“Dinner in Margaret River”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012

After 5, forget about anywhere else in Margaret River - too damn expensive and RUBBISH
The tavern offers good value and excellent food quality. The fish and chips is an excellent choice and it's so different because they use spanish mackerel. A meal with a glass of wine would set you back no more than $30 and in Margaret River - that's bloody cheap for good food

“Ok pub grub”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

But if in town you have to get yourself down to the Settlers for a weekend beer!

A mix of surfers, country kids, weekenders from Perth, tourists etc. If you do fancy a bite to eat its probably about as cheap as you are going to get in the region.

“Good start.... awful finish”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

The good:
- Kid friendly....others commented on problems which was not our experience at all.
- Settlers produce plate was a very tasty starter with what appeared to be some great local fare

The bad:
Ordered the Seafood Deluxe (platter). It was truly awful. Fish overcooked. Fried calamari undercooked.
The one thing I expect a tavern to be able to produce is good chips....they were soggy and bland.

I watched others plates come out which looked really good. That said I think I'll struggle to go back.
