We ordered the buttered fish, pasta and chicken snitchels and we were very happy with how well it was prepared, the atmosphere and quick service. Do recommend, very nice.

We visited this place while we were a bit hurried. As we brought our 8 months old son, they quickly placed a plaid on the floor, so he could play (and we could have gin tonic!). The staff was very nice and the food was...More

A great find! Great food and fantastic service. Montagu was particularly quiet this evening, hardly any restaurants were open. Thankfully Ye Olde Tavern was open and cooking delicious food. Would eat here again for sure!
