We have eaten at the bar twice and had good meals in a pleaseant setting. Molly the friendly barmaid is attractive, efficient, and knowledgable. Terriffc selection of wines and beers. Molly knows her stuff and you should take her advice. Steamed mussels and the Tavern Burger are absolutely first-rate and as good as any I've had anywhere. They have their own produce garden and use it to good effect in the fresh and seasonable dishes and specials. Menu rotates every few weeks. Bar is smallish and quite, with a nice rotation of tunes played at reasonable volume. They are very accomadating and when my wife wasn't really in the mood for the menu selections they offered to whip her up something off the menu. She asked for and got a nice medly of steamed root vegetables cooked perfectly and presented in a nice way. They even made up a special key on the register for it, so ask for the B.A.V.P. The Big Veggie Plate.
Can't wait to try the rest of the menu items and to dine al fresco this summer.
