Six of us enjoyed Sunday lunch at Proudfoots Boathouse. The venue is delightful, the service very good and the food is delicious. I am so pleased that it has been re-opened as we always call in when visiting Warrnambool.

We were passing through and found this place by accident. We sat outside and looked at the lovely views. We only had a couple of hot chocolates but service was good and prices ok.

I am sorry but I'm not 100% sure, the access I used was down some stairs, I would contact them directly there could be other access points and if it is acceptable would be a fantastic place to take your Mother.
