Come and join us for lunch or dinner any day of the week
At The Old Brewery we serve real food, taken to heights which delight even the most sophisticated palate – without the ‘gastro babble’. The reason we’ve been named WA’s “Best Steak Restaurant” in Perth five times in a row is quite simple; we serve only the best steak, cooked to perfection and presented by some of the best people in the business.
And we work hard to make it seem so simple. We want your experience at The Old Brewery to be the best of dining memories, fabulous food with great service in one of the most spectacular riverside locations to be found around the glorious city of Perth.
Starting with our steak, we have standards, very high standards. Through our association with Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA) we continually strive to source only the finest red meat from farms throughout Australia.
Organic Wagyu beef from Margaret River, grass and grain fed Black Angus from Lake Preston WA, grass fed Spring Grove crossbreed European Limousin/Charolais cattle from farms in the Victorian high country.
Our meat is also certified under the Meat Standard Australia (MSA) system, a complex set of standards, which aims to accurately predict the tenderness, juiciness and flavour of individual cuts of beef and lamb.
One of the other special things we look out for is the amount of white marbling that runs through the meat. The marbling is the good fat that gives fabulous flavour and tenderness to a great piece of meat like a Wagyu steak.
Ever wondered what all the fuss was about dry aging – you’ll find out at The Old Brewery.
Dry aging is the traditional process we use where a whole cut of beef is placed uncovered in a controlled environment at a cool 2-7 degrees celsius and 70-90% relative humidity for 21 to 28 days. The gentle slow tenderising process occurs as naturally occurring enzymes break down proteins in the muscle fibres making the cooked meat literally melt in the mouth.
The Legendary ‘Tomahawk Steak’…
Connect with your inner carnivore with Chef Greg Farnan’s famous ‘Tomahawk Steak’ The Tomahawk is one of the largest steaks served in Australia, weighing in at 1.4kg – 2.7kg (1.8kg average). Each Tomahawk is sourced from revered Wagyu beef, from the lush fields of the Margaret River. The name is derived from the mammoth 30cm rib bone which remains when the meat is cut away. It’s the dinosaur steak of a caveman’s dreams. This special steak is recommended to be cooked medium to make the most of the meat’s extraordinary marbling, and is carved at the table and shared between two or a few.
Check out our menu for all the fabulous cuts we have for you. Choose from a dainty 120g eye fillet right up to our 700g organic tomahawk for one or 1.4-2.7kg tomahawk – perfect for sharing.
There’s something for everyone at The Old Brewery. Our ‘dishes that aren’t beef’ include grain fed Dorper lamb from Lake Grace, Riverlea grain fed pork from Murray River, Victorian kangaroo or venison from South Australia, wild buffalo from the Northern Territory, free range poultry and a superb array of sensational seafood.
Add to that culinary soul food sides like potato mash, macaroni cheese or steak cut chips, or move higher up the food chain with chargrilled asparagus or a light leafy salad. Dive into desserts like banoffee pie, sticky date and banana pudding, or a luscious lavender crème brûlée…
Get really excited and see what else awaits you at lunch or dinner any day of the week, but remember there are always daily specials to surprise you when you arrive.
