“Walk into History!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2012

The historical feel, care, and maintenance are much appreciated. We did not stay here as a guest, but we had breakfast at The Shelburne Restaurant. The breakfast was above average, but nothing to write home about. Reservations are required, so be sure to reserve a time before showing up. We did have reservations, and were seated soon after we arrived at 9:30am. Unfortunately, there was a bit of a service issue during our visit. This may seem small to some, but the lady who took our order tried to do it without writing it down and screwed up my egg order........ I didn't say anything, as I can eat eggs many ways. However, I noticed at the table next to us that had around 6 or 7 people, she screwed up the egg order for two of those folks...... and, they let her know about it. Also, the "spuds" they serve were a bit too herbal for my taste and I didn't ilke them. The bread was home made and was quite good. Their bacon was too thin...... I'd go for a thicker cut bacon, which would fit the wonderful 19th century atmosphere that the caring owner has preserved so well. My wife just loved the english flower garden along the front of the building.

“Great place for a romantic evening”

Everything is great. Service, friendliness of staff and patrons, atmosphere, and food. Not cheap, but worth the price.

“mmmmmm, brunch on the patio”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2012

raw oysters with lemon and Bloody Mary shaved ice? Yes please!
Hang Town Fry = omelet with bacon, calamari, prawn and cheese = YUMM-O
Even the ice water had herbs/fruit added to it for flavour and interest.
The garden setting was lush and fantastic.

“Fine dining at its best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2012

We had dinner in the restaurant and as always it was a true dining experience; the food is fresh and imaginative; the ambience lovely; the service excellent! The next day we had brunch in the pub; while not as elegant as the restaurant the food was excellent as well as the service and atmosphere. A place not to be missed when visiting the WA coast!

“Perhaps it is better sometimes”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2012 via mobile

Came for late lunch in the pub.

The food was good: elk chili, mussel chowder, bread, fried oysters and jalapeño burger were all excellent. Unfortunately the wrong burger was delivered initially. Also unfortunately our order was delivered to another table first. In addition the bread was delivered without a butter knife, the chili and chowder did have spoons but the oysters and burger without utensils. When we arrived no vacant table had been cleared and wiped off. Wine was available but glass of Pinot Gris not very good. The list of wine by bottle looks wonderful.

This was the last day of a holiday weekend. Perhaps some of the problems were caused by press of business. That isn't much of an excuse since holiday weekends are always busy so that should be planned for.

We were disappointed because we hoped for better. Looking at other recent reviews it seems that this kind of problem is not unheard of. Too bad. Great food in a charming place deserves decent wait staff and organization in the kitchen. I have been here before and expect to be back.
