My brother & I were staying in Colac for the weekend, coming up from the Mornington Peninsula and came across this hotel for a feed. The service by the elderly gentleman was lovely and they were quick and efficient in getting our meals to us. The Parmas were the perfect size and we enjoyed them a lot! :) I was going to get the smaller size but the man who served us said it was Parma night so I went for the large and was able to eat it all as it was delicious!

The east Parma was the meal I ate, I couldn't get enough, 2 size options for a smaller meal when ya not overly hungry but could eat.

Don't skip this restaurant for a meal, you'll be pleasantly surprised

Always a guaranteed 'full tum' and satisfied taste bud! Their Deviled Kiev is the best!
The old tables and chairs let the place down tho and the un-utilised'beer garden' area that needs much attention.

Just needs a bit more work on the outside eating area, the food is good and the serves are great, good country home style meals, and the service was great. A bit of a hidden jewel in East Colac.

The old guy behind the bar is the definition of a oxygen thief and has the worst service possible, girls serving are great to deal with but the rudeness of the man over-rides the atmosphere of the pub, 10/10 would not recommend!

The food was great , the girls serving had the most amazing laughs but the owner was a obnoxious drunk who had the worst possible attitude towards me and my friends , he's hospitality was non existent and his manners were vulgar , he just lost a work crew from eating there for the next year

Pub could really do with a renovation. Service was friendly. Food was indifferent. Chicken wings starter was good but chicken Schnitzel mains too thin, dry and overcooked. Just a microwave heated dessert. Steak from other members of my party also overcooked. In need of a proper chef.

Let's just say I have some reservations about recommending this fine hotel simply because I hope it never changes from what I experience because it was amazing. Friendly and caring staff that make being there so warming. There are a range of dining options. I was there to mostly carb load after 5 days hiking in the Otways. It was a Truck Driver's Parma that caught my attention. A chicken parma loaded with salami, ham, beetroot and cheese. Sensational. The menu is not boasting too many options but nor does it need to. There are vegetarian choices and GF. The wood fire warming the dining room on a winters day capped off a fine lunch with a Shiraz. I will come back to Colac just to visit this hotel again.

Picked the wrong night. 2hours for meals which were below par.
We later found the chef was working with an injury. Hope they get back to reputation standard soon. Prepared to try again.

Staff are nice. Food is horrendous. Had roast pork. Which was the special. Microwaved leftover potatoes. YUK. What seemed like microwaved pork which was not freshly cut from a roast. Thick claggy gravy. And don't get me started on the revolting reconstituted tiny pieces of what was supposed to be pork crackle. There was nothing "fresh" about the meal. The only thing they seem to do fresh is deep frying frozen food. I've had better dinner at a public hospital.

Fellow food, and life enthusiasts, avoid this place at all costs.
It started from the moment we exited the car, the stench of sweat and misery batting at our nostrils is exactly the warning you think it is and we chose to ignore. We entered the premises to be greeted by what I can only describe as an animated corpse (hereby referred to as 'AC') that was a welcoming as rusty star picket fence that no longer held any real purpose. Following the grunt directive through to the dining room, the crowd that greeted us seemed lively and satisfied and despite initial imposter feelings we continued to allow our hungry stomachs dictate the way to our table. The menu has a heavy theme of parmigiana and following our food choice, should you be unfortunate enough to have to dine here, we would probably recommend sticking to the theme. One positive that deserves recognition and is the only saving grace of an experience here is the waitstaff. They were friendly, accommodating and expertly navigated minimising negative interactions with the AC that we could only assume must own the place. As warm as their welcome was, even they could only serve us the food ordered due to menu unavailability with a sorrowful smile as a gesture of apologies for what was barely digestible. While one half of us ordered and proceeded to overpay for a disappointing, stomach cramp inducing dinner, the other was lucky enough to have dealings with AC in what you would think is a fairly straightforward task of getting a couple of beverages to wash the dried fried chicken down. This slight interaction resulted in blatant rudeness by the AC who deems customer service as a tiresome chore but highlighted the swift reaction of above helpful waitstaff who did their best to discourage any interaction of AC with any other humans.
Needless to say, we finished our meals to the best of our ability, neither supporters of wasting food, and hurried ourselves back through the stench of sweaty car park to hit the road and hopefully never look back, or in any orientation at the East Hotel Colac or it's delightfully morbid bar creature ever again.

There's a really rude old man serving there. That old man needs to go, whether by death or by obvious managerial decisions.
Now the food; the chicken was dry and crusty as that old man and was terribly over priced.
However the serving staff tried their best knowing they're fighting a losing battle.
Not usually one for reviews but this place deserves a warning.

Owner served a girl and entered the wrong price accidently, $65 instead of $6.50, she questioned him and he said " if you dont like it you can F off " other people at the bar stood up for her and he had a go at them as well, stumbling around clearly drunk. His own staff had to kick him out of his own pub! Disgusting behaviour and allegedly not a first.

Takeaway phone order
Lady was lovely when I rang up. Arrived to get my meals said gday to staff that was there and was looked at stupid with no response. Asked if the meal came with Apple sauce and was told it did. Unfortunately I went and brought some as there was none in my meal and had to get my own knives and Forks as they don't supply any with takeaway meals. ? Also no pork crackle. Meal wasn't very big for $25 could of went elsewhere and got better value.

It was a lovely night Family get together. I thought it is a great place very clean and there were a lot of groups enjoying their time with family and friends. No one was in a hurry to leave. It is lovely to hear people talking and laughing. I would recommend this place to all -thankyou

Excellent team excellent food. One of the female wait staff can remember our drinks, and meals, even when we have not been in for months. Great Aussie pub meals.

Shhh this is the place the locals don't want you to know about. The staff are so friendly the moment you walk through the door they make you feel like a local. The food is generous and delicious, with a range or meals everyone can enjoy. We had the creamy chicken pesto and deviled Kiev. Both fantastic and portions that will satisfy anyones appetite. Good wines to choose from too. Must visit when in Colac!

Food was fantastic, staff were great and very attentive to detail. Highly recommend their East Parma - a very different twist, and the Self-saucing sticky date pudding.
