We visited Alton Towers but could not face eating there at the splash landings hotel...so we used trip advisor to find this pub. Lovely ambience, traditional pub, lovely village setting, very very nice food and cost us £50 for family of 4 including drinks and desserts. Highly recommend eating here if you are in the area. Very very nice....it made our trip to Alton Towers bearable!

We called at the last minute and the landlord kindly fitted us in as they had a large party arriving . On our arrival, they were very solicitous and wanted to check we were happy with where we were seated, as they had moved tables together to accommodate us. We appreciated this attention to detail.

Service was efficient and really friendly and the pub had a great atmosphere and it was clear that it is very popular with the locals.
On our trip, we visited both here and the Royal Oak in Alton and thought the Tavern had the slight edge overall. Although the food is probably more impressive at the Royal Oak, the atmosphere and conviviality here is hard and to beat.
