Excellent country pub food. Good choices & exceptional value. Very strongly recommended.d

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 30 Mar 2022
Many dinining establishments in Port Fairy are presently closed or otherwise restricted due to Covid limiting staff availability. This old country pub has stayed open, including on Monday nights. Booking strongly advised.

They have 3 new Malaysian chefs who are doing a great job. My wife had a Marsala lamb curry, which was excellent - It had the complex flavour and heat mix associated with good Malasian cooking. I had a huge charred tee-bone steak which came with white wine sauce, grilled onion rings, sweetcorn and broccoli. The desert on special was a chocolate cake (2 pieces provided) with chocolate sauce & icecream.
The 3 staff waiting on the tables were all very efficient, friendly & gave good advice. Although arriving there hungry, neither of us could finish our plates.

Whilst the bed was clean and generally comfortable enough, the room was very basic with no chair or seat. Wardrobe had no coat hangers. No teaspoon for coffee. Shower was just above a dribble.
Whilst I accept it is budget accommodation it is a bit over valued @ $120 per night. I have stayed in much better for that money.

Came here for evening meal after a bike ride down the great ocean road. Staff were fantastic and mixed in well with the group we had. Meals were excellent and well priced. Make sure you book though. Can reccommend the Parma and the Surf and Turf.

Country Victorians, we went into this Pub with the intention of drinks, meals and accommodation, based on the interesting history. Left very shortly after being made to feel distinctly unwelcome. The Star Hotel down the road, with a good local vibe and quirky accommodation ended up with our $$.

Attended with 3 others. A very good menu to choose from although limited choices.
Staff excellent and patron savvy. Setting in this 1844 "Oldest Licensed Hotel in Victoria" is great, with lots of interesting photo's to see. Now known as "The Stump"
Highly recommended.

Room tip: Meals in the Hotel are very reasonably priced

There is an excellent choice of meals here to suit any taste. The food we had was very good. Be aware the serves are quite big so bring an appetite. The hotel is not in the middle of town so it offers reasonable on street parking.
