4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

A great place for a meal and a drink. The location is terrific and it is a good place to be for "people watching".

“A must-visit for any trip to Perth”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

Great atmosphere, lots of 'olde worlde charm' about the place, friendly staff and punters, good music, live entertainment, reasonable prices, good food and a fantastic balcony overlooking the corner of James and WIllima Sts - you can't beat the Brass Monkey! Can't wait to get back there for another pint and a perfectly cooked steak next time I'm over in Perth!

“Not friendly pub.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

I had the unfortunately experience to try to get into this pub with some friends on New Year's Eve. We were all sober and nicely dress but we have been refused the entry because we were carrying bags....
When asked for explanation, the bouncers replied that it's policy and to move out of the way.
I would recommend the management to provide a course of manners and to keep down their attitude to their door staff.
When I go out to enjoy time with friends in a restaurant or a pub I expect the staff to be at least polite!

“Worst food I have eaten in Australia.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2012 via mobile

I ordered cannelloni. Which was delivered within five minutes. As the sauce had dried up it had obviously been kicking around for some time. It tasted disgusting, the pasta was thick and horrible and not very warm.
The place was grubby and we had to go to the bar to ask for our drinks.
This was at lunchtime when the place was almost empty.I would hate to think what it would be like when busy.
