My first and last visit yesterday. I ordered a strawberry milkshake that was tasteless and mostly cream. My scrambled egg was cold, watery and the toasted bread tasted stale. I didn't eat anything and the staff took my plate away without asking why I hadn't touched my food. The restaurant as a whole appeared filthy with food left on chairs... More

Supposedly the best breakfast in Liverpool. However, since the Tavern has got more popular, the quality has dropped substantially! It is unfortunate as it used to be a lovely place. However, now you sit down, your food is served to you within minutes and is just look-warm/cold! It is obvious the food has been precooked and kept under a warmer.... More

Absolutely love the breakfast here, the portions are big and the food has always been really nice. There are a variety of vegetarian options too.

Do you remember the olden days when you had the joy of discovering a wonderful place to eat that no one else knew about? Sadly we've lost all of that with the joy that is Tripadvisor - you do the search, they tell you where's good and where's not, and off you trot. If I'd stumbled across this place in... More

Ok so after hearing this is one of of Liverpool's best places for breakfast, my boyfriend & I thought we should try it out. We do love a good breakfast & we probably go out for breakfast once/twice a week. We don't live to far from The Tavern & when we drive past we often see people queuing outside so... More

I can not function without a good breakfast so wish I could come here everyday!! There is so much to choose from I was spoilt for choice but went with a breakfast burger which I thought would give me all the breakfast elements without being too filling as really wanted a pancake stack too!! Really enjoyed the burger however it... More

Been here a few times now for breakfast and the place is always heaving. Staff have always been nothing short of amazing, however food leaves a little to be desired - definitely not 'the best breakfast in britain' but good value for money. worth a visit, just don't expect too much from the food!

Ate far too much food and I loved it. Been here several times as there's always something different on the menu that I want to try! Visited recently for dinner with my housemates and we tried out some of their cocktails, which were the average cocktails available anywhere but did the job! Despite the long waiting time on our food... More
