Let’s make some
history together

The Principal is your premium local restaurant, bar and wine shop, located in the heart of Midland.

With beautiful red brick and timber floors, our heritage-listed building was once home to the headmaster of one of Midland’s oldest schools. Now, it’s home to some excellent modern Australian cuisine, award-winning Swan Valley wines, and locally-brewed beers.

Dine inside in the heritage listed room, or relax outside in nature. Whether it’s a casual outing with friends and family, or after work drinks, we can accommodate any occasion.

Drop by for lunch, dinner or just a drink

We’re open seven days a week
from 10 am until late with our kitchen open from 11 am.
Bookings can be made in the restaurant or online. Walk-ins are welcome, and you can pull up a table in the bar or beer garden any time.
