Cramped, overpriced drinks and food, warm beer. Interesting selection of food and wine, but they just charge too much.

Nice little place, an unexpected find in Maylands. It's VERY small though but great if you can get a table. Chips were tasty, and the location is right across from the train station which is really handy

This is our go-to place when the girls get together. It's small (book ahead if there's a few of you) and intimate with old railway-carriage seats inside and funky settings in the courtyard. We've eaten our way through the whole menu and haven't found anything that isn't super-scrumptious! Great wine list and live music compliments this great venue.

I was taken here by a Maylands local, it was brilliant if only we had a place like this in Margaret River ! We were lucky to get a table and this was mid week, I loved the food and their selection of wines. I had the Prawn Brioche and we shared the lamb which was SO delicious. I will... More

Lovely ambience with a live band and record player. Food was great. And drinks were perfect. Trendy little spot in Maylands. Grab a booth and enjoy!

I love this place. Small, cosy and true to itself. Doesn't compromise on its style and offerings. Spiced cauliflower is a must IMHO, even if you don't like cauliflower! Always interesting drinks menu. Me? I had the cauliflower with a Barrow Boys Porter and Dalwhinnie single. Very happy chappy indeed. 😄👍

During the day when you look at the outside of the Swallow Bar situated on Whatley Crescent, Maylands, you are greeted by a small door and window with the curtain closed. What lies behind the window and door of an evening is a small and cosy upbeat boutique bar teeming with music and energy! We walked through the door at... More

The Swallow bar- such a Maylands feel to it. Some of the yummiest cocktails & local beer in Perth. The food is always so tastey & interesting (try the frites). Awesome
