WA is slowly opening back up, and it’s obvious we’re all pretty excited to get out and start supporting local pubs, cafes and restaurants in the coming weeks.
Restaurants around town are starting to open for dine-in, so are places down south, and even the old Drive-In Theatre is back in business.
One thing we know a lot of you are hanging for is that classic pub combo – the parmi and pint!
And here’s 20 places you can pop into over the weekend to feed those desires.
Remember to book ahead, be safe, and enjoy one of life’s finest luxuries:
