“Fun atmosphere with great patio”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2013

I ate here several nights and found the experience wonderful... The outdoor patio has heaters and is covered. Beer and wine selection is super and I loved the salmon. This is how it works: you go to the bar and purchase a beer, which you take with you. Then you stand in line to order food, which Is brought to your table. You go back to the bar to fetch another drink. I met many locals and had fun.

This place has it all. Good atmosphere, great food, awesome lineup of live music regularly and there's pool tables and beer gardens too. You get a ten out of ten Settlers Tav!

“Busy but good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2013

This Tavern was exceptionally busy (which is a good sign) and we had quite a good meal here. Lots of choices on the menu and the staff were very attentive and efficient. The wood fire was going when we visited as we were there on a cold rainy night. That added to the lovely atmosphere. Apart from the crowds of people and being quite noisy this place is recommended for a tasty meal.

“Give it a miss!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2013 via mobile

Went there today with a friend for a meal, is a nice looking pub and the atmosphere is nice and it's on a good location and the staff on the floor are very helpful to, however the food was that we chose was disgraceful, only went for a chicken burger meal and a fish burger meal, so dint go all out but still.......it was very bland and tasted like it had been cooked along time ago and just reheated. The guy at the bar was a miserable [--] to and dint even wana be there or be of any help to me when enquiring about all the differnt beers on tap, which is a shame as I would have liked to have tried more but he put me of, so we dint stay long and I won't be going back there either! Very disappointed.

Dear ch3lsea,

Thank you for stopping by Settlers Tavern. We are very sorry to read of your disappointing experience and can only apologize for what sounds like an unfortunate series of mistakes.

We go out of our way to source great produce, free range chicken, fresh local fish, custom baked bread, and we have a passionate team of chefs who work hard to prepare delicious meals that are cooked to order.

We stand behind what we do 100% and if we make a mistake, we are always keen to fix it. In your case, your meals should have been replaced if you were unhappy with them.

I am very surprised and disappointed to read about the guy at the bar you described as miserable. This is highly unusual and certainly unacceptable in our business. In any case, thank you for bringing your experience to our attention.

I highly recommend you give Settlers Tavern another try sometime and experience the great hospitality that is our usual standard.

Thanks again.
