Mount Helena Tavern, Mount Helena

We love a historic Perth Hills pub. The Mount Helena Tavern, first established in 1902, retains many of its period features. We’d never visited before, and we were delighted to find a country-style tavern with oodles of character.

Known locally as “The Mounties” the traditional Australian pub has a bar area, games area with pool tables, lounge areas with Chesterfield sofas and open fireplaces, and a formal dining room inside.

Outside, there’s a large, grassy beer garden where there are plenty of tables overlooking a small kids play area and stream which flows in winter.

Service has that good old fashioned country feel – our waitress was so friendly and helpful.

The Mount Helena Tavern has a big menu with all the pub favourites – burgers, fish n chips, steak, pizza and more. There’s plenty of specials on throughout the week (like $15 fish n chips on Thursdays and $20 roasts on the weekend). I enjoyed a grilled fish with chips and salad. Also available beer battered, the tasty snapper fillet is served with homemade tartare sauce and fresh lemon.

My husband, ordered the “Steak Snaga” ($24). A juicy grilled sirloin steak is served with homemade tomato relish, bacon, onion jam, cheese, mesculin lettuce, fresh tomato and aioli in a toasted Turkish roll. And served with a side of chips.

The “Chicken Parmi” ($26) also looked delicious. The large homemade panko crumbed chicken breast topped with Napoli sauce and three cheeses, is served with chips and a fresh garden salad.

All in All

The Mount Helena Tavern is a lovely spot to stop at in the Perth Hills. We loved the “olde worlde” feel. The pub food is good quality – tasty, unpretentious and good value. We’ll be heading back, I’d love to sit by the fire with a glass of wine on a chilly Perth Hills day!
