We were a party of two adults and seven children, which included a vegan, a vegetarian and a coeliac. We were impressed that everyone could be catered for. Service was so quick too. Large portions and everyone was happy. Thank you.

Unfortunately my meal was not good! Lamb shank was mostly bone and what meat there was, was tough and flavourless. The mash was nice and the other veggies i.e. carrots, cauliflower and broccoli were mostly raw. So disappointing.

Remember to book to get an indoor table (handy on a cold winter night). Staff were great, food servings large - which suited teenagers well!

We have free to air tv, I was unable to find a channel that televises the game - it looks like this is only available on foxtel. Sorry. The Kalbarri Hotel has foxtel, perhaps they are televising the game.

Great Service, Great Food and Great Value. Family Friendly Tavern with stunning views from our verandahs. We are owner / operators of a small business and work very hard to provide a personal and positive experience for our customers. We like to think we do this well, but we do get it wrong every once in a while. If you have a problem with our service, please approach any of the staff, you can be assured we will deal with any problem quickly and efficiently.
