Adelaide, South Australia

A leafy Mitcham oasis, The Edinburgh's contemporary indoor-outdoor layout and great weekend vibe make it a favourite in the area. A great place to get together with friends, this pub features two bars and a dining area, so guests can start with the seasonal pub menu, which features a number of sharing options and schnitzles, before moving to the outdoor bar area for some beers until well into the evening.

The "Ed" has been a fashionable watering hole for decades; its beer garden one in the true sense with lawn, vines and stately centre fountain. It typifies the stylish surrounds of Mitcham, complete with matching neighbourhood clientele. Its dining facility is called a cafe but delivers a restaurant experience. Attentive table service (and fairy lights at night) contribute to a civilised noshing session. Walls of windows bring in waves of light and the abundance of greenery outside. Timber floors and a lofty gabled roof make for casual elegance. If you were not in the burbs, you could quite easily be in one of Adelaide's fabulous wineries. Coincidentally, the Ed just happens to have a (national) award-winning cellar and retail outlet which is a drawcard alone. Its presence is also nicely felt in the wine list.

The menu is well suited to the Ed's generations of drinkers and diners. Schnitzel and steak stalwarts commence a meaty menu that evolves with contemporary roo, game and seafood dishes. The entrees will have haloumi lovers purring. Two slabs of its squeaky saltiness are presented on a well-dressed salad of rocket, crisped prosciutto, snapping fresh pear slivers and fig. The mixed platter is a fun way to mow through starters such as Sicilian meatballs, golden-fried pakhoras and addictive fried green olives. Sexy garlic aioli and assorted sauces sit alongside. The standout main must be the wild rabbit braised in white wine, hazelnuts and cream. South Australian prawn korma is also of high appeal. The Ed's kitchen interpretation focuses on chilli and tomato, so if you love korma dishes for their mild, creamy, cashew-nut-laced sauces, then perhaps reconsider this one. Desserts do not disappoint – a Baileys and banana or rum and raison cheesecake definitely ends things on a satisfying note.
