We were referred to this restaurant by one of the bottle store owners as we wanted to try some craft beer in the area without having to self drive to the breweries. We walked past it a few times but it seemed like it was quite quiet so we never went in. When we eventually went we were blown away... read more

Arrived at Margaret river late on a Friday evening, so went to the Settlers for Dinner and a few drinks, it was really busy but we managed to get a seat, the queue for food was large but went down very quickly and we didn't have to wait as long as we though for food I was very impressed.

We stopped here on the way to our hotel after a long drive. The tavern was great, spacious and had a funky style to it. I'd imagine the place to be for bands etc when Margaret River holds events. The staff were all great. Very happy and smiley which goes a long way! The menu was great to suit all... More

Found the staff very friendly and obliging as we decided to move outdoors after being seated and there was no problem. I had the lambshank and it just fell off the bone. Huge portions and well priced. the only let down was the garlic bread, couldn't taste the garlic at all unfortunately. Meal was served quickly after entrée. Would definitely... More

The Tav has one of most comprehensive wine lists I've seen in the area and thats saying something if you're in Margaret River! It has something for almost everyone and prices that range from "everyday drinking" to "that special occasion". It was one of the reasons why we ate here two nights out of six, including my birthday dinner! Food... More

Two couples had dinner and drinks at Settlers, overall very nice. We had Oysters Kilpatrick, BBQ chicken wings, Chicken Parmy, Chicken Ceaser salad, Chicken Taco's & Thai Beef Salad. Overall a very nice meal, with the parmy a little average but the rest was very nice. Drinks were reasonably priced and the atmosphere very good with a travelling musician providing... More

I am reluctant to go there because of the frequent violence. The place has a reputation for fighting.
