Been coming to Margaret River for years and we always eat at Settlers Tavern on our first night in town. Never fails to deliver! You get exactly what you pay for. Good, simple, plentiful, well-priced food in a comfortable environment, served by friendly, smiling staff. Great selection of local and international beers and wines, music was what is should be,...

We ate here on a chilly Monday night and the place was almost full. I ordered the lamb shank and my husband had sausages with onion gravy. Both meals were a good size and well prepared. You have to order your food at one counter and then your drinks at another counter. We finished our pre-dinner drinks and my husband... More

Most eating places in WA close early so we were lucky to get a meal here. The food was good and wholesome pub grub and service was also friendly and efficient. The chargrilled beef rib that my male friend had was particularly delicious, he said. Overall the four of us were very impressed. Their wine list runs to an impressive... More

We went for a late dinner bite and two of us ordered the American Style Slow Cooked Beef Rib w/ chipotle BBQ sauce, mac'n'cheese, tangy coleslaw and jalapeño corn bread. When it came out I thought, hmmmmm not many ribs, and in fact it was actually one big fat rib, but boy oh boy it was amazing and more than... More

We joined a crowd on a Friday night and enjoyed so much we went back on another day. Hubby liked the vast beer choices and the bartender was willing to make a shandie with ginger ale for me even though he hasn't heard of that before. The one man singer was entertaining and the crowd was appreciative of his efforts.... More

Loved this place! Saw some amazing musicians here as well as having a few delicious wines and some yummy bbq from their smoker outside. Really cool venue and management are lovely, there was an issue with my order being wrong and he replaced it asap. All in all great night, great atmosphere.

A proper pub with restaurant too. Extensive choice of beers on tap to suit everyone. Big outside seating area (smoking and non smoking areas). On the main road in middle of Margaret River. Live music and pool tables.

After settling down for a counter lunch, my husband realised he'd visited this pub 30 years ago - and he reckoned the music hadn't changed: a selection of Beatles, The Police, Rod Stewart and Pete Gabriel - nothing to complain about here! We were seated in the vine-covered rear garden, by a staff member who was fabulously-helpful with advice on... More
