Since 1872 the Kings Head Hotel has been a South Australian icon. Now simply known as “The Kings” it is a unique South Australian only produce bar and restaurant right in the heart of Adelaide’s CBD.

The Kings is truly a South Australian only venue where everything you eat and drink comes from right here in SA. The Kings Bar is classic saloon with 8 local beer taps and a focused and diverse SA only wine list, the Den is our 60 seat a la carte restaurant, a great street front dining and drinking space on King William Street to do some serious people watching and the Ballroom, a versatile function space comfortably holding up to 170 persons and featuring its own private courtyard.

DJs entertain you Wednesday, Friday and Saturday evenings in the Kings Bar playing the most eclectic mix of tunes you won’t hear anywhere else in the city. Our Mission at the Kings is “To deliver brilliant South Australian beer, wine, food and cocktails, exciting ever changing music and friendly service from our great staff serving up hospitality like only South Aussies can”

The Kings Functions Better. Catering for groups of 10 to 170pax in private and ‘semi-private’ spaces let us work with you and your budget to deliver the experience you want for your guests.”

The Kings Q & A

Q. So why don’t you sell West End Draught?

A. Although made here in SA, the brewery is owned by a Japanese company (oh, and we think it doesn’t taste too good either)

Q. But I only like New Zealand sauvignon blanc?

A. SA produces world class wine in all varietals and in particular some of the most highly regarded sauvignon blanc in the world.

Q. What the hell is a pie floater?!

A. A pie, “floating” in a bed of peas garnished with tomato sauce! Seriously, it is on the SA Heritage Icons list and we make our gourmet version from scratch right here in the building in both traditional beef and vego form . . . it’s delicious, trust us.

Q. Is Coopers the only beer you have then?

A. We do indeed stock the Coopers range (because they are great South Ozzies) but we also stock over a dozen other micro-breweries on tap and in the fridge.

Q. Hey do you cater for “insert function type here” (ie. weddings, 21st, office drinks, christening dinners, 50th, divorce parties, etc etc etc)??

A. Absolutely. Let one of our affable staff walk you through the options today.

Q. Uuuummm, like, do you have poikes?

A. No way. Nor do we have TAB, keno or any other way to take your money other than purchasing quality local products from us!

Q. Hey, this music sounds different to what I hear at my local “insert generic pokie baron hotel name here”, why’s that?

A. We choose the music we want to hear. And we don’t listen to Nova!

Q. What night is the Poker league?

A. Really? Haven’t you got the idea yet? We do have a great selection of board games for you to play with your mates over a beer though.
