  • We stopped in here for a few cleansing ales in the main bar. The staff are friendly and helpful. There are big screen TVs to watch the footy on and a great view out the big picture windows. Great pub.  more »

  • The best selection of craft beer on the Great Ocean Road. The spiritual home of Prickly Moses Brewing, there is a purpose built tap room for those really wanting to sample the best of the brewery out the back. The food here is pretty good, if you mind the decor around the bistro, are intimidated by the locals in the public bar, or the screaming kids in the play area, just head outside and enjoy the views. It's heated and undercover when the weather turns sour. Just be warned, the locals don't drink much craft and so the packaged beers can be a little long in the tooth. Don't expect anything too fresh unless you know it's a recent release or the Prickly Moses on tap. Also don't expect the bar staff to know much about the beer, most are backpackers passing through or old timers who could care less. The accommodation upstairs is basic but serves its purpose as a cheap place to rest your head. Checking in can be a bit of a chore as you need to do it at the bar. Most of the staff don't know the process and so you will likely be waiting for the owner. Perhaps remind him he needs to train his staff to make things easier on himself 😉 Otherwise comfortable and reasonably clean for a old hotel.
  • Great vibe, friendly neighborhood pub with a great selection of food and drinks. The food was okay. There are several fire places inside keeping it nice and warm. Should definitely stop by when in Apollo Bay.
