the sirj is changing!

How long since you visited the new-look Sir John Franklin Hotel in the heart of Kapunda?

Upgrades are continuing in the early months of 2023. A delicious, modern menu, updated furnishings, large screen TVs, upgraded gaming lounge, more beers on tap – yep, it’s all happening!

Rest assured that all of your old favourites are still here. The beer garden (dogs welcome). Sunday music sessions. Daily food and drink specials. TAB and Keno. Then there’s the budget-friendly rooms, perfect for a weekend, a detour from hiking the Heysen Trail or a work stopover.

Come in. You’re always welcome at The SIRJ.

The best food in Kapunda? We think so! From oysters, duck spring rolls, and southern fried chicken sliders to start, to “butcher’s cut” steaks, Atlantic salmon with hollandaise sauce, and all the pub classics. You can’t go wrong at the SIRJ!

Don’t forget to check out our cocktail and wine menu. We’re a stone’s throw from the Barossa Valley, so you know the wines will be memorable – and affordable.



Clean, comfortable and affordable rooms in the main street of Kapunda. Walk-in’s welcome. Please call or email us to secure your room.
