Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great atmosphere, great food and large portions. Variety of tap and bottle beer. Very busy so get there early. Recommend this pub for sure. Short drive from Augusta but well with it

Had a nice lunch time meal at Karridale tavern, with good service. We sat at the outside tables which we wiped down as it was covered in dirt as were the chairs. We decided not to look up as there were spider's and cobwebs everywhere.....the...place needed a good good clean and tidy up.More

We visited on New Year’s Eve for lunch without a booking and scored a free table, it was very very busy. The service was excellent and the staff were awesome. Once the food came out we were extremely impressed with the quality 😍 so tasty....Morale with staff we saw under pressure was good too with how busy it was. 100% recommend the Karridale Hotel.More

I ordered a Thai beef salad, after half the ingredients weren't in there I let the staff know. After the waitress looked at the menu to see what was in it (she should know) I was given some fetta cheese. I went back to let...them know there is also no pinenuts or cucumber and very little purple onion which now makes up for the most of a Thai beef salad. I was given my money back in a rudely manner, as the waitress took my plate back to the kitchen she flung my knife and fork across the bar. Wow very bad customer service, considering your meal u presented me was not even half of what was on your menuMore

Had the pork ribs and Asia Turf & Surf. The ribs were that slow cooked they were hard and dry. The Asian turf and surf. Just plan terrible. The "Chef" should be dismissed. Completely unbelievable that someone would let that out of the kitchen. Maybe...the owner is having an affair with the Chef's partner and the Chef is giving payback. The wait staff. Very prompt and friendly.More

Fortunate to call this place my local for a few weeks while I was working in the area. The Karridale Tavern has all the charm of a family operated business with the inclusion of locals and visitors alike. Every time I visited I was greeted...by friendly and knowledgeable staff, happy to have a joke and extremely accomodating to requests and questions. I tried a number of meals off the menu and was never disappointed with the taste, presentation and value for money. Hot tip, the chefs love a bit of pepper, so if you don’t or have a very low tolerance for spice enquire a little further into what meal you would like. Enjoyed a number of gluten free and vegetarian dishes with friends in a comfortable and inviting pub atmosphereMore

We used to go to the Karridale Tavern a lot but the food fell away badly in 2018, 2019 so we never went back. We tried them again on Monday of this week and the food was excellent. We had the steak and roast vegitables...and it was perfectly done so we will most certainly be going back. We have no hesitation in recommending it as a place to eat!!More

Visited in school hols for dinner on Wed night. Very busy. Unpretentious. Country vibe. Quickly found a table by friendly and lively landlord. Wait staff efficient. Had to ask for water but easy when I did. Steak special was fantastic. Great piece of steak. Could...have eaten more sides as so good (broccolini and garlic potatoes) Pizzas excellent but one black underneath- wood fired a bit too much? Still tasty. Nice relaxed vibe. Our new local. Will be back, many thanks.More
