A little escape from Adelaide CBD
Near the nexus of Rundle Mall and Hindley Street, there's a little alleyway with a little door. It's the entrance to a space that offers welcome relief for the Adelaide visitor.
Hindley Street isn't always the ideal point from which to enter small alleyways. In the daytime, the alley which leads to the Little Pub doesn't indicate 'oasis', despite the enthusiastic advertising for the pancake place at the end of the alley. A small sign points the way to the Little Pub off Hindley. It intrigued me.
Curiosity paid off. Through the wooden door I found a nice little pub, not stylish or modern but also not gloomy. Wooden-panelled, leather-couched, and traditionally pub-like.
Any pub has to be judged on its beer, and the Little Pub came through. As well as offering the usual, they had on tap and a range of ciders. Their weekly special offered an Imperial pint for $9, an absolute bargain for the city.
