One of our most favourite all-rounders is Little Creatures at the Fishing Boat Harbour in Freo. Chef loves the massive beer barn, as he’s partial to a pint or two of a good craft beer. I love the buzzing, but chilled atmosphere and we have to drag Little Chef out of the massive sandpit. We all LOVE the simple yet consistently tasty pub food.
We find the inside tables a bit noisy, so we sit out in the back beer garden by the harbour. It’s a fab spot where I happily spend a few hours, usually with our overseas guests. Occasionally it can be a bit breezy, but generally ok and we try to find a shady spot under one of the trees or umbrellas. Otherwise you’ll find plenty of bottles of sun cream hanging around. Little chef and his cousins were as happy as Larry; there’s a large partially shaded sandpit in the beer garden. As I’ve said before… Little Creatures caters very well for our own little creatures!!
The menu is mostly made up of share plates (big & small) and wood fired pizzas. We usually order the pizzas. The harrissa spiced lamb with melanzane and feta pizza ($23) is packed with flavour.
I really love the prawn, Coriander and shitake mushroom woodfired pizza ($24) This topping, it is one of my absolute favourites. The kitchen is always very generous with the juicy big prawns too! I’ve had this pizza more times than I remember.
We enjoy all the food, it’s perfect to share with friends, or in our case pommie relatives. The craft beer is brewed on site. It was a hit with all the blokes – in particular “Rogers” and the “Pilsner”. Little Creatures is a Fremantle treasure and somewhere that Chef and I will always have a big soft spot for.
For years, when visiting Fremantle for the day, the ONLY thing we ate was Fish & Chips. In recent times, we’ve both got a bit disillusioned with the same old deep fried food, we’d been eating every time we went to the Fishing Boat Harbour – so we looked just a little further afield – in Freo there’s plenty to choose from. We’ve found a new favourite; Little Creatures Brewery.
On arrival, we found a table indoors. We were with our parents and UK cousins. It was too noisy for the oldies inside; the venue essentially is a big shed. I think it used to be the crocodile farm years ago.
So we found a great big table out the back in the beer garden, under a tree. It’s a fab spot and overlooks the harbour and the replica of the Duyfken ship. Little chef and his cousins were as happy as Larry; there’s a large shaded sandpit in the beer garden. Little Creatures caters very well for our own little creatures!!
At Little Creatures, on the menu are mostly share plates (big & small) and wood fired pizzas. We had;
Sweet and buttery corn cobs ($8)
Grilled prawn skewers with an almond romesco sauce ($24)
Prawn, Coriander & shitake mushroom woodfired pizza ($24) I really loved this, it was a little different and the flavours really worked. They were very generous with the juicy big prawns too 🙂
Harrissa spiced lamb, melanzane & feta woodfired pizza ($23)
We enjoyed all the food; it’s perfect to share with friends. The craft beer, brewed on site, is also why people go. It was a hit with all the men – in particular “Rogers” and the “Pilsner”. Little Creatures is a very family friendly brewery. It always has a fantastic atmosphere. It’s a Fremantle treasure and somewhere that we will visit on many a sunny afternoon in Freo.
