TrueLocal - The Lion Hotel: Pub Grub in Adelaide

The Lion Hotel

North Adelaide

With a multi-award winning restaurant, you can’t go past The Lion Hotel for some of the best pub grub around. A well thought out menu covers a fantastic range of dishes but if all the choices are a bit overwhelming, their chefs can provide you with a personal recommendation. Now that’s service! Read more

The best place for Friday night knock-off drinks! The range of beer and ciders are amazing and the food! Burgers are best at The Lion! Friendly staff and welcoming environment 🙂 – theplaintruth

TrueLocal - Exeter Hotel: Pub Grub in Adelaide

Exeter Hotel


Traditional pub grub made with Australian ingredients is what the Exeter Hotel is all about. The servings are generous, but the prices won’t break the bank, especially since there are more specials than you can poke a stick at! You can’t go wrong with $10 lunches, $12 pulled pork burgers or buy-one-get-one-free meals, can you? Read more

A typical uni student hangout, the Exeter is a nice and relaxed place to go for a good drink and good company. I have made plenty of good friends at the Exeter! The food is very quick but quite nice for a pub meal. Not a place for the overdressed clubber, but more for the indie crowd and those who are happy to enjoy some good rock music and company. Nice place. – Jonnob

TrueLocal - Robin Hood Hotel: Pub Grub in Adelaide

Whether you fancy eating inside or outside, the Robin Hood Hotel will fix even the hungriest of folk with their a la carte menu. With everything from the usual pub favourites to a build-your-own sharing plate, you’re bound to find something to enjoy. Just don’t forget to leave room for one of their scrumptious desserts! Read more

Food delicious. Four of us shared as an entree a large platter made up of dips, pate and sun-dried tomatoes and other fabulous tasting treats. – character1

TrueLocal - The Strathmore Hotel: Pub Grub in Adelaide

The Stonegrill Dining experience at The Strathmore Hotel takes steakhouse dining to the next level. Your meat comes to your table on a 400-degree piece of stone and cooks to juicy perfection in front of your very eyes. It’s not exactly what cavemen did, but it feels close enough! Read more

Excellent meal. I had the prawn and scallop salad, yum. Everyone else tried the stone grill, which was fantastic. – adams0611

TrueLocal - German Arms Hotel: Pub Grub in Adelaide

From traditional German fare to Australian pub food, the German Arms Hotel is where it’s at. Of course, there’s one dish that comes under both categories – the schnitzel. If there’s one thing you have to try here, it’s definitely a good old schnitty though if the Arms’ giant hotdog starts calling your name instead, we understand. Guten Appetit! Read more

Great food! I love the ambiance. – Ramjayne

TrueLocal - The Highway: Pub Grub in Adelaide

The Highway


The Highway has a great menu chock-full of pub favourites. This is a place that has conquered the classics and offers a selection of more modern meals to boot. The only thing you really need to think about is how soon you’re going to head over! Read more

They have a fine dining restaurant if you want something romantic, and they have a beer garden that is nothing short of awesome. –David Sarkies

TrueLocal - Botanic Bar: Pub Grub in Adelaide

Botanic Bar


Famous for its classic decor and amazing cocktails, the Botanic Bar is no ordinary pub. With a Thai restaurant and a South African restaurant in tow, there are exotic flavours aplenty on their menus. If you’re in the mood for something a little different, Botanic Bar is the place to be. Read more

Great bar to hang out with friends in a relaxed way. – Jules Gold

TrueLocal - Avoca Hotel: Pub Grub in Adelaide

Avoca Hotel

Clarence Gardens

Nobody will go hungry after a visit to the Avoca Hotel. Whether you’re after a laidback meal or something a little fancier, there’s a dining area and dish selection that will suit any occasion. What’s more, from Monday to Wednesday you can grab a meal for only $12. You can’t really argue with that! Read more

I loved (really loved) the curry – delicious and very filling with the roti, presented in a really appealing manner – I’d go back just for that. Schnitzel was huge and chips were very more-ish. – seanaussie

TrueLocal - Earl of Leicester Hotel: Pub Grub in Adelaide

Famous for their bigger-than-your-head sized schnitzels, the Earl of Leicester Hotel knows what it does best. That’s not to say they’re a one-trick pony though! There are three different dining areas, and each area has its own menu. Daily specials and chef’s specials start from $12.50, so you can have a feast on a shoestring budget. Read more

Heard the Earl does the best schnittys, so I gave it a shot… not bad, not bad at all!! Humongous though, I was way too full to finish it and to fit in a sticky date! 🙁 Next time!! – xbabydollx

TrueLocal - Hyde Park Tavern: Pub Grub in Adelaide

Hyde Park Tavern

Hyde Park

The Hyde Park serves up what you’d expect to see at a modern Aussie pub, but with the tavern’s own distinct personality. You can pick from the tapas menu if you’re sharing with friends or just feel like having a few lighter options to work through. Otherwise, you can’t go past mains like the Thai squid salad and six-hour cooked lamb shoulder (our personal favourite). Yum! Read more

Whether in the general bar area or the dining room, the food here is exceptional. – Concrete81
