“Dreadful service”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

We are staying in beautiful robe very. close to the Robe hotel so decided to go for lunch on the Sunday. There are six of us & after getting drinks & menus we were deciding what to eat. My husband had a glass with his stubby of beer when about to fill it noticed it had food stuck to the side of the glass. A lady was walking past at the time who worked there & my husband asked politely "excuse me can I please have another glass as this one is dirty?". She came over & snatched the glass out of his hands not saying a word & looking very angry & them returned with another glass & slammed it down on the table not saying a word. We finished our drinks and decided to find somewhere else to eat. We ate at the Italian restaurant in the Main Street & it was amazing! Super friendly & fantastic food!

We had a beautiful lunch here on our travels around SA. was a very quiet day and were a bit reluctant to stay for lunch as there were not too many people around, but lucky we did. I ordered the fish of the day, and it was amazing. best pub meal ever.
The staff were friendly and the view, what can I say just glorious.

we arrived after a day rode 144km on bicycles, from the Coorong - Policeman Point. Since it was the 24th of Dezember, there were a lot of young folks, unfortunatly, the kitchen did close before oure arrivel, but did'nt matter, we had a swim at the nearby beach, and then were ready to slep - the night was surprisingly quite - we liked our stay it this hotel. Breakfast was already in our room, so we could go on at 6am in the morning, just where on the road, leaving Robe, when the sun rose - to ride in the cool morning hours to Beachport.

This is yet another one of South Australia heritage-type pubs with a large Pokie room- which generally sustains these pubs financially. So again, we found the rooms to be average and below average in actual furnishings and fittings. The first night we had to take a back room, which was dirty, filthy bedspreads (beer stains perhaps?) and no blind on the window which overlooked the back balcony and corridor. We had to put up a blanket for privacy! Share shower and toilet down the long corridor. Next night we had a room on the front with front balcony, en suite, 2 beds and overlooking the sea. The view is fabulous. For the view, it is the best situation in Robe. The room furnishings adequate and a bit cleaner. The balcony posts showed signs of termites and general disrepair. It is such a shame that there is no S A Government Tourist rating or similar (like Europe for example) for these lovely old pubs. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the food was good enough. The price, in summer season, was reasonable for the balcony room, but for the back room too overpriced for the bad quality and uncleanliness. How difficult would it be to give the carpet a shampoo once in a year at least and wash the bedcovers!

Room Tip: Pick only only the balcony rooms with en suite. They are the better value and also likely to be the...

We dined at this lovely old hotel on two successive evenings as their menu displayed a more varied selection of meals than those on offer at some of the other venues. Fortunately we had booked earlier in the day, as the restaurant appeared to be quite busy with two sittings for dinner. We had no complaints with the meals and the wines on offer were very good, in fact we chose a wine local to the area and weren’t disappointed with the quality. Service was prompt and the meals were of a good pub bistro standard served in an old style dining room in this historic hotel.

It was on Australia day Long Weekend and the pub was packed! I received top service from the friendly bar staff! She was a wizz on the order machine and was extremely paitent and helpful with two european tourists! We had Oyster Kilpatrick for starters, they were as good as I've ever had them! I had the 600gm rump and it was cooked perfectly! The only thing which was a downer was the salad bar with only 6 choices of salad and they were bland and average! If they improved their salad bar for big weekends this pub would get a 10/10!

A bit of a mix up with our initial room had me concerned but the friendly staff quickly and professionally remedied the issue. Comfy beds and good facilities for the price. Great views from balcony rooms. I would stay again.
