Trudged back from the wheel in the pouring rain. Absolutely sodden. Felt embarrassed about going in really. Should not have worried. Fire stoked up for us, chairs made available to hang wet coats on,excellent pints pulled and good sandwiches provided. This is not a haute cuisine restaurant but it is a lovely friendly pub. 10 out of 10 for hospitality... More

After visiting the Laxey Wheel we stopped off at Mines Tavern for a welcome drink. It has recently been refurbished and the kitchens were only recently fitted out. The menu looked good.

Hmm. The Mines Tavern is my local. It is alright. The menu is not vast and it mainly serves cold food, last time I checked... If you are after a quick and quiet pint and moving on then it is ideal. If you are looking for a hot meal then you are probably gonna have a better chance going to... More

This pleasant hostelry does great beer and good food. Our visit was for lunch and the special pastie was a real treat. Nice patio area at the front makes good alfresco dining. Excellent ales from Okells add to the pleasure

A relative was visiting us on the Island from England after having been here a number of years ago. He remembered enjoying a meal at the Mines Tavern on that occasion and wanted to try there again. It was not a good experience this time. We had a ham sandwich each which cost £6.50 per person. There was very little... More

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 !.
