Also known as the Franklin Boutique Hotel, this place is great for enjoying a good range of dishes that are typical of pubs in Australia, along with a few more unique dishes. When you dine there, you can choose to seat indoors or in the open air beer garden near the back of the hotel.
Great for those that want something different from typical pub fare, the two duck legs in their Twice Cooked Duck had crisp skin which contrasted wonderfully with the juicy, flavoursome flesh. Served with the duck was a tangy salad made from frisee and cranberries with a bit of crunch provided by the walnuts and apples. Frisee is a vegetable with curly, pale-green or yellowish leaves. The perfectly cooked duck combined with the refreshing salad looked beautiful and tasted wonderful.

The Greyhound is one of the hot dogs, known as Frank Dogs, which can be ordered from the hotel. The Barossa Valley Weiner used in the dish had a delightful smoky taste with its flavour complemented by the bacon, mustard, pickles and Franks OG Sauce. Served with the hot dog were chips that were fried to golden brown with fluffy interiors.

If you are after something with a bit of an Asian flavour, the Chicken Katsu Burger is a good choice. The piece of fried chicken was cooked just right with some sharpness provided by the wasabi avocado smash. Some Japanese slaw helped to balance the sharp taste of the avocado smash along with a serving of chips done as well as those served with The Greyhound.

The wooden flooring and furniture of the hotel give the place a rustic feel, and the placing of the tables gives a sense of spaciousness and casualness. Street parking is available on the street where the hotel is located.
