Description: 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 had been to the tavern a lot of times, enough times to recognise what their food should taste like, because I'd loved it. But when I had visited about 3 months ago I was not very pleased as the green curry I had ordered was not just very runny but tastes different and did not even taste like the... More

We were booked in at 7pm for a meal for 2. The restaurant was already busy. Had a large birthday party of around 15. It took at least 15 mins before we were asked what would we like to drink. Cut a long story short . It took far to long for each meal but when I asked was they... More

I travelled Thailand and South East Asia for 4 months, this place took me back in time. Pleasant experience, Veg was fresh and crunchy and as for lemongrass........ Lunch time bar menu a real bargain. So good, I'm going back with family tomorrow. Don't miss out folks!

We have eaten in here a lot and it has always been good. We decided to try a take away as the wife wanted to sit in front of the fire with pj's on, but what a mistake. Told 30 mins before food would be ready, got there in 20-25 and my order was sat on the side next to... More

Fantastic food and service. It's a shame that the bar downstairs is not more welcoming then you could probably have before and after dinner drinks.

Been to this restaurant lots of times and never been disappointed. The food is so nice and the chef will change the menu if asked. The staff are always friendly and helpful. It's my favourite restaurant in Wigan.

Use to go here all the time, great food and great prices for the lunch menu. Lunch menu use to be £8 for a 2 course meal and the hot wings were the best I've ever had so to the green curry. Now they have decided to raise the price of the 2 course menu to £12 and have removed... More

Thank you for talking time in giving us a review, however I think that this review is a bit unfair. Firstly we have had the special lunch offer for 3 years and was only available until 14:30pm, and we already had the Fixed Price menu for 11.95 available until 19:00pm with other meals options that other customers may like and...

This is probably a bit of a biased review as i'm not a big fan of thai & this restaurant didn't do much to convert me. The fish cakes were like ovals of rubber. The main course was ok but not brilliant. I had chicken on fire and the food came wrapped in foil shaped as a chicken with a... More

Came across this Thai restaurant in Wigan. From the outside it looked like an empty bar on the ground floor, with no real sign of life. We were surprised when inside that the restaurant was upstairs and looked quite nice. The staff were efficient and friendly. Never had a Thai curry before and chose a mild one. The meat dish... More

2nd visit to The Tavern, first in a group and second with OH. Food on both occasions was very good, very nice surroundings and extremely pleasant staff (nice smiles!). Would recommend for anyone looking for a change from Chinese - more flavoursome.
