This is still our favourite restaurant and we try to come here every week or two. You know you're in good hands when the manager shows you to your table and says your regular drinks order is already on its way! The food, staff, service and atmosphere is excellent and it's always a good weekend when it includes a meal... More

Came here with a friend after all the good reputation I've heard. Got there around 12, approx 20mins wait on a Good Friday. Ordered the English breakfast - definitely not disappointed! Quite a decent portion as well.. my friend went for eggs royale with a side of spinach - again we were both impressed with the flavours! To top it... More

Been here lots of times. You always get a really good breakfast. Service can be a little hit and miss. But to be fair, the service was great on this occasion. A lovely young girl, who could not have tried any harder. Great personality and an absolute credit to The Tavern.

We've had brunch here multiple times now and it's always a great experience, food is delicious ,served quickly and very cheap. Only downside is how busy it gets ! I would recommend the French toast or pancakes.

The English breakfast tastes really good, worth for waiting in a long queue. Someone said the service is poor, but I do not agree, they are friendly and serve well. Free tea and coffee is served if you order any breakfast which cost around £7-8.

Attempted to go The Tavern today, having been a few times before. Although the service by the restaurant staff isn't the best, the food is usually of a high standard. You know what you're getting and sometimes I like that. On this occasion however, I called ahead to see if a table for two would be available for 19:15? I... More

In terms of food quality, it's fantastic. My friend and i ordered 3 dishes total. An egg dish each, and a third sweet dish - we specifically asked for the french toast with blueberries to come out as a dessert after we finish our eggs. It was the first thing out of the kitchen - so by the time we... More

Staff always friendly. Service always swift. 2 full breakfasts for the boys. Hubby loves their bacon & their toast. This time I had chorizo with sautéed mushrooms & onions with scrambled egg. It didn't look very appetising as it's all cooked together & so looks like dirty scrambled eggs. But it tastes amazing. With toast on the side it was... More

Lots of people raved about this place, I found myself here on a week day around brunch time. It's clearly very popular as it was quite busy but we were not waiting for no longer than 15 minutes for a table. The breakfast menu was incredible, and the selection was very good! The price was very reasonable indeed, and there... More
