The food is incredible, the burgers and chilli chips are stunning. However by for the best are the salads. The only slight problem is the the DJ can be a bit over powering.

Came in on a Sunday evening with two friends for dinner. We liked the look of the squid, so decided to share a portion to start. Soon enough the food came to the table, with the rest of the meal arriving at the same time. Not a massive deal but we thought it necessary to point out that we ordered... More

This was my second visit to the tavern and it was even better than I remember it. Really well cooked simple food which was just what I was after. This is a good location for either lunch or dinner. The bar staff even went out of their way to make a cocktail not on their menu but it was from... More

Came for a friends birthday staff were super friendly and accommodating, especially as we had called only minutes before to book for 14 of us! (Bad experience at Bottle of sauce meant we chose to leave and relocate!) The tavern delivered on all accounts, amazing food, friendly staff and wonderful atmosphere! Thank you!!

This was our first visit to The Tavern since it re-opened and I was hoping for good things. I knew the menu had been changed to just the burgers and sides when it re-opened but I'd loved it before as it was the one place locally that did great 'dirty food' and they now offer a couple of veggie options,...

The food is very good and the staff are always cheerful and helpful! The interior is very a cool industrial style. A great place to eat & drink ( the beer menu is... More

My friend was super excited to show me this place, and I can immediately see why. The burger was one of the best I've ever had for flavour and quality. The sides were amazing-I'll definitely get the mac n cheese every time, and the sweet potato fries came with a cheese dip I've not had before but I could have... More

If you like burgers & chips this is one step up from Burger King! With 3 times the price. The Caesar salad lacked enough chicken pieces. Excellent Butcombe beer but again too expense. Service was good but felt the additional service charge did not make for value for money meal & good night out.

The last time I visited the Tavern, it was excellent, sadly this visit it dropped a notch or two but would I revisit? Yes as I think this visit was just an unlucky night! The atmosphere was good, the service a tad slow but my husband and I weren't in a hurry so that was fine. My husband chose the... More

Met up with six friends for a meal and a catch up. They had a good verity of non alcoholic beer as we was mostly driving. Food was great proper manly burger. Service was even better couldn't fault them.

The Tavern started with a simple mission...to deliver delicious food at reasonable prices. Our mission remains the same. We bring you favourites from the old along with gobsmackingly delicious burgers, sinful shakes laced with bourbon and bespoke ice cream sundaes where you can pick the flavour, toppings and sauces. What's new is you can eat at any time from midday to midnight. Expect homemade, artisan burgers, made with local dry aged beef on Stokes Marsh Farm from Aberdeen Angus cross Hereford cows and a whole load of twists and classics like mac n cheese, sinful shakes and bespoke ice cream sundaes.
