Ball & Chain

The Ball and Chain, one of the oldest pubs in Fremantle has reopened to the public! Join us in the newly renovated space for boutique beers, classic cocktails, delicious bites and more.

The Ball and Chain is a historic venue with a modern take on all things eating and drinking. We have a small selection of plates with locally sourced ingredients, but our main point of emphasis and our staff’s biggest passion is the beverage.

Local Craft Beer from all over Australia with a huge smattering of WA influence. Modern creative cocktails with local ingredients, as well as the tried-and-true classics everyone loves. Spectacular wines from across our state and even a few from a couple of the others.

Here we strive to showcase all the good things WA and Australia has to offer.

Come in, take a load off and enjoy the good things with us.
