“Surprise in Derby”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Modern, new and clean. Nice spot to call in for a late afternoon drink. We didn't eat here, but the restaurant looked nice. There's accommodation too and it was also new and modern from the outside.

“Service and Food best in North West”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

The service and meal I experienced recently at the Spinifex Hotel was better than some of the best restaurants in Perth.

Great steak and service. Wine list is good.

“Wow, the Spini has changed!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

We used to go to the Spini in the early 1990s and you wouldn't recognize it now! We stopped off for lunch and were really impressed with the new Spini. The menu is your standard pub menu, although a bit more expensive, but fairly standard for the Kimberley. The steak sandwich was delicious, although chunkier bread would have been better to stop it falling apart. My husband had the barra burger and gave it a big thumbs up. The dining room is a bit dark, but nice. Probably the best place to have a good lunch in Derby, and on the day we were there, we couldn't see many other options.

“Good quality pub meals in Derby”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

The Spinifex had a substantial makeover in 2012 and boasts a large dining room adjoining the public bar area, with outdoor seating. The meals are good-sized servings, with meat, fish, and pasta on offer. The few times I have been there, the service staff have been willing and helpful but seem a bit inexperienced. Can be a bit noisy some nights due to the proximity of the public bar.
