Service too was very good, the whole pub had a lovely atmosphere. There is even a selection of good ales on tap!! Great night, I'd recommend The Tavern at Denstone to... More

My boyfriend and I went here for dinner on our weekend away. I'm really pleased we booked on a Saturday night as it was packed by the time we had ordered. It felt very cozy inside and the atmosphere was great and everyone was really friendly. We both had pizza which was really excellent and we even took home our... More

Went here with some work colleagues for some dinner, the food is very nice, the staff are lovely only comment would be chocolate brownie is a tad too rich and the chips could do with cooking a bit longer. But all in all it's lovely

We have just got back from a wonderful evening at The Tavern. They had laid on a special menu for Valentines Day which was 3 courses with a choice of 3 or 4 dishes on each course. Both my husband and I said that we could have eaten any of the choices on the menu as they all sounded delicious.... More

We eat at the Tavern quite regularly – at least once a month on a Sunday for the sumptuous carvery. Now, whenever and whenever we eat out we play a game of “Marks Out of Ten”. I.e. marks out of 10 for the starter, main, desert drinks etc. and then an overall mark out of 10…. I can honestly say... More
