Shipwright's Arms Hotel

Reviewed 9 April 2017

After trying to decide on one of the classier restaurants in Salamanca, we stumbled upon this place. Very good food (a cut above pub food for sure). As others mentioned, incredible sticky date pudding. Great wine list and inspired menu. Service was nice and the pub was full of local color. Also the haunt for the Sydney-Hobart racers.

Reviews were good so we strolled (with directional map)to this hidden gem The pub is quite old fashioned ie 70"s style but the food was great . Porterhouse steak at $32 and Chicken $28 .Very good crispy vegetables and decent pint at $9 .Find this place using a street map.Nice walk through interesting colonial housing .You wont be dissappointed

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.
