We started our meal with a serve of garlic bread, which was four large slices - my friend ate one before I photographed it!

On this occasion I chose the ribs which were pork - I do not generally eat meat, however I could not resist this as I remembered how good ribs can be from when I used to eat meat. It was a half rack of BBQ ribs in a spicy sauce, served with beer battered chips and a small salad.
Juicy, tender ribs
These were absolutely delightful, with meat that just "peeled" off the bone. The meat was so tender, and because of the way it was cooked, there was no meat left on the bones, and you did not even have to pick the bones up with fingers!
My friend had the garlic prawns with optional chilli and you can get this as an entree for $18 or a main for $29. It was seared in garlic, parsley and finished with a white wine, cream sauce, and served with steamed rice.
The manager, James, explained that the ribs are always popular as are the lamb shanks, and the prawns.

The meals were not huge, however plenty big enough, and they also had some special desserts.
Neither of us could fit dessert in, (next time I would skip the garlic bread and have dessert instead) or rather, we felt we had had enough, however the general dessert display was difficult not to try as they looked so good!

The Seven Mile Inn Tavern has a Thirsty Camel bottle-shop attached to it and there is plenty of off street parking in this small shopping centre which is situated at 501 Wanneroo Road, Balcatta.
The place itself is comfortable, very large, and you have to go to the counter to order - whilst there you can see into the kitchen which is something I always like the idea of.
It was also not as noisy as many other restaurants, although it was probably not even half full on the day we went.
What a great find this Tavern was - a pleasant meal, enjoyed by both of us, and a place that I would go to again. I would probably go for lunch again, as I would imagine it would get very crowded and noisy at night. Of course, any manner of drinks can be bought here also.
