Great tavern meal

This place is always busy, every night so get there before 6.30pm for quicker service and minimal queuing. Service is good and dinner can be eaten in or outdoors.

I live in Margaret River but never get tired of going to the "tav'". Consistently good food and the staff are friendly and accommodating. My boyfriend's steak was quite chewy for a medium rare.

Delicious meal. Prompt service with seating to our table. We then queued for a few minutes to place our order. The meal arrived promptly soon after. Definitely good value. Would recommend.

This was my fourth or fifth time eating here and every time I am never disappointed. The food is always good and there is plenty on tap and bottle also. Reasonably priced and the service is good. I'd score it 6/10.

I love this pub and will eat and drink here at least once every time I holiday in the Magaret River area. They regularly have good entertainment also.
