This is a family style hotel bistro, so don't expect a romantic atmosphere. However, if it's good value food you're looking for then this is your place. We had lunch here today, it was full of families enjoying a good get together and lovely food. The staff were helpful and friendly, and hard working. And the food was incredible... the... More

We travelled from Victor Harbor for something different and found Magnums Bistro all we had hoped. The food was good quality, the service outstanding and the prices were competitive. We will return again soon.

We went for a few drinks before we headed off to a winery, and was very pleasantly surprised with the service, the food, and the company of the bar staff was great! The next morning we went back for breakfast. One of the best breakfasts we have had in a long time. Well done Magnums, we will be back.

A special night out for dinner midweek at McLaren Hotel we really only expected an average pub meal, but we were pleasantly surprised that the meals were restaurant standard. Our only complaint was the $10 minimum spend on visa card for drinks, which meant that we had to buy more wine than we wanted to. We'll know next time. Overall... More

Met a group of friends at this pub bistro for lunch. Lots of options on the menu, great value prices and a good salad and hot vegetable bar to complement meals if required. The portions were generous, the food good pub tucker and a buzzing atmosphere.

This is one of the best breakfasts in Adelaide. Extensive menu and great value with wholesome food cooked to perfection. The atmosphere is very pleasant with lovely views of gardens and there is an outdoor eating area too. Children are welcomed. We found the staff to be very pleasant and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. This place is... More

We recently visited this venue while touring the area south of Adelaide. Magnums Bar and Bistro at the Hotel McLaren offers good solid old fashioned pub food. The portions are generous, the menu extensive and the prices very reasonable. They also offer a good salad and vegetable bar to compliment the meal. The staff are very friendly and accommodating.
