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.

Beautiful hidden gem

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

We visited here for a birthday meal on Friday night. There was a variety of set menus, early bird menus and normal menus and between us we tried a bit of everything.

I am not a frequent user of Thai establishments, so I left the ordering of my meal to others.I was pleased with the delicious spices and the very attractive presentation..The service was very pleasant and efficient, and what was an almost empty restaurant , when we arrived at 6.30pm was extremely busy when we left, so obviously this place is...

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
