Our Pub


The Railway Hotel Port Adelaide opened on the 19 March, 1856 and today continues to provide great service, friendly hospitality and traditional pub fare in the heart of historic Port Adelaide. State Heritage listed the Railway Hotel shows off her beauty and charm to the port with some interesting folklore about the downstairs cellar which today, still contains the old horse stables.

The hotel has recently changed hands and is under new management. The new owners have plans to retain the heritage and beauty of the Railway Hotel bringing a vision which looks to celebrate the best live music and local talent. Having extensive involvement in the music industry themselves the owners are installing premium sound and lighting equipment, in a great pokie free environment!

In 2017, John, Tony & Peter have plans to create a function room which will utilize the amazing upstairs balcony and an inviting beer garden out the back. The owner families live local, buy local supplies and employ some amazing local staff.

For quality meals and drinks with an ever expanding selection of local craft beers visit us any day Thursday to Sunday. You will find us on the corner of St Vincent Street and Lipson Street, one block to the East of the Port Adelaide Visitor Information Centre and a short stroll to the National Railway Museum, Aviation Museum, Maritime Museum, Art Galleries and a variety of other fascinating port attractions.


Our pubs are iconically Port Adelaide and are steeped in history dating all the way back to the state’s beginnings. As Port Adelaide becomes transformed with more than $280m targetting private developments including; residential, commercial and tourist attractions the new management of the Railway Hotel, Port Adelaide will work hard to keep our piece of history alive and stay true to our heritage, whilst still embracing the new growth and changes on offer in the port.
