A busy pub serving a good selection of beer and good meal deal on burger & beer. I had a falsfel burger that was humongous with a lovely bitter to go with it. The place overflowed with customers and guzzling jugs of beer on a weekday. Must be crazy at weekends.

I was a regular punter here in the 80's when The Austral was "punk", it has now become much more clean cut but maintains a bit of a hard edge. Bar staff friendly and drinks were good. Food is your standard pub fare. Fish and chips I recommend. Nice fire in winter. Options to sit outside during the warmer months.... More

The Austral is a pretty damn good pub - good specials, good food. But the dining room is noisier than the Clipsal track on race day and desperately needs something in there to soak up the noise - even half full it sounds like there's 200 people in there. Aside from that, love it.

Popped in for a quick drink about 1800 hrs but it was so crowded with Bohemians that we thought twice about having food as well. A very lively atmosphere matching the Exeter across the road. When one spots the classic colonial frontage from a distance you can almost predict the crowds

We went twice, once to sit in a window seat watching the world go by with a huge plate of nachos and cold beer, the second occasion was for a meal and a beer before going to the Adelaide Fringe in the Garden of Unearthly Delights. Good food, well presented.

A good selection to choose from in both food, wine and beer. The service was high quality as was the food. I would certainly return and probably had my best meal in Adelaide during a short trip.

Had dinner. Got what we expected. I had the vegan burger. The bread was pretty though and I couldn't cut it. It was too chewy for me. I ended up not eating it. The patty was nice though and the chips were yum. Nice spot for having a beer and watch the street/people :).
