We were running a bit late and unfortunately for all the staff involved we arrived 10 minutes before the end of lunch.
As a result of our late arrival we were rushed into placing our order, and tried to be accommodating to the staff serving us.
Food was nothing special, in all honesty we could have found the food served at any mediocre pub establishment.
Seems the care of this industry is slowly eroding around us, this is the situation here.
We sat below cobwebs in the dining room, and sat at a window seat, looked like the Windows hadn't been cleaned for a while.
There was also a certain noise that interrupted the dining room, not sure if it was the toilet refilling, but it came from that area, wasn't pleasant.

The real nail in the coffin here was when the other four people at another table ordered coffee. The staff were more than happy to make them, but then made the customers carry them back to the table. They looked rather uncomfortable doing so, as most people would. This really got under ones skin as the staff had plenty of time and one truly believes that the staff hasn't been told by the management here they are in the service industry.

One truly hopes your visit is more enjoyable than ours was.

The Seahorse Inn itself has two restaurants, as guest of the hotel we decided to have dinner in the Bettenas restaurant as we wanted to treat ourselves. The restaurant is tastefully decorated, warm & welcoming. Our waitress was attentive and friendly. We had the seafood platter and highly recommend it, just delightful.

We were staying at the Seahorse Inn and opted for the Bettenas restaurant as opposed to the brasserie as it was a special occasion. We shared the Seafood platter for 2 and it is an absolute must if you are dining at the Seahorse Inn. We were absolutely blown away, everything was so fresh and flavorful, the oysters are up there with the best we have ever had, the crayfish mornay delicious. Wine list had a good variety, a little expensive for the country but they did have cheaper option. Ashlee our waitress was fantastic and happy to help with all of our needs.

The Seahorse Inn was host to 2018 Bega Valley Rally & its presentation. It was a very well organized weekend/event from everyone involved. Seahorse Inn staff were extremely accommodating, food fantastic & nothing was too much trouble. You all did an amazing job looking after the 250+ of us. We look forward to next year.

Lovely building, good staff, however enormous servings of food which lacks flair. Quieter than the bistro however dishes were a little disappointing.
