One of Victoria's oldest inns, this beautifully restored 1841 Georgian-style building overlooks Port Fairy's working wharf from King George Square. Among the locally sourced seasonal dishes you might find on the menu ($$$) are country pork terrine and Quinlan's porterhouse with mushrooms and marrow butter. The restaurant is closed Tuesday and Wednesday and serves dinner only. Accommodation is a mix of ground-floor suites with snug sitting rooms and iPod docking stations and storybook attic bedrooms. The roaring fireplaces are perfect for whiling away the hours with a good book. Breakfast is served in the light-filled conservatory with views of the charming cottage garden.
