If you answered YES to any of the above, then it is time to take a drive down the Fleurieu Peninsula to Smiling Samoyed Brewery at Myponga. It is situated right on the Myponga Reservoir and it is one of our favourite spots to hang out with the family while enjoying a great meal.
Smiling Samoyed Brewery is open 7 days a week and have their pizza oven firing everyday. So there’s no need to wait until a weekend, head down there anytime for a great meal. You’ll be greeted by the stars of the show – Kent and Hoppy, their two GORGEOUS white samoyed dogs who lap up the attention of all the guests.
There is an outdoor playground, perfect to keep the kids entertained while they wait for their food. It’s a decent sized playground too, definitely not an afterthought. Our kids loved playing “houses” on the playground and our three year old learnt how to slide down the fire pole – so much fun!
If it is too wet or too hot to be outside on the playground, don’t worry – the lovely Smiling Samoyed staff will happily fetch some colouring sheets and pencils to keep the kids entertained.
Onto the menu – as we mentioned, the wood oven is busy firing pizzas everyday with some delicious traditional pizzas available, along with some quirky options (kangaroo pizza, anyone?). The rest of the menus is impressive with smaller snacks such as arancini balls, onion rings and tempura cauliflower through to the DELICIOUS desserts. Our tip? Have the Dark Ale Brownie. YUM. Local produce shines throughout the extensive menu.
The drinks list is also extensive, with beer tasting paddles available to sample the Smiling Samoyed beers, along with local wines, spirits, juices and soft drinks. Seriously, settle in for an afternoon here, relax and try a bit of everything while the kids play. You won’t be disappointed!
Make a real day of it and leave time for a walk around the Myponga Reservoir before or after your visit to Smiling Samoyed Brewery. We can guarantee that you will leave with a full belly and a full heart after seeing the kids pat the dogs and have the BEST time on the playground.
