The Pretoria has no airs and graces - it is a great Aussie pub with great food. The ambience is very good and the dining area is quite large and not crowded with chairs and tables. We sat towards the outside but under the roof as the weather was a bit inclement. The view to the River Murray was wonderful.... More

Situated on the beautiful and mighty Murray. Outside overlooked the Murray but once again the Smokers had the best location. We sat outside as there were not many people at the restaurant but would not have done this if there were smokers. Really did spoil the ambience. We had to move very full ash trays to other tables. The staff... More

Came for a drink with some friends and ended up staying for dinner. Has an outdoor seating area overlooking the mighty Murray River which would be great in warmer weather. We ended up inside as it was starting to get cold. The dining area has large windows with views of the Murray again and is light, airy and big. Typical... More

We were in Mannum for 2 nights over a long weekend. We came for dinner here on both nights. The hotel backs onto the river and has a big back deck where you can have a few drinks or a meal and enjoy the view. There is a nice big grassed area between the restaurant and the river, which made... More

It's great to see history preserved and the Pretoria Hotel certainly has an abundance of that. With so many places to eat in Mannum, we didn't get an opportunity to have a meal here but enjoyed the look and feel of the place. There are some very interesting photos in the Mannum museum and some of the other shops in... More

Food was good but need to cater for older people who cannot eat so much. Our plates all had left-over food that we were unable to eat. Sadly though upon asking for a soy coffee we were told - 'Soy goes off - we don't use it. We just end up throwing it away' Fact: Soy comes in 1 litre,... More

My friends and I decided to go to Mannum for my 30th birthday weekend. It is a beautiful little town, being so close to Adelaide we have been many times. I have been to The Pretoria Hotel previous occasions, not for dinner, but for drinks. I always found the staff to be quiet friendly & accommodating. We went there for... More

Arrived at 1pm on a Sunday with out a booking. The staff went out of their way to fit another 4 in for lunch without any fuss. Very professional. Great menu and realistic priced wines. The service and quality of food was excellent but they could not compete with the views of the Murray from anywhere in the Restaurant. Recommended... More

We have visited the pretoria hotel a number of times in the last few months and found it to be one of our favourite spots. The food is always freah and very tasty and combined with the view, i highly recommend anyone looking to have a great feed and views of the river to visit.
