“Good job we booked.”
Reviewed May 26, 2014

Not a huge menu, kind of trendy pub restaurant. Old building with high ceilings. Potato skins, starter, enough to share. Steaks lovely, but no veg to speak of so order extra.

“Good Food & Great Music”
Reviewed May 20, 2014

This was the first time we had stayed in Montagu and had a meal at Ye Old Tavern. We both ordered the beef fillet which was cooked to perfection, the mushroom sauce was excellent. We recommend this restaurant to everyone visiting Montagu.

“Great food and service”
Reviewed May 13, 2014 via mobile

I've been to Ye Olde Tavern several times and it's become a family favourite. Personally I enjoy the steaks and also ribs the most.
The menu is extensive and everyone is usually happy with what they ordered.
