Last updated 20 Mar, 2024

Adelaide is brimming with pubs where you’re so close to the sporting action you can almost hear the roars from the Oval! We’ve covered where to head before, during or after the game for the best deals around town.

North Adelaide

Queen's Head Hotel

117 Kermode Street, North Adelaide

You know a pub is doing something well when it’s the oldest licensed venue in an original building in the State. Established in 1838, the Queen's Head has maintained its cosy, welcoming vibe with a few sleek updates over the years. This pub is renowned for their wood oven pizza and monthly beer specials. If you’re lucky, you’ll score an elusive seat in front of the fireplace.

The Archer Hotel

60 O'Connell Street, North Adelaide

Established in 1882, the iconic heritage pub has lived a colourful life including stints as a library, bank and radio station. It reopened its doors recently with a few sleek updates. There are 17 beers on tap for your drinking pleasure and plenty of space for you to pop your feet up. The Archer is the place to be if you’re hungry after all your cheering – every month they offer a 'mega deal' which generally features a large amount of food and drinks to go with it.

The Kentish Hotel

23 Stanley Street, North Adelaide

The Kentish Hotel, located at the eastern end of Stanley Street, is a favourite amongst locals and their furry friends. The gastropub’s menu is inspired from all across the globe while also providing a great share menu featuring dumplings, arancini, satay skewers and more.

The Cumby

205 Waymouth Street, Adelaide

Formerly known as the Cumberland Arms, this iconic West End pub has changed more than its name over the last few years.

With regular specials, this could be just the place to settle in for the game.
