To sit up on the deck on a lovely sunny day and take in the most magnificent view afforded by the location, is one of the Mornington Peninsulas absolute joys. Be sure to choose a day that is not too hot so that the seating outside can be utilised.

Portsea Hotel for lunch. Good service (greeted with a smile by staff on arrival) meals ok and great selection of local beers and not overpriced. Great for families and no need to book. Only criticism decor is dated and needs an update as it still looks as if it's in the 90's

We had a special family occasion (group of 20) to celebrate and the hotel pre-arranged for us several tables. Dinner was well handled, the food excellent and all was brought to the table together. The drinks were great too, with a balmy breeze. A great evening.

We visited this hotel for drinks and were amazed at the wonderful views over the sea. Staff were very friendly and we all enjoyed ourselves including our Springer Spaniel. There was a very good menu on offer but we didn't have anything to eat today.

This is a seriously big hotel. We were amazed. The staff were all friendly. We sat and had amazing views. We ordered meals and they came in less than 5 mins which was slightly disconcerting. But the calamari was nice, the ages sirloin was ok. It comes medium but was more like rare with a chargrilled outside. Would like to...

My girlfriend and I had two mains and a glass of wine over lunch, food and food service were good. However, after we finished I went to the reception desk at the front to ask for directions to get to a nearby beach, Portsea Backbeach and was laughed at for not knowing where it was by an overtly sarcastic man...

Lovely old venue with nice views of the Bay. Pub style menu and reasonable prices for the location. Nice atmosphere. Looks like it could get busy on nice warm days. We had the pulled pork burger and the mussels. All was nice and a fairly generous serve too.

Visited Portsea Hotel for lunch with a relative who is in a wheelchair, there are stairs to get to the disabled toilet and although they have a mobile ramp, it was broken, so no access and then we were told the toilet was "out of service". Very poor attitude towards their disability services, it should be a priority!

Have been to the Portsea Pub only once before around 11 years ago and was really looking forward to going again for lunch. This time it was a beautiful sunny day on a holiday Monday around 1.30pm. On arrival I could see most of the tables were not only busy but stacked up with empty glasses and plates. We managed...

We are on a golf trip and both days we tried to get in for dinner. Sunday night we made it and the manager hurried us along. Monday night we got there earlier than the day before but we missed by 10 minutes at 8.00pm. We ended up at the Sorrento Hotel and the place was buzzing.
