While there's no question that pubs are for everyone, sometimes it can be a gamble to pick one that will suit when you have kids in tow. Between the party crowd and elevated pub grub that simple palates turn their nose up at, it's no mean feat.
Because we think everyone deserves to kick back with a pint (or pink lemonade) and pub feed that suits them, here are our picks for the best kid-friendly pubs in Perth.
Victoria Park Hotel
The recent revamp of the Vic Park is definitely a must visit when you’re around the area. With stacks of outdoor space, an amazing beer garden and a fabulous bright colourful playground with lots to explore, this is an ideal spot to bring the friends together for that overdue catch up and soak in the afternoon sunshine while the kids entertain themselves.
Seasonal Brewing Co
This Maylands hot spot is perfect to sip a vino out in the sunshine, and with an outstanding food offerings (including some tasty treats for the kiddies) and plenty of space for the pups and babes to run around in, your weekend is sorted. With a huge sandpit and lots of toys to keep them entertained, all you’ll need to do is decide which of their house-made bevvies you’re keen for next.
Freo’s favourite new gastropub really does have something for everyone. From their sweeping views of the water, to their to-die-for lobster rolls and fab home brews, you’re in for a perfect balmy afternoon catch up here. The best bit for parents? Their massive outdoor fun zone for children featuring an old ‘60s land cruiser and a bunch of cray boats to climb and roam that has lots of seating so you can remain close by.
Clancy’s Fish Pub
It doesn’t get much better than a relaxing balmy afternoon watching the sun set down at the legendary Clancy’s Fish Pub in Freo with some of the city’s greatest fish and chips. With a huge grassy area for kids to let out some energy while the adults can sip on one of their crafty local brews and some of the freshest seafood straight from the harbour.
The Bassendean Hotel
After the completion of their whopping $7 million dollar renovation, you know you’re in for a good time at The Bassendean Hotel. From luxe interiors, plenty of open outdoor space and a killer playground, the whole family can have the greatest arvo out in the sunshine here. With some super yummy kiddie options plus a huge range of great meals and drops for adults, this is definitely a spot to add to your bucket list.
Quarter Acre Hotel
A bright massive outdoor playground and sandpit where you can sip on your cocktail but still watch the little ones from a safe distance? Sign us up. This relaxed super cool spot on Canning Highway in Applecross is the perfect destination for your next catch up with the whole crew that will allow you to spend the arvo working through their big delish menu whilst not having to stress about the kids drawing on tables. What a win.
We love a good bowl of Little Creatures’ crispy salty chippies and a great bevvie on a chilled out afternoon looking out onto the water, while the kids have a great time out in the fab sandpit and playground area. This Freo favourite has tonnes of indoor and outdoor space to sit and enjoy no matter the weather, and has you covered with a bunch of great small people options to eat that will impress even the fussiest of eaters.
This huge bustling micropub overlooking Optus Stadium is surprisingly a great spot to bring the fam along to as it offers loads of lush grassed area and beanbag spaces for you to prop yourself down while the kids have a play close by as well as all-round great vibes. The clever team have also just recently opened The Camfield Creche, the self-proclaimed ‘pub guardian angels’ who can watch over your little ones whilst you can just ease into the weekend. How good.
