Our experience at The Crown and Sceptre hotel was fabulous with its relaxed, casual atmosphere, friendly attentive staff and delicious food. We started with entrees of Pumpkin & Fetta Aracini Balls and Squid with Asian salad which were both delicious. A glass of very nice Barossa red wine went nicely with our steaks for main course. My husband chose a tasty tender rump and I chose a melt-in-the-mouth sirloin, both cooked to perfection and served with the ‘signature sauce’. Sides were chat potatoes or chips and steamed greens in a garlic sauce. The servings of both food and wine were very generous. We would highly recommend this place and will certainly return whenever we feel like a great steak.

The dining room at the Crown and Septre has a very pleasant ambience with an open fire, classic furniture and convivial atmosphere. The service was attentive and professional. The menu had some pub favourites but also some more sophisticated dishes. We both really enjoyed our meals which were superbly presented and combined with some quality South Australian Reds. We didn't realise we had such an appealing pub / restaurant so close. Definitely be back very soon!

Food was good. Great space and cozy atmosphere. Bar area could be a little clearer on what they have to offer. Apart from the obvious beers on tap and the front row of spirits, you don't really know what they have stocked.

But service was considerate and amiable and we had a great night.

REVIEW Crown & Sceptre, Adelaide
There’s lots of dark wood & charming little rooms in this pub and the walls are covered in local art which gives it a really cosy atmosphere.
I had the Paroo Kangaroo which was presented as a simple colourful rustic dish on the plate. The roo was rich, hearty & tender with five succulent pieces of meat topping the broccolini.
I am not usually a fan of Polenta, but this serving had a delicious crust and was perfect for soaking up the last of the jammy jus. I thoroughly enjoyed the dish, which I finished by snacking on the sweet potato crisps that were scattered across the meal. The waiter was friendly and helpful and the atmosphere was warm and inviting despite there being quite a crowd on the night we were there.
My friend had the Moroccan Chicken. Although the couscous was a little dry, the chicken tenderloins were perfectly cooked and the spices gave it extra flavour.
We both finished our meal with the sticky date pudding, warm & sticky as it should be on a cold winter’s night!

Beautiful cosy restaurant, lovely and attentive staff, and delicious food. Try the goat curry - you won't regret it!
