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.

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

This was my third visit to the tavern. The first two times were earlier in 2014 and the food was absolutely delicious, however I was really disappointed this time. There seemed to have been a complete change to the menu and I wasn't able to order anything I'd had before. There was also a total lack of vegetarian or vegetable/tofu... More

Had a wonderful meal at this fantastic restaurant. Everything about this place is first class from the food, the friendly staff and the lovely decor. We went for New Years Eve. It was busy and there was a break between courses however this suits us anyway when eating out and the break was acceptable and understanding given the timing of... More

The place it's self was very clean and nice inside. The staff friendly and welcoming. The were no draught beers on tap which may suggest they hadn't paid their brewery and only had bottles available for purchase, but they had a wide choice. The service was slow as we were there as a group of thirty as they struggled to... More

Hi there, Thank you for taking your time in giving us a feedback on TripAdvisor, I would like to take opportunity to explain and reply to your thought about our draught beer. We have been experience some technical problem with our draught beer cooler, therefore we decided not to sell it to customers as the beers would not be cold... More

I am undecided as to whether or not I would go here again. We were part of a large party (30 + people) and I felt that they were unable to cope with a group of this size. We had pre ordered our food so would have thought that would have helped but most people had finished their starters before... More

I ate here on Saturday 15th November with my boyfriend. We love thai food and as the reviews were so good thought that we would give it a try. We had booked a table for 7pm and were greeted by a flustered waiter who sat us down and explained that they had a large party in and could only give... More
