One of my favourite spots to visit each time I head south. Bridgetown itself is a beautiful town in one of the prettiest areas of WA, even still consider it high on my ’places to retire’ list and the icing on the cake would be this one as my local. Set under the shade of towering woodland and with a nature walk highly recommended it is perfect for families with children. The bar area is tight, the beers tapped straight from draught barrels mounted in the walls. I’d love to see their beers available in bottles, but then again it gives it a charm all its own only having it on draught. The cider is the focus, but the beers are so bloody nice they deserve equal praise. With a modest menu, good food, great staff, support of local artists, singers, songwriters, and a roaring fire for when it gets cold, which is most the year apparently in ol’ Fridgetown, it has a little of everything. Love the set-up, love the location.

3 or 4 beers on tap, not a huge selection but if you like ciders then that improves the visit. Food is available, not a big range as it is only open between 11 and 4 but the serves are generous and the quality is good.
