Sketches of the original Rob Roy Hotel date back to 1850. It was first licensed by Robert Peter ten years earlier in 1840, making it second only to the Queen’s Head in North Adelaide as the longest continuously operating hotel in Adelaide. The hotel is named for the famous Scottish outlaw Rob Roy MacGregor. This 18th Century Robin Hood was immortalized in Sir Walter Scott’s biography (1817) and more recently in the 1995 film Rob Roy, starring Liam Neeson and Jessica Lange.
Adelaide’s Rob Roy Hotel was built in stages that provide a clue to its longevity. It is one of the oldest hotel buildings in the city. It ranks in importance with the Queens Head in Kermode Street, North Adelaide, Prince Albert in Wright Street and the former Beresford Arms in Gilles Street.
