Description: Rich in its Eastern references, The Tavern Bar and Thai Restaurant offers Wigan���s diners a sumptuous dining experience with a strong Thai feel. Passers by may mistake The Tavern to be just another high-end pub but stepping inside this old Victorian drinking establishment, you���ll discover an exciting fusion of East and West, the antique wood carved bar surrounded by high tables and stools yet lit by printed silk lamps and dotted with pretty pink orchids. Through to the expansive dining room, The Tavern becomes increasingly sophisticated with a romantic atmosphere. The space is surrounded by beautiful Thai artefacts and yet more plants, the lighting low and warm and tables generously spaced. As well as the traditional dishes Thai restaurants are known for, The Tavern���s talented kitchen offers a fine selection of its own creative takes on South East Asian cuisine, using authentic ingredients such as lemongrass, galangal and coconut milk, flown in direct from Thailand weekly, to evoke the traditional flavour of Thai cookery.

Mood lifted by attentive service and excellent food from the fixed menu. House wine added to the experience. Forget the weather, the food here was easily as good as many upmarket Thai restaurants across the country

My husband and I had the 2 course meal in this lovely Thai restaurant. It was fairly quiet as it was a Monday night but we thoroughly enjoyed it. The meal was really tasteful and excellent value for money. The staff were very pleasant and helpful (waitress and bar staff) and the restaurant itself was lovely. We would definitely recommend this restaurant and would certainly visit again if we are ever in the Wigan are again. Thank you.

Gorgeous food, lots of variety, friendly staff.
1st night without children in almost 3 years & we wanted something special. They didn't disappoint. I have never tried Thai & can't take anything hot, yet was surprised by the number of choices available to me. My husband likes his food as hot as possible & was equally impressed with his meal.
The portion sizes are perfect, not too much to over-face you but enough to leave you completely satisfied.
This is a little gem & we will definitely go back next time we are in the UK. We have also recommended the place to family & friends in the area.

Took my wife for a birthday treat on 23 Dec. As we entered the bar area which was surprisingly nearly empty, nice young man behind the bar greeted us with a smile and asked if we were for the restaurant. We told him we were but would have a drink in the bar as we were a few minutes early. We got our drinks, the barmen refused a tip and we sat down for a few minutes before going upstairs to the restaurant. We were greeted with a nice smile from a young thai lady and shown to our reserved seats. I won't witter on too long. Suffice to say, that the service was excellent and so was the food. No point in telling you what we had. Go and try it for yourself. I don't think you will be disappointed

We have been to the Tavern a couple of times and the standard and quality of food is excellent. The duck is cooked to perfection! The staff are attentive, polite and friendly and the restaurant setting is warm and relaxing. Definitely worth a visit.
