Can recommend the venison pizza and spicy wings (blue cheese dipping sauce is amazing!) Really cool fitout and vibes, good music, great chill staff. Thoroughly recommend for a chill rustic pint.

We stopped at the tavern in the afternoon for a beer and went back for dinner that evening. They were only serving pizza but the meat pizza with black olives and red onions was very good.
