No alterations allowed to menu including just not putting sauce on the burger.
When asked what the house salad was we were told it was just some lettuce and stuff.
Food was oily
Won’t be going back or recommending to anyone

Hello Gelder, Thanks for your comments, our house policy on modifications is stated on the menu. While mods may seem easy to accommodate, all of our food is prepared fresh to order - these requests compromise the efficiency of our small kitchen and cause delays to yours and other patron's orders. Our staff are always happy to suggest alternative menu items. Please accept our apologies that the staff member that served you wasn't fully briefed on the house salad of the day.

Had a great time. First visit to Colonial. Really good atmosphere, venue was impressive but sadly food was a bit disappointing. Drinks good and am sure it’s amazing in the summer. If they could improve the food this place would be a winner

We didn’t get the high table as requested and there were two tables free. They won’t alter meals (no mushroom or no chilli sauce on the pizza etc.) and we were put next to a large group party who were all standing up.

Perfect for families! So good! Golf and park a huge hit with our kids, even on a rainy day. Recommend sitting outside - inside tables miss out on the scenery.

Burgers were very disappointing. Chicken was plain and bland. Beef patty was tough and chewy. Much better should be expected from such a high price. Pizzas and chips were good and food was fast.

Food was good. No tea or coffee available. Long wait to queue to order food. Do not allow any menu variations, e.g.: you can't say you don't want sauce on your burger. Background music was quite loud.

Totally Overbooked, staff under pressure, Poor service, no food available, kitchen had to stop serving for an hour to catch up as wait for food was longer than 1.5hrs, we had to eat elsewhere, took 20mins to get a drink…terrible band and acoustics.
We usually enjoy this place for its relaxed family friendly vibe but not this time…it was a horrible experience

Enjoyed the ambience, sunshine and good open space for kids to run around. Didn’t feel busy (even though it was). Food was good, drinks nice. Good to have vegan cheese for pizzas and other vegan options (salad).

Went there just under two years ago What happened to the place they don’t even take cashanymore I understand about COVID issues but everywhere else in margs I have been to does terrible internet reception didn’t even have any of the lager available I understand it’s brewed in Melbs but come on and also there’s no goal post and balls for the kids to kick around all in all 3 out of 5 but has gone down hill since I’d been there 2 years ago

Hello Hayden, apologies if you found our cashless payments inconvenient - we are following best practice guidelines to prevent the spread of Covid and protect our patrons. We will return to cash payments in the near future. You are correct the mobile reception is terrible here due to limited coverage by the service providers. The footy goals have been replaced with Finska, Giant Jenga & Golf, but thanks for your feedback we will look at bringing the footy back next season. Cheers CBCo

Overall the place is beautiful. The location is stunning and quiet. The layout of the brewery caters for plenty of seating all of which get to soak in the beautiful view in which surrounds it. Staff are hands on and service is quick however a bit underwhelmed by the menu. It seems a bit confused and tasted pretty average.

Limited menu, especially for seafood and vegetarian options. Playground feels a bit tired. The Sunday roast they used to do a few years ago was so good - should be brought back

Colonial presented well, wood fires great on a cold night. Customer service and food were great. My cousin a Qantas pilot has been to a lot of venue and loved our night there.

Food and beer were very good. Ambience very typical to the Margaret River area and although the food was good, it was also very pricey.

Food was great but the order was wrong and didn’t get a detailed receipt to be able to check it. Cost $207 for five adult burgers and five kids meal then didn’t get one burger. The benches are narrow and I fell backwards then laid on the soggy ground in a white shirt!

Unfortunately this has gone down in value, service and quality since last year. They’ve tried to squash too many people in and the line for the food was heaps more than the many other lines that serve drinks only.

Had to wait 40 minutes after my husband and been served and eaten his pizza until by burger came. I queried a waiter who was walking around with a burger in her hand (not mine), then she cam back with my tepid burger.
I don’t know if they were short staffed but the line for ordering food took 15 minutes just to order food. Non of the staff looked happy to be there.
