My wife and I stopped at the Tavern for coffee and cake. The cake was fresh, the tea and coffee hot, the service friendly and fast. The tables were set in a light bright area with floor to ceiling windows looking out over a wooded hillside. I would definitely come back here again!

We ordered the schnitzels as we had heard great things and wanted to see just how big they were. Well they were huge, but tasted awful. Vinegary and sour. Disappointing as we live locally and wanted this to be our local pub. Won't be back.

Nice pub and fabulously friendly service. Food was perfect too. We drove from Kingston Beach back around toward Hobart so it was a terrific place to break for lunch.

Service was good; the soup and hot bread was perfect after being cold up at Mt Wellington. Lovely young lady served us. Would stop by again.

I am a regular patron here and must give the Fern Tree Tavern all the ticks. Great atmosphere (especially during Winter with the open fire), excellent service and good value meals. Highly recommend.

Fern Tree Tavern is a great place to visit for a coffee, drink or a meal after a walk on the wonderful Mt Wellington.
