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!

“Good value”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Excellent value for money meals at the Karridale. Very large servings and always delicious. Good outdoor seating area, protected from the weather in winter and with huge gas heaters.

“consistently good!”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Yes, although out of town, it is ideal for those staying at Hamelin Bay caravan park, Alexandra Bridge camping ground, Augusta and of ciurse, Karridale. The first 3 places are only 10 minutes drive away :) The food is consistently good, great value for money and friendly, efficient service. Well worth a visit

“This is a great country pub”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

The Karridale Tavern is a great spot to go for a meal, or to catch up with friends for a drink. The only bad thing about the place is that it's not part of a large town, so there always has to be a designated driver.
The meals are great, and very well priced. I have been here for lunch and dinner. The front bar is full of atmosphere, and the staff are always friendly. You never have to wait to be served for very long.
If you are eating with a larger group, there is a large undercover outdoor area.
If you are travelling to/from Augusta or Hamelin Bay, this Tavern is a great place to stop. The fuel is always cheaper than it is in Margaret River or Augusta, so that's another good reason to stop as well.

“Good pub meal”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

Good pub meal. Large serves. A friend had the special which was beef steak and scallops. He said that the scallops alone were worth the price of the meal, siting the garlic sauce as being delightful. I had Bronze whaler fish with chips. Also comes with a side salad. Two pieces of fish made it a good sized meal.

You have a choice of sitting inside or the covered alfresco area. If you are interested in local history, there are some great old photos on the wall of the dining room.
