For Happy Hour, this place is terrific. We've been back a number of times because they're one of the few places that does a Friday afternoon happy hour. $7 on all wines, spirits and tap beers - fantastic! Staff are friendly and the atmosphere is a bit nightclub-ish for afternoon drinks but sit out on the pavement and people watch... More

Just happened to be walking past and noticed Happy Hour $6 Pints... very rare in Perth to find a good place to drink that runs a good Happy Hour. The bar menu is pretty good serving normal pub grub. The Universal Bar has been around for a long time and is very popular at night. The decor is looking old... More

From 5pm-10pm Friday, Saturday and Sunday, the 12 inch pizza and beer special for $10 cannot be beat. The pizza was almost too big for one person+it was very good. They also have $15 steak dinner with a beer on Wednesday and Sunday and $15 chicken parmi dinners on Thursday and Sunday. Give the Universal a go, you will not... More

We had planned on going to the pub next door but they were booked out so we ended up here and I think it was a much better place. We had the pizza and cider deal and the pizza's were done to perfection. The wedges we had as a side order were a little dissappointing, a little overcooked but overall... More
