Archer Hotel

Pub in Adelaide

A mainstream kinda place for a South Australian wine or a cold beer (glasses maintained at a consistent 2°C), with a jovial big-screen front bar, pool table and fireside lounge. Across the street is the most controversial, stop-start, big-promises patch of dirt in Adelaide: head upstairs to the Archer's balcony to peer down and assess progress (any whatsoever?).
