again well seasoned.

We tried to eat dinner there. When we entered the dining area the "duty manager" called Richard said tersely "This area is shutting off". We commented that the tables inside were all reserved. He replied as if a great bother to him, "Yes, but I'll see if there is a place" There was NOONE in the restaurant. We were there during opening hours. We lingered, he made NO EFFORT to welcome us, ask what we might like [food? drink"] or be cordial in any way. His offer to " see if there is a place" was to go behind the bar and ignore us.
Find someplace else to go unless you want to be treated like dirt. There are good alternative cafes and restaurants within easy walking distance. Good luck.

We visited this beautifully renovated hotel over the recent long weekend, and had a wonderful evening chatting to the locals, eating the Friday night free pub food, and having a few games of pool and a few drinks. The hotel is within walking distance of everything in this picturesque town at which the ferry arrives. The food there is great too. It is where all the locals go on a Friday night and has a convivial country-like atmosphere.
We loved it!

We enjoyed a pleasant dinner, with friendly service and a substantial meal. Hotel is situated in a lovely spot overlooking the ocean. Made for a great interlude prior to penguin watching
