Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We were lucky enough to call The Taverners our local while we were on holiday for a week in Godshill. We visited twice for dinner. The menu had a good variety to cater for 9 people without being dubiously long, plus they have a separate...vegetarian menu which was appreciated. The specials were particularly delicious, and were different on both our visits. The staff here are a real credit to the management team. Every single member of staff we dealt with was really friendly, polite and quick to help. Overall we would highly recommend The Taverners - and if you get the chance to join in with their fortnightly pub quiz, then take it! A great fun night mixing with locals and holidaymakers.More

The Taverners was amazing old world yet homely style, cosy, very welcoming. The best thing for us was an excellent and wide-ranging vegetarian menu, which is rare. We were not disappointed, the food was delicious and of the highest quality. Service attentive and friendly. Good...wines. An excellent pub in a pretty village.More

Best pub on the island, with great food and service. Good value and plenty of room in the summer outside. Moules Frites Fridays also a winner!!

We had the roast dinner at The Taverners and it was extremely good. Even though it was Easter Sunday and very busy all the staff we dealt with were courteous and had time to explain. One of our party is gluten free and this was...dealt with without any issues. Would thoroughly recommend.More

We had a lovely meal, the food was delicious and we were served with a smile, very friendly and helpful to a fussy child! The one issue we had was the music being too loud, and not being able to hear each other across the...table. Other than that great visit and food, will deffo be returning.More

A really warm welcome and excellent service. My wife and I both had the Sunday roast 'best of both meats', and it was all cooked to perfection. We can't rate this place highly enough but the sad thing is we won't have the time to...visit again on this holiday.More

We popped out for lunch with my son. We all chose beef suet pie. It was absolutely delicious. Really loved having extra gravy too. We were served by two different ladies, both were great - really lovely and very attentive. 🙂

Good friendly service, waitresss gave us a blanket for our dog to lie on, excellent beer (old fashioned bitter), food imaginative and pretty good. Fair prices. We arrived at 1200 and it was cold inside, and never really warmed up, tea was fine but I...cannot recommend the coffee. Music thoughout pub was generally annoying muzak but that I guess is a matter of taste, some people might like it.More

Lovely lunch. Comfortable table, with friendly and helpful service from the staff. Our ciabatta's were fresh and very tasty, and the tiramisu desserts very good. Tasty pint of Taverners ale too, all competitively priced. We look forward to our next visit, which I don't feel...will be too long!More

The staff are very friendly, dogs are welcome and the food excellent. If you prefer you can have a smaller meal. There’s a great selection of low alcohol beers. I enjoyed the Erdinger.

We booked for Sunday lunch and were not disappointed. Great food, even better service/staff and a lovely atmosphere. It was that good that we went back for an evening meal later in the week. Well worth a visit.
