Hidden in the back of the Hotel is one of the best meals you can find! Salt and pepper mix, steak, schnitzels..all cooked to perfection! Nothing meets or beats the value and taste. Great rapport by all the staff, makes for an even more enjoyable feast.

We had dinner here on the way to Batemans Bay and was pretty good. The actual pub is not the best, very old and tired. We sat outside for a while but really dirty, needs a good sweep. Dinner was nice though, salmon cooked well and because i didn't want chips got salad and vegies which was a bonus. Took... More

We stopped in for Lunch we ordered some Chilli Prawns, Salt & Pepper Squid with Salad and Chips good tasty food with friendly service. The graffiti in the family area wasn't appropriate and this must be the only Pub in Australia that doesn't have Eftpos.

Great place for a cheap eat. Nothing fancy, but the food was good enough for the price we paid. Would recommend.

Good place to have a quick bite for lunch and at $5 who can complain. The building is in desperate need of a revamp though. Good place to feed the kids cheaply.

Hotel very run down and shabby to what it was many years ago (70's) when as a young family our annual holiday was spent in the area. Bistro was clean, service good (we were the only patrons at 6.30pm). Food, well not good at all; sauces appeared to have come out of a tin and salad consisted of a cup... More

I fully agree with the previous review, stepping into the Marlin Hotel was stepping into the (dark) past. Back in the day we would always stop in for a beer & a feed on our way past, we loved the place, it had atmosphere & was fun, but checking it out yesterday, it seriously has not been looked after for...

I called in after I'd eaten in Ulladulla for a beer. I'm visiting from the UK, so I've just worked out that towns have these combined hotel/pub/bookies type places. I can honestly say I've never seen an establishment like this anywhere in the world. It was like being teleported back to 1982 or so. It was almost as if a... More
