On golden Ponds

WAURN Ponds Hotel has been a southern institution in Geelong for decades and a sweeping renovation has given it a whole new life.
But the Ponds’ friendly, relaxed atmosphere, quality meals and service along with excellent value remain hallmarks.
The fantastic all-day menu with tummy-filling goodies starts at just $14, while the bistro is a great spot for a quick and hearty lunch.
Along with a grand range of pub main meals, plenty of entrees, desserts and sides are available, with a children’s menu and a new play area, so it’s a great spot for families.
And a hearty breakfast menu is available from 9am to 11.30am on weekends.
The new bistro’s classic menu offers a great range of casual and seasonal dishes for both lunch and dinner, including steaks, seafood, pastas, risottos and stir fries.
The bistro is the perfect place to wind down, relax and catch up with friends, family and colleagues while the children play.
Special occasions catering can be arranged and booking are now available for Mother’s Day.
The hotel’s sports bar offers pool tables, amusements and a TAB for a bit of fun, along with an outdoor beer garden and alfresco dining, all supported by plenty of parking.
