This Chinese was delicious. Fast service. Could take away left overs. The pub looks ordinary from outside but has a play area for kids which is great. Will return.

I dropped in with a visiting mate for a couple of beers. The Tavern is run down and very ordinary. I certainly wasn't expecting much and that's what we got. No real atmosphere or reason to visit again.

Good value, tasty and always very fast service. We are locals and regular diners. Salt & pepper chilli calamari is our favourite.

My wife and I have had take away from here a few times now and we are never disappointed. Food is yummy and staff are friendly, it's just a shame the Tavern drink prices are quite expensive otherwise we would dine in more often.
