A Sunday lunch at The Beaufort Street Merchant


I was completely amazed at how packed The Beaufort Street Merchant was on a Sunday! Luckily we booked online. They also have plans to expand the space into Raah’s old space according to the sign we saw, we could barely get to our table around 1pm.

I absolutely loved The Beaufort Merchant setting…the scattered apples, wooden boards as our plates, dim lighting and plenty of wine on display / for purchase.

My friend Mia did wonder if they collected all the apples to make an apple pie once a month 🙂 I am now curious to know!

burger boy loves a good beer. I on the other hand, have been in love with Tomfoolery wine since trying it for the first time at Amani Bar in Leederville so that’s all I was drinking at The Beaufort Street Merchant that lunch 🙂

To start we had some tender pork cheeks and a picnic slab to share…

The cheese had a soft buttery texture that just melted in our mouths.

It seems that our afternoon was filled with cheeks. For mains I had the special beef cheek pie – the house made puff pastry complimented the super tender beef cheeks. I wasn’t a fan of the hazelnut and chicken pea puree and I would have preferred a combination of roasted veggies rather than just onion but that’s just my personal preference.

burger boy had the pull pork burger special , he enjoyed it but I thought it could have been easily replicated at half the price from a BBQ duck house. The chips however, were out of this world.. they were beautifully golden and crisp.

Liam had the lamb shanks which looked amazing and from what I heard tasted great…

For dessert I had sticky date pudding and a serve of ice cream…

My friend Mia and her hubbie Liam had the passionfruit cupcake, which was light and tasty…

burger boy who is a self-confessed chocoholic had the chocolate cupcake….

Of course dessert isn’t complete without coffee. This is my creamy latte…


Lunch was $280 between the four of us including beer and wine, which is a pricey Sunday lunch but the quality and service was worth it. Probably not your weekly lunch option though.

We were astonished by how packed The Beaufort Street Merchant was because it wasn’t a cheap lunch option and the rest of the Beaufort St Strip was fairly quiet in comparison.

  1. Gosh – Any restaurant that serves Sierra Nevada Pale deserves some some extra attention. The photos and presentation of the dishes in general is truly fantastic (Wow – the chips!)… Thanks for the review I cannot wait to go!
