Last week I headed off to the newest addition at Leighton Beach. Newer even than the brand new apartments which have fancied up the shoreline down that way of late & an addition which I imagine to be most welcome, especially by its local contingency. It sits on the beach – right on the beach – is bright, airy, cool & a little bit hip & on this particular day, by the time we left, it was also very happening. Take note – it has loos (as in toilets) which have shared wash basins – don’t freak out.

We ate what can only be described as deliciousness. There was this standout dish of Charred Squid with fennel, almonds & chorizo…
This dish of House Smoked Salmon Pizza with pesto, watercress & crispy capers – who doesn’t love a crispy caper?
Seared Haloumi with quinoa, watermelon, chilli & mint…
For something sweet we tried the house baked sweet, which from memory was a Fig & Apple muffin. Sharing this was a mistake, should definitely have ordered one each..
The menu is good, certainly tasty & creative & it’s not over priced, a welcome breath of fresh salty sea air. I think the people will come & they’ll come back. With views like this why wouldn’t they…
It’s early days for the trio of celeb owners, Eamon Sullivan, Steve Hooker & Jamie Dwyer but with great views, a relaxed beachside vibe, good service & welcoming faces, not to mention the amazing food coming out of a kitchen headed up by Scott Bridger – it’s ticking a lot of boxes. It isn’t exactly my local, but I certainly wouldn’t be complaining if it was.
Where: Bib & Tucker – Leighton Beach Boulevard – North Fremantle
Have a great weekend.
