INN Mahogany Creek on Urbanspoon

The service at Inn Mahogany Creek was fabulous. Our waiter was superb – right from the initial phone booking. One of the things that really stood out for me that he interacted with our son “Little Chef”. So many people don’t even acknowledge children when dining out; but he gave him a high five, asked him questions and was generally very welcoming towards us all.IMG_0185This was our first visit to the Inn. I had expected something a little more “old-y world-y” but after a refurb in the last couple of years it’s interior is actually very contemporary. It’s one of the oldest hotels in WA. Though it got pipped to the post for title of the oldest, by just one year, by Guildford’s Rose and Crown. This 186 year old inn has is steeped in history and was even a hideout for the infamous West Australian bushranger Moondyne Joe. He was reportedly captured here after years on the run.

IMG_0174We were dining with my parents, we ate;

IMG_0176Steak Sandwich ($19) Chef really enjoyed this pub food classic. The steak was perfectly cooked and it came with fresh beetroot relish, tomato, lettuce, Swiss cheese, red onion jam, aioli on toasted ciabatta bread and French fries.

UntitlediinBarramundi ($33) This was a moist and crispy skinned barra, sourced from Cone Bay; north of Broome. Served with fries, salad and gribiche sauce (french-style mayo with capers, herbs etc).

IMG_0180Pork Belly ($35) Beans, braised cabbage, Cauliflower puree, broccolini & red wine jus. My Dad loved this dish – especially the pork belly topped with crunchy crackling!

UntitledinGarlic Prawns ($30 main size) Generally, though I love this dish, I don’t order Garlic Prawns when I’m dining out. When we have a BBQ at home, Chef makes them and they are the bomb! This time, I had my wisdom teeth out a couple of days before, so I was on the lookout for soft food! This fitted the bill perfectly and it was a very tasty dish. The tender prawns, creamy garlic sauce & fragrant rice was all spot on.

We all really enjoyed Inn Mahogany Creek. It’s well worth a visit if you’re in the Mundaring area. Great service and well cooked, quality bistro style food.IMG_0189
