Fortunately, for you, we have managed to find some of the best pubs in Adelaide Hills. In our opinion, these are the pubs you should visit at all costs.
While you might assume that this isn’t a pub but instead a run-of-the-mill hotel, it is in fact a newly renovated space with the finest drops by world-leading labels from various wine regions, if you are a wine connoisseur, then this is one of the places you should absolutely visit in Adelaide Hills. Sure it is not a regular pub, yet at Uraidla Hotel, you’ll find some of the best pancetta ale pie, and rabbit. That’s in addition to chicken schnitty that you can enjoy with a few sips of fine wine.
The Stirling Hotel
We’d say that this is the slickest looking pub on the inside in South Australia. The large, dimly lit alfresco dining area, is one of the prettiest places you’re going to see selling wine in Adelaide Hills. However, don’t let the looks fool you, this here is a multi-award-winning hotel with expertly curated drinks along with gourmet pizza, seasonal bistro, a separate grill menu, patisserie, and gin bar. Toast to everything in life overlooking the leafy street, or you can choose a location near the old-school fireplace.
Lost in a Forest – wine lounge / pizza bar
Out of the best pubs in Adelaide Hills, we’d have to say that this is perhaps the most different in terms of what’s served. Lost in a Forest serves wine along with a selection of pizzas. The place itself used to be the Adelaide Hills church, which is why it has that stained glass, intricate mural and rustic feel to it. Nowadays, it is one of the best places to enjoy a few drinks and pizza with a group of friends. The wood oven pizzas come coupled with a host of unconventional toppings with a wine list of famous local and international gems.
Applewood Distillery – Distillery
Now this place is a labyrinth on the sale of Charlie’s Chocolate Factory. Its distilling rooms are huge, and so is their selection of spirits and wines. The super-stylish bar hides the underbelly of this wine-producing beast, but which makes it an excellent place for an afternoon getaway.
