I can't rave enough about this place. Consistently great low cost basic pub food, with excellent service! The chicken & bacon salad is Devine as is the schnitzel and would be my pick of the old favourites. One disappointment I had this time is I had a fruit crumble for dessert which had been reheated in the microwave so had... More

What a great selection of meals at very reasonable prices, must be the best for choices in Dunedin of all the hotels. Foods nice and plenty of it to fill you up followed up with dessert if you have room lol. It's fully licensed so all kinds of drinks are served and children are also welcome.

Menu offers choises of small, medium or large which we found great. I had the small pork roast which was ample. It was under $10 and I ate every bit of it. My husband had the cod which he said was nice too. There are plenty of choices on the menu and they won't break the bank.

We thought we have the roast of the day as it was lamb and you have to eat lamb in New Zealand. It was a very disappointing meal the meat was as tough as an old boot and dryed up, and thin slices What a disappointment as it wasn't a cheap meal.

We dined at the Tavern on Sunday Night and couldn't get over how many people were dining. Obviously the locals know the great spot to eat and we loved it

This restaurant I have been to many times and always loved. Yet the last 2 times I have been, the food has been below average and wait staff just don't really seem to care. Go back to what it used to be! Not really keen on their new menu at all
