Welcome to the newly renovated and refurbished Barker Hotel, located on the idyllic and historical Gawler Street in the heart of Mount Barker, Adelaide Hills. Just a short 15 minutes up the freeway from Adelaide, this historical hotel has been lovingly restored and renovated over the last three years, and is now open and ready to impress! Originally named the Scotch Thistle in 1840, this modernized and elegant hotel has retained many of its heritage features including much of the original stonework. The Barker Hotel features a stunningly chic lounge bar with high ceilings, cosy fireplaces and large plasma screens. The large bistro with its beautifully vaulted wooden timber ceiling and alfresco dining area serves Mediterranean style food plus classic pub fare seven days a week. The spacious front/sports bar boasts numerous large plasma screens with TAB, KENO and SA Lotto facilities accompanied by a beer garden, while the new gaming room has modern décor with its own private lounge area.
