I am sure many of you are familiar with Clancy’s Fish Pub in Perth well there is one in Dunsborough. Set in the bush near Dunsborough offering food and drinks 7 days a week 11am until late. A recent addition to the offerings at Clancys in Dunsborough was advertised on the internet and the local paper
“Clancy's Fish Pub Dunsborough is pleased to announce the launch
of the south west's premiere family friendly night affectionately
known as 'Fish Pub Fridays'. With great value and entertainment
the order of the day Fish Pub Fridays will be the perfect way to
celebrate the start of the weekend in our beautiful region.
Clancy's will be offering their famous fish and chips along with
a middy of local beer or a glass of wine for the very reasonable
price of $22. If Richie Benaud was here he would describe it as
'choo for chwenty choo'. For the kids our Red Room will be turned
into a cinema featuring some great kids classics on the big
screen from 5.30pm. A free ticket will be presented when a kids
meal is purchased. Following the kid's flick live entertainment
will follow from 7.30pm with a host of local talented musicians
rostered through for your listening pleasure. Throw in a classic
country "Fish Tray' raffle, some local produce and tasting
stalls to Fish Pub Fridays will be the ideal way to get the
So I decided it sounded like a fun family night out!
We arrived just after 5pm as it was the end of the first week of
the school holidays and only the second week that Clancy’s was
holding the event. We arrived just at the right time! The car
park was already half full of family SUV’s when we arrived and
there was a small line and half the inside tables were
full! We managed to get a table for the 6 of us that was
inside and that was in view of the kids area. By 530pm the line
was out the door and there were no inside tables!
The kids were well catered for with the kids meals, they all
chose fish and chips with the serve huge (we actually only
ordered 3 to share between 4 and they didn’t finish), each meal
came with juice and icy pole.
The adult meals varied from fish and chips to other seafood to pasta to steak. I enjoyed beautiful paella that was very reasonably priced at only $26.
Drinks were also very reasonable with a lot of local wine, beer and cider to choose from.
The local rugby club were raffling an amazing seafood platter which unfortunately I didn’t win! There were also trays of local beers and olives being handed around to sample.
The kids were able to sit with all the other kids in a room
decked out with carpet, a few big lounges and a big screen and
enjoy Ice Age 3 whilst we enjoyed what was almost a date night
dinner and a few drinks in peace!
