We sat outside on a beautiful autumn day to celebrate a girlfriends lunch. It was nice and relaxed and in the vibe of a good pub setting. Views over the stunning Swan River. You had to go to the bar to order the food, but this is generally the case now in a lot of pubs and didn't faze us at all. The service at the bar was excellent and also in choosing a great bottle of wine. We had fish and chips with a more than adequate side salad, plus a fantastic steak sandwich. All in all, this place is fantastic for a catch up and a good pub lunch.

Went for a late Sunday lunch. Nice outside seating & gets very busy. We used The Entertainment card so made it a good price for our meal. started of. Chorizo & olives great sized starter, followed by good sized fish & chips & chicken parmigiana

A great place for meeting up with friends for a drink and dinner. There is also dancing after 9 pm. Has a great backdrop with the beautiful Swan river.

Dined here on a last Monday, there were three of us, I can only comment on the food my partner and I got as we didn't want to make our overseas colleague and guest feel uncomfortable, so didn't have the chance to provide feedback in person which I normally would do. But, based on the Caesar Salad and the steak sandwich, we won't return Nor bring guests. The Caesar salad was ridiculously swamped in dressing, no crunch left in the salad, the egg uncooked to the point of runny whites, if there was any bacon or parmesan on it, it wasn't easy to find, not good enough. Yes I compared to the ones at The Admiral Kwinana and the Junction Grill at Crown both are $18.00 at these two other places where you also got chicken and lots of bacon, parmesan etc. The steak sandwich was all bread the steak was very thin and chewy, it was barely acceptable.

The service was just ok not at all friendly, cheerful or inviting.

We sat inside which doesn't give you much of a view, it is a pub with an eating area not what I'd call a restaurant first and foremost. Generally the "restaurant" had good portion size, quality, presentation, and service, it isn't all that polished but still better than average. Price was a bit expensive but the portion sizes were good and a flashier menu than your traditional pub meals, not the traditional huge pub style portions though. If your a theme person, overall it was just a bit too much of a mix and match, it didn't all gel that well. I'd still go back though 3.5 out 5.

Thanks for your feedback which has been passed on to management. We do not market ourselves as a restaurant, rather a pub that also has a substantial dining offer.

We look forward to welcoming you again soon
