High quality at new look Lower Light

ENJOY an icy beer at the Lower Light hotel with Debbie and Neill Sharer.

Neill and Debbie Sharer plan to make the Lower Light Hotel the ‘family friendly’ hotel in the area.
The pair took over the Lower Light Hotel on the Thursday before Christmas last year.
Patrons can expect the best quality food with Neill having 30 years of experience in the hospitality industry as a fully qualified chef.
Having worked at some of the world’s best hotels, he has spent the past 10 years cooking on cruise ships.
Neill was executive chef on the ships, and oversaw the cooking of thousands of meals each day – but he said it was equally challenging to cook for the smaller number of patrons at the hotel.
“The Lower Light has introduced freshly prepared and cooked meals at reasonable prices at both lunch and dinner, seven days a week,” Neill said.
“The hotel does not plan to do special nights such as steak or schnitzel nights as I feel the quality and prices of the meals are reasonable enough to not need to do this,” he said.
He said there had been other gradual changes to the hotel, starting with the refurbished bar stools, making things a lot more comfortable for the patrons.
Starting soon will be the re-introduction of traditional Sunday roast lunches which will see the Lower Light Hotel become the home of ‘real gravy’.
“An outdoor entertaining area with lawns, shade sails and an aviary is being developed at the moment and should be ready soon,” he said.
Debbie is a nurse at the Royal Adelaide Hospital in the Cardiac Unit and she chooses to juggle the hotel with this job.
Neill and Debbie have  five children, with three of their boys, Paul (19), Ross (17) and Cory (15), all helping to run the hotel.
A full wall data projector is a huge hit with the locals watching sport.
The hotel boasts some of the coldest beers in the Adelaide Plains area, stocking a large selection to drink at the hotel or take away.
