As we were in the area we decided to drop into C Y O’Connor Village Pub for a mid week lunch. We settled on a table near the fire inside as it was a little cold, for us, to sit in the alfresco area.

There were a few people eating in the restaurant when we arrived, although this photo looks like it was empty. The decor and ambience were inviting. When the waiter arrived to take our order we had already decided on our mains choice so ordered our drinks and meals at the same time. We waited quite awhile for our drinks, receiving our garlic bread first but the service improved after that.

The website had stated “The seasonally new menu has a variety of influences with an emphasis is on quality steak produced at our very own farms in the South West of WA with a true emphasis on paddock to plate” so with the promise of something special Hubby went for the Scotch Fillet ($), also served with salad and chips, with a garlic sauce. He wasn’t disappointed and thought this was one of the best steaks he’d had in a long time, cooked medium rare, to perfection. The sauce was creamy and flavourful.

I chose salt and pepper squid for my main and it was delicious, very tender and served with a tasty lemon aoli sauce, salad and chips. My only complaint is the salad was just lettuce leaves that had not been dressed well.

We still had just enough room for dessert so decided to share the Apple and Rhubarb Crumble with vanilla custard. It was an attractively plated dish, however we found the lumps of crumble to be a little large. It was very tasty but the custard was a bit thin.

Overall I thought it was reasonably priced, the food was very good and the staff were friendly. I would definitely return.
