Rich in its Eastern references, The Tavern Bar and Thai Restaurant offers Wigan���s diners a sumptuous dining experience with a strong Thai feel. Passers by may mistake The Tavern to be just another high-end pub but stepping inside this old Victorian drinking establishment, you���ll discover an exciting fusion of East and West, the antique wood carved bar surrounded by high tables and stools yet lit by printed silk lamps and dotted with pretty pink orchids. Through to the expansive dining room, The Tavern becomes increasingly sophisticated with a romantic atmosphere. The space is surrounded by beautiful Thai artefacts and yet more plants, the lighting low and warm and tables generously spaced. As well as the traditional dishes Thai restaurants are known for, The Tavern���s talented kitchen offers a fine selection of its own creative takes on South East Asian cuisine, using authentic ingredients such as lemongrass, galangal and coconut milk, flown in direct from Thailand weekly, to evoke the traditional flavour of Thai cookery.

I have been to this restaurant numerous times in the past and have always enjoyed it. We haven't been in around 18 months, so my husband booked for my birthday for us and our teenage daughters. The food was very disappointing. Gone are the traditional carved vegetable decorations on your starters, they have been replaced with an 'english' side salad.... More

This is Thai food and I was absolutely spoilt for choice with the extensive menu. Every dish we ordered was piping hot and zinging with fresh spices. A great experience all round.

Was looking forward to a good meal , as we have had on several occasions previously at this restaurant. Nine of us went as a birthday celebration. Our table was booked for around 8 pm. The drinks service was fine but taking of the food order was very slow. Starters arrived much later by which time we were all very... More

Expect to wait for drinks and orders! Don't expect a smile! A Shame really as food was nice, tasty and fresh. Other tables food was getting mixed up! Service needs addressing in the restaurant and the bar especially the girl with a terrible attitude downstairs!

Visited here for a meal with family, the restaurant is lovely decorated inside and very authentic. Food was very nice, freshly cooked with great flavours and very reasonable price. starter, main and drink for under £25 each. Only downfall I could mention is we was waiting a while for our food and for our order to be taken but this... More
