Cumberland Hotel (The Cumby)

Cumberland Hotel

Featuring an amazing beer garden and refurbished old school front bar, we serve ice cold beer, great local wines, offer pub meals and live music.

Less than 25 meters from the train station, The Ports Walk & Jog Ride track around the river, our pub is an ideal destination to start and finish any journey to the Port Adelaide or Semaphore shopping and entertainment precincts. Or maybe just hop off the train and spend the afternoon or evening enjoying our inviting atmosphere.

Your publican, Michael Parker, or 'The Rev' as he is known to friends, is dedicated to venue improvements and creating an entertainment hub featuring live entertainment Thursday through to Sunday with the best of the local cover bands and Adelaide's best original artists performing more as we move forward.

Meals are served Wednesday through to Sunday, 8 ball, darts and sports televisions are available all day everyday and a fun filled jukebox rock 8 ball knock-out comp every Tuesday.

The hotel was first licensed in 1871, and has played an important role in the community over the last 125 years as the working harbour of Port Adelaide grew into the modern city it is today.

The Cumby, as she is known to locals, was originally built at the edge of the Port Rivers swamp-front, directly across from Exmouth Road Exeter. As the 20th century neared, and the working Port grew and expanded, land was reclaimed to build the existing harbour, and the pub now stands on terra-firma, situated directly across from Glanville train station.

In those days, the hotel was used not only to serve its colonial ale but also as an auction house for the local land allotments, a coroners office when suspicious deaths occurred, a maternity facility, a meeting venue for town officials, new clubs, committees and disgruntled workers on the ship yards.
