According to Fodor’s Travel Guide to Australia 2015, “Sometimes you don’t need to dab foams and wipe purees across the plate to impress. Sometimes you just have to serve up consistently good, hearty fare that fills the belly and doesn’t burn a hole in your pocket. That’s the reliable party trick at Settlers Tavern…. The crowds are a testament to the fact that the pubs got the formula right… The lack of pretension and warm vibe seal the deal…”

WINES are a big part of the region and Settlers eclectic wine list. From local to esoteric and harder to find wines - some of these wines are never seen in WA, and are also available at cellar door prices for takeaway. Settlers specializes in selecting a special bottle of wine for dining in-house or for taking out to one of the neighbouring BYOs.

LOCAL BREWED CRAFT BEER. Settlers Tavern is home to the Margaret River Ale Company (MR Ale Co). MR Ale Co is a ‘micro-garage’ brewery in Margaret River's light industrial area, brewing four styles of beer.

I've been coming back to Settlers consistently every time I'm in Margaret River for at least 5 years. Whether with family, friends or alone it is the perfect place to have a meal and drink in town.The atmosphere is fantastic (especially if the Scorchers are playing!) A friendly, relaxed and casual vibe that welcomes anyone.The food is absolutely amazing quality and comes in great portions for a really good price. Not only that but the service is incredibly fast and the staff are super friendly and there's always a familiar face even if you come back a year later.11/10 ; The best meal in Margaret River!

Haven't eaten here yet but the staff are friendly and there's a great vibe. When everywhere else in town is shut you can go to Settlers for a good night out. Great beers and wines.

Food quite nice. Reasonable prices. Service fantastic. The girl on the door, Asher(?) I think she was called & the lady who brought the meal out both lovely. The girl who helped us choose our table was outstanding.

Can't fault it. Variously a cracking regional boozer, yet with an exemplary wine list covering both near and far. Beer ranges from regional/state staples with crafty offerings from further afield.That it's also a regional draw for touring bands only adds to the appeal. Oh, and consider the regular entertainment on the deck and you might never wish to leave.
