Ideal for a quick pub style meal before heading to the movies

We have been before for a movie dinner package deal. This time they had live entertainment, a gentlemen singing with a guitar. Whilst he was a good performer the sound was just too loud for us to enjoy our dining experience. We did ask to be seated at a table further away, though the waitress... read more

Mt Barker was a good place for old mid-North friends who now live in the Adelaide Hills and beyond to get together for a meal. We've tried various places, and this was one of the best, though I wouldn't rave about it.

I was a guest at a wedding and enjoyed the ambiance of the function centre and was really looking forward to the food as the menu seemed really nice. For entrée I really enjoyed the prawn cocktail - it was presented very well and tasted fresh. For mains I ordered medium steak with mash - I had two mouthfuls and... More

I've been to the Auchendarroch on several occasions and generally quite like going. Staff are always friendly and efficient, food is generally served promptly. The prices are about what you'd expect. I'm likely to continue going back fairly regularly, particularly for the cinema meal deals and specials nights.

We joined friends for dinner and found the food to be very good and well priced. On the evening that we were there, a small group of musicians entertained as well. Good parking and just off the Free-way at Mount Barker.

We went on Tuesday night...schnitzel night...for $9.90 you get a beautiful chicken breast fillet or a massive beef schnitzel with chips & salad. Includes basic sauces. We went for the surf topping which was 4 king prawns in garlic sauce. Yummy! Other choices include fish & chips, roast, & lots of other tasty offerings. The staff were super friendly, prices...

I booked a table for a retirement dinner which was loveley. The only things that let the meal down was the garden salad on the smorgesboard had been sitting there for over a week it was all wilted and yuck. Also the live music made it impossible for conversation

We arrived without a booking for dinner on a public holiday. No problem - we were made most welcome and ushered to a table for two, seated next to a window with a view over the lovely garden area. The food was to our liking, as was the choice and quality of salads at the salad bar. Table service was... More
