Clydesdale Dining

Whenever I am in Fremantle, I always see those Clydesdale's trotting around with a carriage on the back carrying people and wish it was me.

I have never had a horse and carriage ride before. I imagine it is very much like a fairytale though. Something that your partner organises as a surprise evening out for the two of you. He greets you with a rose of course, then you trot off in to the sunset. Sigh. Maybe I'm dreaming.

But hey, guys if you want to get in the good books with the missus, this could be the way to go. Creating a real life fairytale with Clydesdale Dining. That's right, dining. Talk about A la 'cart'.

They actually have a cart that the horses pull along, while you enjoy the marvellous sights of Fremantle, and a meal at the same time. Food, views and Clydesdale's. In the somewhat wise words of Charlie Sheen, can you say 'Winning'?

Perfect for small functions that easily seat fifteen people, or those times when you want to spoil your other half with a table for two, this unique dining opportunity is certainly one to experience.

You can enjoy this ride and the sights for lunch or dinner from November.

Saturday lunch runs for approximately one and a half hours, and costs $95 per adult and $80 for kids. Departing time is around 1:30pm. You'll pass well known tourist sights, such as the Roundhouse, Fremantle Shipwreck Museum, the Cafe Strip and more.

The menu is not currently available, but keep an eye out on their website here. The one course lunches will be provided by Rosie O'Grady's, and if you have had a feed there before, I can tell you that you will enjoy whatever they whip up for the ride.

Now dinner on the other hand is available Friday and Saturday nights, and is 3 courses with BYO. Friday nights, you'll depart at 6pm for two and a half hours, and Saturday evenings you'll depart at 5:30pm for two hours forty five minutes. Prices are the same for both evenings, $155 for adults, and $105 for kids.

The great thing about this time is that you can enjoy the sunset, along with the historic sights of Freo.

For your 3 course meal you can choose from many delicious options, such as a flash fried salt and pepper squid for entree, flame grilled sirloin steak for mains, and french vanilla cheesecake for dessert with fruit coulis and whipped cream. To check out the full dinner menu, see their website here.

So it seems that Perth isn't so small and 'behind the times'. Since writing these articles for Weekend Notes, I have realised just how many unique things there are to do in Perth. We really do live in a beautiful city, and what better way to experience it. Sure beats any revolving restaurant where you see the same thing over and over again. That to me is like one of Paris Hilton's 'songs' on CD on repeat.

I hope that I have encouraged you do to something a little different, and get out and really enjoy Perth.
