Nice looking pub, great outdoor eating area. End of positives for our visit. Waited forever to order food for our group of eight. Sat outside and waited and waited and waited for it to arrive...you get the idea. We were patient because we have family in the service industry but we waited well over an hour. Had two pints while... More

We got off the Electric Train at Laxey and this was just ip from the station so thought it rude not to visit. Clean and good atmosphere and great choice of beers and ciders.

This pub / restaurant is at the Laxey interchange for the Manx Electric Rly & Snaefell Mountain rly so a great position to watch the trams come and go. Sit outside in the newly refurbished outer garden / pergola area. A super sun trap. At the time of writing the Tavern was being refurbished so food was limited but it... More

Popped in for a diet coke to read the paper, and found the staff very attentive and the atmosphere in the pub was warm and welcoming - definitely a place to visit !.

Had several meals here, with my wife, good old fashioned pub food and better than most pubs. The inside is done out like a Victorian Electric railway tram...very quaint

IT is great to have a stop off on the Electric Railway at Laxey and have a beer in the Mines Tavern, whilst waiting for the next train. Done this a few times now and it a very relaxing pub.

A most friendly landlord poured excellent ales for us today via hand pump. Okells Bitter and Manx Pale Ales were at their finest this lunch time and were greatly appreciated by a Scotsman living in California. Something tells me that the next three days will be most fulfilling!

We were between trains, so did not have time to eat but sitting outside in the beer garden with a pint of local beer in the sunshine was very pleasant indeed. Prices were very good; 2-ginger beers (non-alcoholic) and 2-pints of local beer for just over £8.00 is not bad and much cheaper than in the south of England. Mine... More
