Be warned, The Tavern’s menu is pretty extensive – choosing could be your biggest challenge. Rest assured you won’t go too far wrong though. The Wild Atlantic Way is well represented here, with the freshest of Atlantic fish and plenty of produce from the ever growing number of local producers. Chef Myles O’Brien is partial to a bit of foraging too, so you never know what will pop up on the Specials Board.

Always nice to visit the Tavern. The menu has expanded since first opening up after Covid lockdown. Great eating spot when venturing out beyond Westport.

Love the Tavern in general. Have eaten here a few times and have never been disappointed. There were four of us and three meals were good. However, I ordered tagliatelle carbonara and I can honestly say that it was the worst carbonara I have ever eaten. It tasted like something that had come out of a pre cooked processed box

Fantastic evening here. The food, the service, everything was brilliant.
They even gave us a lift home because the taxi would have been awhile. Can't ask for anything more. Love going back.

Our table was lovely (in the snug) and the server was very efficient. The food was very good and we were not rushed at all. Desserts were delicious and the coffee finished the meal off very nicely. Thank you.

We returned after being here last year for a fabulous meal, food was very rushed, only 4 minutes between our plates from starters been taken and mains served which resulted in neither of us finishing our mains, was offered dessert and we asked could we wait a while which was no problem but waitress came back again about 10 minutes later and asked if we wanted desserts, we were still too full so declined and left

Really warm and safe welcome. Appropriately prepared for dining in covid-times. The food is simply outstanding. We had the local mussels and beef special. I only wish we had space for dessert! A reason to return to this part of the west of Ireland.
