This is a place where the food is original, fresh and seasonal and made with care which means it is absolutely delicious. Don't miss the pies but really you can't go wrong. And wonderful pub atmosphere. Just great!

We ate here twice during our recent holiday on the Isle of Wight and on both occassions were mightily impressed. The service was excellent, the food was delicious and the staff very friendly. This is a real gem of a pub/restaurant and you really get the feel that they are determined to provide a quality experience for dinners. We ate... More

Lovely atmosphere, a really good menu and daily specials. I would recommend the cheese platter, good local cheese. But all the food coming from the kitchen looked scrummy, would recommend this as place to eat or just have a pint.

Post a dawdle round the Godshill Model Village, The Taverners proved a perfect lunchtime stop off for my family and I. I had the ploughman's served with a mini bowl of delicious Potato, Stilton and Spinach soup. Sandwiches were delicious. Taverners own brewed ale was a great accompaniment. The staff were friendly and helpful. The little shop at the back... More

Having dined here twice & thoroughly enjoyed both visits felt I should leave a review. The food isn't complicated or fussy, but it's cooked to perfection bringing out real honest flavours. Seems they try to use local produce as much as they can & I always recommend friends try it for themselves.
