Description: 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!

Reviewed May 22, 2012

We have been going to Hamelin Bay twice yearly for about 5 years. Unfortunatly over this time the Karridale has gone down hill and the food especially. Very sad as it was once the highlight of our trip.
