The Great Eastern Hotel is a family owned and operated hotel located in the Adelaide Hills, just 30 mins from Adelaide’s CBD. The Great Eastern Hotel consists of two Bars, Large Outdoor Decking, Restaurant with exceptional food at great prices, Gaming Lounge and a drive through Bottle Shop. The Great Eastern Hotel prides itself on providing an authentic Country Pub experience with high quality customer service.
The Great Eastern Hotel was built in 1843 and was first licenced in 1854 and has been a popular watering hole for Adelaide Hills locals and day-trippers. Just 10 minutes from Oakbank’s famous racecourse. Legend has it that the first meeting to organise the Great Eastern Steeplechase was held in the hotel so bears its name. A Great Eastern Steeplechase mural in the front bar depicts some of the hotel’s history.
Bruno serves the community well. Always a good special at the drive through bottle-o!!!
Our meal last night was excellent as usual. We are so fortunate to have the Great Eastern so close to home and that is why we are there so often.

You went the extra mile for Mothers Day. Food was great and staff polite and efficient. Tables beautifully presented. Thank you so much.
A great place to catch up with friends. Very good value for money meals.
Excellent meal and great atmosphere!! The staff were bubbly, chatty and great! All in all, it was a great night. We didn't reserve, though the bubbly attendant was quite happy to seat us by the fire! 10 points for your effort!
The best drive through in the hills. The team are always happy to price match should they be beaten elsewhere. They're a genuinely friendly team and also very knowledgeable.
Grab a bunch of friends and book out the cellar room. Meat and Wine what could be better! 😉
