Adelaide’s Toastiest Fireplaces for Winter Dining

Jun 15, 2018 | Reading Time: 2 minutes

It’s that time of year where we’re longing for comfort foods to feed the soul, and a place to keep us nice and warm.

So, we’ve been on the search for Adelaide’s toastiest fireplaces that you can sit by and enjoy delicious seasonal meals.


The Colonist is a historical gem found in the east of Adelaide. It’s a place where you can stay by the fire all day; enjoy a breakfast of baked caprese eggs doused in a spiced tomato sauce, and a dinner pork belly. Pair it with a Hoppy Porter dark ale.

The Mile End has four fireplaces throughout its 1840’s building. So, you’re certain to find yourself in a prime, cosy inducing position. Enjoy the lamb shoulder ragu, and finish with an espresso martini.

Don’t be deterred by The Unley’s rooftop in the cooler months. You can keep toasty warm with the gas heaters and watch the world go by under the stars. And if that doesn’t do it for you, the food most certainly will! Lamb shank roulade with a parsnip puree, pair it with an Alpha Box and dice Tarot Grenache, or a Moon Dog beer.

There’s nothing better than ruging up for a drive to the Adelaide Hills. Make your destination a visit to The Duck Inn. With two open fireplaces, and rugs available on the deck, you can enjoy a range of seasonal fare. Like the confit duck leg with coconut rice and a Korean chilli sauce. Or for hearty vegetarian option, the satay tofu bowl. Both beautifully paired with a Longview Shiraz Barbera.

Want to head south? Then Mick O’Sheas is the perfect spot nestled in the southern vales. Enjoy ricotta gnocchi with sage butter, next to their open fireplace. Or enjoy the most traditional of comfort foods – beef cheeks slow cooked in red wine.

Stay warm, and well fed this winter. Book online today.
