The Dalrymple Hotel – Stansbury Yorke Peninsula

Discover, Family Friendly Eats, Regional Eats, Regional Features, Yorke Peninsula, Yorkes | 0 comments

The Dal. You guys are going to LOVE this country pub. It’s the best we can find on the entire Yorke Peninsula and it’s surely gotta be right up there for best on ground in regional SA. Yep, I’m talking a big game, and they bring it, 7 days a week, water front views and incredibly welcoming for families with some great initiatives for kids.

The menu at ‘The Dal’ offers some pub classics (done exceptionally well) alongside some unexpected (because it is a country pub) blow your head off tasty restaurant quality options. We started with some share plates – think Pork Belly Bao, Harvey Bay Scallops + Duck Sliders and the star of our mains were a mix of plant based meals, classic pub fair and a beautiful caramelised pork belly with apple and mint salad. There is always a daily specials board and the menu changes seasonally, but features the highest quality fresh produce including South Australian Seafood and Local Oysters. They also do the regions best pizza. Show me a better one.

The kids are spoilt for choice, with decent sized servings of quality fare accompanied by salad and chips. Save room for a trendy little Sundae in a jar with topping and sprinkles. We particularly love the kids salt & pepper squid, the pizzas and the generous chicken schnitzel.

Enough about the epic food though (thanks Chef Will Glazbrook and Kitchen team)….. THE VIEWS! This is mere meters from the beach. You can eat casually out on ‘The Deck’ overlooking the beautiful Stansbury Bay, or choose the dining room (also with spectacular water views). Additionally there is also a casual beer garden at the back of the venue. Insider tip, ask for a table near the play room. It’s a lovely colourful space featuring a chalk board, wall mural, some toys and play kitchen as well as a lucky dip machine and skill tester (take a few gold bribery coins.)

The Dal offers take away, and a solid favourite of ours is their famous fish and chip cones. Grab one and take it 20m directly over to the beach front, or 150m up to the lovely grassy foreshore playground. The cones are BIG and we generally share two or three between four of us.

It’s worth noting that Stansbury is a small town (purrrrfect for family holidays and weekends), I think that’s why this pub is such a surprise packet, but on any weekend, holidays and special events, this place is busy. Make sure you book, and in advance – don’t expect a same day booking in the middle of summer holidays or a long weekend. Not today Bruce.

You’d be a fool not to include a meal here any time you are heading to Yorkes! Book it in and tell them we say hi.
