Spent the afternoon here with some locals putting some bets on the TAB. Drinks a little expensive but staff very friendly. Food was great. Had the t bone special. Was recommend to come here by the caravan park. Can't say about accommodation but looks good from the outside.

I would recommend this place especially after having to walk away from a place we had booked months earlier. Basic comfortable rooms good bar area good cold draught beer and quality meals. Rate this as exceptional value. Great after our earlier experience elsewhere.

We chose this place for its convenience. So pleased that we did. Against some of the reports here, I chose the beef with Guiness pie, my hubby had a boab burger. As an entree we had the lemon squid. Superb, so tender, served with a lovely fresh salad. My pie was incredible, beautiful flavour and the meat was so tender.... More

When traveling in this part of WA there are limited options of where to stop for a night. The Boab Inn, was fine for a one-night stop over. The staff were friendly and the check in / out process simple. The room was small, clean and very basic, with no extras. There was substantial noise of what appeared to be... More

Wife had a beef and Guinness pie $20 which was flavourless and disappointing. I had a Parma $27 which had been deep fried till black then cheese and ham slapped on... More

Went there with friends recently. Lunch was typical pub meal and priced accordingly. Room for improvement compared to last year. Wouldn't say no to going there again but will wait for feedback in due course.

On a recent trip to Derby we were fortunate to stay at the Boab Inn. Don't know if all the rooms have been renovated but the double we were inn was beautifully renovated and presented. Cost was reasonable compared to all the others. By the way, the pool was really neat! Recommend it!

Had a fantastic meal at the boab inn on Friday 24th April 2015 of oven baked Threadfin in Salmon while enjoying a cold drink. The fish was cooked beautifully it was sweet and juicy. The bar staff were very helpful and efficient. Even though it's like travelling back to the 70's this pub had a real local feel about it.

March 2015 has brought a new chef at the boab inn and sadly meals are now really disappointing. In 2014 the boab was THE BEST pub to eat at in Derby, head and shoulders above the Spinifex (which is a lot flasher). The burger is a patty from the supermarket with craft singles for cheese (what?!), gone is the Parmi's... More
