Our meal in this tavern in the tiny hamlet of Karridale was surprisingly good. My husband ordered fish of the day, and I had salt and pepper squid. Both were served on generous beds of delicious, fresh salads. Both meals were delicious. Great atmosphere.

We visited Karridale Tav as part of a weekend away. We ate at the restaurant on a busy Saturday night and we were far from disappointed. All 3 of us got bangers and mash and loved it. The food was quick, the staff were pleasant and the place had a lovely feel to it. We would all return here without... More

After a couple of average meals over the past few months, today's lunch was back to the Karridale standard of a great pub meal at a good price. Chicken and bacon wrap was huge, and very tasty. Scotch filet was cooked to perfection and very tasty. Thanks guys n girls.

Have called in for a meal and a cold beer many times on my way to Augusta and am always impressed with the food here. Fish and chips or one of their famous Burgers are my choice but they have an extensive list of both Bar Grub or you can sit down and dine. Service is good and a pleasant... More

After calling and making enquiries about the suitability for our family after the Leeuwin Lighthouse Visit, we with or 3 kids went for lunch, the single piece of fish in the kids fish and chips meal was no longer than a mars bar and half the thickness, the party pie option was better, but hardly exciting, especially as all kids...

Had lunch here with the family on a Sunday afternoon. Meals were of good quality & everyone was satisfied. Only thing was that some meals came out a lot faster than others, with some having finished their lunch by the time others even received anything.

We stopped here after visiting Cape Leeuwin. Definitely a local pub (a dog was tied up to a ute outside), with good country style meals. Well priced with good service.

15 kms north of Augusta at the junction of the Brockman Highway and Bussell Highway and situated on the road to Hamelin Bay is a very comprehensive Roadhouse and Tavern. The building is in the Australian Veranda Style made with local wood. The Tavern is situated behind the Roadhouse section with ample parking for not only cars but trucks and vehicles with something in tow. The roadhouse is in an isolated location but has very conceivable item that a traveller with a family may need from nappies, formula and dummies to lipstick and Mylanta! They have the full range of fuel types and spare parts. The Roadhouse takes a large range of Cards including Motorcharge and Amex. The food is made fresh each day and is of excellent quality and variation They also have many staples from local suppliers and great bread from the Augusta Bakery. I dined at the Tavern one week ago and have to report on my excellent experience. We were greeted by friendly staff and we quickly picked from the daily specials our meals.whilst we were waiting for our meals a family with numerous children came in and the staff quickly gave them pencils,paper and a games box which worked a treat. The staff bent over backwards to help with a high chair, heat up the milk and food prepared by the mother and generally made the large family feel very welcome and right at home, my sisters and I were so impressed by the level of service.Our meals arrived quickly and what a treat we had not only was they ample serves on HEATED plates but the quality was outstanding and delicious. We could not fault the service and gave the place a 10 out of 10.An unexpected and memorable dinner in such an isolated place...the secret is now out!
