A famous Australian pub with an alternative edge, the Exeter is an Adelaide landmark; an unassuming East End haunt sitting in an elegant 19th-century building. Very casual with a hint of retro, the decor has not changed much in years. The hotel attracts a very mixed crowd from grungy types to suits. Live alternative bands and DJs regularly entertain at night. Local beer goes down a treat here, but fussier drinkers can select from a decent wine list. The kitchen serves tasty pub cuisine at good prices, including schnitzels, steaks and a variety of burgers.
