Visiting Adelaide for 24hrs.
Dropped in here for a drink. Sat outside on the main street which was nice; wine, people watching and good weather. Bar staff were friendly. There is a pool table and we were there on quiz night. The guy running it pulled us in along with three others. We all formed a table, just strangers having fun it was a good night. Found the hotel had a friendly nice vibe.

I recently had the pleasure of visiting The Austral and I must say, it was an absolute delight! From the warm ambiance to the delectable food, everything about this place exceeded my expectations.

The highlight of my visit was undoubtedly their steak night. The succulent aroma of perfectly cooked steaks filled the air as soon as I walked in. The steak itself was cooked to perfection - juicy, tender, and bursting with flavor. The presentation was impeccable, and each bite was a heavenly experience. The attention to detail in crafting these dishes was truly remarkable.

But it wasn't just the food that impressed me; the overall atmosphere and service were exceptional. The staff was friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable. They made me feel right at home from the moment I walked in, and their passion for delivering an unforgettable experience was evident in everything they did.

One of the standout moments of the evening was when my friend, who has dietary restrictions, brought her own packet of crisps to enjoy. While some places might have been unwelcoming or indifferent, the staff at The Austral didn't skip a beat. They graciously accommodated her, ensuring she had a comfortable and enjoyable time without any hint of judgment. This level of understanding and customer-centric approach truly sets The Austral apart.

From the cozy decor to the top-notch service, The Austral has won me over completely. If you're looking for a place that combines delectable food with a welcoming ambiance and staff that genuinely cares about your experience, look no further. I can't wait to return and savor their other offerings. Kudos to the team at The Austral for creating such a memorable evening!

I was staying at the Pullman hotel. I googled what pubs where close by I found the Austral, we had the barramundi it was nice however it was extremely salty. The music was extremely loud. There is a pool table.

Went in for a quick meal. Staff were super friendly and helpful. Steak was cooked to perfection. Salad was fresh. Chips were good, apart from being overly salty, with a hint of spice, but that's fine. I like a bit of seasoning on my chips.

Great place to come for any occasion, staff are super friendly, chicken snitzel was one of the best I've ever tasted and affordable. Chips were a little too salty and spicy for me, but overall I really enjoyed my experience at the Austral.

Now, if you want Coopers on tap, give this place a go. We're knocking back an Aged Extra Stout, which I'd give 9/10. It certainly gives the English stouts a run for their money. A great atmosphere as well, means we'll be back tomorrow for Trivia ??'???

Ordered a medium rare steak... ... got a well done steak.

Do better.

Cook your squid properly... it shouldn't be rubbery.

Less crumbing on the chicken..more chicken or just less crumbing and actually fry the crumbing properly.

One of the oldest pub in Adelaide and I do like them. The only minus was louder music in the pub. Couldn't have proper chat with my buddies while we were drinking.

Veggie options are awesome, the eggplant parmigiana is the best, but the mushroom burger w fries were a bit too spicy for me.

Loved the way the bass notes surrounded you, but not so loud to be intrusive. Great beer, great atmosphere, dedicated staff

Had a pretty decent meal at The Austral. Beer selection is reasonable and the atmosphere is that simply of a pub. Practical bar service, pay and go drink your beer, easy.

Great pub, very friendly staff, very professional. I was told this place is like an 'institution' and a must visit if in Adelaide city. This place didn't disappoint, that's for sure. I hope I'm lucky enough to get a chance to visit again sometime soon.

Such a quirky pub. I like the games room. The service bar is special... it looks like an old style betting kiosk. Great venue for a stop on a night out.

"Good, no nonsense pub serving good, no nonsense Coopers Ale. A big plus is that the tables are so sticky your pint is unlikely to accidentally slide off."

The above review is a little old now and the Austral has changed management and had a facelift. Tables are no longer sticky for example. The attached photos show the new 'look'. The beer is still the same but something has been lost in atmosphere, although that might just be me struggling (as ever) to adapt to change.
