Shipwright's Arms Hotel
Ranked #36 of 48 Hotels in Hobart
Reviewed 21 March 2017

Wow! We stopped in at the Shipwright arms on the recommendation of someone at Jackman and McRoss,which doesn't serve dinner. We discussed dinner options, which seemed ok.

We returned for dinner which turned out to be EXCELLENT! We had the fish of the day with vegetables. We also ordered a plate of chips (fries, if you're American). We all loved our dishes including the one Risotto.

Added to this was the excellent service from Stacy.

Thank you!

Pricing was reasonable.

If we ever return to Hobart we'll be back.

For a Saturday night meal with 3 friends, we were quite satisfied with the meals we were served.
While I agree the menu is typical pub fare, it seemed well done and didn't disappoint four hungry guys.
I really enjoyed the seafood chowder.
Overall a good experience for the night out.

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.
