The food is average, and I would not rush back to eat there. However, it was a group event so it was a limited menu. The service was great and the Ghost story fun.

Thank you for the review. You will have to come back and visit us outside of the group setting so that you can order off the full menu. We would love to have you visit with us again!

The wife and I stopped here for lunch the other day. Neither of us had heard of the place before coming up, so this was just our try. Boy were we surprised.

The meatloaf plate was very good, obviously not using all beef int he meatloaf, having some game meat taste with it. This just made it all the more delicious. I had the bangers and mash, and it was really very good in taste.

The gravy used was a basic quick make, but it did not diminish the flavor of the food at all.

The staff was friendly, helpful.

Will likely visit here again on our way back through.

The tavern definitely has that old-world feel to it. The lights are dimmed but not so much that you can't move around safely. The costumes of the servers are exceptional. We sat at the bar and received perfect service. We ordered the Bangers & Mash (my husband) and the Meatloaf (for me). The food does not disappoint. It's rich in flavor, filling, and needed no salt or pepper for taste. Best of all, they weren't huge portions like you see at most restaurants these days. Who wants to eat half their meal and then have to either throw out the other half, or put it in their car to sit for the rest of the trip?

We'll be eating here again when we return in June '18!

My husband and I took our mothers out for a unique dinner experience. The staff was friendly and attentive and the food was absolutely delicious. Make reservations in the dining room as it is limited seating. Will definitely go back.
