'The Tavern' was a wonderful way to mark the end of a few days spent in Westport. The place itself was very cosy and welcoming...but the food was the star player. I had a delicious soup of the day followed by a spectacular fish platter. My friend had the potted minced lamb and goats cheese salad - the only thing that disappointed was the brown bread served with it, which was very bland and didn't live up to how good it looked. The service was a little absent sometimes, but whenever the waitresses were present they were very good. I would definitely return if in the area and recommend it to others.

After a recent hike up Croagh Patrick we were ready for pretty much anything as long as it was food... The tavern was one of those positive surprises that made our day just perfect to the extent that we didnt' mind the long trip home across to Kildare later on! The service was swift, well informed and friendly. The food was without exception great and straight forward. Although we ordered humble bar food, i.e. Lasagne, soup, fish and chips with a side salad, the portions were very generous, everything made from proper fresh ingredients and presented with imagination and taste. Oh, and the oysters were delicious! Our table was behind the bar and a bit dark, not exactly cosy but ok. One chap at the next table was disappointed about the tea selection (no PG Tips!). Overall a very good eating out experience for all the family with excellent value for money!

I recently stayed near The Tavern for a holiday and ate here 3 times. Each time it seemed to be a hive of activity in the evenings and mainly a food establishment rather than a drinking pub, family friendly also! They had a extensive standard menu and a big selection of daily specials (they didnt change too much over the week though!). I ordered the beef lasange on 2 occasions which came with side salad and chips. It was a very big side so great value for money at €15. However, perhaps the chips should have been homemade rather than fried from frozen. This dish was delicious and would recommend it to any lasange lovers! The other time, I ordered the seafood pie sicne the Tavern has won a bundle of awards for their seafood. The pie came with a side salad and the fish included cod, salmon, prawns and mussels. This too was delicious in a creamy white wine sauce, topped with mash. Personally, I thought another handful of seafood would have made it perfect, maybe some calamari too! But I would defintely order this again. Other members of my group order steak, battered fish and the grilled chicken dishes. They were satisfied with the food but did not seem to enjoy it as much as I did! The service was 2 occassions was only average. Our table had 2-3 different staff serving us each time. I prefer 1 table, 1 staff member idea. They were not very friendly and didn't check back to see if we were happy with the food. On the 3rd visit, a member of management happened to serve us and she was very friendly and chatty. If back in the locality, I would definitely eat here again and would recommend it to others.
