We came for dinner, it was quite busy on a Friday evening. As it was still nice outside we choose a table there and queued to order drinks, a mixed starter plate and two steaks. Asked by the man behind the bar how we would like the steaks we ordered them medium-rare. All our food came together, not good, but... More

This place did not disappoint! By far the best pub food I've ever had and great service too. Also, a great view even though it's not on the Main Street across from thour beach. Great food, great service, great pricing and a great view!

Order 3 steaks, well done, medium & medium-rare. May as well ordered gristle. All terrible. Salad was a small lettuce leaf 1/4 of a tomato with a bit of grated carrot. NO dressing. Chips well say no more. Could not give it any compliments at all. However told the waitress and received a full refund. 5 stars for that.

Went to the tavern with family after a long drive and walks in Kalbarri. Tavern is situated off the road in a small shopping centre and consists of a bar and indoor or outdoor dining. The menu has all the favorites and can be ordered from the bar. The meals came out quickly and were massive. All were tasty and... More

We are here a couple of nights during our stay and both times the food came out fresh and quick - very generous portions and good prices! The parmigiana was delicious and we are fussy when it comes to those... the side salad was yummy and presented pretty on the plate - could do with being tossed in that yummy... More

This is a tidy nice and friendly country pub. The food is good. Typical pub-grub but not disappointing. Easy, nice, relaxed ! Nothing to whinge about at all.

Excellent friendly staff. Awesome band and good variety of locals and tourists. Great drinks, everything reasonably priced. I lost my ring there, called in the next day to which they had it behind the bar for me, thank you for your honesty. Would definitely go back.

Had a meal when the power was out all over Kalbarri (the Tavern has its own generator). We all opted for the fish and chips - which were well cooked and ate very well. One of us had room for a pudding (don't ask, it must be the hollow legs!) - a surprisingly extensive list available, including pecan pie with... More

Dropped in for lunch and a cold drink and I must say the meals are very good, slightly to big but that's my only complaint. Typical pub fare at very good prices. Well done.
