This is a great pub in the Australian tradition, big high ceiling old fashion bars, and a great informal area out the back in the cave. The atmosphere is wonderful full of people of all ages and types, the staff friendly and the pricing reasonable for Perth.

Maybe just another pub but had ice cold beer - and lots of choice, excellent service, good music and nice comfortable atmosphere - enjoyed ourselves for a few ales I must admit.

I went to Brass Monkey on friday night. The special beer on Tap was quite affordable. It has lot of space and we don't get bore just by sitting on one table. The dining option is cheap as well, I had chicken parmi and it was very yummy. They have excellent service. The music is thrilling. The roof bar is... More

Grab a beer and sit on the veranda upstairs. You can sit and people watch over the main crossing. Good place to relax and unwind. Excellent for a night out too - good people parties.

Dipped in for early dinner before a trip to the theatre and was pleasantly surprised. Menu is standard pub fare but hit the spot. Squid rings for entree were huge and double cheese burger with fries just what i was looking for, fries especially were good. Wife had fish and chips which were also decent. Reasonably priced and service was... More

The Brass Monkey caters for a range of different tastes. It has a traditional 'pub' section where you can sit and enjoy a drink, an indoor beer garden section that provides a nice atmosphere and a rooftop section for drinks. The rooftop is our pick of the areas to drink/eat - you get a nice view of the city! The... More

We often meet at the restaurant with friends for lunch as it is very affordable and great location and great service. It means you can indulge in an outing with friends more often as it isn't costing an arm and a leg. $12 menu. $4 champagne. What more could you ask for. would highly recommend this venue

I had my engagement party on Saturday in the Red Room upstairs. It was a great night and the room was very nice! Spacious with lots of seating and balcony access it was everything we wanted! The food was also great and the platters came with generous portions. Thank you for making our engagement party a night to remember :)

The atmosphere changes from night to night, with Open Mic on a Tuesday, Free BBQ 7pm-9pm on Wednesday, DJs at the weekend - there was even a lingerie fashion show when I visited earlier in the year. Unusually for Perth, part of the bar (which is effectively in a courtyard in the centre) is a smoking section - suits some... More
