Dinner for four was fabulous, nothing left on the plates! Well done! Chicken Schnitzel, Buddha bowl, pork cutlets and rump with prawns and garlic sauce! We'll be back again as soon as possible!

Went for dinner on Saturday night. Had booked a table. Just as well - it was very busy. Security at the door was covering Covid and keeping numbers at required levels. Food was excellent! Oysters, bruschetta, fish of the day, lamb rack... all rated highly....The Tavern has a couple of inside seating levels plus an outdoor terrace. New management is turning the place around. Well done.More

Our meal was fantastic and we enjoyed the wide varieties of beers, ciders on tap and wines. Management was welcoming and Covid safe.

We read reviews and were immediately deterred but were told it had a ‘new chef’ and was under ‘new management’ so, being the only place in town on a Tuesday night open for dinner we went. We got here and the place wasn’t very busy....Not very many people eating, 1 person lining up for food. Grab menus and went to order only to be told there was a big group about to arrive to the Tavern and we would have to wait to order after them. Umm WHAT?! No reason was given. We obliged and waited. Finally when ordering we were told that food would be at >1 hours wait. Seriously this place is really sad. The management is non-existent. If you are looking to eat dinner in Crescent Head. Avoid being here Mon-Wed. Everywhere is closed and you will be left to roll the dice at the TavernMore

We went here for lunch while in Crescent Head. They don't seem to have the Covid19 thing covered well. No one was checking on people entering the Tavern. The only staff member we saw was at the bar. We found a table, looked at the...menu and ordered. We were then told that tables with numbers on them were booked so we moved to another table. No staff had told us this when we entered. The menu is limited to basic pub food. We had vegan nachos - it was large enough to share. It was ok, no chilli at all, not even a hint, so it lacked that authentic nacho flavour. 2 lime and sodas cost us $9,which seemed excessive. While we were there some other patrons moved a couple of tables and blocked the stairs, making it difficult for us to get down them. Nothing was done about this. No the best lunch I've had.More

Went there on Wednesday night to watch state of origin football. We had to go down stairs to the bottle shop to order pizzas and once ready take them up stairs to to the tavern to eat. No other food available. One of the staff...possibly owner or manager was drinking quiet a bit while in work shirt. Not a professional look. Pizza was nice and cost $25 A can of bourbon cost $11. Thankfully this is not my local at those prices. Would not return there as appears to be poorly run hotel that ran out of cans at 8pm with only about 40people at location and some beer taps were turned off and no real food selection like most hotels have.More
