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

The food was delicious good size servings . Service and hospitality was fantastic . Noticed a board that mentioned jazz on Saturday afternoons .

Needed accomodation at short notice and Clare tourist info said Magpie & Stump had a few rooms and may be able to help. We had been there previously for lunch 6 months prior and I thought the atmosphere was really good, so decided to book for the weekend. even though our room was small it had everything, and decor was new and fresh! double bed felt like it had a woollen underlay and was very comfy. Bar fridge, elec jug, toaster, plunger coffee etc - everything worked! we had dinner there both nights, schnitzel first night and grilled fish and osso bucco the second which neither of us could fault, Numerous times we were told Paul & Amanda have done an amazing job with the pub and brought it back from the brink of extinction. it had a real friendly and homely atmosphere that we love. We even met the pub cat (PC) who strolled in and out of our room at random! we had a shared bathroom but this wasnt a problem and it was renovated beautifully! we loved our stay and will definitely be back!

We stayed, with friends, overnight in Mintaro at the Magpie and Stump. The place was recommended by friends. The owners and staff went above and beyond looking after their customers, they are particularly friendly and charming. We stayed for the evening meal which had a wide choice, was excellent value and a great meal. Can recommend their house wines which, in our case were from grapes grown in the owners own vineyard. They have a large garden area and we enjoyed great entertainment, throughout the afternoon and evening. Not a lot of accommodation so book early to get in there. Would thoroughly recommend.

We stayed in Mintaro and had a short walk to this amazing pub. The extremely friendly owners and staff went above and beyond looking after their customers. They have all day dining and our meals were excellent. They have a lovely big garden area and there was great entertainment throughout the afternoon and early evening. They also have accommodation available, which the owner showed us and the three rooms available have been upgraded to a high standard, no old pub rooms here. The bathrooms were high spec too. Two rooms share one bathroom and the other room has an ensuite. Great for a small group staying together. Can highly recommend.
