This free house which has been trading for nearly three decades is the pride and joy of Jane and her team. With a warm welcome for morning coffees and a cake served from 11am, a more formal meal or quick lunch or a specialty afternoon tea, you will always find the staff willing to help. The Tavernfayre does get very busy, even during weekday lunches so booking is recommended Monday through to Friday. Bookings are not taken on Saturday and Sunday but you are asked to put your name down at reception so get there early! The menu offers an outstanding mix of speciality sandwiches and Tavernfayre's infamous burgers. Or try Chef Nick's specials -- choose from hake with giant couscous, green lentil salad with pesto dressing or French trimmed chicken with roasted garlic and red wine. A small selection of lighter meals are available up until 6pm. Cask ales are a special feature with 3 locally brewed ales available and a generous CAMRA discount. For an ideal accompaniment the new 'Pies and Plates' are akin to tapas with a British twist and are only available in the bar. Sample the homemade pork pie, pates and pickles alongside your pint.
