Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Have gone back to this restaurant several times and the food is always top class. This time it didn't let us down either. However on this occasion the service was a little slow and if you needed the attention of the waiting staff, they were...not watching enough to see if a table needed something else. It is a small gripe, but never had that issue before. Food as always excellent.More

Spent a weekend in Westport over new years - staying in the Wyatt in town. Got a recommendation to come to the Tavern for dinner and drinks and we were all (party of 6) really impressed. Genuinely excellent service and even better food. Seafood platter...to start - mussels, crab claws, spiced calamari prawns plus more were beautifully fresh and tasty. I had the scallops and pork belly special for mains, which was also gorgeous and a really significant plate - stuffed after it. The highlight was the chowder my mother had, possibly the nicest chowder I have tried. Setting and service were also top quality - we were served by the young lady that seemed to be in charge of the bar and she was excellent. Overall a great evening and would recommend the Tavern to anyone in the area.More

We stopped in on Thanksgiving day just looking for a good dinner. While a 3 course T- Day dinner was offered we chose to go for a more characteristic Irish dinner. We were blown away. Everything was delicious! Fresh, local fish, fruits and vegetables each...with unique flavors. Great gin selection with a variety of tonics for each. Spectacular and highly recommended.More

Celebrated a family 60th birthday here over 35 of us including children . From the minute we arrived we were shown to our seats where we were all seated together + a children’s table . The staff were beyond helpful and so very very pleasant....Our orders were taken , and the food arrived promptly im sure between us all we tried all the dishes. The staff served the children first and all adult meals were served very quickly so we were all able to eat together. Not one wrong order and all piping hot . The food was beyond excellent not one complaint from any of us. The birthday boy was treated to a pint and a dessert and a rendition of happy birthday from all the staff. Such truly great service , food and lovely staff. We had been to the Tavern a few times so we knew how good it was but for those that were there for the first time they were absolutely delighted with everything. What else can i say only thank you to the all staff for a brilliant evening you now have a few new fans. Alex was the lady we dealt with when organising the party and she was excellent and very helpful with everything. Thank you to all the staff for you are amazing.More

We’re regulars at the Tavern and it never fails to impress. The staff, service and food are all 10/10. We went to the Tavern over the October bank holiday weekend with friends and had a great night. The specials on the menu were excellent. My...husband and I both had the curry, made with chicken, pumpkin and chickpeas - fabulous! Our friends enjoyed the beef ragu with pappardelle and the crab claws and prawns, again from the specials menu. As always brilliant service. A great place to enjoy good food, good company and good service. Would happily recommend.More

I had a wonderful dining experience at the Tavern Bar and Restaurant. The service was excellent, with attentive and friendly staff who made us feel right at home. For our starter, we opted for the sharing board, which was a delightful combination of flavors and...textures that left us craving more. However, the highlight of the evening was the beef feather blade main course. The meat was tender, succulent, and bursting with flavor. The presentation was also top-notch. Overall, a fantastic evening with great service and delicious food. Highly recommended!More

A great restaurant should be able to keep standards when owners not around ! Terrible staff experience tonight at Tavern - asked to move to our table 10 minutes early cause ‘staff wanted to finish early’. Really ! So ordered and stated clearly we didn’t...want to sit down till HT at RWC Final - Ignored!! Staff desperately trying to get customers out [at 9pm on a Sat night!!!]. Wake up - complacency not welcome - treat your customers with the same respect Oct as July. And address some terrible staff issues. Food btw was Ok - again not Tavern standard.More

Large pub / restaurant with very good food. The Seafood Chowder is outstanding and unsurprisingly a national award winner. Staff are pleasant and professional. The place is comfortable and popular as much with locals as with tourists who flock to Craigh Patrick holy mountain. The...tough climb produced many hungry (& thirsty) customers.More
