Welcome to one of the most beautiful and unique destinations you will hope to find in New Zealand. The Carey's Bay Historic Hotel was originally built as a hotel including a public bar and restaurant.
Standing the test of time the hotel no longer has accommodation but is still a truly Victorian pub with an excellent reputation for fresh seafood meals and friendly old fashioned hospitality. Situated next to the township of Port Chalmers on the banks of the beautiful Otago Harbour. An easy scenic drive, that takes only 15 minutes from the centre of Dunedin City, the hotel is well worth a visit and is for many a cherished destination. "The best pub in New Zealand" or "my favourite pub" is a comment we hear regularly. To our locals, the hotel is fondly known as "The Bay Pub".
On the banks of the Otago Harbour next to an active fishing port, our team can't help but be inspired by the delicious fare being landed within sight of his kitchen.
Utilising locally caught fish such as sole, brill, monk-fish, tarikihi, blue cod, whitebait, and littleneck clams we also buy in oysters, mussels, salmon, and tuatua from other NZ centres.
The cuisine focuses on a blend of fresh seafood and traditional pub fare. Menu favourites are beer battered fish and chips, creamy seafood chowder, salmon & monkfish pie, and two signature Seafood Platters. The kitchen has proudly held an "A" grade hygiene certification for eight years.Find out more about Dining at Carey's Bay
