The 130 year- old Guildford Hotel is back after one heck of a renovation and it’s better than ever! The food has had an overhaul and the gang here are dishing out plenty of pub classics as well as interesting offerings like cheeseburger spring rolls and smoked pork bao. They’ve got espresso martinis and 18 beers on tap and a specialist gin and whiskey bar for the spirits lovers out there. You’ll find us hanging out in the beer garden by the smoker station waiting on our ribs and brisket! Yum!

Hippocampus, 19 Gordon Street, West Perth, WA 6005 (across from Gordon Street Garage)
We are open to the public on Fridays from 1pm until approximately 8pm. Call Us: (08) 63810179 http://hippocampusmd.com.au/
Gin bar tucked away on Gordon Street in West Perth and the perfect place for a quiet afternoon drink with a grazing plate or two. The raspberry gin is our drink of choice but you should start with a little gin tasting so you can taste them all for yourself. The crew here are also serving up wine and a few other drinks so you’re not limited to gin all night long. Hippocampus has been hanging out in West Perth distilling their amazing vodka and gin for a while, but luckily for the good people of Perth, they decided to use some of that extra space as a bar where you can go and taste said vodka and gin, sip long on a cocktail or two, or simply enjoy a glass of wine.
