6 of us visited here for a meal out in the new year, slightly sceptical about having to get a taxi as I couldn't be bothered to travel but it was a great decision. On the night there was only one man working the bar and the restaurant and it never felt like he was over whelmed, service was great.... More

Just popped in today at the mid-point of a walk, needed refreshing and food. Great service at the bar with a nice selection on the menu, freshly cooked and quickly brought to us, we can recommend the Cajun chicken. What topped off the visit with no prompting was the offer to take us back to the car 4 miles away... More

My husband's favourite pub excelled for his special birthday. Family members aged 8 to 80 from as far afield as Australia enjoyed an excellent meal with friendly and efficient service. Thanks to all at The Tavern.

We visited the Tavern on Saturday with some friends who had chosen it after a day out. As soon as we arrived at the restaurant and surrounding village, we were greeted with a magical fairyland scene that promised a wonderful eating experience. It did not disappoint :our meals were excellent, the host was extremely welcoming and the staff were friendly... More

This is our new local, and having now eaten here a number of times we have not been disappointed. Food is served every day except Monday, and every day has a different special at a reduced rate, as well as the varied regular selection. We have tried the steaks and the pies and have been really impressed. The ale is... More
