Known to its many friends as ‘The Tav’, this restaurant and music venue is THE place to experience authentic Western Australian hospitality in the heart of the iconic Margaret River.
Built as a haven for surfers in the 1970s, it is now one of Australia’s must play live music venues and has won Best Entertainment Venue at the Australian Hospitality Awards three years running.
Don’t expect Green rooms and VIP areas here though. Whether you’re sitting in the cosy bistro, on the al fresco terrace or grabbing a drink in the buzzing sports bar, you can expect a relaxing and down to earth ambience that makes it a favourite with locals and visitors alike.
The menu focuses on pub classics such as burgers and parmas, American-style barbecue meats and market-fresh Aussie seafood. Oysters followed by halloumi salad is a satisfying option if you’re after something light, although we suspect you may struggle to resist the Texas-style beef brisket with mouth-watering mac’n’cheese and housemade pickles.
When you have many of Australia’s best winemakers living in the area it makes sense to have a locally-focused wine list. You can also get a taste of Margaret River on tap with their very own handcrafted Margaret River Ale Company ales, available exclusively to The Tav.
With gluten-free and kids menus also available, there really is something for everyone at Settlers Tavern!
