The food is lovely. The service is great. But two draw backs... Firstly some of the lights are hanging low on the tables and were very bright. We asked to be moved from one table as we began to get headaches, and this was before we had ordered! Also the light was caked with dust, which we certainly didn't want in our food. Secondly, as a vegetarian I felt rather disappointed by the lack of vegie options on the 2 mains for £12. As the majority of people eat veg and only half the population eat meat, I would have thought there would have been more than a vegie lasagne to choose from. There is a vegetarian menu, on the back of the children's menu, which you have to ask for, as it's not on the table, but these are all full price and so are not included in the offer. Rather discriminatory I feel. Other than these two points the pub is lovely.

Clearly marked out flooring and one way system to feel comfortable and spaced out in the restaurant. Servers were speedy and very polite. Food was delicious and well priced (big portions too!). Will definitely be returning in the future.

Another excellent meal enjoyed at The Tavern. 2 courses for £10 is real value for money, and the portions are huge! We ate at 6pm, with the pub quiet, hence only 3 for atmosphere, but if suited us just fine.

I booked ahead of time but my reservation was not accommodated for and I was only informed when I arrived rathed than ahead of my booking. The staff were lovely. The food was disappointing and social distancing measures are not being followed. There were multiple groups of more than 6 people and a lot of people standing around the dining area and bar while I was there over the weekend. Quite disappointed over all.

Food delicious - but very busy. Our table was ideal because we were up a corner and had plastic screens between us and the other tables nearby. However, other tables were still in place as before Covid and not very well spaced out and we certainly didn't notice plastic screens between all the other tables. Having said this, we would gladly go back for both price and food.

It was lovely. Garlic mushrooms weren't the best but everything else was great. It was very busy and some of the staff were better than others. We waited quite a while at the door to be seated and the one yound man acted as though everything was too much trouble. All other staff were excellent and service was prompt despite how busy it was. The only other thing to comment on is we asked for the bill and waited over 15 minutes for it but weren't given chance to review it as the lady who bought the bill had the card machine in hand and was keen to get payment straight away which felt rushed but I do understand they were extremely busy.

This was my friend's first outing into a pub since lockdown I had been to you before and felt it was the right place for him to attend - well spaced out brilliant social distancing staff in visors and masks - first rate - he enjoyed the experience and felt very comfortable and will come back again (we are both in our 70's)
