Nice place in the middle of the Coonawarra vines. Turned up 30 minutes early as forgot to adjust watches for the South Australia time zone difference! Mucho sniggering... Great pizza....period

this is a great restaurant for casual dining.There is an extensive pizza menu and also a small selection of meat/fish dishes which are selected on a daily basis. Every dish is delicious and ingredients are well balanced. The wine list is a celebration of the Coonawarra region . We had a great time !

Went for dinner at fodders last night after a very long drive from Sydney, and what a treat it was. We enjoyed three amazing courses, even though we were tired and had planned to just pop in for a quick pizza. It was so delicious and we were so comfortable there that we just couldn't stop eating! Service was extremely... More

What a lovely experience at Fodder. The 'Laab' thai salad (entree) was perfect for a light lunch. Fabulous flavours and perfectly accompanied by a glass of great cabernet. The restaurant offers a great atmosphere, welcoming and friendly.

On recommendation from the lovely folk at Balnaves, our party of 12 decided to stop here for lunch today. We were rewarded with exceptionally rude staff providing the wrong, horribly overpriced food (the $18 laab would feed a toddler at best). When we went to pay, they blamed us for not booking ahead. In other words, this is clearly not... More

We had a quick lunch stop between wine tastings so just a short note. An asparagus and chervil soup from product of their own garden was delicate and reviving on a surprisingly cold October day. The wood fired pizzas had the desired doughy crust and the ingredients on Option 7 including pecorino and pork sausage were sensible and worked really... More

Had a really lovely experience @ Fodder yesterday. Service was excellent, prompt and attentive. We chose pizza (all home made, wood fired pizza oven on premises) and could tell that the ingredients used were fresh by the taste. The wine list is extensive, the by-the-glass list not too bad either. We also had the soup which was nice, although just... More

We only book an hour ahead on a busy long weekend , but when we arrive we get a spacious table in sun filled enclosure to the side of the restaurant . A lovely place to be for Sunday lunch. With the parents with me, the debate about what to eat is carefully discussed. We all love our food and... More

Best pizzas, excellent venue but surprised to be "told off' for not booking as we arrived! Yikes - there were 9 of us for food and wine - isn't that what restaurants want - customers???

stuart5660, Owner at fodder, responded to this review

A group of 9 people take up a quarter of my restaurant and we were quite heavily booked for that day, fortunately they came in quite early and I was able to make adjustments to the seating arrangements. It was while I was rearranging the restaurant that I gently mentioned that we appreciate bookings for larger groups. More
