With a new chef and owners in February, the tavern is serving some great food, the Porterhouse being a highlight and amongst the best I've had, medium rare of course :)

With new management, and a new chef, and a new menu, the Tavern has really impressed. All of our meals were absolutely faultless!! From the vindaloo to the garlic prawns, everyone was very happy with their selection. Definitely be back again.

I came with a group of 5, ordered the pasta of the day. The food came out and they had put it through as the vegetarian dish. I corrected them and they told me I had ordered that. I advised that no, I had ordered the pasta and they had entered it incorrectly. They went back and checked, came back... More

Had a really nice meal here tonight. My wife had the roast beef 'of the day' and I felt adventurous and went for the lambs fry. Both were served with normal veg, no horrible melted cheese on them, and I had mashed potato, with mine, roasties with the beef. A couple of drinks added and total was just over $40.... More

Travelling towards Victor harbor you will be able to stop for lunch at the Tavern. During the week there are specials for lunch and the meal is very good and plentiful. On Sunday the Roast special is great. Quiet place to relax with friends and enjoy a meal and a drink.

I was just another blow in from another country town, midway between where I live and new Adelaide. Most people just drive through on their way to somewhere else or pick up some supplies and keep going. My car needed a drive and so did I. Guess to get away from the winter hibernation on a sunny day. The local... More

Had a great Sunday lunchtime roast dinner, meat was tender and there was an excellent vegetable bar. Food was served promptly and hot by friendly staff. Very good value for $12 50. Will definitely stop there again on the trip to or from Victor Harbour.

We have been to Mt Compass Tavern on our way back to Victor and we are always met by friendly staff and the food on the specials board is extremely good. For $9.90 there are several choices or you can order from the main menu. A real country pub with all the charm of one and great meals you could... More

Quite a wide selection on menu and blackboard specials although these were quite pricey. Good food and good service.
