Having eaten at the Tavern for several years now, food quality has definitely deteriorated since it became very popular in Liverpool. Clearly served by quantity rather than quality, the food was cold and accompanied with slow service. Had to wait forever to ask for the...More

This one my favourite places to get breakfast. Me and girlfriend used to go regularly when we used to live closer to it. Have noticed recently though it's popular as increased greatly and the service has become a lot slower.

The Mexican Tavern was always an old fave when my wife was a student at Liverpool Uni, and we have fond memories of Sunday breakfasts here, nursing hangovers with black coffee! Being in the area, we couldn't resist dropping in with the kids for our...More

The decor is a bit outdated and dark, but this is made up for by good, tasty pub-type food and friendly staff. We had a gourmet hamburger and Cajun chicken (perhaps a tad too spicy, but ok for me). Lots on the plate. Good (if...More

Twice we have been to the 'famous' Tavern Co. On the first visit I found a hair in my fruit salad but got a replacement and the item removed from the bill so customer service on that occassion was good but let's face it hair...More

I'd disagree with the previous comment about the quality I've only been twice as I don't live in the area if I did I would be there more often.
Why is it that every time I come in here at the weekend and ask for a baileys Oreo cocktail after eleven o' clock they won't do it for me? Yet when the guy who owns it is I can get as many as I want. Your losing money for the owner
