The Settler’s Tavern, part of the umbrella of Laundy Hotels is located in West Gosford and is in a business and urban area, visited by plenty of locals keen for a good pub feed and enjoying a catch up with mates.
It’s a spacious pub with a large indoor dining area and bistro, outdoor beer garden and TAB facilities. It’s recently seen renovations with leather couches, hip stylish cushions and there’s soon to be a kids outdoor area.
We enjoyed lunch in the bistro and found the menu to have a good range of entrees, burgers, pizza, salad and sides. Fully stocked bar for your selection of beers, wines and spirits makes for a perfect pub visit.
The Szechuan Pepper Squid the ideal stater, the squid is light and tender, with a slightly crisp batter, the dish nicely seasoned with Szechuan Chilli and coriander, this also comes with aioli and a lemon wedge which add even more flavour.
They also have lunch and dinner specials highlighted on the board. We were impressed with the lunch special, a steamed barramundi parcel, flavoured with lemon and chili and it was cooked perfectly. It was served with green beans and crispy chat potatoes. A generous serve and something we think would be a perfect regular addition to their regular menu.
We also loved their house crumbed buttermilk chicken schnitzel and you can select a few different toppings. We opted for the Parmigana, the schnitty affectionately known as a Parmi, everyone’s favourite. The Settlers version was a solid portion of succulent juicy fried chicken, topped with a tasty Napoli style sauce which was covered with melted mozzarella cheese. This was a quality pub feed indeed. This, and all schnitzels come served with your choice of chips & salad or seasonal veg & garlic mashed potato.
As a side we shared a salad – the Warm Pumpkin, Fetta & toasted Walnut Salad – complete with baby spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, avocado, dukkha, tossed in garlic vinaigrette. This is a gluten free and vegan dish but you can add chicken or squid to it. The flavours on this were lovely and it was presented well too.
Jarrod in the kitchen, and the other staff were extremely warm, welcoming and efficient and we appreciate the hospitality.
