The food here is divine. We had the pate, goat cheese and beetroot tarts, pear and rocket salad, chorizo sausage rolls, lamb cutlets, and the bread. Plus a few bowls of the bad boy chips. Could not fault at all. The rose and over the ditch white wine were perfect with all dishes. Service was also wonderful. Definitely will return.

We had the ciabatta & olives to start with we both enjoyed that. We had ordered the lamb cutlets (4) to share, and a rocket salad for my partner and chips for me... More

We stopped here for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The food was well prepared and absolutely delicious. The staff were friendly and accommodating. The chef Katy came out for a chat and even gave us an extra serving of chips on the house. How good is that!!! Well worth a visit.

We visited with our 3 kids (under 8 years old). The food was delicious, especially the beetroot tart and "chocolate nemesis cake". Yum! The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Highly recommended. Looking forward to our next visit already.

The food at Tatler is really something special - fresh, tasty and beautifully prepared. There's a nice friendly, casual atmosphere and I felt very comfortable there as a solo diner. This is a restaurant with real personality. The waitstaff are lovely young people and the chef, Katy, came to each table to chat with guests which was a lovely touch.... More
