This place is an absolute gem in the middle of Barwon.

Has a 'fancy pub' vibe without insane prices for food and drink.
The food, particularly the entrees and the steak, is out of this world!

Delicious food for a Sunday morning brunch. I had the Pulled Pork burger which was massive inside which came with 2 hash browns and my girlfriend had the Egg and Bacon Roll. Was a great serve serving which was also delicious.

I had the grilled chicken burger...absolutely divine! The bread was different to a usual bun but was absolutely delicious and added a new freshness to what would be considered a classic menu item! Will 100% be back soon!

I have been to Beach House twice in a week...both times all meals were presented and tasted fabulous , service was professionally relaxed and Covid restrictions respected.
There were guests of all age groups dining, and all seem to be enjoying the experience
Pricing for food and wine is affordable
Love it .
See you soon.

Ordered entree and main but only the main course arrived, oversight by staff person who took the order! Only had 1.5 hours to eat which was problematic with the delay of our main course therefore coffee was either takeaway or outside. Then when paying by card the preferred option a surcharge was added to our bill with no notification by staff. Disappointed....

We were seated outside on the rails to the street. It was absolutely freezing and I had to ask the waitress 4 times to put the heater on. When the heater eventually came on it was a whole lot more comfortable and enjoyable.

We booked for brunch here as I was recommended to it as a Coeliac friendly place and it was. They understood the difference between just gluten free and Coeliac Disease which made me relax and enjoy my meal even more. Thank You!

It was freezing with the door open.
I don't understand why on a cold wet night it was kept open. We had a wind blowing on our table the whole time.

We sat outside but the heater was on and blinds were closed so we were perfectly comfortable temperature wise. The food was really yum! And our coffee was delicious too. Overall we were very happy and would definitely come back next time we visit Barwon Heads.

We were not informed that we would be dinning outside until we arrived. We sat with blankets to keep warm it would have been good to have that conveyed at the booking as it was very cold night.

However as you booked online it clearly states in our terms & conditions which must be accepted to make a booking "Please note due to new regulations your booking maybe outside, if this doesn't suit we will do our best to accommodate."

The Beach House was fantastic! The salt and pepper calamari was cooked perfectly and everything was super tasty. We were seated out the front looking over the main street and the fairy lights in the trees really added to the ambience. Thanks for a great night Beach House staff!

Booked online for 3 people. No prompts online re seating arrangements.Didn’t mind sitting outside, however inappropriate to seat three on a bench seat facing a ugly. black wall. Staff weren’t prepared to move us to a table as they were booked! There was plenty of space inside and outside to maintain safe social distancing to add a table. Food was good. Drinks ridiculously priced $75 for a bottle of local Leura Park Blanc de Blanc. We pay less than half that when at Leura Park. Stayed for an hour ate and left as seating was so uncomfortable and not suitable for three. Realise Covid makes things tricky but if you are asking for bookings please make seating options clear. Disappointed as was looking forward to a lunch out. None of us will be going back.

Hi LisaB, Thanks for the review as it is a major part of how we grow our business! When making bookings online it clearly states in our terms & conditions that you may be seated outside which everyone has to accept to make the booking. As we have a limited number of seat we have been fully booked most nights, as for your comment on enough space inside, we completely agree ! however by law we can only have a maximum of 20 people (10 per space) regardless of the distancing.
