Lamont’s is one of those iconic Perth restaurants that like The Heritage, The Trustee and Print Hall, offers fine dining in a beautifually restored heritage building. Lamont’s home is Bishop’s House, a building contructed in the late 1800′s and used as a private home for nearly 100 years before being converted into a multi-level restaurant in late 2010.
Lamont’s not only continues to be one of the city’s best restauants, but also has some undergone some exciting changes. As of Monday, Bishops House has a new bar on the balcony overlooking the heritage listed gardens at Bishops See. Lamont’s Manager Matthew Schwind told us “The new bar concept is in addition to our current level of service. [It's] a relaxed area to enjoy a drink and a nibble, or simply a low casual atmosphere for a gathering after work.”
The Dinner 2012 will mark the restaurant’s second Dine for Life event.
“Lamont’s Bishops House was fortunate enough to be involved with Dine For Life on our opening night in December three years ago, and we have enjoyed being part of it ever since. What a great way to give back to our community and to share our passion for dining with other likeminded guests,” said Schwind. “To be included in this event along with our peers is a privilege.”
In other exciting news for Lamont’s, Corin Lamont was announced as the Icon of the Swan Valley at the recent 2012 Swan Valley Wine Show Dinner. Lamont’s wine has also been recognised of late. Its 2012 Riesling won the trophy for Best Table Wine (Grown Outside the Greater Perth Zone) and also won a gold medal at the Perth Royal Wine Show!
