Get Social

Wow! The stand out here is the staff. They were super friendly and went way above and beyond our expectations in every aspect. It's not often you see phenomenal service in Perth, but The Guildford has it!


The Verdict

DIY cocktails, two-foot steak sandwiches and bottomless fries—it sounds too good to be true, but all of this deliciousness is available in one of Perth’s oldest establishments, The Guildford Hotel.

Nearing its 140th birthday, this heritage beauty has undergone a stunning renovation in recent years and we’re so ready to move to Guildford the next chance we get, but for now, we’re going to hang out there every single weekend for Social Sundays.

Forget the beach, this Sunday sesh has got it going on. Think: candyfloss martinis and popcorn margaritas you can make and shake yourself, four-litre mini kegs you can park right next to you and, the pièce de résistance, mega steak sangas. These one foot or two foot bad boys are filled with dozens of onion rings, juicy steak, bacon and BBQ sauce. And did we mention that they come with bottomless fries?! Couple all of that with a DJ sesh kicking off at 1pm and you have yourself the ultimate Sunday session.

During the week, The Guildford is the perfect place for chilled out lunches and dinners; take your pick from the stunningly restored dining room or the gorgeous beer garden. The menu is divided into one handed and two handed eats, burgers and sangas, the pitmaster’s selection and sweet treats—and there’s a LOT of good stuff on there so choosing is no easy task.

We are mad about their smoked, slow cooked BBQ meats and the best way to enjoy them is by ordering the Whole Damn Lot platter which includes one kilo of smoked meat goodness (think: beef brisket, lamb shank, a half chicken and jalapeno, pork and cheddar sausage), seasonal slaw, cornbread and pickles.

Drinks-wise, they’ve got all the good local and New Zealand white, red and pink wines, as well as sparkling from France and Italy, plenty of beers on tap (and more in the fridge) and delish cocktails. The Guildford iced tea is charged with nitrogen and served chilled from a tap, and for only $10 a glass you can afford to buy a round for your gang—cheers to that! And on the subject of bargains, there are a bunch of $20 dinner specials The Guildford rolls out weekly.

If you're keen to learn the tricks of the BBQ trade be sure to head down to one of The Guildford's BBQ masterclasses in the beer garden. They run once a month, tickets cost $60 per person and include a feasting dinner, Feral beers and dessert. Book here. 

What are you waiting for? Call your friends, lovers, grandma or second cousin and get to The Guildford, stat! We guarantee you will never want to leave.
