The Portsea Hotel's a pub that's as famous as the bayside town itself. Time Out's tip here is to arrive early and get a table outside – the food and view certainly won’t disappoint.
Any trip to Mornington should include a detour to the Portsea, even for a pot, especially on a sunny weekend afternoon. However, the pub is popular and that means don't expect average Melbourne prices, but meals that almost push the price limit for what you should pay in a pub. And expect to queue up because this watering hole fills up fast at lunchtime on weekends.
