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.This 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.
Steak 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.
Garlic 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.
