Hotel Warrnambool

One of Warrnambool's more up market pubs, with a bit of an English feel to the interior style. The Warrnambool has a separate restaurant section with a good a la carte menu, the same kitchen also provides good quality bar meals. There is also a good selection of local and imported beer and wine.

Caledonian Hotel

The Cally is one of Warrnambool's busiest pubs - good clientele with a fairly diverse range of drinkers ( and punters) and standing room only on Friday and Saturday nights - good quality counter meals and an inexpensive lunch menu

Flying Horse Inn

Brand new (from the ground up) only three years old, separate sports bar with loads of big screens, huge dining room and kitchen, plus a kids play room. Good quality meals and excellent local reputation. Meal prices on a par with restaurants

Whalers Inn

Originally known as the "Commercial Hotel" and dates back to the 1850's - more recently has been totally refurbished and only the exterior remains unchanged - now a very up market style pub and popular night spot. Gets very busy on Friday and Saturday nights and is predominantly 18 -25. Much quieter during the week and early in the evenings on weekends. !

Seanchai Irish Pub

Not a traditional pub, but more of a bar, very popular nightspot and gets very busy on Friday and Saturday nights. Occasional live music ( Irish of course) and serves genuine Guinness.

The Royal Hotel

Located close to the railway station, the Royal does good steady business, the family bistro serves restaurant style counter meals at pub prices and you will always find a few locals in the front bar. The Royal also has a Pub TAB in the middle bar and possibly best described as a friendly family style pub.

The Victoria Hotel

Right in the centre of town, the Vic has a diverse clientele, from young backpackers to older regulars. One of those pubs that seems to be something happening from early in the morning to late at night - Friday and Saturday nights are fairly busy - Counter meals run 7 days a week - Beer, food and hospitality are all good

Rafferty's Tavern

Another of Warrnambool's new pubs, huge restaurant and kids play room - very busy all week. Good meals at reasonable prices and inexpensive kids meals. A good alternative to American fast food.

Elephant Bridge Hotel

This elegant bluestone pub was built in the 1860's and possibly one of the best examples of the two storey pubs common in this area. The pub was recently renovated and now provides good quality accommodation for people looking for somewhere different to spend a night
