“Typical Pub Fare”
Reviewed 7 February 2017

It’s always a bit of a challenge feeding hungry teenagers on a budget while travelling. Often pub grub is the best solution as it’s filling and moderately priced. So it was a visit to Shippies at the Shipwright’s Arms Hotel located at Battery Point. It’s a gorgeous heritage building with nautical décor, the food is typical pub fare. Of the four main course ordered, three were well presented and delicious. One of the mains was cold, and I simply couldn’t eat it due to other reasons. I will say this, the staff at Shippies were apologetic, and we were well compensated for the error. Even before this food issue the staff were welcoming and friendly.

We went there for lunch with two other couples. The food was typical pub food steaks not cooked to order
served with big chunky fried potatoes and undressed salad. The seafood chowder was presented will lots of green herbs on the top and was just warm. The bread loaf was good warm and fresh. Would recommend for memorabilia but not the food.

Heritage building in a quiet area of Battery Point. We had just arrived in Tasmania and just wanted a nights rest. That is all we got, not enough sleep due to being over the kitchen with extractor/fridges, other electrical equipment switching on an off all night. Recommend asking for rooms 1 to 4, may be quieter/smaller. The room was clean, comfortable bed, large bathroom and good shower.

We have enjoyed dinner at the Shipwright's Arms hotel on previoius visits to Hobart so I had no hesitation in recommending it for our large group. Great atmosphere with friendly staff. The food is very good as was the service. I highly recommend the seafood plate. We didn't stay in the Hotel's accommodation so unable to comment on that.

Room Tip: not able to comment on the accommodation as we did not stay
