Small but satisfying menu with some typical pub classics such as schnitzels, fish & chips, steak and burgers. Good sized meals and well priced. The Austral has a nice relaxed atmosphere and is obviously a popular spot for the locals with plenty of buzz especially when the live solo performer is in full swing. My kind of pub!!

we were just passing on our way back from a day at the Zoo there was a busy crowd out front enjoying the afternoon sun, so we decided to join them and had a nice cold beer

A good beer outside Austral is a must do if visiting Adelaide. A mixed crowd, good beer specials and (sometimes) live music.

A very relaxed, grimey bar serving really good beer and doing a deal on burger and a pint. $21. We went in the evening, was noisy enough to make having a conversation hard work. Would say a good place for a night out, maybe not a good place for a date- well, not the first bar. Maybe after a few... More

A busy pub serving a good selection of beer and good meal deal on burger & beer. I had a falsfel burger that was humongous with a lovely bitter to go with it. The place overflowed with customers and guzzling jugs of beer on a weekday. Must be crazy at weekends.

I was a regular punter here in the 80's when The Austral was "punk", it has now become much more clean cut but maintains a bit of a hard edge. Bar staff friendly and drinks were good. Food is your standard pub fare. Fish and chips I recommend. Nice fire in winter. Options to sit outside during the warmer months.... More

The Austral is a pretty damn good pub - good specials, good food. But the dining room is noisier than the Clipsal track on race day and desperately needs something in there to soak up the noise - even half full it sounds like there's 200 people in there. Aside from that, love it.
