I love slow travel, slow food and discovering new adventures and delicious regional food in new locations. I'm on an indulgent quest and I'd love you to follow at www.walkeatshare.wordpress.com

Live music, local wine and tempting bar snacks
Less than 50 minutes from Adelaide, and only 40 minutes from Goolwa, lies the tiny town of Macclesfield. It's a pretty town in a picturesque setting with lots of lovely walking opportunities nearby. Crystal Lake Park offers a short walking trail with sculptures to admire along the way, there is a 1.4km Heritage Walk centred around the Main Street and there are several longer hiking trails further afield.
The main area of the hotel boasts not one but two open fireplaces inside to keep customers warm and toasty when it's too chilly to sit outside in the beer garden. The Goatshead Baaa is right next door, is just as cosy and has its own open fireplace.

The ambience is reminiscent of an English pub with its stone walls, dark timber beams and friendly folk.
Friendly locals at The Three Brothers Arms
There's a friendly resident dog called 'Ranger' too.
The bar (baaa) hosts live music every Sunday afternoon between 2pm and 5pm as well as regular Friday night events. When I visited The Bobkatz were playing cool jazz tunes as they do on the third Sunday of each month.
The menu offers traditional pub fare including its famous 'Three Brothers Arms Steak Burger' which is well priced at $18 as well as everyone's favourite schnitzels with a range of tasty toppings to choose from. Pizzas are available all day and are a popular choice in the Goatshead Baaa along with potato wedges and pizza bread in various flavours. These make perfect bar snacks to accompany a beer or glass of local wine from Longview winery in Macclesfield or others in the Adelaide Hills.
