It’s fair to say the German Arms Hotel is one of South Australia’s most iconic watering holes. We’ve certainly won plenty of plaudits and our fair share of followers over the years.

But while our rustic character and age-old charm haven’t changed, today, we’re recognised as one of the finest contemporary pubs in the state.

We’re proud to offer a selection of award-winning local and German beers, an exceptional wine list and one of the most mouth-watering menus that the beautiful and bountiful Adelaide Hills has to offer. And we warmly welcome locals and tourists alike, with open German Arms.

MEET EAT DRINK PLAY

EAT

We might be called the German Arms, but there’s far more to our menu than pretzels and schnitzels (although we do serve delicious, freshly baked pretzels and crunchy golden schnitzels).

Along with signature German dishes, we offer a wide selection of contemporary Australian pub-style classics and daily specials. All our meals are prepared fresh and, wherever possible, made with locally sourced seasonal produce.

 

FOOD MENU    

Drink

Fancy a beer? Well, you’re spoilt for choice. We’re renowned for our range of Bavarian brews. To bring you the best, we went to helles and bock – along with a few pilsners and wheat beers.

Of course, our drinks menu couldn’t be complete without a few locals. We’re pleased to support our regional producers, who operate some of the best boutique breweries, cideries (yes, it is a word) and distilleries in the country.

As for our wine list? We’re in the Adelaide Hills – enough said.

COVID-19 UPDATE:

To our loyal Patrons and Guests,

In line with the easing of South Australian Government restrictions, we will be operating at 75% venue capacity. There are a few important things that will remain in place even after restrictions have eased, to keep you as well as our staff safe!

  • Please keep physical distance. Our venue is working with a 3 person per 4sqm rule at present;
  • Stand up eating and drinking is not permitted.

The German Arms will endeavour to keep you updated.

Once again, we would like to thank all our loyal patrons and local community for your support during this time.  Stay safe and well.
