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.

Came with my husband for a few drinks and dinner. I had the KI King George Whiting which was beautiful, husband enjoyed his chicken Parma. All the staff we came across were friendly and welcoming and food came out in a decent amount of time.

We were a group of 2 couples staying locally so walked to the hotel on our first night to check it out. We were greeted warmly and offered an inside table. We had to go to the bar to order and service was friendly and efficient. Food was of a high standard, above pub standard, and well presented. Drinks were reasonably priced. We enjoyed it so much we came back on our 2nd night stay and again had good service and food. We were very happy with food and service overall and especially pleased it was so conveniently located.

The setting was lovely and there was an interesting menu although neither of us were thrilled with our orders. My husband tried the local specialty which is some kind of crayfish and he couldn't' figure out how to get to the meat in the little rascal. My curry was unimpressive. but then again, there aren't many choices in this little town. One couple got off the ferry and discovered that it was too late to get a reservation here and the pizza place was almost closed but gave them some bread.

This hotel offers great food and fantastic views. The staff are very friendly and we found the regular locals very helpful and informative. We were lucky enough to see dolphins swimming while enjoying a quiet ale. The hotel was very clean. The food had good choice with fresh produce and good adily specials. I reccommend a visit.

Great place to relax after a busy day touring. We relaxed with a bottle of wine and enjoyed the view before ordering. The meals were large and certainly enjoyable and the waitress was a delight. It's got the country pub feel, so don't expect a posh five star experience.
