Description: Situated on the shores of Bancroft Bay in the heart of Gippsland Lakes, Australia's largest inland waterway, the village of Metung has been a premier resort area for nearly 100 years. Metung Hotel is located on 4644 sq mt land on the magnificent waters of Bancroft Bay in the Gippsland Lakes. Lunch served 12-2 and dinner 6-8 daily (8.30 holiday season). Bar opens at 11am. We only close Christmas Day. Come and visit us for a drink, something to eat and or watch the Pelicans being fed everyday at 12.00 noon sharp. If its a nice day, why not have a drink on the boardwalk, right on the water. Maybe bring your boat and tie up. If you don't have a boat you can hire one locally.

Always visit this pub when staying at the Lakes. Good honest food for a reasonable price. We both had the local King George Whiting with chips and salad. Whiting was cooked perfectly, as were the chips. Unfortunately, like a lot of places, the bowls of salad tasted as if they'd been stored in refrigeration with uncooked seafood, thus imparting that unmistakable taste. That aside the fish and chips were a huge meal on their own.
The view from this pub is beautiful and the local "pet" pelican very entertaining. Well worth a visit.

Pretty ordinary. Lost our order. When we queried staff got antsy with us. When the food arrived the flathead tails were mostly batter. One of them was all batter. Not impressed.

We had a really great lunch out on the deck, food was really good, priced well and plentiful. Really friendly staff and just a great place in an amazing waterfront location.

Fitting us in with a last minute booking was not a hassle. Locals were friendly and it seemed to be a pub that everyone can go to with no fuss. The Parma was delicious and my husband had the seafood platter that he says was the best he has ever had! Now that's a win! The service was great and the atmosphere lovely. It can be as inexpensive or as expensive as you want due to the great menu variety. Wish this was my local!
