Sunday late lunch

This pub was recommended by one of my relatives and was a last minute call to see if they had room at the inn as the weather was awful and we were in need of sustenance, warmth and a roof over our heads. We managed to get in at 3pm on Sunday which was the last possible minute for food,... read more

We had a good night out in a group for a birthday dinner. Fun evening, plenty of choice for a big varied group, everyone was happy. A great choice for a meal out with friends.

We recently had a meal here and the food is very good quality. It is usually very busy so I advise booking first. The choices are quite good and the portions sizes are good. Would definitely go back!

Ate here on Thursday and not disappointed. Food is always good and very tasty. I had a rump steak, which was perfectly cooked medium rare and was delicious, lovely and soft, melt in the mouth. I asked for a side salad incpstead of their fantastic chips as I'm on a diet and they were fine with that, a lovely well-dressed... More

We had a superb lunch at The Taverners today. We were so looking forward to eating at there and you did not disappoint. The staff are friendly and almost act as if they know you (the first drink I ordered was a Bloody Mary and I was allowed to add most of the ingredients myself so it was to my... More

We always make sure we visit here for a pint and a bite to eat when we are over on holiday. A wonderful place serving top quality food. People having to wait for tables during busy times totally reflects just how good a place this is. Great deli at the back as well !

We walked to Godshill from Shanklin on our recent holiday, 4 grown ups and 8 kids ranging from 5 to 17 and ended up at the Taverners. The younger children played in the garden and us grown ups sampled the beer. Their own Taverners Ale was fab, and definitely worth a try. We then ate, the food was superb. My... More

It was a delicious lunch for everyone, catering well for children as well as adults. Chips were yummy! Kids portions were well-sized.

Excellent food and lovely decor. The shop at the rear of the pub is well worth a visit too. Try the pie you won't have had better, ever!

I lived in Godshill for more than five years and have visited The Taverners on a number of occasions, not only for a drink but also for meals. I cannot fault anything, food is to die for, and my plates and dishes are always 'clean' when I've finished. Roger and Lisa are a real delight, always friendly and pleasant even... More
