A nice setting very well decorated, a very pleasing place to sit and have dinner. Well worth a visit if you are travelling in South Australia.

Established in 1855, the Bridgewater Inn is one of South Australia's most historic pubs. With cosy open fires blazing in winter and the shady vine covered pergola by the creek in summer, the Bridgewater Inn is a venue for all seasons. On our upper level we offer the more traditional style pub dining experience with two open fireplaces, large pool room, lounge dining, decked verandah, gaming room, live music every Sunday. Our extensive a la carte menu is available upstairs however we do not provide table service. Whereas on our lower floor we house our cellar restaurant where we provide full table service, a la carte menu with a local wine list and a large two tier beer garden situated alongside the beautiful Cox's Creek. All of our outdoor areas are dog friendly. We are located very close to the Heysen Trail (Bridgewater - Mount George) & our staff can point you in the right direction if you so desire! Our Cellar restaurant is open Wednesday - Friday for lunch and dinner (times as listed), Saturday & Sunday for all day dining. The Bridgewater Inn is open Mon-Wed 09:00-23:00 Thurs-Sat 09:00-02:00 Sun 08:30-22:00
