“Good food good service”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

Met my business partner here. Nice and warm inside, was shown to the bar and was warmly welcomed. ALL staff where attentive and food was excellent. The best in Bolton without a shadow of a doubt and very well priced indeed. Would I come back? you bet I would.

“day out with grandson”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

the food for my grandson was quite cold and not at all as it looked on the menu. we also found the menu quite expensive for a afternoons meal. the table next to us was very noisy and we also saw the children of the party drinking the beer out of the mens pint pots.

I am sorry that you did not thoroughly enjoy your visit , however we do not have images on our menu and am not really clear how the food did not match up to how it looked on the menu. Everything on our Childrens menu except the Pizza and the 4oz Burger is homemade , we serve our Childrens meals on cold plates but the Food is usually piping hot and am surprised on this occasin it was not. We have a very strict policy on underage drinking and do not allow chidren or people under the age of 18 to buy or consume alcohol.

“Top food at pub prices”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

Had Sunday lunch here after visiting with friends. The menu is really versatile with good portions. The atmosphere is really very good, with nice décor. I found the Sunday dinner a little blander than previous meals which were more bistro, but given the number of people being served on a Sunday afternoon the food is pretty faultless for the price. The service is always good, but the icing on the cake (excuse the pun) is definitely the desserts. The display cabinet is amazing, with the portions huge compared the little ones you get most places. Would definitely return but probably for an evening meal with friends.

“Cannot be faulted”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

For quality food,service & atmosphere the Tavern takes some beating.We went with our friends the other night who we meet up with about 4 times a year due to distances involved.They always ask to go to the Tavern & say they wish there was one near to were they live.
Nothing is to much trouble for any of the staff & the manager is always available if you need to know anything or have any special request.My wife & i have been going for many years now & if there was somewhere better to dine we would go.

“not the best meal & not particularly value for money”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

I think almost £40 for lunch for 2 adults and a baby is rather expensive considering it was just 2 adult main meals, one small childs meal and 2 coffee's.

I am so sorry that we did not live up to your expectations. The overall price does vary according to what you choose and the number of courses, and drinks. Again I am sorry that you did not thoroughly enjoy your food, but do hope that you try us again sometime soon.
