“The Three Brothers Arms Macclesfield S.A.”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

We had a great day at this establishment. The menu was varied, food and service excellent and the hotel has great ambiance.
My recommendation is to book as people were being turned away from the Sunday lunch because the house was full.

“Lovely surprise in the Hills”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

My husband and I found this restaurant/pub when travelling through Macclesfield so decided to have lunch there. We were not disappointed as the place had an old English pub feel about it and was packed out which gave it a lovely atmosphere. The food was very good and service was excellent which all contributed to a lovely lunch. We will certainly go back there again (sooner rather than later).

“Great country pub!”
Reviewed January 22, 2013 via mobile

Have been here a couple of times recently, and have always been more than happy with the food and service.

Some highlights:
- rib-eye steak with cafe paris butter
- chicken breast with risotto cakes
- garlic bread entree!
- local (Macclesfield) Shiraz
- lovely deck area out back with umbrellas for shade on hotter days

Well worth the trip!

“Very good work in the kitchen”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

I understand that the new owners (who used to have the Hagen Arms in Echunga) have been in charge at the Three Brothers Arms for just on 3 weeks. I had lunch a couple of years back under the old ownership and while it was ok it was nothing to rave about. We certainly noticed a big step up in quality this time around. Our table of 5 was there on a packed Father's Day Sunday, and had a terrific meal. A solo violinist playing some gentle background music was a nice touch, the open fires provided a hint of percussion accompaniment as they crackled away, though the highlight was the quality of the food. We started with a tasting plate of local hills treats (moorish) plus some lovely fresh oysters while for mains the 3 adults had scotch fillet, rib-eye steak and chicken dishes which were all very well prepared and served as requested and with a level of style that was absent before. Our 2 slightly fussy kids were accomodated with as requested variations to pub burger and wood oven pizza. The wine list is a good mix of Adelaide Hills options and other SA choices. Enjoyed the local Scott shiraz sangiovese blend. We found room for dessert which was also nicely done. Minor quibbles are around the waiting staff who while clearly enthusiastic and attentive are still on a learning curve when it comes to the basics of table and food service. All in all a very enjoyable way to spend Father's Day for this lucky Dad!

“Three Brothers Arms is back!!!!”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

After 5 years in the wilderness, The Three Brothers Arms is back to where it once was. Being let run down for so long, it is wonderful to have our local back. It was actually closed for a week so the new owners could clean and make it functional again. Outwardly not much has changed, but on walking in the door the first thing I noticed after the huge smiles of the staff, was that all the fires were roaring, not just a token effort. The kitchen staff are all ex Hagen Arms so we know that is going to be Ok having dined there many times. They didn't disappoint. Their first night was Thursday 9th August and I had a pork fillet. Very nice and well presented. Friday night was Happy Hour and all the locals had flocked there to catch up with their mates. We had our lounge back again. Pizzas were brought out for bar snacks, wow did they look and taste good! Freshly made. Excellent. I'll be going back for sure. It's got that good old happy feel about it already making you want to go back often, just in case you miss some of the fun. I also noticed they have art for sale again, quirky animals made of steel, and so cheap
