The Inlet Hotel

45 Great Ocean Rd  Aireys Inlet, 3231

The Airey's Inlet Hotel sits at the top of a fill overlooking Fairhaven with views all the way along the coast to Lorne and beyond. There's a big beer garden with plenty of tables, which can fill up in holiday season. It was a bit too cold to sit outside for dinner when we visited, but we still managed to get a window table with great views. Inside the pub has a built in the 70's or 80's vibe. It has a medium sized bar area and a large bistro space.

The menu is fairly limited selection of standard Aussie pub meal. We had the fish and chips and a parma. Both were decent portions and well prepared and presented, with good chips and salad. The flake was in a decent crispy batter and the parma had a good tomato sauce, ham and plenty of cheese, and the chicken was tender and moist.

We were going to share a desert, but the orderer couldn't decide so we ended up sharing the lemon tart and the sticky date pudding.

Both were fantastic and we managed to finish both. Both were at the right level of richness...

The pub is certainly worth trying if you are in the area, and if you are there at the right time the sunset is fantastic!
