From my last visit here I had ordered sausages and chips, so decided to order the same, I am pleased to say they are still tasty as well as the sticky toffee pudding

Came over with a few friends and had a pretty good meal. Service was a bit slow but to be fair it was a busy night. Cannot argue with the value or the quality of the meal though. If anything, the view s really great. To be fair, I can see myself visiting again. I liked the atmosphere of the... More

Good location overlooking a big bay with a typical pub food menu. Service was good and the food adequate and reasonable value. The atmosphere was lively.

If you want traditional pub grub then this is the place to go . Service is average and food ok unfortunately they put the tables so close together that is difficult to have a conversation With the people you are with Won't rush back rather pay a little more for better food and service and setting with more room

Houmet Tavern with its panoramic views of the bay is a wonderful place to dine or just to go for a drink. There's an extensive menu with something to suit everyone, always check the specials !! Extensive bar with wine that's not overly priced. Highly recommended

We took mum here today for an early Mothers Day lunch and had a great table overlooking Grands Harve Bay. The view was stunning and we appreciated seeing the wind picking up and blowing the sea up into 'White Horses' peaks! Had a great meal, the Moules are worth a special 'shout out' as I enjoyed them tremendously, as was... More

We have been to the Houmet Tavern a number of times for family lunches, February 2017 being the most recent. The menu is already extensive, however there is always a specials board too which gives regular customers something new to try. I would describe the food as good quality pub food, with choices such as 'bangers and mash' and 'gammon... More

We were so lucky to get a window table with a fine view of the Bay so lunch was off to a good start ! The drinks waiter took our order and returned promptly with our drinks. Lunch itself was lovely and so enjoyable in such a relaxing atmosphere. It was busy and is obviously a popular eatery. We all... More
