Sketches of the original Rob Roy Hotel date back to 1850. It was first licensed by Robert Peter ten years earlier in 1840, making it second only to the Queen’s Head in North Adelaide as the longest continuously operating hotel in Adelaide. The hotel is named for the famous Scottish outlaw Rob Roy MacGregor. This 18th Century Robin Hood was immortalized in Sir Walter Scott’s biography (1817) and more recently in the 1995 film Rob Roy, starring Liam Neeson and Jessica Lange.​ Adelaide’s Rob Roy Hotel was built in stages that provide a clue to its longevity. It is one of the oldest hotel buildings in the city. It ranks in importance with the Queens Head in Kermode Street, North Adelaide, Prince Albert in Wright Street and the former Beresford Arms in Gilles Street. It's the perfect spot for social dining that brings people together, where the outside seeps in and the community begins.

    Delicious food, Nice country pub feel. They had live music (on a Friday evening) and I thought 'here goes, that will kill any conversation) but it was lovely, not too loud and a great selection of songs, beautifully sung.

    Great food, nice location. Only issue being the booking process. It was not clear that booking the ‘high table’ meant we were outside. It did get cold as the night progressed.

    Great food. I had the sirloin steak and my partner the salmon. I ate every last piece of mine but the portion of salmon was too much for Doris who although she was thorough enjoying it found the portion size a bit overwhelming. The staff were friendly and genuine. Recommend for a pleasant and enjoyable night out..

    The Rob Roy is a great place for lunch, dinner or a beer or three. The staff are friendly and provide great service. Food is a good mixture of classic pub food with a nice twist... Recommend the Parmy Killatrick. Their Rob Roy Ale is also a nice drop. Took friends and all are looking forward to going black for another session...

    Food was good but took over an hour to come out (despite getting in early at 5:45pm). Also a really rowdy group in the front bar, which obviously wasn’t the pubs fault, that made it almost impossible to hear anyone at our table. Made the experience pretty disappointing.

    We were there for a Fringe show last Saturday night. They were seriously under the pump, and possibly understaffed, but the bar and kitchen staff were doing a fantastic job and remained calm and friendly under pressure. Ordered 4 meals (same table), first two came out together and the other two about 15-20 minutes later. Staff were apologetic and gave us a free drink. Not sure what the issue was. Food was tasty and good value.

    Brilliant service as we stepped through the door! Platters were amazing and plenty of food. Burgers were a hit and schnitzels looked fantastic - great dining experience, better than your average pub food - it’s definitely a step up 👍🏼 We had a great night celebrating a birthday - the staff were amazing and enthusiastic

    Unfortunate that our meals weren't all that we ordered, but like the location and had a great table and the road noise was no distraction at all. Friendly staff but one got the order wrong.
