The best thing about Barwon Heads Hotel is the location.
It gets pretty rowdy on Friday and Saturday nights but if you're looking for a fun night with a band it's probably just what you're after.
Good pub style meals in an open area bistro.
No fun for the kids.
Get a ride share or walk so you can leave the car at home.

I really don't like leaving 1 star reviews but the experience we had today was surprisingly bad. We booked our wedding washup here and was given the Bridge Road room. We soon found out that you can only have small share plates served here. As we booked for lunch most wanted a decent meal so they were told to actually leave the room to eat the meal and then come back which meant the party was spread out across the pub. Apparently normal meals can't be served there as the tables had no table numbers but they actually did which was really odd. Staff were unsure and contradictory with a lot of information.

We had a tab placed on the private bar but there was nothing stopping random people from walking up to the bar and ordering drinks which was placed on the bar. Only after I said something were precautions taken. As a pub I'm sure it serves its purpose but I'd certainly never have a function here.

Great Pub. Atmosphere was good and comfortable. Our table was served promptly and each meal was with the right person and did not need to play 20 questions to find out who ordered what - great staff!!! Food, well it would be up to the individual. Quality no problem, but selection seems "narrow" and to be directed towards the higher end $prices so as for value money is debatable. Go there again, yes, but would also see what else was available.

I have been wanting to visit Barwon Heads Hotel for a while and it did not disappoint. Fantastic location, friendly, accommodating staff, delicious food and cocktails and a wonderful outdoor area that we sat in for dinner. It wasn't overly crowded or noisy and the service was quick. Spicy marg was amazing!! Would highly recommend a visit if you are in the area!

Dropped in for refreshments and a bowel of chips. Busy but not crowded, had a chat with a barman on their own tap and sampled a couple I've never had before, very kind of him. We were outside yet protected from the sun and the wind which made for an enjoyable stopover.

One member at table 5 ordered oysters - and three were essentially empty. When we sent them back with a complaint a lady came back, dropped the plate on the table and said that was the best she could do.

They added one more small oyster. They did NOT replace the three non-existent oysters.

Which is a real pity because most of the meals were good (sword fish was very small).

Had a family catchup lunch, food was good but the salad with the Parmagina and the kids steak meal was EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTING, a handful of wilted, undressed mixed Lettuce leaves. When bought to staffs attention we were told sorry we have heard this before and I am sure they are making better salads now. Well we were some of the first to order as just after 12 so would of expected better, also to be told staff are aware and making better salads now was NOT what you want to hear. It was not a extremely cheap meal and I expect more from them, even for a kids meal it was not acceptable. Will we return, probably not, better off to get a salad from IGA or the fish n chip shop. The child at 5 even said she was extremely disappointed as likes salad. We also ordered coffee that took over 10 minutes to come out pre meal and was cold.

I love this place. It's our version of the Beach Hotel at Byron or the Cot in Perth. It'd get 5 stars if the prices weren't so high... $19.20 I think it was for a pint of a CUB craft beer. (AKA not craft beer anymore)
Still - a nice stop.
Can hardly afford to be a regular at those prices, though!

Went to the BH on Wednesday night, keen for a pub feed. But walked unfortch walked out disappointed. I had the beef burger, which for $24 was expecting more than a homebrand white bun, the chips were good but a sauce wouldn't go astray.

Great place in the heart of Barwon Heads to meet friends for a few no nonsense drinks and a bit of a catch up. Our last visit was for a surprise birthday, perfect location. Great service and not too pricey.

We love the BHP. The food is delicious, hearty, flavoursome and reasonably priced. The only disappointment we've had was an undressed handful of mixed lettuce as the 'salad.' The staff are the BEST. So friendly, hospitable, efficient. The dining room is a traditional Aussie pub, a big room, usually lots of kids and families so can be noisy. But that's the type of dining room it is. There are a number of other bars, quiet corners and outdoor areas to choose from.

This is the only pub in town and it right on the water so it's not going to be cheep. The staff were friendly, and considering how how busy it was they held their cool. Well done ?

I ordered the mussels - they were great. A little spicy but I liked that. The serve was massive, easily a kilo.

My partner has the King George Whiting - it was a good size serve, she got 3 good size pieces of fish. Also very tasty.

My friend also got the Parma, it looked great and she said it was tasty.

On a previous visit my wife and I had burgers. The chicken was fantastic but the beef a little dry, but still good.

All in all, I would recommend this place ??'?

Sorry guys had the surf and turf and it was tastless, the prawns were not good, there was no taste in the sauce and the cabbage slaw did not taste nice. I usually don't write reviews but my wife and I spent $102.00 on two of these meals only to be extremely disappointed. Not worth the money

Excellent location with inviting atmosphere to dine in. Delicious food and great bar.
I accidentally left my prescription glasses on our table and staff phoned and texted me to advise me I'd left them there, before I even knew I had! That's great service ??'?

It was ok. The parma was pretty good. The pizza was pretty average. If you are going to do fancy pizzas, it takes so little to make a decent dough and to cook it until it gets a little colour. The ingredients were great however.
I would say it is a touch too expensive for what is served, however I have no doubt it is something that could be very easily rectified.
The outdoor eating area is lovely and the staff seemed friendly.

Pork belly instead of pork shoulder. Pork shoulder advertised as caramelised (shoulder) pork meat with green mango & peanuts. Not sure that there was either mango or peanuts but definitely not pork shoulder. I have never been a fan of fatty pork belly. Substitution without discussion is not acceptable. Also not declared as being a cold dish.

Dinning with an elderly resident, the other two patrons I was with had the salmon dish which was hot and tasty, I had the battered Whiting which I've had before and loved however this time it was quite cold, nothing wrong with taste just wasn't hot. Won't stop me from coming again as sometimes things just go wrong, but thought it was worth a mention, love service and happy staff.

VERY expensive and underwhelming. A 200g overcooked steak is $34 with veg. The mushroom sauce is standard gravy with 2 halves of a sliced mushroom plopped in it. At least the staff are nice ????? would never recommend

Ordered a bunch of the share plates and they were all delicious. The salt and pepper calamari was the best I've ever had. Kids dishes were big serves too which made my 10 year old very happy.

6 family members had dinner on Saturday evening, the Asian style meals were good and well presented however the Lamb Shanks meal was served cold and the Felafel meal was burnt, cold and extremely dry and hard. Not sure why the big difference in quality of meals? Staff were very pleasant and hood at their jobs.

2 fabulous meals the lamb shank was off the bone tender! We'll be back to try more on the menu. We sat outside in the beer garden, shelted in the new semi enclosed area. Lovely river and Ocean views naturally; it helped it was a sunny day!

Staff are plentiful, attentive, friendly and helpful. I had the wok seared seafood in a Malaysian sambal curry. Seriously the best pub meal I have had for many years. Priced reasonably, the flavour was outstanding, the heat was just right and the combination of seafood was excellent. Fantastic!

We really enjoyed dinner at Barwon Heads Hotel. The food was great. We had the beef burgers, seafood linguine, rump and porterhouse steaks with pepper sauce. Excellent service and nice environment. We would definitely come back again.

Sitting in the warm sun on a beautiful winters day, with the best pub food you will find anywhere. Service is really good and covid compliant. Life is good ?

We were a party of nine and the food came out really quickly for everyone which was positive. Two negatives; pricing is now more expensive per main meal than most restaurants in Barwon/Ocean Grove area, but the quality is not as great. Value for money is not there like a good pub meal of the past. I ordered the 'crispy' pork belly ($37) and it was anything but crispy. It was also quite tough, with little else on the plate - disappointing.

A great pub with good food, good beers, decent wine. Service is usually pretty good, professional and fast. Great for families and the enclosed outdoor area is wonderful and warm on a Winter's evening!
