“Terrible overpriced food but good atmosphere”
Reviewed October 14, 2012 via mobile

A great place for a drink but the food is dismal. I had the burger royal and the bun was stale, the meat chewy combined with limp lettuce and gooey cheese- for $24!

settlers1, Owner at Settlers Tavern, responded to this review, October 14, 2012
Many thanks for letting us know you were unhappy with your meal at Settlers Tavern. We take all feedback seriously and are particularly concerned by your comment that the food was "dismal, terrible and overpriced". I understand from your comments that you are specifically refering to the Burger Royale. We are generally well regarded for our good value, and work very hard to prepare our food with care, using quality ingredients. I agree that $24 would be "overpriced" for our Burger Royale, but fortunately the information you have provided is not accurate. Our "Royale", which is 200 grams of Western Australian Black Angus beef with bacon, melted cheddar cheese, fries and salad is on our menu for $19 (not $24). I'm also sorry to hear that your burger bun was stale. Fresh bread is essential for burgers and all of our buns are freshly baked every single day of the week, without exception. In any case, we sincerely apologise for your unfortunate experience and hope you will give us another shot. We acknowledge that we sometimes make mistakes; but we always endeavour to make good on our commitment to good hospitality. We would normally replace a meal, or offer a refund on the spot when someone is unhappy with their food at Settlers Tavern. Should you return to Settlers Tavern please do not hesitate to let us know if something is not right. We hope to see you again.
