handy spot for a quiet lunch and a bit of culture

We popped in with some friends and were pleasantly surprised with a very good menu and equally good food on delivery by friendly staff. The art was well worth a look as well

Went to see Madness here on Monday night. Not quite sure how this would go over in an outdoor lawned setting...should have worn flat shoes however the band was brilliant, the show was great and the location was really spectacular.

There is a cute gift shop inside. The centre doesn't take too long to walk through. If you're in the area its worth a peak.

When in Fremantle, visit the arts centre which is an historic building featuring cutting edge art in a quiet and tranquil centre. They also have concerts in the garden. There is also a lovely small courtyard for lunch or coffee

Unfortunately, we were not aware off what a great spot this was and only allowed 45 minutes before closing time. The art gallery was much more extensive than expected with a wonderful display of prints. The gift shop was outstanding and worth a visit on its own.
