Welcome to the Coorong and the Meningie Hotel. We're all about fresh food and great value with a penchant for live entertainment.

We'd love to pass on our passion for great tasting food and perhaps even share a wine or two with you as you dine on our hand-prepared cuisine with a distinctly Aussie twist.

And our heavenly house-made ice-creams are simply mouth-watering.

We've prepared an elegant space for you to sample some of our local culinary delights while you sip a gorgeous glass of proudly Australian wine. Or perhaps a cup of some of Australia's finest coffee with a house-made sweet treat is more to your taste.

Stay late to enjoy the open fire and our regular live music events in Bar 1867. We even have four rooms upstairs so you can relax and stay the night.

We're a family owned and operated venue. Families are most welcome.
