We’re always on the lookout for somewhere new for a pint. The Byrneleigh in Nedlands is just a hop skip and jump from Sir Charles Gardener Hospital, Kings Park and UWA. I had no idea it was there till recently. It’s a funky little venue that serves pub food.
We had lunch there recently. The menu was typical Perth pub fayre. We had chicken parmigiana with chunky chips and a daily special, Salmon with roasted cauliflower quinoa. The parmi was good, but the tomato sauce had an odd, slightly too acidic taste about it. The salmon unfortunately wasn’t medium rare (it was over cooked) but I enjoyed the quinoa.
Admittedly, we wouldn’t rave about the food. But it was ok and with a good discount from my Entertainment Card, it was great value for money. The chefs just need to focus on getting the basics right. I’m not too sure if I’d return there for a meal – but I’d love to go there for a few drinkies – it was a fantastic setting for that, with the astro turfed beer garden and funky vibe its reminiscent of its sister venues “The Aviary” and “The George”.
