Have been here quite a bit for work catchups. Nice platters and decore. Different areas that can be booked and cornered off on request for larger groups. Often has live music (which is hit n miss)

Had not been to this hotel for over 20 years and was pleasantly surprised at level of service and the quality of the food for lunch. Menu had good selection and wine list had good selection of local wines. Food arrived in a timely manner and was a very good standard.

Amazing how you live in a suburb or a certain town and have never been to one of the local pubs but this changed on Sunday after we decided to grab some lunch out.
Sunday midday we walked into the Mount Barker Bistro and the place was empty which is never a good sign albeit it was only midday.... 30 mins later the bistro was packed so there's my good sign.
The staff treated us like we had been Coming there for years and were very helpful and the food choices were very extenensive with some great local wines on offer like " Bird in Hand"
Thoroughly enjoyed and have booked again with a group of others this weekend .

Went to Mt Barker for the day with friends & came across The Barker. Great service & the pies were the best we had eaten. Can definitely recommend the Venison pie. Would go back for sure.
