'The Tavern' is my local and within easy walking distance from home.
The pub is kept by a young lady manager 'Sophie' a lovely pleasant person who knows her stuff and keeps the pub very well. She has recently won an award for Excellence in Pub retail and thoroughly well deserved it is too, she has done a great job with The Tavern. They have also recently been checked by Casque Mark and gained a good review. Good sized car parking area at the side and welcoming facade to the premises. The Pub is essentially one large L shaped room wrapped around the bar and continues outside with under cover Pool Table and also an outdoor bar and drinking area which is opened up for events etc. There is also a large grassed area and childrens play area and equipment. Really well set up for families to come and enjoy. There is always a couple of decent ales on draught which seem to have a good turnover being changed very regularly so you always know your going to get a fresh pint, (They are also open to requests for future ales) The usual draught offerings are also supported including Guinness, Carling, Thatchers Cider etc. They also have Westons Old Rosie on draught.
There are a couple of TV's in the Bar area usually showing a selection of whatever sport is required and for some matches etc there is also a large screen tards the back of the pub and tables close by to facilitate watching. The pub is rarely empty from mid afternoon onwards and theres always someone happy to pass the time with a chat or smalltalk. I find it a nice relaxing place to visit and if they did food I'd probably have no good reason to leave!! ▲ less
