Went in for Brunch today - was busy, staff were friendly. Only MAJOR problem was that we had to wait an hour for our brunch!!!! The wait staff were apolgetic and done all they could. Unfortunately because of this I cant rate them high at all and wont be returning

Going to the Tavern last Thursday just after 8 pm we were not expecting too much to be available and were surprised to find that the only thing there was not much of, was customers, but the staff was immediately attentive friendly and full of smiles.
