We came here because of the smoked bbq food that was being advertised, cooked on a $25'000 one and a half ton smoker. We have had "proper" American BBQ before, and from what we read online Settlers was promising a similar experience. We ordered the brisket, and basically got a nice lump of bland meat. The smoke ring was almost... More

Hello Maxolon, Clearly our brisket was not to your liking, and we are terribly sorry to have let you down. We stand behind what we do 100% and are the first to admit we sometimes make mistakes. However, we must take exception to your comments, “crap food” and “great place to get pissed”. Whilst we welcome feedback, your tone and... More

Perfect pub. Good grub, with a big selection, good cider/beer and sport on the tv. If you want a relaxed dinner or drink with good service, go to settlers!

Dined here twice about ten days apart. Filet Mignon served with mushroom sauce, mash and a side of steamed vegetables is a substantial and tasty meal. All meals are substantial and look pretty good. Restaurant was responsive to the dietary restrictions of one of our party. Wine can be purchased by the glass or bottle. Beer, spirits, cider, soft drinks... More

Always a decent meal, great value for money, freshly shucked oysters are a favourite of mine. Big menu and huge wine list. This place is always busy so best to come in early. All time favourite and always reliable...

We went in a group of 4 with 2 of us enjoying our meals and the other 2 not so much. The Seafood Deluxe was.a fried fest of tasteless seafood - one to be avoided but the other meals looked great. The drinks are reasonable, the service quick, friendly and efficient with a band thrown in for an evenings entertainment.... More
