We have been meaning to write a review of Settlers for some time as we visit often. No matter what night we visit Settlers is consistently a top class "pub restaurant". It is excellent. The food, service, atmosphere are all top class. Staff are very friendly and efficient in this busy restaurant. Specials are good and food is well-priced. Freshly... More

The food was great. Big serves and fresh (I has oysters and golden snapper). Our waiter ALEX was lovely and attentive. Bar selection is also good. Has a really nice white ale. We are heading back for lunch today to try the pulled pork!

We walked from our apartment to expect normal tavern food, we were completely surprised by the attitude of the staff, so friendly, and the food was excellent, if only their were more places like this.

We found Settlers while walking down the main street looking for somewhere to have a quick Sunday lunch. The menu on the front wall lured us in! We entered through the front bar and were greeted by a lovely waitress two steps into the lounge/dining room. The service was brilliant from both wait staff as well as at the bar.... More

The food was amazing - try the Slow Cooked Beef Brisket or the Calamari - and the staff are sooo friendly as well. They employ a lot of experienced staff with an overseas background, so the diversity was awesome too. It's in a great location, half way down the main drag, so it's in a really convenient location. They always... More

My only criticism....kitchen closes at 8:30 sharp. Settlers tavern was heaving at 7 pm when we walked in. I was seriously concerned we would be waiting a long time for meals given the long line of patrons waiting for service. I was beyond impressed however when we were presented with our delicious, generous meals less than 10 minutes later. It... More

I really think this is one of the best places in the South West to get a good selection of beer and a comprehensive selection of dishes. The food is plentiful and never disappoints. The menu is very varied and the specials change regularly. There are always new and interesting dishes to try. It is well worth the hour's drive... More

We didn't stay to eat but did pop in for a cold local beer. The place was heaving so it's obviosuly popular. A terrific wine and beer selection. Great for families I'd think.

We went for dinner on a busy Thursday night in town and it was fantastic. When we arrived there were no tables but our waitress promised us the next available table. We had not even ordered a drink when a table became available. Right next to the fireplace bonus!. My husband was undecided until he seen a Schnitzel Pamigiana leave... More
