Large group of us visited the Prairie, looking forward to the experience. Unfortunately we were all a little dissapointed - service was pretentious and bordering on poor 'we don't do high-chairs!', food was ok, atmosphere was good, everything was a little pricey, must say that the waffle desert was delishious. Glad we went so we can cross it off the... More

Wonderful place, I love it. Vintage interior, real outback place in the middle of nowhere, very friendly staff. We had emu burger, tender and delicious kangaroo pastroma, fabulous emu pate, hot camel mettwurst, goat cheese and chilli jam. It was gorgeous.

What a fabulous place. Well restored and maintained buildings. Enthusiastic, positive and helpful staff. Clean spacious dining and gallery areas. Impressed but the range of quality art works available. A few 'souvenir' type items appeared indigenous but made in India. Please scrap those and it's about perfect. Good range of jams relishes etc plus great food from an interesting menu.... More

Great looking country pub from the outside. Inside looks like an art gallery with with rustic tables and a menu that has the Sydney price tag. Nice enough food, but soft drinks at $5.50 is a bit excessive. Prefer to go the extra km's to a real country pub.

I used to work at the nearby Wilpena Pound Resort and frequented the Prairie Hotel. The service is always warm and friendly and the food gives you the chance to sample true Australian food. I tried the Camel sausage, Emu fillet mignon and Kangaroo. Amazing, simple presentation and beautifully prepared. The store is a great novelty too. Thank you for... More
