Located 200 kilometres south of Perth, in a family home that was built in 1851, Newtown House has become somewhat of an institution for south west diners and people going to the wine regions in the area. Stephen Reagan has been at the forefront of chefs in this state for three decades and few honours and awards have escaped him.

Reaganís food reflects the importance he places on top quality local ingredients. The restaurant has a good level of service and the age of the building can add a romantic edge to the dining experience. Guests can dine indoors by the log fire in winter or take advantage of the sun in summer with alternative alfresco dining.

Dishes on the menu include Margaret River venison, milk fed lamb, seasonal farm fresh asparagus, local olive oil, free range beef and more.
The six entrees are always tempting and showcase Reaganís skills with good produce. The main courses are more mainstream but very satisfying.

Presented on white plates, each dish is carefully constructed with vivid flair. Drawing upon local produce, each dish is paired with innovative accompaniments like the roasted apple filled with duck and scallops. Desserts at $12.50 are outstanding and include a hot caramel souffle with lavender ice cream and a special chocolate pudding with raspberry sauce.

Newtown House is not licensed and diners can bring in their local favourites for a minimal corkage fee. The wine service is good at the start but is not sustained through the meal. Food service is efficient and professional but can be a little tardy.

Three courses cost approximately $66.00 per person.

Newtown House has been a regular winner of the Awards for Excellence and in 2003 was declared the Best BYO in Australia.
