Norfolk Hotel

The Norfolk Hotel is a Freo mainstay that has history and charm in abundance

This grand old dame of Freo pubs opened in 1887 as the Oddfellows Hotel and now gives that name to the recently opened basement bar, the Odd Fellow. While downstairs it’s well slung cocktails and beers in low lit surroundings, upstairs in the Norfolk proper you’ve got a great selection of craft on tap and a menu of solid pub food to enjoy in the spruced-up interior or the limestone-lined beer garden.

Norfolk Hotel says
The Norfolk Hotel is located on the corner of South Terrace and Norfolk Street in Fremantle, Western Australia. The stone built hotel was originally constructed in 1887 before the 1893 Kalgoorlie gold rush for George Alfred Davies, a vintner, local councillor and Mayor of Fremantle. For most of its life it was known as the Oddfellows Hotel; it was renamed when it was substantially renovated in 1985.HistoryThe Oddfellows Hotel was constructed by 1877 for George Alfred Davies, who was a well known wine and spirit dealer. Davies had been born in Fremantle in 1846 to a family who had settled in Western Australia only five years after Captain Fremantle first claimed the area for Britain. After working for a number of years with his father, Albert, he established Grosvenor Cellars, selling alcoholic beverages and making his own wine. Davies was also active in public life, serving, in time, as a local councillor and in 1895 as the Mayor of Fremantle.The land where the hotel stands was where Davies was renting out cottages in 1880. Davies applied and received a title deed to all the land in 1884 and in 1887 the first record is seen of the stone-built hotel. The hotel was a successful business that survived George Davies' death in 1897. The hotel was put into a trust that was operated by his widow, Letty Davies, and brothers, George Davies and Arthur Elvin Davies.
