Live music, reliable pub feeds and boutique accommodation in the heart of Nelson Bay.
If you've worked up a hunger wandering around the small boutiques, vintage stores and other shops in Nelson Bay's town centre, make tracks to Seabreeze Hotel. Located at the marina end of Stockton Street, the pub makes for a good spot to refuel. The venue has a contemporary look and feel across its various spaces — it boasts a dining area, public bar and a patio. It also has 18 rooms that sleep between 2–4 people, and a bottle shop if you want to grab something to go.
Order a cocktail jug to share — we have our eye on pineapple rosé sangria — or a bottle of wine from the two-page menu (with nothing over $100), before diving into the food menu. If you're just a little peckish, pick some starters to share, like karaage chicken bao, loaded fries and garlic pizzetta. Or, if you're really hungry, order the beef brisket ragu linguine or a wagyu rump with creamy mash. Just be sure to leave room for the Golden Gaytime-inspired dessert with honeycomb parfait, Kingston biscuit crumb, chocolate ganache and roasted peanuts.
