Kingfisher Restaurant – Margaret River – Indian Restaurant
February 23, 2017 Restaurants bwd1

Rosie and I recently visited the new Indian restaurant situated under the Woolworths complex in Wilmott street, just up the hill from the Margaret River Hotel. The decor is very simple, bright and airy. The Indian music playing in the background was very Bollywood but not too intrusive. On the night we visited there were

Travelling with pets has become a more common trend in the Australian tourism market. It has always been popular in Europe and the USA.

Went to Teddis Big Spoon on Saturday night and had a really enjoyable experience. I really don’t know what Teddis means (my son had his own interpretation of the restaurant’s name) but in the end it didn’t matter.

I went to the Margaret River SHS ball last night which was held at Bowen and Sampson Brewery (the old Duckstien Brewery). The venue was beautiful. The table decorations fantastic.

A new distillery opened in Margaret River last year on the old veterinary site on the corner of Carters Rd and Bussell Highway. At the moment it seems to be a well kept secret serving $10 pints as well as their whiskeys and gin. We went there since the Brewhouse was too crowded and it
