We were so lucky to get a window table with a fine view of the Bay so lunch was off to a good start ! The drinks waiter took our order and returned promptly with our drinks. Lunch itself was lovely and so enjoyable in such a relaxing atmosphere. It was busy and is obviously a popular eatery. We all... More

Went with family. The choice on the menu was good, not too many dishes to confuse. There were several specials on the board. The staff were very helpful, polite and professional. We had a good meal, in a good atmosphere. The pub has plenty of parking, please note there are several steps upto the door. Would have been a five... More

Had a lovely meal with family today, no rush and service really good, nothing was to much trouble, big portions so take doggy bag if you find it to much, (plus the 10th person was free)...

We visited the Houmet Tavern three times, once for a meal and drink and twice for a drink. The meal was bland and tasteless. The first beer was very nice, the second time they had no draft beer and the third time the only beer was not very nice. Disappointing.

Great choice of beers and to watch football but sadly the restaurant menu very expensive to previous visits over 23 years. More expensive than hotel nearby. Will still use on future visits for beers / sport but not for eating.

What a find with no pubs on this island! Had two lunches here and such good friendly service. Food was good, big portions so think twice about a starter!

Called in for lunch on a round tour of the island towards the end of our holiday. I think we would have gone back again for more meals had we discovered it earlier in our stay. There was a good selection of food on the menu and it was home cooked food so worth the wait for it to appear.... More

The Houmet Tavern sits proudly above the road looking out across the stunning Grande Havre Bay. You can sit inside or outside in the Conservatory which has a sliding roof. A really good variety of well cooked food, decent wine and refreshing beers. The service is friendly an efficient. We will be back.

Thank Terry B
