Attended here 27/2/14 just after midday.

The venue is fantastic. It has a great outdoors area and plenty of undercover areas should the weather be wet.

The beers were nice and varied, priced from $4.5-$12 depending on size. Only downside was that two of their beers were unavailable as they were waiting for them to be shipped in from their cool room...pub with no beer much? Seriously though the other beers were great, really enjoyed them.

We were lucky in that the venue was quiet due to being mid week. Some great background music.

The food was a little pricey and not overly varied (chips, wraps and pizzas) we had the seafood pizza shared between two for $25 which was delicious.

As a couple in our late 20s with a 4 month old that we were able to have with us in a pram I would recommend this venue!

This review is a bit late as we visited last winter. A very nice place with a great menu and good beer.

Went here on a Saturday afternoon with my husband and two teenage children for a snack and a drink. My husband had the Indian Pale Ale and I had a different Pale Ale both were very enjoyable and well made. We had two pizzas, one seafood and one pepperoni to share these were nice but not the best pizzas we've had but were certainly not the worst. I do tend to agree with one of the recent reviews whilst the male staff were friendly and efficient one of the female staff walked around sour faced and certainly thought she was something special??? The atmosphere and setting were great and definitely worth a visit. Much better beer then some of the other breweries we tried whilst in Margaret River!

Overpriced beer, hard seats, staff that are more intent on their looks than their service. Not a bad outlook, but the food menu was basic at best and came out looking and tasting overcooked? That was not just ours, everyone's looked the same.

Went to the Settlers Tavern that evening, much better atmosphere, way, way better food, magnificent service and we didn't walk out feeling like we had been fleeced. Do yourself a favour, there are much better establishments than this one.

Firstly thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on your recent experience at the Brewery.

Whilst we strive to deliver with consistency and focus it would seem we have fallen short on this occasion.

Our team prides itself on taking any feedback as an honest snapshot and view results such as this as a positive tool so we may continue to develop and improve on expectation.

With this in mind I would like to extend an invitation to contact me initially via direct email as follows richard@colonialbrewingco.com.au or venue phone 08 97588177 I and the wider Brewery team would like to gain further insight and understanding into your disappointing visit.

kind regards

Richard Moroney.

A nice place to visit with or without the kids. We took the kids and they had some entertainment with a bubble blower for the kids and a musician for the adults. Nice playground and shady seating outside. Only issue is to be careful they had a chicken satay wrap advertised as the daily special when it arrived it was cold and tasted like fish, when I returned it they said they put fish sauce in it. This wasn't listed on the board with its other ingredients and it did not taste to good cold either. They did refund the meal
Apart from that it was a lovely afternoon with other families.
