Its hard to believe that Prancing Pony has only been around for 10 years because in such an incredibly short space of time, they have planted their flag on the local beer landscape so firmly that its hard to remember a time when they weren’t around! When the opportunity came to head up to their flagship brewery and restaurant with the fam to check out where the magic happens, we could not say yes quick enough. Located a stones throw off the Mt Barker turn off up the freeway, the spacious warehouse vibe with all the brewshed kit on display in all its magnificent splendour is right up our alley and Corinna and Frank have succeeded in that rare double….a superb family friendly venue but also a top spot to visit for an adult treat.

Where do we start. Lets kick off with the beer, because of course we are. 17 beers on tap. Count them. 17! To be fair we have probably had a crack at most of them, and are yet to find one we don’t like, which is saying something about their dedication to quality product in not just churning out random flavours for the sake of it. So settle in for a pint of your favourite (Pony Lager for us at the moment or maybe the Sunshine Ale in summer) or grab a paddle with a few of your faves or throw in an obscure flavour you want to try out. Obviously there are plenty of bottled or can packs to take home once you settle on your beer of choice.

So what are the kids doing while you are indulging in brewery heaven? We love so much about this place for the family. In fact our teens have listed it as one of their faves and cannot wait to go back. For us, it is the relaxed vibe, with good live music playing most weekends, with plenty of room to spread out on the large tables and have a crack at the colouring in and puzzles. Sit inside in winter and enjoy the sunshine filled outdoor beer garden when its a tad nicer. Either way you can’t go wrong. But you know we have missed the part the kids love the most….the food!

WIth half a dozen kids options each coming in at $10 bucks, your kids will love this as much as ours we are sure. Big serves and the usual pub options are on offer here, or the older kids can pick from the wider adult’s menu with some of the best pizzas and burgers you will ever wrap your gums around. We are convinced the southern fried chicken burger is filled with pixie dust because it is just absolutely magical and we could not recommend it high enough. Our tiny reviewers gave the hot dog 11 out of 10, plus the chicken nuggets were actual small pieces of chicken….much better than usual nugget quality.

Plenty to explore here too as you stroll around to explore the Brewshed with the kids like we did, with the huge brewery on full display with enormous reaction vessels providing a great opportunity to explain to the kids how things work, plus they look just bloody awesome! Tours are available too so if you are really keen to get behind the scenes, be sure to check those out. We loved the pinball, which was a top windown after a few beers and a big lunch, plus the little kids really got around the spattering of rocking horses located around the brewshed.

Overall, we just love the Pony and will be making it a regular without a shadow of a doubt.

  • We LOVE taking our kids to the theatre. The arts are really important to us as a family and we were determined to instill an appreciation of live theatre in them from a young age. Don't worry - we're not talking about full length operas or gritty plays in another language. We love to go and see kid friendly shows that come to Adelaide such as plays based on their favourite books, children's music groups, magic shows and circuses. It's not always easy though. Even though kids shows are generally short, it can be a big ask for our little people to keep still and stay engaged the whole time. Below are a bunch of tips that we have put together based on our many trips to the theatre in Adelaide with our kids in tow. Hopefully they will help you and your kids enjoy a fun, theatre experience the next time there is a special show on in Adelaide.

Luckily for us, there are heaps of theatre shows that are…
