On Currie Street in the middle of Adelaide city centre, The Colonel Light Hotel is a local favourite staging post on the edge of Light Square. With ample outside seating opportunities, a proper Australian corner hotel balcony and a menu that offers both bar food and contemporary cuisine, there are few places better in Adelaide to pick up a few schooners and a bit of nosebag. They open every day from 11am, so head in for a feed.
The corner hotel is as Australian an institution as Skippy, Blinky Bill and overly-aggressive Stingrays, and at the Colonel Light Hotel on Currie Street in Adelaide city centre, you can find a pub that stands in this great tradition. With extensive outdoor seating and an old-style wooden balcony, they are well-placed to enjoy the sights and sounds of Light Square, and with a menu that is filled with bar classics, one can be assured of a top quality meal as well.
The menu is designed for those patronising the bar – and what a cute wee bar it is! – and so they have packed it with favourites that go well with a schooner or nine. Burgers and butties are the order of the day at the Colonel Light Hotel on Currie Street, and their options are extensive. We recommend picking up a few sliders to get a sampling selection of the burgers, while for sandwiches, we’d plump for the classic Caesar. There are plenty of sides as well, and their bar is as well-stocked as any in Adelaide city centre, so book a table now and pull up a pew.
