The brisket is advertised as one of their "signature dishes" Forget it! I had enough fat rind to fill a good sized teacup. What I had left to eat wasn't enough to fill my palm Management regretted my experience but suggested that lots of people ate it. They will recall my reply that " they are all going to die"... More

This seems to be the place where the locals eat, so you can't go too wrong there. Had lunch there and were quite impressed. The staff deserve a good thumbs up for their great friendly service. We decided to have dinner there and were surprised at the number of people in the place on a Thursday night. We were just... More

We have eaten here many times in the past and been happy with everything. Unfortunately our last visit was quite disappointing. Yes the service is very quick and we did not have to wait too long for a table. However the steak was tough and the food was cold. The tavern was full and the turnover would have been very... More

Awesome menu with all the pub classics. A big meal at the end of a big day in the break. Lamb curry is a winner.

The Tavern is split inside into dining/sports areas (although you can still keep tabs on your favoured game on the displays in the dining area) and two outside areas, the front perfect for watching the world go by on the Margaret River main street...

We went here for dinner one night and had a really good steak. We went there again but was disappointed with the meals we chose, quite basic food. I think if you stick to the steak, you will not be disappointed. Just to need to bear in mind that the kitchen closes quite early.
