The menu is designed around smaller plates for sharing as well as the bigger option of ribs, (brisket and pulled pork by the 100g). The bar has its base in rare bourbons and American whiskeys, along with a strong wine and cocktail list for our female patrons. There is Dos Blockos (Melbourne) and Young Henry's natural lager(Sydney) on tap.

Miss Chats

Miss Chatelaine, adventurer and publican. Legend has it Miss Chatelaine was a well-heeled adventuress with a fondness for trinket collecting. After discovering ‘a darling little gin distillery’, ‘wickedly good cocktail’, ‘passionate brewer’ or ‘most charming winemaker’ she would bring her finds back to Fremantle, to share with her band of fellow bohemians. Over exotic dishes of fantastical flavours, she’d regale them with risqué stories about her trysts and escapades. Eventually her salons became so popular, she opened her own establishment, decorated with ephemera from her travels.

Mrs Brown Bar

Mrs Brown is an intimate neighbourhood bar housed in an old Victorian terrace in North Fremantle. We offer a cosy, relaxed and friendly space to catch up with friends for a drink. Whether by the open fire in winter, or in the afternoon sun in our courtyard in summer, Mrs Brown is comfortable and welcoming year round. With an emphasis on wine, we also offer a generous selection of premium spirits, beers and ciders. Try one of our cheese platters, or for something more substantial, order a delicious burger and chips from Flipside Burgers next door.
