You’ll be spoilt for choice with five unique function spaces for small intimate bookings or larger groups of up to 120. Take the stress out of planning your next event and let the experienced team take control.

You don’t need to wait for your mate’s wedding to enjoy the pub, especially for sundowners on the rooftop overlooking the bustle of Unley Road, where you’ll be perfectly positioned to enjoy Adelaide’s picture perfect sunsets.

Head chef Adam Dennis and his team have worked hard on a carefully curated menu which includes light snacks and top-quality pub fare and restaurant style meals. The menu also caters for all dietary requirements such as vegan, vegetarian and gluten free.

Unley classics are available all day and include all your pub favourites such as chicken schnitzel and parmigiana, lemon myrtle salt and pepper squid and the American-style Unley Burger.


Head along for “Burger Friday”, where you can choose from any of the five burgers and get a free tap beer, house wine or soft drink to go with it. Our go-to is the Newton Haloumi Burger featuring Newton haloumi, burger cheese, bourbon-caramelised onion, tomato, beetroot hummus, greens, aioli, brioche bun with chips.

The chef’s selections include dishes inspired by Adam’s travels through Europe and Japan, including his take on Mediterranean ragu gnocchi, lamb rump, miso pork broth and Japanese chicken bowl.

To complement your meal the Unley offers an extensive range of local, craft and international wine, beer and spirits, as well as refreshing elegant cocktails.

Visit The Unley any day of the week for a Happy Hour knock off between 5-6pm and check out the rotating chef’s specials and indulgent desserts on their website.
