If you are looking for a place to drop your husband while you shop the Hay St Murray St Mall - this is it! We went several times - the staff is friendly and relaxed, and the guests are out-going with plenty of locals on the weekend. It is in a great area for window shopping and about 5 blocks... More

Been a few times and atmosphere is always lively. Good value meals and good portion sizes. Always Stop here for late lunches while I'm on Saturday shopping expeditions.

After having a Guinness and a good chat we decided to stay for dinner. I ordered the Steak & Guinness pie. At $26 not the cheapest but this is the city. When it arrived I was pleasantly surprised at the size it, which was good. The Steak had been cooked really well and melted in your mouth surrounded by a... More

We ordered two meals, one was the Saturday steak special and the other was Calamaria. The Calamaria could have been nice, but it was undercooked and not crispy. The soggy coating, we couldn't tell whether it was batter or breadcrumbs. Only 50% of the steak was meat, the rest was grisle. Both meals had gritty salad and the chips were... More

We met friends at Durty Nelly's on a Saturday afternoon and had not made a reservation. All the outside tables were either occupied or reserved. Plenty of seating inside despite the pub being busy. Service at the bar was prompt and staff polite and attentive. We chose from the menu which offers typical hearty pub food at a reasonable price.... More

I'd expected good Kilkenny from an Irish bar but was quite disappointed with this one. I've a few Kilkenny in Australian Irish bars and have not been disappointed and this was the first time I found the beer rather watered down and it just didn't have that full bodied, creamy texture. I won't be back for its beer that's for... More

Continuing my quest for the best Fish&Chips during this holiday in Perth. Two of us found this place by accident while bumming around for a dinner eat. This Place was hidden in a lane. Discovered this 'pub' was full with diners and also drinkers. We ordered a steak and a barramundi fish and chips. Food arrived minutes later, and it... More

We had an early dinner on a Sat night and it was already very busy. The T-bone steak special at $18.00 is great value and was delicious. Drinks also were reasonably priced. You would generally need to book a table on a weekend.
