The Earl of Leicester Hotel is minutes from Adelaide CBD and home to the Liars' Bar and the Liars' Restaurant and Courtyard. The restaurant swears it serves the best giant schnitzels in Adelaide. There are also some more upmarket Mod-Oz dishes, like Coffin Bay oysters, on the menu. Beer lovers will love Liars' Bar, which has a "Beer Legends Board" dedicated to patrons who've undertaken a "beer appreciation experience".

PROFILED BY DE GROOTS MEDIA
The stately Earl of Leicester Hotel has resided in Parkside since 1859. The front bar is themed around the “art” of lying. A statue of “Beeza the bull artist” holds court. This beefy beastie is a testament to tall tales told after a few ales. A portrait entertains with a scene of some infamous liars “dining” – Shane Warne and Rose Hancock are seen swapping stories with Monica Lewinsky and Bill Clinton! To be fair, Warney would have been bowled over by the schnitzels, whose reputation overshadow even his. The chunky breadcrumb coating is a winner, like the salt and pepper squid which the kitchen spent 18 months perfecting! Lemon pepper gives it an electric zing.

The Caesar salad impressed me with its use of prosciutto instead of bacon, while mash lovers will adore the comforting, creamy mounds to be found at Liars – the half roasted duck with raspberry jus that accompanies them isn’t bad either. Aged rib-eye is chargrilled, capped with green olive tapenade, and rested on a bed of gratin potato; order a serve of blue cheese sauce to really top it off. Sneak past the reception desk (converted from a genuine court witness box) and into Liar’s cellar, and lift a bottle of St Hallets “Old Block Shiraz” to slurp with your steak.
