Each year the Australian Hotels Association (SA) hosts a prestigious awards night where they hand out awards for excellence to some of the top pubs and restaurants around South Australia.
This years SA AHA awards night was held at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre on July 24th. Over 750 people attended this glamourous event with entertainment provided by Ricki-Lee Coulter and the evening was hosted by Hamish McLachlan.
The Sevenhill Hotel was nominated for the “SA Best Country Dining” award, which it won in 2017. The competition for this award is always extremely tough given the extensive list of amazing dining venues around our beautiful state who pride themselves on providing exceptional dining experiences. With the high level of competition in mind, Sevenhill Hotel owners and Clare Valley locals, Paul and Kate, were thrilled to receive the Award for a second year in a row!
When asked what makes the Sevenhill Hotel the best country dining in South Australia Kate says “Running this busy traditional Country Hotel, we strive to provide consistently great personable service with a delicious seasonal menu showcasing the amazingly diverse range of regional produce from around the Clare Valley. From the usual pub favourites that everyone knows and loves, we also provide an ala-carte menu and an extensive wine list from which we are happy to make recommendations to pair with your meals.
With different areas in the hotel we can cater for all styles of functions in our beer garden, family dinners, meetings in our boardroom, birthdays, special events, even romantic dates in the cellar. “
Paul and Kate headed to the Gold Coast in September to the AHA National Hotel Awards up against the best Country Venues right across Australia This years National Hotel Awards were hosted at the beautiful Grand Mirage for a long lunch followed by a poolside cocktail party. It was great to mingle with the greatest hotels in Australia swapping stories and experiences which will be used to help keep the Sevenhill Hotel focused on what it can do to win next years awards. Despite not taking out the overall national award, the Sevenhill Hotel still came in the Top 10 in Australia and that is something Kate and Paul are extremely proud of!
