4 of the Best Adelaide Gastro Pubs
Thanks to WN writer Jonathon Phoon for his Best Pub Grub article.

It sent me on a challenge to find a couple of my favourites, which I would call "Best pub grub with a gourmet twist" You may pay a little more, though not necessarily. The benefit is the fare is more than your average with each pub boasting something unique.

For my money, there are four standouts.

1: The Gilbert St Hotel.

Patrons love the Gilbert St Hotel. Regular live music including the only consistent jazz each week on Tuesday nights and live sets Thursday and Sunday.

Thursday night is wings night; you have to book your wings and often your table. Thanks, Luke and the team for your regular excellent service.

The kitchen is full of treats and the menu always has imaginative twists on pub food. Great Steaks and a range of small plates.

2: The Mile End.

The sister pub to Norwood's Colonist Tavern is in a great location on Henley Beach Road. Rank them Number 1 for shared small plates with an ever changing variety. They also have wonderful art deco secrets and plenty of warm fires in the cooler seasons.

3: The Franklin.

The best gourmet dogs award goes to The Franklin on Franklin Street near the bus depot. You can have your Franks Dog in a variety of styles, and they will always consider an ingredient request. Food is fast, and the Beer Garden is colourful and sheltered. It's a great place to stay as well.

4: Publishers Hotel.

With the best smokehouse in town, the Publishers Hotel
perhaps is the most upmarket of the four. They have a great tasting plate special for lunch with two glasses of wine included for $25, perfect fo a quick afternoon delight with a loved one.

All smallgoods are smoked in house and seriously, the prosciutto is the best I have tasted. The smoked oysters are simply fantastic too. Live music Sundays is always top notch and funky jazz happy hour on Fridays from 5 make this a must for the weary worker.
