The Victory Hotel in Sellicks has long been a landmark on the hill.
To survive and thrive in this competitive environment it has had five main things going for it.

The Food
A specials board is written up on butcher's paper with quite a list of seasonal produce. The main menu does change with the season and produces fabulous well rounded meals. All meals come with crusty bread and real butter. Seafood is a highlight.
Currently offering garfish on the specials board. Also try the incredible salt and pepper squid. Pulled fresh from the rocks of Myponga beach. Don't just take my word for it. The Victory Hotel has been awarded Best Hotel Dining at the Advertiser Food Awards 2013.

The wines
Wines by the glass have a list displayed on the bar.
Don't do what I did and think the glass price is the bottle price.
Sharing a bottle of champagne with friends I thought was $15, which turned out to be $115! But the Billycart champagne is highly recommended and my new favourite.

The Cellar
This has a collection of wines to die for. One can dream it is your own little world away. A superb collection and wine list.
Ask to see the cellar when you visit.

The View
The Victory Hotel overlooks a wide uncommercialised coastal vista. On sunset it has such a glorious vantage point.

The Staff
The staff here are always welcoming and ready to have a chat.
It is a down to earth and unfussy place, the way that a good pub should be. But you will go a long way to find one better.
