Want to treat the family to a meal but worried whether the kids will sit still long enough to enjoy a beer? Tired of the old nuggets and chips kids menu? Looking for a laid-back atmosphere with affordable meal options? If you said ‘yes’ to one or more of these questions, then keep reading.

The Settlers Tavern offers families a casual dining experience in the North-East suburbs of Adelaide. Much loved by locals, the huge bistro area serves both lunch and dinner, and by the number of parents with young children that poured through those doors on the night we visited, it’s evident that it’s a popular choice for families.

The feature most youngsters are drawn to first, the indoor playground. Complete with a tunnel slide, naughts and crosses, and little hiding nooks, I guarantee this is where they’ll want to play. It’s tucked away at the back end of the room and I’d recommend booking a table close by if dining with kids. Next to the playground, you’ll find everyone’s favourite, the chocolate machine, so bring some coins along too.

Recently the Settlers devised a new kids menu and let me just say, they’ve hit the nail on the head here. Even though it may seem like your typical kid’s menu, the meals that are presented are anything but. Think a ham and pineapple pizza-shaped as a star, a classic cheese toastie with a rainbow filling, a hamburger with a bun that is black or, you better believe it…pink – what a hoot! Did I mention, it’s only $10.90?! OR even better… Monday nights, KIDS EAT FREE!!

Adults, don’t despair, The Settlers also dishes out some pub classics and if you get there on a Wednesday night they have $10 schnitzel night. Every week the toppings change and the options include a staff pick, of which a different staff member chooses their favourite toppings and it’s added to the schnitty menu. So cool!

If you’ve got a baby in tow there’s change facilities, plenty of room for prams/ strollers and high chairs for the toddlers. This is one place you can go without worrying about the kids getting bored. The vibe is super cruisy and I for one, loved that I didn’t feel judged when my kids threw a massive tantrum. It’s the little things.

  • If you have ever explored Innes National Park, right down the bottom of the Yorke Peninsula, you would have driven past the Marion Bay Tavern. Might not look like a lot from the outside as you drive past (it is literally a minutes drive from the entry to the National Park), but this is a real hidden gem with spectacular views, incredible pizza and a really lovely place to take the kids. When we decided to spend the weekend exploring the deep south of 'The Leg', a lunch at Marion Bay was the first thing we locked in. The pizza here is quite honestly, some of the best we have had in ages. Anywhere. Even back in the city. It is just that good. Cooked in their unique corrugated iron pizza oven, it really is quite the pizza experience. Obviously being a fishing town, the local seafood produce is just spot on, so during our visit the Seafood Basket had to get a run and we loved it. To be honest, there are some regrets we didn't have a go at their famous Marion Bay Oscar, a 300g Scotch Fillet steak but that will have to wait til next time.…
