For the second year in a row, Adelaide have topped the National Australian Hospitality Awards for 'Best Outdoor/Non Enclosed Venue'; meaning we're still home to Australia's Best Beer Garden.
Last year, inner-city venue Republic took out top spot - this year over-shadowed by The Gully Public House & Garden's considerably larger, leafy-green exterior. If you haven't yet ventured into The Gully's beer garden, be prepared to experience some serious FOMO.
Extending across three levels, the beer garden houses two bars, six old-style cabanas, a patio with hanging chairs, mezzanine area, gas heating, two open fire places and ridiculously large TV screen (perfect to watch the footy on this weekend, amirite). The decking has been constructed around 100 year old trees, enabling patrons to enjoy dining outdoors. If you're not feeling so inspired by natured (or Adelaide decides to have another freak thunderstorm in Spring), you can park your behind under the giant canopy.
The award comes after a two-million dollar renovation, transforming this historical site into something really special. The Beer Garden is full with different textures, plants and patterns, making this one aesthetically pleasing space that is both beautiful and comfortable.
Accompanying the aesthetics, The Gully's food and drinks lists compare to be equally as impressive. With a focus on local, fresh and wholesome ingredients, this is one pub that is really pushing the boundaries of excellence. Traditional pub favourites sit alongside fresh pastas, wood-oven pizzas and exciting meat offerings on the menu, while their selection of beers, wines, cocktails and spirits are equally as extensive.
We're pretty proud that Adelaide is home to two of Australia's best beer gardens, so make sure you check out what they have to offer... the long weekend could be a good place to start!
