Review by Alison Cridge
We live in Guildford so we tend to go out in the Swan Valley at least once a month as it’s so close by and there’s lots of options to eat, drink and play. My husband loves his craft beer so for a change he wanted to be in charge of our Australia Day plans, I wasn’t going to complain so the next thing you know a group of us had a table booked at Mash Brewing on West Swan Road.
I haven’t eaten there for a good couple of years so was looking forward to seeing what they had on offer (other than beer) for us and the kids.
As soon as we walked in I could see the kids area had an upgrade as it’s now gated! Great for my little one as we could put him in there and know he wouldn’t be able to escape into the carpark, but not so great for my oldest who wanted me to let her in and out all afternoon. But it was a good spot for the kids to discover some different toys and books, there was a TV in there which played a short movie, a chalkboard table and another little corner for the kids.
Dishes on the menu ranged from a $20 for an eggplant parma to $39 for a rib-eye steak, a good selection of share plates and I noticed there were quite a few gluten free options.
Kids meals were all $13 which included a drink. They had all the usual suspects – chicken strips, fish and chips, pizza, spag bol and even a mini rump steak on the menu. Kids eat free on Fridays after 5pm so I think we’ll have to plan around that next time!
The kids meals arrived with our entrees so they were finished by the time our mains arrived, but were happy to play in the kids area which we could see from our table.
They brew all of their beer in the Swan Valley and you can also watch the brewers behind the bar when they're hard at work.
Being Australia Day there was a public holiday surcharge on all food and drink, but they did put on a bouncy castle and there was a special menu (hello Vegemite and cheese toastie!).
It’s a great location, next to Supa Golf and across the road from the West Swan Hall and carpark which sometimes has food vans or roadside fruit ‘n veg for sale and a small shaded play space. Mash also have restaurants in Rockingham and Bunbury.
Mash Swan Valley is open for lunch 7 days a week from 11am, they close at 5pm on Monday/Tuesday, 8pm on Wednesday/Thursday/Sunday and 9pm Friday/Saturday.
