Our Ethos & Vision
We are all about community & sustainability!
The pub is the hub!
Australian pubs are the traditional centre of community life. A place to meet, a place for meals and drinks, to work and to celebrate life’s important milestones. Licensed in 1867, The Uraidla Hotel has seen many proprietors come and go, and each one has left their individual legacy for the next.
Our vision is to show respect to our historic market-gardening community, and to leave a lasting, positive impact for future generations. As a modern global community, we are starting to recognise the adverse environmental impact of our growth and industrialisation. Here at Uraidla, we see our hotel as forefront in conducting healthy, sustainable practices in the food and beverage industry. For example, we grow and harvest vegetables and fruit on-site, offer substantial vegan and vegetarian menus, up-cycle useful pre-loved items and furniture, source from local and ethical suppliers, and generally adhere to to the mantra “reduce, re-use, refuse, recycle”. In 2019 we won the AHA Environmental and Energy Efficiency Practice South Australian award, and we intend on building upon our list of environmentally positive systems.
