My husband and I stayed at Melrose last Friday night on our way to Wilpena Pound. We visited the top pub "the Northern Star" for a late afternoon drink. It is very impressive to look at and worth a visit. We went to the bottom pub "Mount Remarkable" for dinner as we were staying in the cabins there. Cabins cheap, very very basic but clean. The pub itself is a little tired and very "pub by" which I like. However, I order a chicken schnitzel for tea and it is the best chicken schnitzel I have ever had and I have had a few. It was tasty juicy and the home made crumb was sensational. A rememberer!!! The vege bar allowed a good choice of vegies and they too were very tasty. We were treated to country hospitality and had a wonderful night chatting to locals and other tourists.
