“Bland with a capital B”
Reviewed January 25, 2014

Atmosphere was crowded and loud. Menu was sparce and unimpressive. Service was slow and abrupt. Food was late (we waited over an hour) and bland. My partner ordered the worst curry he ever ate. Apart from the meat being tough, it tasted like the spice ratio was way off. I ordered the calamari plate. No lemon was served and there was only enough tartar sauce to dip half of my rings into. Oh, and we counted 12 chips on the plate. My soft drink was flat and watery. A big thumbs down. Wasted our time and money.

“Hospitable country pub dining with great atmosphere and daily specials”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

This Is a good country pub, offering hearty food at reasonable prices, with a friendly and hospitable ambience.

You can sit inside or outside.

The menu includes several well priced daily specials.

Well worth a visit when you're in the area!

“Second time and still lovely”
Reviewed October 5, 2013 via mobile

Twice we have lunched at Yankalilla Hotel and twice we have been thrilled by the lovely service and food. Dining is quick, food is hot and potion sizes are just perfect. Last time was freezing so we sat b the cozy fire and this time was a lovely day .... Well done girls .. We will be back.
