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.

Before we came to Kata I messaged The Tavern to ask if they would be showing the Liverpool V Man Utd Game FA Cup Sunday 10.30 pm kick off they said they would be but the kitchen Closes at 9pm, we went for 8.30 pm...to eat food brilliant, there was only 5 other people in 7 with us, 4 left, it was 10 pm now, we then got told they were closing, so we had to drink up and leave and find somewhere else to watch the match, I understand they want to close if hardly anyone in, but maybe they could have told me that in the message, won’t be back to the TavernMore

If you need a break from the delicious Thai food (just to have a different flavour), the steak was perfectly done and a good price! Artfully presented and so delicious. The sunday roast day is also great, we went on 2 different sundays. Great value...for really, really good food.More

Fantastic! Visiting in low season, we read the reviews and thought we'd try, we were not disappointed. The welcome was great, service outstanding, drinks spot on and food was fresh and so tasty (we opted for traditional Thai). All in all, well worth a visit!

We were looking for a sports bar in Kata Beach to watch the AFL footy. After googling what is around came across this little gem. A bit tricky to find as it is at the end of a street that has shops closed so you...would not expect to find anything open if just wandering past the top of the street. Definitely worth going has lots of TV’s with different sport, comfortable seats, very friendly staff, great food and drinks. Has a pool table.More

The food is the best in Phuket, and the price is unbelievable. 5* They also show live sport which brings in alot of people also, so I would advise getting there early.

The staff here are very welcoming and the food was great. It is an English/American ‘themed’ bar/restaurant - pool table, big TVs with sports on, etc. It was a little off the beaten track, down a side road from the main road on Kata beach,...but we found it.More

We had not been here for 5 years but knew the Tavern to be a great place to kick back and watch sports, AFL in particular. We took a punt and hoped it was still as good. We arrived at the soi (street) it was...in, unfortunately all the bustling restaurants had shut and were covered in graffiti. We looked down the street and could see the Tavern was still alive. We walked in and were warmly greeted. The three girls working were excellent, very attentive. We based ourselves there for the afternoon while the women went shopping. The girls found the right channel for our game and settled in for a very enjoyable afternoon. The beers were icey cold and they kept flowing. The fried rice was the best we had enjoyed in all our years coming to Thailand. I recommend if you are staying in Karon or Kata and want a relaxing bar to watch AFL, NRL or EPL then this is a must do.More

Best little bar in Kata and it is down at the bottom of what seems a derelict street, go down this street as this bar is worth it. The food is 1st class, the service is 1st class. They will probably get you any football...game you want to watch (live games) Cannot fault anything. This is our 2nd visit and I am sure we will visit at least once more before heading home.More

We searched a place in Kata to watch a football game and then have easy dinner. We looked at TripAdvisor and found The Tavern as one recommendation of several. The food was really good and service friendly and an even with full house of guests....We enjoyed Thai dishes - some sandwiches, and great value for money and good quality.More

Visited tonight as i was in the mood for pub food. The place was dead, just two other tables. Was in the mood for a bacon cheeseburger. Was told they don't have bacon. Weird. I was like "um ok...cheeseburger then.".... It was ok, but the...burger had cheez whiz on it as opposed to sliced cheese. Also ordered onion rings which turned out to be frozen ones. Also, the bill was roughly double the price of any other meal I have paid for since I've been in Phuket. Disappointing indeed. I will never go back.More

I think it is certainly best to book in advance. The tavern gets very busy. If you look on the Trip Advisor site the telephone number for the bar is there.
