First time eating here and I already want to go back! The bread, steak, mash, mac and cheese- it’s all amazing! And a very nice touch with chocolate covered strawberries and a rose for my wife on Valentine’s Day. I’ll surely be telling all of my friends to eat here.

Our food was delicious, and for this reason alone we'd return. Our seating was on the later side (9pm), but the place was very quiet and the staff seemed to be winding down, so we seemed to have to wait longer than we would have liked to get the waitstaff's attention, or to get refills on drinks. I am hopeful the service would be better if the restaurant were busier.

Service was slow and our order was wrong. One person got the wrong side dish one person got nothing. Restaurant wasn’t full - maybe they were short staffed because it was also really slow - getting a second drink took 20 minutes

We went to Tavern to celebrate my Mother’s birthday. We were seated fast and given time to go over menu and ask questions. Amazing food and drinks for the 24.00pp price.
