whilst the food was of a good quality and the service was good, serving cold lamb on a sunday lunch spoilt the meal for me, others at the table had roast beef which they said was only just warm. Vegetables were hot but the lunch was not to my taste, I prefer my meat to be served hot.

We visited the tavern for a lovely sunday lunch and got just that. The staff were very nice, the prices were very reasonable, and it was a very fine establishment indeed. My opinion on this place couldn't be any better. Highly recommended :)

We had used the Tavern occasionally in the past but after we heard it had new owners we gave it another try. What a good thing we did!!!! Mal and Kath, the new owners and all the staff are so welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. The newly done beer garden is all enclosed and such a sun trap.... More

It's a long time since we last ate at the Tavern, but we thought we'd give it a go under the new management. The food was excellent. I had the beef and my wife had the lamb. Both were cooked fantastically well and the salt police hadn't stopped the chef from properly seasoning both. They kindly provided a child's portion... More

Very welcoming staff and a pleasant and helpful landlady. The food is excellent and attractively served, cooked by a chef who is not content to plod along but who provides interesting, not to say adventurous, dishes. I can honestly say that I have seldom enjoyed a meal as I enjoyed this one. One complaint.... it;s just too far from home... More

My friend and I went to the Tavern this evening for an early bird meal. A young couple greeted us and made us feel very welcome, nice banter. Great choice on menu, We did not have to wait long for our food, the presentation was excellent. Good portions. Have not been for a long time but will definitely be returning... More
