The Portsea Hotel, a historic landmark from the front and all freshly-renovated-chic out back host patrons daily seeking a shady spot in the beer garden under a striped umbrella to sip a cool drink and catch up with friends. It’s the Portsea constant, as things evolve around it. Bigger and better homes are built, new stores open and other towns on the Peninsula become the momentary hotspot. But the Tudor-style façade and everything it houses seems unflappable.
Once the evening cools and it is time to head indoors for a snack, the Portsea beauty does not disappoint. Across several dining rooms, both casual and more intimate, the food crosses different styles and tastes, the focus is the bountiful region’s offerings, according to their refreshed website.
“Portsea Hotel celebrates our region’s produce and brings it to your plate. Our menu offers pub classic, along with seasonal dishes to make the best use of local items.”
The beer garden is still the place to be seen, with rolling lawns down to the water now a place to practice yoga or Pilates, see live music- and well, be seen. The critics are unanimous, with every reviewer, Instagrammer and taste-maker on the same page. The Portsea Pub’s $7-million-dollar investment was worth every cent.
You can even stay in the beautiful hotel, in the chic, yet understated renovated rooms. There’s subtle nods to the past and its nautical hints no more than just that. Framed maritime flags mount the panelled walls and complement the pared-back palette.
“Only a one and a half hour’s drive from Melbourne CBD, Portsea Hotel will quickly make you feel like you are on holidays.”
We’ll certainly be there with a drink in hand this summer…
