Rob Roy Hotel 106 Halifax Street, Adelaide, South Australia, Australia, www.robroyhotel.com.au/index.php

This is a great pub in the CBD of Adelaide. It has a lovely outdoor area, spacious inside area, with an open fire and live music at the weekends. It is child-friendly, with a separate eating area away from the bar. They also have one of the best single malt collections by the glass in Adelaide. It is classy, without the snobbery. We have eaten there a few times and each time the service has been excellent, the servings delicious and copious, and we haven't needed to book. My partner is vegetarian, and they have some nice vegetarian options available. The last time we went it was unplanned for Valentine's day. We had booked elsewhere, and they had forgotten to tell us that there was ONLY the fixed menu, and it was ALL meat! We thought we'd never find anywhere else to eat, but remembered the Rob Roy. Luckily it was only 6.30, so there were some spare places. The waiter helped us create our own all-vegetarian Valentine's Day menu at the same price as the standard one ($70.00 for two, including entree, main course and two glasses of bubbly). We paid half what we'd have paid in the other restaurant, were served quickly, and had a tailor-made menu. A lovely meal to remember.

They are on Facebook, and have a website, so regularly advertise special nights. As a rule, early in the week (Tues-Thurs), they have half-price pizza, burger and schnitzel nights. They also have happy hours for different occasions. The staff are really friendly and helpful. Call or check online first.
