Stunning views across the river especially from the upstairs veranda. The exciting menu is reasonably priced ,cooked to perfection and well presented, also catering for my friend who is needs Gluten free food. They often offer special meals. I always request a special seating place where as a group of friends we are comfortable and we can talk because it... More

Had a 21st birthday in a private room at the Left Bank - nice venue, good food and good service. Does not carry many mainstream beers or spirits though. Prices for alcohol a little high but compared to the majority not much. Great old building which has keep most of its patina - lovely spot opposite the Swan to have... More

The steak sandwich is good..pizza not bad but overall ok. The view is better! They also more recently seem to be out of alot of beer types...and not replacing... More

Thank you for your honest review, Craig. We always appreciate customers giving us feedback - as it is the only way we can improve. We would certainly describe our Menu as "Pub Grub" - as that is simply what we are. We're a casual Riverside Pub, not a Restaurant anymore. We do have the majority of Tap Beers available at... More

We went to meet friends for breakfast here and vowed never to return after being served over priced food, by staff that seemed disinterested, that took over 45-mins to turn up. Our coffee was cold and as an apology all the disinterested manager could offer up as an apology was "can I get you another coffee mate - I won't... More

Dropped in for lunch with a friend & found a lovely old pub on the banks of the Swan River. On a beautiful day the experience would have been better as the outdoor areas would have been in use where as today most people had to fit inside a relatively small pub, with some of the space being used for...

Thank you for your review and the feedback you have provided us. Yes, summer is definitely our favourite season, when you can sit outside and enjoy the views from the Beer Garden. We're sorry to hear about the mix up of the fish order - I'll certainly forward the comment about the fish being overdone to our chefs, so they... More
