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.

We are highly disappointed with food after reading great reviews! For starters we ordered Chicken Satay which in menu reads 'Chargrilled' It definitely wasn't. It was deep fried. It came very greasy. For main my partner had Green Chicken Curry. It was bland, chewy and chicken had texture like it has been defrosted. I had Stir Fried Squid which was... More

We have visited this local restaurant on many occasions with our family, including our 8 month old baby. I rang today to reserve a table at 6pm for nye for 6 adults. I was told that there was availability. I then requested a high chair as we would be bringing our baby. The lady said this would not be possible... More

It's our second time here and we will definitely be going again. It was quiet so our food came very quickly. Mixed starter, king Prawn Pad Thai noodles and Weeping Tiger. Everything was spot on from service to taste. This place is now our favourite place to have Dinner in Wigan. It's a must try for Thai Food lovers.

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 Thai. We have visited Thailand on several occasions and... 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
