Located on Karnup Road, this restaurant is perfect if you want to get away from the city and experience award winning food that reflects the early settler lifestyle.

The restaurant itself is a renovated historical residence. Made of stone and boasting a cosy interior as well as a beautiful alfresco eating area, this place is great for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Perhaps one of the most unusual offerings on the menu is Rollmops, a traditional Dutch meal consisting of pickled herring with bread. Equally adventurous is Maatjes Haring (salted herring). Don't panic, though, there are more conventional and kid-friendly meals available. Menus are available on the restaurant website.

It takes about half an hour to drive out to Serpentine from the southern suburbs, through farmland by the Perth Hills. It's a great area to explore, and it really is the gateway into the state's famous South West region.

I've been to Stockman's Rest several times during the last few years, and it's definitely one of my favourite places to spend time with family and friends. The staff never disappoint - they didn't even object when I had my dog with me one day and decided to drop in for afternoon tea. She was practically pampered and made friends with the resident Jack Russell as well. It's a dog's life!

Went for breakfast, very disappointing. My meal was cold, poached eggs like bullets, tough bacon. 2 eggs, 2 rashers, 2 slices of toast, small salad. $16.50. Bit exxy.
