“Absolutely excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2012 via mobile

Just back home after lunch at the Tavern with friends. Excellent, we all chose different dishes, all delicious, fresh fish including
flounder from our local River Dee. Sauces with great depth of taste, deserts with beautiful presentation and great flavour.
The tavern is going from strength to strength. And deserves its good food award.

Try the OAP lunch with 20% discount, tried to get the name changed to Seniors, without success. Only time we accept OAP title well worth it.
The Tavern is a gem.

“Easily overlooked but what a culinary treat you're in for!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Attentive and smiling waitresses really did add to what was a superb meal.
The trio of pork was one of the tastiest meals I have had in a long time - crispy belly pork + a pork fag got + pork loin with a deeply tasty gravy and vegetables infused with something satisfying(can't remember what!). My wife had a huge Welsh,black welsh steak and ale pie, all wrapped in "proper" crusty pastry(no puff pastry lids here).
Puddings were excellent too - a warm bread-and-butter pudding with warm, infused apricots and a rum'n'raisin ice cream for me, and an ice cream parfait with crispy sabayon(?spelling) for my wife.
Before you choose, look at the specials' board. We thought we were ready to order, then noticed the specials and did a little somersaulting before finally making our choice. So much sounded so good.
We highly recommend the Tavern; we'll be back soon with friends.

“What are the moaners moaning about??”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

We were very surprised to see a couple of recent poor reviews on TripAdvisor; we have always found the Tavern to be excellent value, with genuinely good food and attentive service and our most recent visit did not disappoint. Good specials, a wide-ranging menu, reasonably priced drinks and very pleasant service - and not a hint of orange! My hake was perfectly cooked and if the tarte tatin was slightly less rich than I'd expected this is a very minor criticism and should not detract from the overall good experience. Take no notice of the whingers!

“You get what you pay for.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

We went as a party of six and we all said the food was excellent. My sirloin steak was cooked to perfection (med-rare) which a lot of places just can't get right, The Tavern got it spot on. I didn't have the soup but those that did said it was superb. If you want £6.99 pub grub don't come here. But if you want restaurant quality food, good wine, very good service and cask ale go to The Tavern. Bill? £180 for six starters, six mains, about 3-4 drinks each. Worth every penny.

“Wow”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

I am hard to please but it would be harder to find anywhere with better food, more attentive (discretly) staff or better value. I am looking forward to going back. What this shows is that if you produce the goods you will be sucessful. Shame more restaurants don't follow suit.
