First time in my entire lifetime couldn't finish 250g Eye fillet stake. Beef was either defrosted or just off.

The Marine Hotel has been around for a long time and has seen good days and bad days. But a recent visit proved to be a big surprise. We have not been there for years. New owners, renovated dining/bar areas, a bright open kitchen and good food. The menu has a very good selection and having been there twice recently,... More

Over the years we have enjoyed many a nice meal here. However, we were disappointed recently when we decided to go for dinner. The menu was limited and the food terrible when it arrived. My partner's meal (a chicken dish) was beautifully presented, but that was it. It tasted average. My meal (seafood) contained a few floury prawns and barely... More

Always liked the Marine, until now. My wife's serve of flathead was almost non-existent. Ordered a cheese platter with a selection of cheeses. One small piece only. Complained to the waitress. She spoke to the manager who scowled in our direction. Poor waitress reported that this was a standard serve. The little weed of a manager didn't have the guts... More

We went to The a Marine Hotel for lunch yesterday. It is a quiet place ( at lunch time ) with diners happily chatting away. Not a loud rowdy place, as some hotels can be very noisy. The light & sunshine was beaming through the large glass skylight panels. We chose the "specials deal" ( which includes a glass of... More

Food selection for an Ozzie pub is great. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Quality and quantity of food on the plate is superb. Very busy on a Saturday night and would suggest phone ahead booking to ensure a seat that suits. If early enough, there are quiet and semi private booths to add to the ambiance.

Thank Ian F
