    I am not sure why this place was so highly recommended - maybe because it is the only place to eat after 7:30pm in this town? You have to order drinks at the bar and food at another place. Even granted that they were very busy, the food took a long time to arrive - though it was somewhat better than expected (though diners around us had a different experience). The only nice thing I can say is that some staff was friendly and that that they re-seated us from a place that felt like a train station waiting area to something slightly nicer after I told them that we had made reservations weeks in advance.

    If you are dining here you will get fairly decent food at a good price. What you won’t get is table service or attentive staff, and for some reason there isn’t a great ambiance about the place. I think it is trying to be too many things to too many people.

    Great ambience and lovely friendly service. The staff went out of their way to accommodate us. We arrived early and they located a table for us to sit at. I ate locally sourced flake which was nice, accompanied by a tasty salad but the chips were cold and not crisp or crunchy. There was live entertainment in the beer garden for anyone who was interested.

    We made a reservation for dinner at 6pm, it was busy as it was australia day. There are two guys at the restaurant entrance, one checking the booking, one was escorting the table. As it was busy the lines were big and we were seated and checked in by the guy who was checking in the booking. He checked our name, and seated us to our table. The other guy came back and I can hear him speaking loudly over to the other guy saying he need to get us out of our table because he didnt see us check in. The other guy said that we were booked in but he was still not believing it because he didn’t escort us to the table himself. I was becoming upset as I can clearly see him pointing at us and I was ready to stand up and show him our reservation when another guy (from the bar) saw the commotion and checked the booking from their ipad which shows our reservation on time. Talk about no teamwork and poor customer service! I feel bad about that guy that he yelled at and not even an apology for how he is during what is meant to be a nice dinner. Not coming back again. Too bad the food is delicious, credits to the chef. But we don’t deserve to be treated like that especially if we are just visiting for a nice meal from a big drive.

    Large well located busy pub with a limited range of on tap beers. Restricted largely to Coopers. A noisy aircon made dinner frustrating as it consistently vibrated. Bar tenders were underinformed about the way whisky can be taken (neat whisky was a mystery to them). The gal taking my meal order was delightful and happy. Her customer service was exceptional. As were the table staff. Meals were tasty and well presented.

    What a fantastic surprise we had dining here. Great kids meals and I had a delicious steak and veg meal. A little pricey but you don't mind paying when it's good food. Great ambience, I can imagine on a balmy night with live music it would be fantastic to sit out in the beer garden and enjoy.

    Having eaten at this hotel before we have found the overall experience positive. We had a chic burger and porter house steak. Although burger came with some coleslaw, it would have been nice to get the option of salad and not just chips. The steak was cooked as requested and tender, but the quality of the steak was mediocre. A lot of surrounding grissel and thin. We both commented that the chips Although to some peoples liking we felt were dry and over cooked. It was a busy night, which may explain the quality. Staff were very nice and helpful. We will be back.

    This was our second meal here in a few days. We both had the fish, chips and salad. The fish was excellent in a light, tempura batter and the chips, while not the best we’ve ever had, were acceptable. Staff were friendly and efficient, service was prompt and having J J Cale as background music was an added bonus.

    This is a very pleasant venue with an innovative menu and excellent service. While I really enjoyed my kaarage chicken, my husband was disappointed with his Greek-style lamb bowl finding the lamb very fatty and lacking in flavour. However, he gave the hotel full marks for offering dishes with a difference - rather rare in country pubs.

    I have'nt been here for about 10 months. It seems to have lost its chutzpah.. Whilst not overly busy, it was chaotic. There was no real direction and staff were just getting through the next thing in front of their face. They were working as individuals and not as a team. Some were even disagreeing with each other about issues in the front bar and others were simply wandering around doing their own thing. No leadership evident. The food was nice. The wine list needs to be re-done, very uninspiring for what is available in Victoria.

    We are a group of 4 who ate at the Port Campbell hotel last night 6/11/23. A very disappointing experience: Barman was young and inexperienced, served the wrong wine, wrong glasses however did rectify the error although not very happy to do so. The food was almost inedible: 2 of us chose the Chargrilled Veal cutlet which was not a cutlet, it was tough and neither of us could eat it. The other 2 in our party chose the Fish which was offered as fried but burnt and they only ate a small portion. The hotel was recommended to us by our bnb host but so unhappy with our choice. JennyS

    Fantastic service as we entered. Friendly and told us what to do..gave us a menu and showed us the specials board...such a nice surprise as this is often lacking in most hotels. The fires going added warmth and cosiness. Great atmosphere and the pub made our stay in Port Campbell truly memorable. Thanks so much.

    Which came first, the chicken or the egg? Well, both, when dining at the Port Campbell Hotel. Parma Aussie style...a succulent chunk of chicken topped with BBQ sauce, ham, bacon, egg and cheese. Served with chips and fresh salad. It's hard to beat a pub parma. Very tasty. My better half chose the vegan Thai Tofu Salad...decent squares of fried, seasoned tofu perfectly arranged across a deliciously fresh salad. Light yet filling. And, being South Aussies, finding Coopers Pale Ale on tap was a bonus. The open fireplace kept us warm, the service was fast and friendly. Thongs, ugg boots, work wear, kids, locals, visitors. It was only a Thursday night but the place was full. Don't get to Port Campbell often, but will definitely be eating here next time we pass through.
