With Melissa and her Mum in town, we decided to do the touristy thing and drive down the Great Ocean Road. We arrived in Lorne around 12pm and by this stage Katie was in need of some form of nourishment. At this time of year Lorne is always busy and the town was packed and the traffic backed up on the main thoroughfare. It looked like it might be difficult finding a park, so I suggested we try down at the Lorne Hotel. It was still pretty early so I thought the pub would be reasonably quite. Thankfully I was right and we were able to get a park and a table with a nice view quite easily. It’s a great spot, no doubt about it, lovely views, even when it is a bit grey and dreary. The prices however, are a bit on the steep side – even for a tourist trap like Lorne. I had forgotten just how ridiculous the prices here could be. I mean, $27 for a standard pub parma in a order at the bar, get your own cutlery kind of place. I ordered the fish and chips – Local Gummy Shark, beer battered, served with average chips and an uninspired salad all for the bargain price of $26.90. Katie and Melissa ordered the Spaghetti Bolognaise and Maria got an entree of the Prawns. No one was particularly impressed by their meal – I felt a bit bloated after mine, the fish was a bit tough and seemed over cooked and the batter was very heavy. Unfortunately my phone was flat at the time so I didn’t get any photo’s. I wouldn’t recommend eating here, the prices are just too much for what you get. I’d grab and drink and enjoy the view and then head somewhere else.
