This superstar list continues at pace. A remarkable offering for a regional pub, let alone a restaurant anywhere in Australia. Proprietors Karen and Rob Gough are dedicated to not only supporting their local wine region, Margaret River, but unearthing and fostering new talent, discovering and promoting under-the-radar producers and broadening horizons of patrons. There are mature wines from the bulging Settlers Tavern cellar regularly updating the list and, of course, gems from Western Australia feature heavily here. The Goughs have long supported the fine wines under the banner of natural wine, so you’ll find rarities from Savoie’s Domaine Belluard, southern German pinot star Ziereisen or Jura rising star Tony Bornard. Of course, ‘You Have Now Entered Margaret River Cab Country’ gives way to a triumphant, and carefully-curated collection of the finest of local reds. Some 600 wines later and you’ve seen one of the most legendary living lists in the country.
