Description: Swings Taphouse is a home away from home. Casual yet welcoming and incredibly professional. We have created a comfortable, casual and quirky space, filled with music with a beat, open fires, big open doors, balcony's, quiet corners and big open tables. A place where everyone can feel at home, a place where you will walk in and be meet with smiles, and enveloped in a welcoming energy. We are an incredibly versatile venue and cater for all...large groups can enjoy craft beers, wines and shared casual dining on the balcony or on our big tables, families are welcomed and are always catered for, we have quiet candlelight corners for romantic dinners, corporate groups can feel confident bringing clients to a place where they can relax and enjoy the essence of Margaret River hospitality. Our food is authentic and approachable..deceivingly simple and loaded with delicious flavours with the added attention to detail. We source our ingredients locally and are driven by the seasons. Our staff are another layer of comfort, handpicked for the ability to care for other humans and their depth of knowledge and skill in the hospitality industry, we all want to be here and are here to look after you... Our wine selection is second to none in Margaret River, from ready to drink now 'Wine on Tap' to premium range from our Vineyard Swings & Roundabout's to other great local and international wineries...not to mention our underground cellar packed to the ceiling with some of Australia's best wines and vintages. We pride ourselves in our craft beer selection and our taps are always rotating for the best customer experience. We create a small selection of delicious and ingenious cocktails which rotates with the seasons. We always suggest booking to avoid disappointment especially for large groups and on weekends.

We decided we would like pizza for dinner and asked a local for a recommendation. He recommended Swings and we checked it out on TripAdvisor. A great choice. Very friendly and helpful wait staff. We decided to follow her recommendation and order several items to share among the four of us. I know this will sound really strange but it was all good and we agreed it was a most fun meal. Started with pizza, followed by an octopus dish, then a duck pate. A really weird combination-right? We aren't done yet. For desert we had apple tart with ice cream. This was probably the most unusual meal I have had but I am glad we did it because it was all good and a lot of fun.

The restaurant (was originally the Winos restaurant /building in Margaret River) staff/service and food were all good, however, some of the tapas plates are very expensive and not much more than a spoonful each between three people. For example: The Duck and also the Bouillabaisse around $28.00 a serve. The pizza was okay at $24.00, at least we all got two slices.

Enjoyed the meal - everything from the carafe of cab merlo served off the tap to the great tapas and pizza. Really good service despite a full house. Highly recommend!

Have now been to Swings a couple of times since it opened and haven't been disappointed. The previous incarnation (Winos) was great too but it didn't open till 3.00pm which didn't help us whenever in town doing the shopping and wanting something a bit different with a wine at lunch time.
The wine on tap is something different and a bit of fun and their wine list if good also.
Will have to give it a try for dinner etc when we've got friends down next - not just for a shopping pick-me-up!

Excellent place for dinner. Nice ambiance, great food and large drink menu. They have a winery offsite and serve their wines by tap. Tapas plates are small though. Stick to the excellent pizzas for value. The wings was 4 wings only.
