To start with our reservation that we had made, in person, at the bar about midday, had not been conveyed to the restaurant but we were seated OK. Crowded and noisy but staff were good and we were well looked after. Mains arrived after about 45 mins. and were tasty but the deserts had a lot to be desired. The... More

Located in the inner city leafy green suburbs on the eastern edges of the CBD, The Hackney Hotel is a convenient place for us to meet. Four of us are celebrating a friend's birthday.Two in our party have special dietary requirements. The menu offers a good range of options. There is room for manouvre within some of the other choices... More

We were walking past on the way to a concert, and, on an impulse decided to try a meal at the Hackney. No booking, but we were welcomed and every effort was made to find us a table in a short period of time. We were seated, promptly asked what we would like to drink and given the menu. We... More

This place has improved over the last several years and is very efficiently run. The main dinning area is large but the service and standard is good. The usual "pub" menu but well prepared and served. Try the "house" wine (both red and white) for value

Enjoyed a lunch with friends on Saturday. The surroundings are pleasant. Duck spring rolls & crab & prawn dumplings for starters were delicious. Chicken schnitzel & beef porterhouse schnitzel with Diane sauce was good. Pan fried duck breast was very tasty & refreshing. Had to find waitress to ask for dessert menu 40 mins after main plates were cleared. Winner... More

Haven't been here for a while outside of Christmas but just returned from a fabulous Christmas Day meal. Generous portions while maintaining excellent flavours and quality. Unlimited drinks from a selected wine list (plus soft drinks etc) made this excellent value for money considering they are paying their staff extra today. The service was excellent, all staff being attentive and... More

My husband and I took a friend and her mother for lunch recently. We are all over 60 and had noticed there was a seniors menu. We order from that as it was the same as what was on the main menu, but less expensive and were very happy with what we got. There was plenty of food, delicious and... More

We were visiting Adelaide and staying nearby and stumbled upon the Hackney Pub. The hotel was busy with Xmas parties and a conference. The staff were friendly and accommodating. The menu was suitable for a pub with variety and the usual pub fare. We had the steak and a salad and it was fresh and tasty. The wine list was... More

Didnt start off well when I asked for a pinot gris and the bar staff started pouring me a red wine...not believing me a pinot gris was white, as it was the same label...I was then told that wine in pinot gris style was abailable in the restaurant only and not the bistro area! Even though the restaurant menu was... More

Management response:

Dear travels2010C, I am extremely disappointed in reading your review and sincerely apologise for your terrible dining experience. It's not a usual standard we deliver at The Hackney and it is certainly not one that we are willing to keep. We did change our bar menu slightly on Wednesday, which sounds like it created some confusion in delivery. Restaurant Menu,... More

What the hell have they done to the burgers? Have enjoyed many a good burger at the Hackney, but last night's was not one of them. I had a Swiss burger and ate everything except the actual patties, which were eerily similar in both taste and appearance to cardboard. I'd much rather have one good handmade patty than two mass...

Dear Ouzo10, Thank you for your review on Tripadvisor about your recent dining experience in Burgerland (main bar) Upon speaking with the kitchen they knew exactly what you are referring to and were aware of a pattie had returned uneaten on Friday - We make our patties in house, and upon assessment found that the quality of meat supplied was...
