The Settlers’ Story

Settlers Tavern, or ‘The Tav’ as it’s affectionately referred to by locals, was built as a haven for Margaret River’s emerging surf culture in the 1970’s. Local legends now rub elbows with a widely eclectic mix of world class winemakers, winery crew, locals and their families and travellers from around the world.

Rob and Karen Gough have owned and run Settlers for the past 14 years. They thought that Margaret River was a very special place and have poured their passions for food, wine and music into the Tav, resulting in a swag of awards including AHA’s Best Regional Casual Pub Dining 2018 (Hall of Fame), Gourmet Traveller’s Best Wine List WA and Best Listing of WA Wines 2019, WA’s Wine List of the Year and Best Listing of a Region’s Wine 2018, Top 50 Places to Drink Wine Wineslinger Award 2019, Top 100 Bars Sunday Times, WA Awards of Excellence 2018/2019, Best Pub Restaurant Wine List (Hall of Fame) and Best Regional Hospitality Venue 2018/19 (Hall of Fame).

Offering great hospitality and a family friendly, the Tav offers a sporting bar, premium wine list with over 600 wines, beers on tap and an all day menu.

Passionate about ‘community’, Settlers supports local musicians, local schools and sporting clubs, numerous charities and is a sponsor of many worthwhile causes.

We are dedicated to being green and to minimising our carbon footprint. We believe we can make a difference by using bio-degradable and compostable straws, water cups and take-away coffee cups. We use 100% recycled paper for menus, bathroom paper and towels. We use bio-degradable garbage bags and we recycle cardboard and glass bottles into hired recycle bins. We re-use (up-cycle) wine bottles for the filtered water we serve in the restaurant, with water saving also a top priority for us. We are also dedicated being the best environmentally friendly venue, we can be.
