    As the name suggests, Meatmaiden take their meat dishes very seriously. They have a grill section with 40 day dry-aged meat for maximum flavour. Their menu is interesting to keep the most seasoned meat lovers interested, and we certainly found ourselves spoilt for choice.

    The dining experience is casual with a fun and busy atmosphere. It’s perfect for larger groups, and with a good range of beers, cocktails and wine, friendly service, and a very reasonable price bracket for the quality, it’s a must visit if you’re in the area.

    Before ordering our first course we experienced a couple of pre-dinner cocktails. I ordered the ‘Pickled Martini’, a martini ‘dirtied up’ with house-made pickles. My partner ordered the ‘Smoked Old Fashioned’, a classic cocktail with Woodford Reserve and Apple Smoke. Their cocktails were interesting to say the least, and we were excited to move on to our first course.

    “It’s a must visit if you’re in the area.”

    I ordered the Shrimp Cornbread, with Grilled Prawns and Chipotle Butter. I have to say, the Shrimp were delicious. While my partner ordered the Cajun Tuna, with Horseradish and Avocado. Another delicious starter, the presentation of the dishes was super, and the flavours matched.

    For main courses we sampled their meat specials. We ordered the 250g O’Connor Dry-Aged Pasture 34 Fed Porterhouse. Now I understand why Meatmaiden have such a good reputation for their meat dishes, the steak was absolutely divine. My partner ordered the 220g O’Connor Pasture-fed flat 28 Iron Steak, which was equally as delicious and we were left very impressed. We added sides of Red Slaw and Spring Onion Mash and Gravy to round off our plates.

    Our chosen wine for the evening was Cullen, Cabernet Merlot, Margaret River, WA, 2013. A splendid meat wine, with a bright cherry flavour and a strong red berry body. If you enjoy meat dishes and want to spend the evening in casual and fun surroundings, Meatmaiden will more than live up to that billing.
