I emailed the Greek Taverna some two weeks prior to book a table (for 6 of us) on a Sunday lunch time, and just as an after thought said would there be Kleftiko on the specials board ?
Back came the reply - "we will make some specially for you".
And true to their word they did.
It was excellent.
This is a truly great place to meet, eat and enjoy- a bit of Hellas in Somerset. The food (especialy the Kleftiko) was outstanding, the service just right and we had a wonderful time.
Greek desserts can usually be a bit, well dull, but not so here - we all enjoyed them.
This is a former pub, the Sun, and whilst parts still show this, the main restaurant is light airy, and gives off that Agean feel (even on a damp Sunday).
All six of enjoyed ourselves, ate well, and we each commented on how welcome we were made to feel - it became an occaision rather than being a run of the mill pub lunch. This was a real feel-good Sunday treat, and made a very welcome change from that Sunday roast.
Highly recommended.

After being tempted to go in by a special offer on the board outside, we were pleasantly surprised by how lovely the whole dining experience was. We had the tapas to share which consisted of lots of yummy little dishes (a real treat for the tastebuds!) and a glass of wine each. The service was fast and polite and we would definately eat here again. Highly recommended for a good value meal out.

Great to enjoy a delicious meze in nice surroundings with friendly staff in a restaurant that welcomes our well behaved Staffie to join us. A specific mention for the delicious Baklava which was made by Olga's mum and was the highlight of the meal.

I echo the positive reviews and would definitely return.
