Spring Fling

Spring is here with a bang in true Adelaide style and we really know how to make the most of these lazy sunny days and gorgeous balmy nights. Come and try our divine Tempura Battered Line Caught K.I. Garfish with fries and salad plus a Peroni or Sauvignon Blanc to sweeten the deal.

From brewing beginnings to a modern enterprise,
The Lion is one of South Australia's most iconic buildings.

Built in 1871, the Lion Brewery was a modern masterpiece of its time. It reflected the vibrant growth of South Australia and was known for producing quality, specially crafted beer.

Today, The Lion seamlessly blends contemporary architecture with the heritage fabric of the building to deliver The Lion experience that patrons know and love.
