What the Judges said in 2019

If you are in the vicinity of Apollo Bay we recommend you visit the Great Ocean Road Brewhouse. It offers good honest pub food, a wonderful selection of beers, and a good range of local and regional wines by the bottle or glass. The building’s old world charm has been married to modern standards. Staff were friendly, helpful and informative. For entrée we enjoyed garlic bread and delicious Southern Style Drumsticks with four pieces making a generous serve. The Chicken Parma had quality schnitzel and a good balance of ham, napoli and cheese. The 200 Gm Porterhouse Steak with a good pepper sauce was perfect in size for lunch – chargrilled exactly as ordered. The traditional sticky date pudding was good and enjoyable. Plus good coffee courtesy of local roasters Hello Coffee Grinders. Theme nights through the week added interest and value for money to the Brewhouse experience. 

Special strengths

Handsome red brick building in attractive location. Good quality comfort foods. Generous portions. Impressive drinks menu.  Good customer service. Family friendly. Good value for money.
