    We had a very pleasant experience at the phoenix tavern the staff very helpful. The food was excellent except for my meat was cold I think it had been left to rest to long. For that only it's 8 out of 10. We will return again.

    We had a beautiful Sunday lunch the food was lovely the only thing i can say is that the menu was very limited for meat options as no chicken (only in the children menu) lamb or gammon but we had no complaints on what we had great value and attentive staff thank you x

    So glad I booked The Phoenix for a big family reunion after 3 years separated by the Atlantic and then pandemic. Super friendly staff who provide great service. We all had really good roast dinners with all the trimmings. we were very happy with the table we were given and the discrete but present measures to limit risk of infection. All staff wore masks, we felt it was very clean and well run and there was enough space between us and neighbouring tables. We would all recommend The Phoenix for good food, service and setting.

    We enjoyed a lovely evening at The Phoenix Tavern. The food is exceptional: inventive, unusual recipes, using ingredients that seldom feature on a pub menu and well presented. All the staff are knowledgeable and the entire team works hard to ensure everyone is well looked-after without being overbearing. Congratulations to the kitchen for a memorable foodie experience!

    I don't feel the revamp of this pub has hit the right audience. Limited, expensive menu. No lunchtime staples. The beef panini was so grissly, I had to spit food out which was gross. Bread was crumbly & seemed mass produced, not quality. Very little salad & nothing on main menu appealed. The place was pretty empty for a Friday lunch on market day. What is the aim here?

    I ordered the turbot , the portion was very very small, on conversing with the owner I was lectured that he had paid £90 for the Turbot, the charge of 24-50 was not realistic, I will never return to the Phoniex pub

    Well-spaced tables in the beautifully refurbished interior. Staff welcoming and attentive. Good food beautifully presented and good choice of wines etc. Did struggle to hear our companion talking owing to being sat next to a speaker with music playing - volume could be a bit lower - and voices of other diners. Overall a good experience and will happily dine here again.

    Super tasty food and plentiful too. We were too full for dessert! Between four of us, we thoroughly enjoyed duck, cod, mussels and aubergine. The belly pork was good but a little too sweet.

    Once again we had an amazing Sunday lunch at The Phoenix Tavern can’t recommend it highly enough. We were in front of an open fire with friends who hadn’t been before & they were as equally impressed. In fact, we heard at least 4 groups being turned away because they hadn’t booked!!

    Food, location and service was so, so much better than I had anticipated from looking at the web. Coinsiderate service from front of house to the chef. Back garden was a pleasure to sit in and the inside seating looked good too. Delicious food - we did four different choices and good drinks.

    Roast beef was really delicious, there was a good selection of vegetables but only a few carrots served, perhaps an offering of more would be better as some ( like me) don’t like every vegetable. Food was hot and tasty. Service was impeccable, friendly staff. The pub was clean and tidy. We will definitely visit again.
