“Ok to catch up with friends.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013 via mobile

A bit expensive for the quality if food you receive. The food is quite average with a bit of an English flavour. Do you want peas with that?
Ordered from both the main menu and the children's menu. Tip. If you are not too hungry, order from the kids menu. Better value for money. More food for your $. Especially the kids build your own ice cream sundae. This would have been the highlight of the meal.
Food tasted ok though not good for the $ you pay.
Live band playing the night we went And you are able to watch the football whilst having a drink. Seating is inside and out. Very pleasant sitting outside on a warm winter evening.
Staff were pleasant though seemed a bit flustered. Maybe not enough staff for the patrons?

“On the Waters edge”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

Very pleasant staff and excellent food. Sitting outside to eat in the sunshine and overlooking the harbour was a real treat for this Brit. Gulls are a bit of a pain but they didn't pinch any of my food so no big deal. Would certainly eat there again when next in Perth.

“Good pub food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

This is a great place to spend a Sunday afternoon. The food is pretty standard pub grub but tasty and large portions. A substantial choice of wine by the glass and always a fun atmosphere. Lots of indoor seating as well as a nice outdoor area overlooking the marina.
