Nice as always

They have a deal where you get a sandwich and soup for quite cheap! The staff and the food are always up to a good standard. We come here often and we have never had a bad word to say about it. We are locals and we would say it's in our top 5 for the area. Thank you!

We arrived at pub for a evening meal! Warm welcome and we all had different things off the menu! The chicken fajitas was the star of the meals. Good value for money and freshly cooked food and super choice. Well worth a visit.

The meal at The Tavern was just what we needed after a long days travelling. Despite it being very busy the staff were friendly and very attentive. The meals were good but by far the chocolate bread and butter pudding was the best. The only downside was that the salad with the Cajun chicken was mainly shredded lettuce. Otherwise a... More

Three of us are here on the 21st may after attempting to get to the top of Ben Nevis, we called in the night before and seeing how busy it was booked one of the booths. We arrived slightly early and the booth was empty whilst all the tables were full and people were waiting to be seated (so recommend... More

We had a nice diner here. We could pick our own table as it was not that busy, 15 min later the restaurant was full. Food was well prepared but not spectacular, service was ok.

Took my wife to the Tavern cafe bar for a birthday dinner. Excellent meal,staff friendly and efficient. Very busy on a Sunday night so maybe best to phone and book a table.

Good, tasty, pub style food - well cooked and presented. Choices of steak, chicken and seafood, plus more. Staff very friendly and upbeat. We went early and managed to get a table without booking. Prices seemed pretty reasonable to us and portions are generous.

We visited this place on Sunday for early dinner. From the menu which already looked somewhat average for pub food, no steak and no salmon available. I ordered Chicken ceasar salad as it is my "benchmark" dish when out of idea. It was not a bad choice but I had better. Kids Mac n cheese must be nice, my son... More

We had heard a lot of good things regarding this venue so we pre-booked a table as it was always very busy. Prices are reasonable and you get a decent portion for your money. The food was good, slightly disappointing that 3 of the main courses were served and almost completely eaten before the last main meal was served but... More
