At the base of the Adelaide Hills you find a quaint little pub called the Fox and Firkin. This delightful bar has an excellent selection of beers and spirits, fine grub and a bit of old world charm.



The building, a colonial stone flour mill built in 1853, is found at the base of Anstey Hill. Upon stepping through the doors you feel like you have been transported to a small British pub. The atmosphere is intimate, nothing like the huge, commercial style, pokie laden venues that have thoroughly infiltrated Adelaide in recent years.

There is a restaurant upstairs with an excellent selection of meals, the Firkin Curry is highly recommended. However, if you are out for a beer or two I'd suggest a Beef and Guinness pie from the bar. If you are a real beer expert you won't be disappointed with the range on tap; Bulmer's, Guinness, Old Speckled Hen, Kilkenney and Stella as well as many more.

On Saturday nights there is often live music playing, and the bar is a little busier. If you are after a night out with friends with good food, a great selection at the bar and the ability to hold a conversation then try the Fox and Firkin.

Have to say, it is hard to find a better pub in Adelaide's North-East. We've been frequenting the F&F for more years than we care to admit, and it's always been a great, friendly place to visit. And their hamburgers are the best.
