An old pub, nicely renovated, more than just a pub meals, but also offering classic pub food as well. Average prices. Friendly staff, and no complaints. A great place to eat.

Dinner at this Hotel was very disappointing. Lacking service by staff while dirty plates sat on unoccupied tables outside. We sat outside for dinner as a warm night. Outside terrace needs some TLC with lots of weeds taking over something that could look spectacular. Husband...More

Ate here a couple of times. Food was very good both times, but was a bit disappointed that the seafood wasn't fresh.

Good menu made to a high standard while still pub-style, relaxed food. Utilises local ingredients. Multiple vegetarian options. Great setting with beautiful ocean views.

There’s a beautiful view from the restaurant here. Unfortunately, for me, the food didn’t quite measure up to the view. My wife was very pleased with her dinner, battered KI whiting, chosen from the pub Classics menu. I chose Port Lincoln Chili Sand Crab Fettuccine...More

We had a free drink offer if we eat there as we were staying at a neighbouring hotel with no restaurant facilities.

Glass walls at the front of the outdoor area and large windows opening to the sea air capture the light and view for all diners in all weather with new modern alfresco furniture. The Penneshaw Hotel – also known as the “Penny”- has both inside and alfresco dining areas giving the hotel a relaxed casual feel. However, there's nothing casual about the excellent presentation and consistency of the food. With a superb wine list, some of the best pub food SA has to offer and competitive function options the Penny is a perfect crowd pleaser.
