The Shamrock restaurant is fantastic
Had a wonderful meal here. They serve a lot of seafood and fish, including the local speciality Marron.
After the meal the chef/owner joined us for a bit, a really nice guy.
Very worth a visit, you will not be dissapointed
Favorite Dish: The trout and Marron
Everything about this restaurant says 'good home-cooked food'. There is nothing fancy. Comfortable dining, good service and great hosts in Helen & Andrew.
A basic menu includes the famous local Marron, other freshwater fish, a selection of seafood and local beef.
The building was established in 1911 as a dormitory for the Pemberton Mill. It made the transition to a restaurant in the 1970's and is still going strong. There is also still accommodation available.
Favorite Dish: I decided to try the local Marron. It was plainly served but extremely delicious. I had all the implements required to get the meat from the claws and legs and even had a lesson from Helen on how best to do this.
Another place that just screams 'good home cooking'! We had breakfast here before leaving Pemberton and if was great.
I also enjoyed the photography display.
We were also greeted by a flock of Port Lincoln Parrots.
Favorite Dish: Lashings of bacon, nicely poached eggs and really tasty mushrooms.
Let Andrew and Helen WoW you with their great country cooking and fresh marron and trout! The Shamrock Restaurant right in the main street of Pembi is the place to be!
Formerly a boarding house for the millworkers, this old building was bought and turned into this restaurant plus accommodation.
We had a fabulous time with Andrew (still with his apron on) joining in for a chat, story and a laugh with us. Helen was also attentative, making sure everything was just right for us. The food was fabulous and washed down with some great reds .... we had a hard time leaving :o)
This restaurant is BYO (bring your own grog) so the money that you save by purchasing your wine at the bottlo and bringing it with you makes it all the more worth it to lash out and get the fresh marron on the menu. Hubby and I shared a platter for 2 and it was absolutely devine and well worth every penny!
This restaurant should be on your 'must do' when visiting Pemberton! Oh and say g'day to Andrew and Helen from me and the mob from vt. :o)
The Shamrock was originally a boarding house built in 1911 for the town's mill workers. It was transformed into a restaurant in the late 1970's and is home of WA's Wagyu Beef (Kobe) and renouned for it's Marron and Trout platter. It's good old fashioned homestyle cooking.
You can actually stay here in the renovated apartments out the back.
Open 6 days a week for dinner and it's BYO.
Favorite Dish: You gotta try the marron when you're in town. The Shamrock does is boiled in salted water, which is lovely.
The Millhouse Cafe was the former recreation centre for the town millworkers. But now, the Millhouse Cafe is open for breakfast or lunch, 7 days a week (except Christmas Day, Boxing Day or Good Friday).

Favorite Dish: Vanilla slice, apple strudel and apple & apricot strudel
Cafe Mazz is open for breakfast from 7am to 10am. Breakfast was good. There was a really big selection, good sized meals and prompt service. It was nice to sit alfresco to watch the day begin.

There’s not a lot to offer in Pemberton but this was one of our choices. They have dine in and take out and the menu is fairly extensive and not unlike most Chinese restaurants. The food was good, maybe a little on the high side. The Chicken and Sweet Corn soup was not the best I’ve had but ok. The other dishes were fine. The restaurant is BYO.
Open Wed, Thurs and Sunday 5.00pm to 8.30pm., Fri and Sat 5.00pm to 9.00pm.
The restaurant is open 7 days a week from 5.30pm. The specialities are the Marron and Trout Platter which serves two. Their home country cooking is well known.
The building was constructed in 1911 and operated as a boarding house for the Pemberton Mill workers. Prior to electricity in the town, it housed batteries which were used for powering the Timber Mill. During the late 1970’s, the café was turned into a restaurant that it is today.
The Millhouse Café is on the main road and also acts as a photo gallery displaying local works. They are open for breakfast and lunch only offering anything from coffee and cake to sandwiches, salads and the usual café fare. You can dine inside or out or just takeaway. Gluten free meals are available and if you bring your own wine, there is a corkage fee. Wheelchair friendly.

Dinner is served from 6.00pm to 8.30pm The hotel serves coffee and cake all day. Charlies dining room has open wood fires and there is a wood paneled lounge bar. Alfresco dining is also available.
This restaurant has mixed reviews on Trip Advisor but Hubby and I give it the full 'Thumbs up!' Our meal here was just sumptuous!! :o) The marron was done to perfection, the service was just right and we enjoyed the surroundings. The thing that set this restaurant apart from the Shamrock was the sauce that they put on the marron. It was light, lemony, buttery and creamy .... and I had to stop myself from licking the plate ;o) I settled for the quick finger pick up and lick instead. Plus the gnocchi was light and bouncy and basically melted in your mouth. Both hubby and I voted the Millhouse Café as No. 2 on our top 5 Restaurants in Australia. Second to the fabulous Peppers Restaurant in the Hunter Valley Wine country north of Sydney.
We came here again with the vt mob for breakky and OMG.... it was fantastic!
Probably the only thing that may let the Millhouse down is that they seem to employ young backpackers. Not that I have anything against that.... but reading the reviews on Trip Advisor it seems that you take your luck with whom you might get in the service department. I guess that both times we dined here we had good service so the Millhouse will need to ensure that whom ever they employ lives up to this high standard.
Anyway, I totally recommend the Millhouse!! See my travelogue for the full story :o)
