Athelstane House is a 90 minute drive from Melbourne via the Geelong Freeway and Bellarine Highway.DETAILS
Set in a grand 1860's guesthouse and just a short saunter from the beach, this friendly bistro successfully captures the seaside holiday mood. With its bright lemon walls, welcoming staff and breezy atmosphere, Athelstane is comfortable rather than slick, and the food reflects this. FOOD & BEVERAGE
The Modern Australian menu is well-presented and varied, from traditional pork with grilled apple to more contemporary squid ink pasta. Share a plate of coconut prawns or savour Portland grass-fed beef served with black peppercorn and parsley butter, matched perfectly with Athelestane’s award winning wine-list. Also worth visiting is Athelstane House’s foodstore, McKenzie Ebbels, which offers local produced artisan breads, preserves and produce along with ready-made meals to take home.FUNCTIONS
Athelstane features a courtyard and balcony for dining outdoors. The venue can cater for sit-down functions of up to 45 people or more informal cocktail-style gatherings for up to 100.
There is also an all day menu from 11am Monday - Friday. The bar is open from 11am daily.
