Easy drive from Adelaide to a hotel that was buzzing with people and activity

Really excellent pizza with interesting ingredients. Despite being a busy cold Saturday night the pleasant waitresses found us a table for six in a warm, if somewhat noisy, section of the bar (rather than sitting outside near a gas heater). There is the excellent pizzeria or more usual 'order at... read more

Stirling Hotel has been beautifully renovated and the bistro is noisy but comfortable. I visited with friends for lunch and ordered the chicken jungle curry. I was terribly disappointed, the curry was bland and very watery. I really should have sent it back but when you are with a number of friends you don't want to wait for another serve... More

The fresh gnocci was fabulous, rivals any Italian restaurant. Fellow diners had the salmon and the lamb and all plates were cleaned. They offer standard pub food but why would you bother when you can have freshly made gnocci or lamb shanks. Will definitely be back - great job Stirling.

We were visiting from interstate and were taken to this hotel for a Friday night meal. I had a pizza special with caramelized pear and honeyed walnuts (something like that!) and it was absolutely delicious. A mixture of sweet and savoury and seasoned perfectly. Other people were similarly happy with their choices. Thoroughly recommended.

I hadn't been here since the hotel's transformation. My mate and I ate in The Bistro, He had the duck burger, which he described as rich but tasty, and I had no complaints with my pulled pork burger that got extra life from the sauce and relish. This is a good place to unwind over a couple of beers and... More

Fantastic place to go for a quiet drink or a big group gathering. The cocktails are amazing and the staff are all really friendly and polite.

Had lunch and the food and wine selection were excellent. We had salt & pepper squid which was cooked to perfection. Lovely outdoor area.

Review of The Grill, which is the fine dining area. Had a very early meal. When we arrived the restaurant was empty, and the service perfect; attentive, relaxed but not intrusive. After that there appeared to be an inverse relationship between service speed and number of customers, so that by 7.30 we were struggling to catch a waiter's eye to... More

Had a lovely steak on a bed of sweet potato mash with green beans, and squash, cooked perfectly! Husband had roast of the day, lamb cooked well. Friendly service, could use a bit more shade on the deck, market umbrellas were few and far between forcing people to sit inside when it was a lovely day! Also heaps of bees?... More
