Description: Rich in its Eastern references, The Tavern Bar and Thai Restaurant offers...
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.

Gorgeous food and great service

I dined here with my husband recently and we both chose dishes from the £11.95 early evening menu which is available until 7pm. The chicken satay and beef salad starters were both delicious. The main courses of chicken with cashew nuts and beef with oyster sauce were equally tasty and authentically... read more

I've always been a little apprehensive when it comes to trying Thai food as I always imagined it to be sweet which I'm not a fan of (and I was so wrong, I had to have 3 glasses of water!). My boyfriend twisted my arm and finally got me in the tavern and we both had Thai green curry with... More

Incredible food. Hidden gem in the centre of Wigan. Delighted to find such a magnificent authentic restaurant. Service was spot on and treated a party of 10 like royalty. Thank you again.

My husband and I visited for our Anniversary. We both agreed the food and service were fantastic. We enjoyed every bite of our starters and mains, all were cooked very well and tasted delicious, it left us wanting more. The staff were very polite and frendly and the service was just right even though the restaurant was busy. Fantastic night,... More

You only get one chance to make a good first impression and the new management scored a fail. Chicken wings and kebabs in a vegetarian set menu? I was offered a replacement when I complained. I've had problems with incorrect items in take away from here previously, things don't appear to have improved. The rest of the food was ok... More

Very good food. A little pricey but worth it. Service was good but not exceptional. Food took quite a while to be prepared but they were fairly busy for a Thursday night. Overall a good experience.

This restaurant is now called "Thai Corner". 2 half floors and one whole floor above the tavern on Mesnes. 1. VENUE. Interior is darkish, yellow lighting, all wood. There are lots of tables though. Probably not the best ambiance for bringing kids. But good for adult family, group of friends, etc. 2. MENU & PRICES. Menu has a good selection... More
