Prancing Pony along Rundle Street is a good place to enjoy a decent selection of pub-style food with various beers from the brewery of the same name. Aside from their main menu, specials are available for those that desire a bit of variety.

The pulled beef brisket in the Pulled Beef Taco was juicy, with the black ale imparting the beef with a distinctive flavour. Freshness was provided by pico de gallo salsa, a Mexican salsa that typically consists of tomato, onion, chilli peppers, coriander and lime juice. It is advisable to eat the taco slowly as the juices from the beef can make it a bit messy.

Their Flammekueche range refers to a speciality from Alsace in France, consisting of a flatbread topped with either savoury or sweet toppings. We found the texture of the flatbread to be similar to a thin crust pizza and it was baked sufficiently to give it a toasted flavour. There was enough pepperoni in the Pepperoni Flammekueche we chose for a delectable smoky taste, which was complemented nicely by the bacon. The tomato sugo sauce tied everything together and ensured the dish was not too dry.

Offered as a special during our visit, their Chicken Wings were cooked just right, with the crisp coating contrasting well with the flesh. For the sauce that the wings were tossed in, we were able to order a half-and-half mix of black ale barbeque sauce and honey soy sauce. The honey soy sauce had a delicious sweet-savoury flavour and the black ale barbeque sauce had a distinctive flavour with the black ale taste in the background.

For vegetarians, the Roast Cauliflower Taco is a good choice. The chunks of cauliflower still retained a bit of bite and the spices they were seasoned with gave them a bit of a smoky flavour. Topping the cauliflower was the same pico de gallo salsa used in the Pulled Beef Taco to provide a hint of freshness to the dish.

Able to be enjoyed like a dessert, the slices of apple in the Indulge Flammekueche were sliced quite thinly while still retaining a bit of bite and the cinnamon sugar dust partnered nicely with it. The sweet cream that served as the base of the dish did not taste too creamy. The flavour was similar to condensed milk.

The d├ęcor of the restaurant gave it a rustic feel. If they are lucky, diners may have the opportunity to listen to live music while enjoying their meal.
