#1 of 4 in Mintaro
Travellers' Choice
Magpie and Stump is located in Mintaro, a small charming country town close to the renowned Clare Valley wine region and the popular towns of Burra and Auburn. The pub is an hour and a half drive from Adelaide and dates back to 1851, rich in character and charm, it is open seven days. If you love schnitzel, fish and chips or a steak cooked perfectly, Magpie and Stump is a must destination. Be sure to try their signature ‘Stump Burger’ or for the more sophisticated diner dishes like scallops in a dill and lemon and hollandaise sauce are a must. Live entertainment often coincides with long weekends and holidays so follow us on Facebook or Instagram for all the latest up to date information on up and coming events. With sprawling lawns it’s ideal for a family break, let the kids have a play on the lawns while you sit and enjoy the country ambience on the verandah. Winter is idyllic with roaring open fires you can sit back and relax with a glass of local wine and a delicious cheese board

I stayed here 1 night on the recommendation of a friend. Small town pub with nice accommodation, clean shared amenities and toast, cereal etc in the room. Had the Stump Burger for dinner and honestly the best burger I've ever had. Go there. XL

Staying in Leasingham S A. Decided to eat out at the Magpie and Stump. Nice appearance. Meal arrived and the only part of the mixed grill that was hot were the chips, the rest was tepid at best. Four of us ate there only one meal was acceptable. We were the only people eating there.

Great little local pub with a good food selection. Drop in for a yarn with the locals and owners - mid week is a good time. Good is tasty and fresh. Great service and good selection of local spirits and wine. Good place for a debrief at the end of the day.

The Magpie and Stump is a true Australian Pub experience. This historic hotel from 1851 in the beautiful Clare Valley has a great bar, beer garden and restaurant specialising in traditional pub food. The wine list features local Clare Valley wines, which you can enjoy by the glass. Live Saturday Jazz is also on the menu. A great place to spend an afternoon, meet some locals and emerce yourself in a true country pub experience which is hard to find. Staff were really helpful, food was great.

Great little country pub, excellent food and a good range of beers and wines. I ha the schnitzel and couldn’t eat it all. Outstanding value for money. Open fires in bars and dining room was an added bonus. Service was very good. Highly recommend
