There were a lot of different staff serving us, it's nicer when there is just 1-2 people watching the table. One round of drinks was completely forgotten. Staff were very apoligetic, but were run off there feet.

Excellent menu and wine list and staff are very friendly. Definitely come back on a regular basis, perhaps tables could be slightly more separated as may help with ambience and noise levels. Great venue.

First time we had been to the Crafers Hotel for a meal, 2 others joined me (1 from England),
The staff were very friendly and welcoming, very efficient. Loved the ambience of the establishment.
The meals were outstanding. We were all very impressed. We will definitely be back and recommend to others (actually I alraedy have). Thank you for a lovely experience. Kind regards Theresa Campbell

As before on our visits the noise levels in the restaurant are such that people have to raise their voices to be heard by friends on the same table, a shame as there are many ways in which the area could be made a “quieter” environment.

We have loved the hotel food for a long time, but this visit was not up to the usual standard unfortunately. The veggie burger wasn’t great and served with mushrooms that were stone cold from the fridge and the blueberry and apple pudding was tasteless. The waitress was lovely and very attentive.

The service was wonderful. We complained about the food, which was not good, and those serving were very apologetic and seemed legitimately dismayed that we were not having a good time.

Our food woes: we both ordered the duck breast and when it arrived we received the equivalent of less than half a duck breast each. We thought this was unacceptable for the price we were paying ($30) so we complained, only for the staff to give us the feedback from the kitchen that we each had a duck breast each. A duckling breast, maybe. Being lied to by the kitchen only annoyed us more. The duck itself was overcooked, which didn't help. The vegetables served were dull and the sauce tasted of very little.

We were offered a free dessert as compensation for the poor food but we turned it down, given that we had no confidence in the kitchen.

A very disappointing experience.

We have now been to The Crafers Hotel on two occasions (would go more often but we live in Tea Tree Gully) and have absolutely loved it both times - the food is exceptional and quite by chance both times we were seated next to an open fire - I love an open fire.
Thank you Crafers Hotel, you do it so well!

It was a quiet Saturday -grand final day - which we all appreciated. We're going deaf. Excellent service, glasses already on the table, plenty of water topped up. Food came out together. And we love the big windows, high ceilings and inventive decor.

Many thanks.

We often do recommend the Crafers Hotel to friends. We live a 5 minute walk fro the hotel and feel lucky that our local is the best hotel in the hills, possibly all Adelaide.

Had heard a lot about this place and was anxious to give it a try. We were not dissapointing. A great ambience unlike othe hotels. Food was fantastic. My daughter had the seafood chowder and I had the lamb rump. The rump was cooked perfectly and was melt in your mouth. The service was unpretentious but all all staff made us feel wanted and at home. Will definitely be returning soon.

Excellent service and great food. Attractive space for eating but as with most restaurants quite noisy. The stone surfaces look lovely but it is a very "hard" space sonically. Great wine and beer list. I appreciated the availability of a gluten free beer

The waitress we had at the beginning was exceptional -- so helpful and nothing too much trouble. which was great as we had a 92 year old in a wheel chair - really the whole experience was terrific.

We enjoyed the comfortable ambience of the dining room by the open log fire.
The barramundi was cooked to perfection, presented atop a delicious puree. The salad accompaniment was exquisite and tasty.

It may have been an off night but the sommelier .....wasted wage IMO.....was indifferent at best and we watched her slap a glass of wine and be dismissive at another table too. The actual waiting staff were lovely but seemed a bit afraid of the wine waiter & my other party witnessed an apparent altercation between the staff as she arrived at the table. Maybe that explained it but people, be professional & leave your emotions out of food and drink service please, don't take it out on the patrons! I've eaten here before and it was good but overpriced for what we got. This time the food was - like the sommelier - indifferent.

We had a great mid week lunch in beaut window adjent booth. Staff were attentive and knowledgable particularly wine waiter/somelier. Outstanding/astounding wine room.
All round, a great day out as recommended by 2 other friend sd who had had recently enjoyed similar experiences.
Interior decor particularly good - classy but not pretentious. (Albeit an obvious quick ceiling repair needed to be finished off to standard of rest.)

Been before was great.
This time terrible. Gave our entries to the table next door had to wait for them to be remade. They ordered a wrong main had nearly finished other mains when correct main arrived. When the duck arrived it was rubbery as though cooked in a microwave and had not been rested. Kids cheese burger was singed like charcoal and there was no cheese at all.
All the food was well under seasoned.
They did try to recover the service but it was too late. They did go out of their way to rectify their mistakes.
Doubtful we will return which is a shame.

Was so happy to see the wonderful Becky working at The Crafers Hotel. Her smile and gorgeous personality were shining when we visited.
It was our first time and we were seated in a great spot next to the fire. We didn’t have to wait long for our food and it was very nice indeed.
Thanks for a great experience Crafers Hotel (and Becky of course).

The welcome was great, the table setting comfortable, the service was excellent, the wine list outstanding (although a little on the 'pricey' side). The quality of food was good, however only 5 pieces of lamb for $30 + was rather disappointing whilst the batter on the Flathead was too thick and very oily. Overall we really enjoyed the evening and will be back again.

The Crafers is a great place for a relaxed lunch with friends. It had a warm feel on a cold day in winter. The food was very tasty, including the vegetables that accompanied the main dish. The service could not be faulted and the selection of foods quite wide. Also, an interesting selection of drinks, especially beers.

We just had the most fabulous lunch and afternoon celebrating our Dad's 75th Birthday at The Crafters Hotel last Sunday. The Private room, the ambience, the décor, the friendly and attentive staff the food, the service - all was exceptional! We cannot wait to be back and will be highly recommending this wonderful venue to family and friends!

We went to the Crafters pub for lunch on a Saturday. We thoroughly enjoyed it! Great atmosphere, not too noisy, cozy and warm on a cold day. Service was great, very friendly. The food was outstanding! We had one vegetarian in our party and their separate vegetarian/vegan menu has lot more options than is usually offered at pubs. Would highly recommend a visit, we will definately be back!

We loved our lunch there for the mostpart, the only 2 negatives were my beef cheek was way overcooked and was hard and fatty. Pretty disappointing as ususlly it falls apart. When i told the waitress she had nothing to say, no apology or trying to make amends. Havent experienced that before. Also we had wait staff come and ask us if all was satisfactory at the beginning of the meal but not once were we asked if we wanted another drink for the 3 hrs we sat there

Looking at the menu my partner picked a dish, vola a Avent, there was no mention of leek in the dish. When my partner tasted it there was leek in it, ( partner has allergy to leek). S the staff were friendly and helpful and changed the dish. On paying the bill we were charged for three meals, not good enough, the restaurant needs to list all ingredients. Don't think we will be back.
