Had lunch at the Ed recently. On arrival we were asked by 4 different staff members if we would like a drink. Having just sat down, we needed time to decide exactly what we wanted to drink. We ended up having all the time in the world, as, after the initial rush, no-one came near us! Eventually had our drink... More

I love the Ed, but the food always falls short. Not this time. The chicken and leek pie was amazing. Always a shame when your ex makes the best chicken pie, but finally an alternative. The corn mash, brilliant. I'll come back for this. Compliments to the chef.

I booked the Private Dining Room for my sisters Bridal Shower last weekend and have nothing but good feedback. The room was beautiful as expected, the food great and even better value for money. The staff certainly made the day even more wonderful, we had two young boys (18-20 year old's i suspect) and they were very helpful, accommodating and... More

We had a family gathering at this hotel on a Sunday for lunch located in the streets of "old Mitcham". There were 10 of us and the general view from the group was that the food was "above average & the service OK". There are "gluten free" options available on the menu. The atmosphere is OK but it can be... More

Visited for lunch during the week.Service at counter prompt and friendly .Great selection of food some a bit pricey bar meals reasonable.Drink on the expensive side but the atmosphere and setting is worth the extra.You can sit in the beer garden or on the verandah.Gets busy and the car park gets full on a nice day.

A favourite with young locals (in their late teens-twenties) on a Tuesday night in the beer garden in Summer ($5 base spirits) this place does not dissapoint for food either. We sat outside on the verandah but our table was warm with the clear blinds. The waiter asked checked in on us multiple times for drinks and was friendly. It... More

The food was very good, although there was one hiccup with a wrong dish that had to be replaced. What was frustrating is the total invisibility of our table of 10. They did not ask whether we wanted anything more to drink after the initial drinks service, did not offer desserts or coffee. The place wasn't full and although they... More

Went there a couple of nights ago while visiting Adelaide with my family. On the outside, we thought The Ed Castle looked a little rundown and seedy. Glad we made the effort to venture inside though. Service is friendly though a little slow on getting the food out, possibly due to the largish crowd there. However, when the food did... More

For a fairly iconic Adelaide hotel, 'The Ed' seems to be slowly slipping it's standards and living off their old reputation. For a couple beers or a wine during summer in the beer garden, great. For a high quality pub meal with excellent service, go somewhere else. The food this time was ok, but just ok. The service, although not... More

Has been years since I visited The Ed as it is known and wasn't disappointed. Food was really good and plentiful. There were eight of us for lunch on a Saturday and it was quite busy, but the service was excellent. Wine list was extensive but thought a bit overpriced for a pub, but that seems to happen everywhere now... More
