Good bar food

Personable service, good beers on tap, reasonably priced bar food, good family atmosphere. Nobody seemed able to access the free WIFI, but that was a minor point.

We all really enjoyed our meal at The Tavern last night, everything was well cooked and the staff were very friendly.

We turned up without a booking and were seated at a table at the side of the bar. Felt we were perhaps a bit overlooked due to this as not in the main seating area.
