Description: This iconic community club is located in the heart of the Barossa Valley in Tanunda. Established on the existing site in 1891,it welcomes visitors every day for lunch and dinner. Winner of '2012 Regional Club of The Year', it offers all your pub-style favourites together with daily Chef specials offering restaurant-quality meals using fresh local ingredients. Dine in the regionally themed Dining Room that features a panoramic wall-sized Barossa landscape photograph, or eat in the Bar or on the outdoor Terrace. The extensive menu features South Australian seafood and the best premium steaks north of Adelaide. Also popular for schnitzels, burgers and kid-friendly meals with a childrens' play room. Fantastic local wine list (as you would expect in the Barossa) including many iconic reds available by the glass. This venue has been totally renovated and refurbished in recent years but it retains a wonderful ambience with friendly staff. As a community venue the atmosphere is casual and meals are ordered at the bar, so sit back, relax, and enjoy country hospitality. Bookings recommended, so suggest you phone ahead where possible to avoid disappointment.

“Warm country pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013 via mobile

We arrived for a late lunch & were made to feel very welcome. We chose to eat in the front bar rather than the dining room because we preferred the ambience of the front bar with the roaring fire. The serves were huge & good pub fare. If we were looking for a pub lunch in Tanunda, we would eat there again. The bar staff were really friendly. There is a great selection of wine here & the food is good.

Many thanks, yes we are still community owned and generate operating profits back into the community through sponsorship and donations, while also returning benefits to our members. Locals have been meeting and eating at the club since 1891, so we're very glad you found us and enjoyed our hospitality. Please come again!

Very average pub meals, asked for my steak well done-came out rare. Nice and tidy place. Nice and warm on a cold winters night.

“Typical of a pub/club”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

We went on a busy Saturday night...and all I remember was screaming kids most the night. After waiting 40 mins for our meals, 2 out of four meals were excellent, one was barely warm and the other one undercooked. Drinks were expensive..$23 for 2 beers & 2 soft drinks considering it was a pub.. Can I recommend if you don't have children with you ask to be sat away from the kids play area. I wouldn't return..

“Average Pub/Club”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

The food was OK - not great, not bad but just OK. Queue up to order but the staff deliver you meal to your table. Other than that there is no table service. Food choices seem to be a bit limited at night in town. Next time I will try one of the wineries if they are open.
