The Federal Hotel in Fremantle first opened in 1887, and has recently been refurbished to include accommodation, function spaces and several areas to drink & dine.
Renay and I were recently invited to dine at Samson’s Paddock, a bar & restaurant in Mosman Park, and we visited for lunch last Saturday afternoon.
Last week saw a collaboration dinner between Woodfire Italian Restaurant and Swan Valley boutique winery Little Black Dog Wines. Featuring a traditional shared table menu just like Chef Lorenzo’s Nonna would have cooked for the family back in Italy, each course was served with a glass of carefully-paired wine.
The Henley Brook – also known as The Hen – is a new tavern & bistro located on West Swan Road in the Swan Valley, less than 15 minutes from Ellenbrook.
Last weekend I was invited to the launch of Riverside Brewhouse, a new bar situated within The Old Brewery. I have a soft spot for The Old Brewery – I did get married there, after all…
As regular readers will know, living in Ellenbrook means that I don’t get to Fremantle as often as I’d like, despite there being many restaurants in the area on my “must visit” list. One of them is Propeller in North Freo, so I was thrilled to be invited to attend last week’s “Truffle, Pig & Wine Discovery Degustation” dinner.
Perth has been spoiled by new cafe openings over the past month and joining the party we have Frisch & Barc on Canning Highway in Como.
