Cheeky Monkey - Margaret River

Cheeky Monkey Brewery

First stop a brewery! A very busy and family orientated brewery with plenty of areas for your little ones they do have a strange table seating process though. Rocking up without a booking on a Friday lunch it brought back memories of university life, patrolling the area for people leaving then swooping down to claim our table. On the menu are typical pub/cafe type choices, with a few items appealing to the children (fish and chips and pizzas). Price wise it's roughly low 20s for your pub steak sandwich fare and serving size (check out the fish burger pictures) is sufficient though I'd consider it fairly basic when compared to other gourmet burger joints in Perth.

The pizzas were a very popular item with most tables I saw having at least one of them, though I didn't have one but my friends did comment it was on the small side (for a $23 pizza) loaded too much with cheese and falling into the pretentious and wanky side of things. From first glanced they looked like a nice handmade pizza with a good amount of toppings. Their popularity probably stems from the fact it was one of the cheaper menu items from their kitchen.

As with any brewery their beers were their main attraction, offering paddles of beer (tasters of five of their beers) for $12.50 and most pints were around the $8+ mark.

Overall not too bad for a brewery and definitely something you could take the kids to, with high chairs, kids corner and full on playground and grass area for them to run about.
Good for parents but you do pay the price for the convenience.
