The classiest pub you ever did see, dining at the Grace Darling Hotel is like stepping back in time.
The first thing you'll notice upon entering is the original oak bar that stands stoically in the middle of the space. An island that's never lonely, you'll always find locals and visitors alike having a chilled drink there under the highly impressive chandelier. Around the corner you'll find surprisingly approachable tables, as well as a stage prepped to welcome the hottest musical or comedy talent in the area. A beautiful mix of old and new, Grace Darling Hotel takes the best from both eras and has created something truly special.
As for the menu, they lean into their pub soul with towering burgers filled with beef patties, crispy chicken schnitzel and vegan patties. Other dishes include potato gnocchi with preserved lemon and pecorino, lamb shoulder with a side of hearty puy lentils and mustard gravy, and steaks that have been sourced locally and prepared faultlessly.
And seeing as they are a pub, you can bet that they have a stellar collection of beverages. Household brands like Bodriggy, Coopers, Balter and Hawkers are bringing IPAs, XPAs, ciders and pilsners to the party whilst the vineyards of Malborough, South Australia and Yarra Valley are responsible for award-winning wines. Local, friendly and always up for a good time, The Grace Darling Hotel is every bit as treasured as its name suggests.
