The Cheeky Monkey Brewery Margaret River is often mentioned as a top kid friendly stop in the Margaret River region and we have to say, that we totally agree. This fun craft brewery and restaurant ticks all the boxes in summer and in winter.
Ambiance – Cheeky Monkey Brewery Margaret River
For starters the Cheeky Monkey Brewery is really well located; just off busy Caves Road. You can easily swing in a visit to the Margaret River Chocolate Factory or the Cape Lavender Teahouse before or after a stop at Cheeky Monkeyn Brewery Margaret River.
Totally fitting for a family kind of atmosphere. You also see young twenty-somethings enjoying the beer tasters, while you see pensioners enjoying a beer and while tucking into the mouth-watering pizza.
Inside the Cheeky Monkey Margaret River, the atmosphere is friendly and convivial with big warm fires roaring in the heath on a winter’s day. A wood décor gives it a hospital and cosy feeling. While the big practical table’s means that you could pull up a stool for two or for a large group. We saw a number of extended families with grandparents right through to babies overflowing from the large practical tables. Huge ceilings and fun monkeys give the whole place a light-hearted feel, while there is a touch of elegance around the cellar door area. We would describe the Cheeky Monkey as classy without being pretentious.
We can only rave about the well-equipped outside area. Our family was there on an early spring day. It wasn’t terribly warm, but still the area was packed with families having a fantastic time. Kids can play in the big playground, suitable for approximately 2 to 8 years old.
If the playground doesn’t excite them, there is a great big dam, with a couple of little bridges, a jetty and a creek running through. If you have a kid that likes to get wet and muddy, then pack a change of clothes. We wished we had have been carrying extras! Our kids would have had a ball playing in the mud!
Food – Cheeky Monkey Margaret River
As to be expected for a family friendly winery, the food was good, nourishing, and portions plentiful. There are some practical kid’s meals, like kids ham and cheese pizza and fish and chips.
The menu for the adults is simple, good hearty fare. You can have a range of one of 5 mouth-watering wood fired pizzas, absolutely delicious. There was enough variety and twists in the menu for foodies to feel that were fulfilled. For example, what could have been a Hawaiian pizza had a touch of truffle oil. This added a delicious variation to what could have otherwise been a pretty plain ham and pineapple pizza that we shared amongst the kids and ourselves.
Of course you don’t go to Cheeky Monkey Brewery if you don’t have a taste of the different beers. We enjoyed both the Cheeky Monkey Pale Ale, and the Cheeky Monkey Apple Cider.
Sometimes when things are advertised as family friendly, it doesn’t meet your expectations, but in the case of Cheeky Monkey Brewery it was all that we hoped and it ticked all the boxes. Warm and cosy inside during the winter, expansive lawns for nature play, and a very good playground for those that want to keep the kids fenced in.
Winter or summer, the Cheeky Monkey is a great place to take the kids in the Margaret River region. Whether it is for a refuel on a busy day or a leisurely beer and lunch, Cheeky Monkey Brewery Margaret River worked for us.
