user reviews of Tavern Bar, Alltami

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

I had been eyeing this place up for a couple of years when passing but had never had the opportunity to call in until recently. It looks modern and welcoming from the road, and rather inviting!

Well unfortunately it was a bit of a disappointment. I visited at around 2pm on a Thursday lunch time and it was dead. Looks to be very much food focussed but there was just nobody in apart from the guy at the bar (which feels more like a reception area for the restaurant) and the guy in the kitchen (who didn't have anything to do).

There were two ales on offer - Tavern's Tipple and Alltami Gold. Always a bit cautious of house ales as they are often something else rebadged, so went for the Gold, a 4.1% ale. It was overly bitter, and I suspect in poor condition, cloudy and a slight vinegary taste. But by this time I had made my retreat to the beer garden - thankfully it was a sunny day so meant I could escape the awkward lack of atmosphere inside. It seems there are two bits to the beer garden. The bit nearest the pub, which is where you naturally end up, looks a bit unloved. Consisted of 3 tables undercover and 1 in the sun. Moss on the tarmac floor, weeds growing on cracked concrete near the building, drain hopper full of weeds - looks a bit neglected compared to the smartness of the interior. Only on leaving did I notice a raised grassed area up some steps with several picnic tables and a parasol. This, presumably is *the* beer garden and I was probably sat in a smoking area. But it still looked shabby.

Toilets were less than impressive. There was a rusty old bin in there. Liquid on the floor under the urinal - which is odd considering there were no customers in.

It may be that it is a lovely place for food if you dine inside the modern interior, but same the same attention to detail is not carried through to the toilets and outdoor area, and the poor quality of the ale was obviously a big disappointment.
