Bathers Beach House, Fremantle

From the outside, I was not entirely convinced that Bathers Beach House in Fremantleís famous Fishermanís Wharf was at all child friendly.

But after arriving in Fremantle in search of a child-friendly venue for lunch, our first two options had failed after we werenít too impressed with the menu choices. So Bathers Beach House it was.

And from the front.

While the inside isnít particularly family-friendly, the outside is a different story. Not only is the restaurant situated right on the beach, but they have a lovely little beer garden, right next to an open space and a little grassy area where the kids can have a run around.

They also have several menu items for kids, including fish and chips, penne pasta, a chargrilled cheeseburger and a grilled chicken salad Ė all of which are $10, which includes a pop top drinks and an icy pole, making it one of the better value kids meals Iíve come across.

The chargrilled burger.

We parked ourselves outside on the wooden bench style tables and chairs. The restaurant does provide high chairs, and there is plenty of space between tables to park a pram. We had a very attentive, friendly waiter who was so thoughtful in offering my toddler a pop top drink, even though I didnít order her a meal, as she is a little picker and most kids meals just go to waste. The menu has lots of choices including share plates, salads, burgers and seafood.

The kids penne pasta.

It didnít take long for the meals to arrive after we ordered Ė a fish and chips, kids fish and chips, penne pasta and a chargrilled beefburger. There were no complaints about the food. My burger was delicious Ė filled with Swiss cheese, pickles, caramelised onion and tomato and served on a Brioche bun with a little basket of chips, it got a thumbs up from me. My nephew didn't manage to finish his meals, but that was testament to the generosity of the serving size, not because he didnít like it.

Fish and chips.

After our meals, the kids were offered their icy poles, including my daughter Ė again a lovely gesture considering I hadnít ordered her a meal. Perhaps our thoughtful waiter just understands that hell hath no fury like a toddler without a pop top and icy pole Ė especially when her older cousins have one.

So we left, icy poles in hand, and had a walk along the jetty. If you just want to enjoy a coffee or a small meal while relaxing on the beach, you can set up camp on one of the shaded deck chairs while the kids have a paddle in the water, as there is a dedicated waitperson looking after this area.

You can park yourself on the beach for the afternoon.

There are several flights of steps to navigate, plus a couple of big drops from the jetty, so make sure you keep an eye on little wanderers at all times. My little one insisted on going into the water fully clothed, where she fell over and I had to rescue her. So we were both covered in wet sand Ė mummyís favourite!

This was my first visit to Bathers Beach House, and an enjoyable one at that. Iíd love to go back sans child/ren but given thatís not always possible, itís nice to know itís still welcoming for children.
