Lost in a Forest, a little bit of  paradise in the Adelaide Hills.

A wood oven wine bar in beautiful Uraidla, 25 mins from the CBD.

Serving cheffed artisanal pizzas from locally sourced ingredients, paired with a stunning wine list featuring local drops, SA craft tins and a gin list to die for.


Coming into its 7th year, Lost in a Forest was born within the walls of a repurposed 1892 Church. Complete with the original stained glass windows featuring a wine glass, it seemed fitting to create a wood oven wine bar like no other.

Perfect for an intimate dinner for 2, a long table for 10 or even a wedding for many, Lost’s rustic charm creates a truly unique dining experience in a beautifully accessible location in the Adelaide Hills.

Pop in for a glass or stay for the whole experience.

A mezzanine for fifteen?

Lost in a Forest has hosted everything from weddings to ‘wrap’ parties and everything in between.

We can customise an experience for you and your friends and it doesn’t have to be all pizza (but why wouldn’t you?). From our famous charcuterie and antipasto platters, hand made dips and bread to a whole asador lamb, lets us create an experience that’s sure to impress.

St Stephen’s Anglican Church designed by the notable church architect W. K. Mallyon and was opened on 26 December 1892. The final service was held on 16 September 1967.
