Theirs is a larger amount of mediocrity (and obscene prices) here in Perth though. Far too many pubs owned by Woolies (ALH) as well, which really homogenises a lot of pubs as they all will practically end up with the same shitty menu.
Shame about that. Doesn't Coles own a few hotels with a Liquorland annex? I always thought the Greenwood Hotel was decent when I was living over there, are they owned by Woolies?
In Geraldton where the beer is cheaper than Perth, The Freemason's (nothing suspicious) Hotel has a decent menu/entertainment. In Bunbury I like the Parade Hotel.
Circa 2006, my parents were looking to buy a hotel in Northam east of Perth but unfortunately the returns it was getting didn't make it worth while as it was in a more quiet part of town away from the main street. I drove past a few years later to find the hotel converted into housing.
