The three victims are recovering with a 39-year-old and 60-year-old having undergone facial and hand surgery at Royal Perth Hospital and a 32-year-old man being treated at Fiona Stanley Hospital.

It is understood there was a private function at the pub and a woman who was refused entry later returned with two males who allegedly carried out the attack.

Police said a 28-year-old from Halls Head and a 34-year-old from Singleton have each been charged with three counts of acts or omissions causing bodily harm or danger. 

Police released a woman in her 30s pending further inquiries.
