Located on The Parade Norwood The Colonist has been going strong since 1851. This gorgeous pub has been stripped back to its raw beauty with high ceilings, ornate copper roofing and original scenic wallpaper.

The pub’s charm and character are ever-present and supported by some of the best pub food Adelaide has to offer. You can enjoy a bite to eat and drink in the main bar, outside dining on the Parade or take advantage of table service in the quaint restaurant featuring Gustav Klimt paintings on the walls.

The sumptuous menu features snacks and small plates, modern Australian dishes and an ever-changing specials list. This is complemented by the finest selection of wine, craft beer and premium spirits, turning a visit to this charming SA pub into an event to remember.

Open 7 days with all-day dining and daily happy hours, The Colonist is the perfect pub to make an impression and leave you with lasting memories.
