A word from The Brompton

Welcome to The Brompton ... Incorporating new and old Where a warm and hospitable welcome awaits you The Brompton was created with a strong concept in mind. It may be all too rare, but there is always something very, very special about a hotel that’s a truly traditional and absolutely genuine “local”. This is what we set out to create. To begin with, and most importantly, we want to give our patrons a type of hotel they’ll always be happy to just drop into whenever the mood takes them. One that will always be friendly, relaxed and comfortable. One that is full of intriguing background character and history. As well as one which offers the perfect match of inviting bar, dining and gaming facilities. But in doing this we also wanted to create something uniquely and totally special with the hotel itself. Thus a decision to lovingly and meticulously renovate the old original 120 year old building. And to then sympathetically add to that a singularly dramatic and architecturally inspiring new area complete with its own stylish courtyard. A development that really is all about bringing delightful-heritage and charismatic-modern together in the one highly welcoming home. In this home is our warm and friendly Brompton Bar , known for its history and our Brompton Gaming Room just neighbouring. Not to mention our Brasserie , Function Area and stylish Courtyard . Created by award winning landmark developers who so wonderfully recreated North Adelaide’s Archer Hotel, this part of the Hotel can only be described as architecturally stunning and visually elegant. We are located in a unique setting and are very easy to find at First Street. All you need to do is simply remember "on First off Chief off Port" . Or if you’re heading in from the opposite direction "on First off Chief off Torrens". First of all, and if you are driving, you can leave your car in our spacious, well lit, security monitored and landscaped parking area that you enter off First Street. Our main entrance – around the dramatically preserved old fireplace and chimney – is then a few steps away. Although it’s almost as close to take the old front door directly into our Gaming Room.And then it’s a very warm and hospitable welcome to your very new old local. Please visit Brompton Hotel's News and Events page to find out about our latest happenings or sign up to our Mailing List . Brompton's friendly staff look forward to hearing from you and hope to see you here soon.

Wow what a great place! We were with a group and had a great time. The waiter was a hoot we will all be back soon. Great courtyard as well. Well done

Have dined here a few times due to it's closeness to home. We have sampled a number of the dishes from both the classic pub fare and the modern Australian menu and the results have been mixed. We have always been served by excellent staff and enjoyed the ambience, but often the meals take a long time to come out (once I waited 30 minutes, then my partner's meal came out another 15 minutes after that) but other times we have had food on the table within 10 minutes of ordering. I recommend the restaurant but it is inconsistent!...

I really like what they have done with this place. I think they may need to advertise abit more as it is hidden away in the back streets. Great place to sneak off to in your lunch break.

Came here after the place was done up. Food and service was great but there was a nothing feel. There may have been alot of money spent on doing it up but still lacks charisma.

Very nicely renovated, nice acoustics but there were only 3 other tables. We all had stonegrill, meat dishes were good value, but seafood platter a rip off in comparison. No one came to take our drink order, first waitress was extremely rude the whole time, she scoffed at us asking for more aioli when she only gave us about 40mls when we had requested one big enough for all 7 to share, she brought back another even smaller dish, to which i explained it wasnt enough an so she got a larger dish an slammed it down on the table. The other was waitress was completely lovely, some people just shouldn't work in hospitality.

Loved the look of the place, this is a pub brought back from the brink. The lunch staff were excellent, helpful and interested, unfortunately the menu is dull, dull, dull. Been there done that, salt & pepper this and that, burger here and there, schznities, steak etc. yawn! For the price we expected a lot more. We found the food uninspired, and bordering on insulting. I would go so far as to say if they rely on their food to promote themselves, they maybe in serious trouble. It has a great deal of promise but doesn't deliver, at present, perhaps soon?
