Live quite close but stopped using The Tavern due to the previous management. But now under new management and the place has improved tremendously. Really excellent meal, very friendly staff and I think that we will be making a habit of this. So definitely would recommend The Tav for an evening out. They do early bird specials also, will try...

I celebrated my birthday night in the tavern a few weeks ago. There were 12 of us and we pre-ordered our food. Some of my friends had never eaten in the tavern but everyone was really impressed with their meals, in fact everyone cleared their plates and everyone had a sweet. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming and kath and... More

I visited with my husband and teenage son. We all enjoyed the food, picking from both the standard menu, chicken Parmo and the specials board, pork belly. Good quality, large portions and tasty. The service was excellent and the welcome warm. Would highly recommend.

Haven't been here since the change of management , and I must say its very much improved . Service was good, food excellent nice friendly atmosphere, so different from what it used to be like. So as Sunday lunch's go I would put this now as a close number 2 in the Stockton general area. Well worth a visit ..

Visited for dinner as part of a larger party. Got the distinct impression that a group of women daring to chat was not to the liking of the men in the pub just having a pint, but what do they expect when the pub also serves food! Atmosphere was needless to say lacking. Service was so so, meals came out... More

I had prawn cocktail which... More
