With a new chef and owners in February, the tavern is serving some great food, the Porterhouse being a highlight and amongst the best I've had, medium rare of course :)

With new management, and a new chef, and a new menu, the Tavern has really impressed. All of our meals were absolutely faultless!! From the vindaloo to the garlic prawns, everyone was very happy with their selection. Definitely be back again.
