I love trying new food and new restaurants. My other passions are Origami and Pokémon

Established in 1857, Inglewood Inn offers dishes that change with the season and are prepared using ingredients locally sourced from South Australian produce. It is known to get quite busy so booking ahead is advised to ensure you get a table when you visit.

The use of buckwheat in their Buckwheat Pancakes gave them a texture that was different from the usual pancakes. They had a bit of a nutty flavour. The golden tahini sauce gave the dish an Indian flair which was balanced by chunks of sweet beet. Topping the pancakes were fritters which were fried to golden brown.

We liked that their Braised Pork Cheeks were very tender with crisp pieces of crackling providing a bit of contrast. The chunks of Paracombe pear were a good partner to the pork. Char onion soubise and caraway jus imparted the dish with its distinctive flavour and ensured that the dish was not too dry.

While listed under the small plates section, the portion size of their Smoked Crispy Eggplant was big enough to be shared. The eggplants had a nice degree of smoky flavour and the crumb coating set off the soft flesh nicely. The eggplants were served on a serving of heirloom tomato jam which had a taste similar to barbeque sauce and was not too sweet.

Among the side dishes that can be ordered to complement your meal, the Char Broccolini still retained a bit of bite and was cooked sufficiently to give it a bit of char. A grapefruit emulsion provided a bit of a tangy taste while still allowing the flavour of the broccolini to shine through.

The décor of the restaurant gave it a rustic feel with the seats on the balcony giving diners a great view of the grounds. Off-street parking is located at the back of the pub to ease the trouble of finding parking space when visiting.
