My wife and I attended a function last night and it was fantastic. The finger food was incredible, probably the best I have ever had. The service from waitresses and bar staff was brilliant. All were very friendly and efficient. Highly recommended

We have been the last two weeks for the pizza on a Monday night. Great value. Excellent pizza. Crunchy crust, nice range and amount of toppings. Laid back atmosphere. Friendly service. Corn bread also excellent!!

As we were Staying at 'Sunnyside', we decided to eat in. A good decision, as the food was well cooked, the service was not too slow and by the number of other diners in the Tavern, it is a popular local eatery.

Though the room was little it had everything i needed and was very comfortable. The food in the pub was excellent and the staff were very accommodating. Though above the pub, it was quiet and all secure. I'd stay again 👌🏻
