Each pub has a signature dish that locals insist stay on the menu and at The Common it’s the Pounder Burger. Other stand–out dishes include Blackened Crispy Skin Barramundi with coconut rice and pineapple salsa, Grass Fed New York Striploin, and their ‘Parmagheddon’. It’s an ideal spot to refuel after a morning surf.
The River pushes the boundaries beyond pub lunch classics, and is a go-to for locals wanting a tasty meal in a relaxed setting. The ubiquitous fish and chips and burger sit alongside Satay Margaret River Lupin Tempeh, Caramelised Brussel Sprouts and Thai Crispy Fish Salad, plus there’s a great range of drinks and more than 40 gins available. The River delivers for its cosy ambience, friendly service and stand-out menu.
For friendly, relaxed service, reasonable prices and a delectable array of seafood try Clancy’s Dunsborough. Favourite lunch options include Fish & Chips, Chilli Mussels and the Seafood Platter which changes seasonally. There’s always a Fish of the Day and plenty of specials, plus 24 craft beer taps. With plenty of dining space bookings aren’t essential, but are welcome.
