Just a stone’s throw away from the stunning Sorrento Beach, Greenwood Hotel is a local favourite. Just a 15-minute drive from Perth’s CBD, this establishment is reminiscent of an old-school Irish pub that focuses on community good food. The menu comprises delicious, fresh and locally sourced ingredients, with an extensive selection of beverages, offering an array of tap and bottled beer you could almost create your beer history memorabilia. If you’re a sports lover, there is also a sports bar for you to sit back and relax.

1. Greenwood Hotel

This Perth pub has everything from sports to dancing to delicious food. The Mount Henry Tavern is known for all things that point to a good time. The food is affordable but doesn’t compromise on taste, and there are plenty of big screens to catch all kinds of sports. There is often a dancefloor on the weekends, or if you’re not feeling up to it, quiz night is every Wednesday.

Housed in a stunning heritage-listed building, Hotel Northbridge is one of the best pubs in Perth for drinks, food and excellent accommodation. The pub has been serving travellers for years and shows no signs of slowing down. We recommend trying their vegetarian parmy, the modern take on the pub classic transporting this old-time pub into the 21st century.

A Perth bar and restaurant with a subtle Spanish influence, 43 Below is an exotic inner-city oasis for Perth locals. The establishment is a refurbishment of Perth’s oldest bar, The Alhambra, which you can observe in the old-school decor. The drink list is vast, with plenty of beers on tap too.

One of the best pubs in Perth if you have a big group, the Gosnells Hotel effortlessly caters for all. A vast family bistro serves up all your favourites, and a sports bar you can retire to later to catch the end of the footy. The main bar is cosy and charming- we can’t go past the in-house old tram car!

Newly renovated but maintains the old-school charm the pub is known for. The Carlisle Hotel & Distillery is our one-stop shop for a lively pub. The pub is the perfect spot to come after the footy or cricket, and with 16 beers on tap, you’ll be spoilt for choice. They offer wine lovers an extensive wine list with drops from WA, NZ and other Aussie favourites. There is also a monthly craft beer special.

If you ever find yourself in Inglewood, you’d be a fool not to visit The Civic Hotel. The versatile pub has various reasons to visit- from live wrestling to heavy metal to watching the footy. Try to nab a seat in front of the fireplace, accompanied by one of their fine stouts or delicious red wines- the perfect combination!

The Ocean Beach Hotel is one of the best pubs in Perth if you’re looking for something right on the water. This pub has stunning ocean views and a relaxed atmosphere at the Cottesloe beachside. We recommend a visit here on a lazy Sunday spent drinking beers and relaxing with mates.
