I was recommended this pub via the AirBnB property I stayed at. And the recommendation was brilliant: this pub is actually a shop and pub and so if you arrive early enough, you can buy some of the local food which also appears in the pub menu. We arrived at 5.45pm and were told that food was not served until... More

Excellent food and well presented. Staff were helpful and attentive too. Only downside is that the floor had food all over it as we walked in near to our table which was a bit unpleasant, so that should have been dealt with - even if they were busy. This was probably due to a toddler who was just leaving as... More

Brought Mum here for an early Mothers day and they couldn't have been more friendlier ..the roast dinner was spot on, and those are the hardest to get right considering the prep required. It's a pretty little pub and they welcome dogs so I can't recommend it enough.

On a long (for us) cycle trip around parts of Isle of Wight we stopped at The Taverners for lunch. We've been here before and remembered how good it was, so had to come back. We weren't disappointed. The food here is excellent, can't fault it. It's expensive for drinks, but everywhere else seems to be too. The menu is... More

We always visit the Taverners each year when we visit the IOW and have introduced various friends to sample their delicious menu based on locally produced ingredients. It's hard to get past the macaroni cheese but the fish n chips are also fab.

Absolutely fabulous. The meals we all had were superb, and the quality of attention from the staff was wonderful. We loved it so much that we will be returning for my birthday too. Would highly recommend anyone to eat here. Thank you for a brilliant evening.

Quality food.Very lucky to get a table as most were reserved as we visited on Mothering Sunday.The Deli Borad was a mini delicious sandwich,chips and bowl of soup more than adequate.Though the wine a tad pricey.

The sign in the car park says "Welly boots and dogs welcome" but so is everyone! First evening of a short break on the IofW and we can only hope that the rest of the trip will be as good. Great food at a good price, very welcoming staff and a great atmosphere with lots of interesting things to look... More

Set in an attractive village location with a public car park a hundred yards or so away, this eating place was a gem ! We received a warm welcome and were shown immediately to the table I had reserved (by telephone). The menu and wine list were excellent, the service was great and the food and wine first class.
