Average main approx $25.00 Orders are made at the bar, and they don't deliver to your table We sat outside - smoking area Attacked by flies Friendly atmosphere Apparently is a good place during the evening Parking obviously at the Lakeside Joondalup

We stopped in on our way home from a big day of sightseeing today and enjoyed happy hour in this busy local pub. Good atmosphere, we were able to get some nice wine, watching local footy on tv. Reasonably priced and right next to railway station and through the shopping centre, a great location for a casual drink or meal.

Four of us had lunch here on a Sunday and we could not fault it. The service, atmosphere and food was all wonderful. Will definitely go again.

Bit snooty. They wouldn't even let us stay to watch the Aus open semi finals because my friend had flip flops on. Would not return.

it is set in a good location in the entertainment area of the shopping centre but the outside beer garden area faces the walkway and is right next to timezone and the cinema entrance where lots of kids are, it is a bad look to allow adults to smoke at this location, surely there is no need to have smoking...

Visited the venue with family for lunch. The girls sat at a table while us lads went to order drinks. After getting the drinks I asked to start a tab but was told if we were eating I'd have to pay at the table. No problem. Sat down and was quickly asked what we wanted. All four meals were served...

Was about to pop into grilled next door and decided to give this place a shot. Unfortunately as they say your first instincts are always right. Table service but took at least 20 minutes to get 2 drinks and for someone to come back and take our food order. Popcorn chicken sliders with slaw was tasteless and forgettable. And chips... More

The Sovereign Arms is at best very average. The food is typical Pub Grub cooked reasonably well. Service is friendly but a little slow. The prices are average for this type of food. This is not somewhere I would be in a hurry to return too.

We visited today for a family lunch and ordered the risotto, barramundi with sweet potato chips and asparagus, 2x scotch fillet and a tasting plate to share. The tasting plate was enough for 4 adults but the calamari was over cooked and chorizo really greasy, however I did really like the bread drizzled with balsamic and the beetroot dip ($29.90)....
