Great little pub, warm welcome & great food
Oct 2021 • Couples
So pleased we wandered into the Taggy Man on a whim after exasperating (& being disappointed with) all other luncheon options in Kirby whilst in town for the week on business! The welcome was warm and friendly and the various pies the family and I all tried out were delicious. I almost don’t want to write a positive review for fear of others discovering this lovely little pub and finding on our next visit we can’t get a seat! We’ll definitely be back!

The greatest warm welcome for all 👣 🐾🐾

We were looking for somewhere warm and cosy to warm up the dog and enjoy a post walk (very wet) pint. A roaring fire, great tasting beer and gravy bones on tap provided by the staff. Thank you for your warm welcome.

Disappointed
Nov 2021 • Couples
Thoroughly disappointed with the welcome and service. Please don’t state yourselves as being dog friendly if the staff working there frown and moan to one another about your dogs.

Shame, we were so looking forward to whiling away the hours in the pub. The decor is fabulous and loved the pineapple lights. But the welcome and the feeling we got, we almost felt chased away by the Taggy Man!

We are very sorry you were disappointed with your visit this time. We are very dog friendly as other reviews will show, however we do have rules in place for dogs as we need to ensure everyone’s visit is enjoyable and safe. Kind regards.

Such a lovely little find in Kirkby Stephen! Very welcoming pub, and also very dog friendly. Our spaniel was thoroughly spoilt with treats!
Lovely atmosphere and the best bit was the amazing food! Best pie I’ve had in a while!
Would recommend to anyone passing through the town! We’ll definitely be back!
Well done team.

Pleasant surprise at The Taggy Man
Sep 2021 • Friends
After walking 4 miles along the River Eden with the dogs, I had already sussed out the Taggy Man online and was encouraged by the reviews.

Walking through Kirkby Stephen I asked couple of locals at random for food recommendations and immediately they suggested The Taggy Man so off we went.

Pleasantly surprised by the welcoming atmosphere on entry and the three of us with two dogs settled in a corner table.

Presented with a tasty menu with a large range of tasty pies all served chips, peas and rich gravy. We selected chicken and mushroom pies and beef and Stilton which all arrived piping hot, and excellent value.

Chatty landlord / landlady who explained the change of name from The White Lion to The Taggy Man😎

Good range of beers and other drinks available.
So good to find a “real local” with proper hospitality - and wish them both a very successful future

Great little find
Aug 2021 • Family
Lovely staff, lovely little pub, clean, tidy, great atmosphere. Came in with 4 adults and 3 kids for dinner and were accommodated even though they were busy. Menu is limited to pies and pub grub, but that was the best thing about it, as they do their food fantastically well and lots of the ingredients in the pies are local. The choice of pies was extensive and the scampi came in an updated, modern version of a ‘basket’ meal, which my young daughter loved! My steak, mushroom and ale pie was so good and plenty of chips, peas and gravy to accompany. My husband said the ale was great too.

Children welcome until 7:30pm and no ‘kids’ menu so you order and pay for adult menu but our three had plenty to choose from and almost cleared their plates as the food was so good!

Thanks for a perfect end to our holiday in Waitby!

A warm welcome and good food
Aug 2021 • Friends
Lovely little bar in an otherwise dead town. Great service, good range of gins, and a warm welcome from your staff. We had pie for tea while in and it was delicious. Our only sticking point was that we tried to come back on a couple of different days and found you always closed, which seemed surprising for a pub in a tourist area in summer holidays. Perhaps we’ll get luckier next time.
