A well decorated restaurant with a nice cosy, comfortable feel. The waitress was great. Made us feel welcome and service was excellent. The food was fantastic and we will return. Thank you to the staff and the owners.

Some restaurants have a brigade of chefs and others have the chef/owner doing everything in the kitchen. Both can be excellent but Tabb’s is a one chef business that beats many of the larger establishments. Nigel Tabb produces flavour and texture combinations that are as...More

A little gem of a restaurant. First impressions are that Tabbs is unassuming and shy - but then meet the wonderful couple running the restaurant, taste the food and listen to the music and you soon realise that you have found an idyll!
