Went last night with my sister. The starters were amazing. Especially enjoyed the Tartare, Sicilian red prawns. For mains she had the USDA Prime Fillet, which she loved and I had the Halibut steak. We both agreed that the Halibut was overcooked and very dry. Disappointing for a fish focussed restaurant. Nice atmosphere, but pricey for the food received.

Lovely place, good atmosphere. Food was excellent. I had filet steak that melted in the mouth . So delicious . Criticisms ? sticker shock ! It was quite pricey . Also as we left my husband and i both said good ye to the person on the reception desk and they said nothing . Seemed a bit rude, especially after a pricey meal and given the times we live in . I would have expected a restaurant staff to be bit more friendly on departure .

The menu is appealing and we found the ceviche & tuna tartare exceptional. The pasta was a little heavy and sole good but outrageously expensive (large fish for 2 £80) and as a fish of the day no price was mentioned. The wine list is also very highly priced. If the overall cost was more reasonable we would be regular customers!

It is a great menu, with lots of fresh options. However, the waiter confused the order even though we repeated it three times. Additionally, we are wanting to go out to local restaurants and support them, but it is not easy when no one follows Covid-19 guidelines. The tables were too close too each other, and some of the waiters were not wearing nay masks at all.

Hi Tamara, Thank you very much for coming to Wild Tavern. I am glad you enjoyed the food. I'm sorry to hear the waiter muddled your order. 3 times. Not good. Please accept our apologies. In regards to Covid-19 regulations. All our waiters, who are not exempt, wear masks. Without fail, or they are unable to work. We do use very discreet clear reverse visors which actually appear to make it seem like there is no mask at all. All tables also fit to the guidelines. I'm sorry you saw otherwise.

This was our second visit - the first having been an excellent experience. This time we were disappointed. It was very noisy, the service ok but not superb, and our main course of halibut over-cooked. We pointed this out to the waiter and expected that at least someone from the management team there at the time would come over to apologise or at least discuss.

Hi Susannah, I'm really sorry to hear about your second visit being so disappointing. It's not acceptable in our eyes. I was wondering if you could drop me an email on crispy@wildtavern.co.uk, so I can look to make amends. Thank you in advance. Crispin

The prices are just too high for some pretty average fare. Wine list is too pricey. Doesn’t therefore help when one is billed £150 for a £140 bottle and no apology issued when this was pointed out.

Hi there, I am very sorry about the price issue with the bottle of wine. Sadly the till was clearly not up to date on this item. I have gone through the list and made sure no other errors can occur. Also very sorry you felt the food was pretty average. I was wondering if you might email me on crispy@wildtavern.co.uk to elaborate, so we can look into this further. Thanks in advance and sincerest apologies again for the price discrepancy. Regards Crispin Sugden GM Wild Tavern

Ate outside. Dive bomber by wasps and flies. Staff had no idea what to do ...like have a wasp trap or move us etc. They aren't very sympathetic. The food is v good but very heavy fare...meat and fish..the square is lovely and inside is very charming. The staff are a bit variable some v obliging others a bit too Nyet Nyet. Have been going for a while..and it is good but they need to be a bit more helpful.

I was a bit disappointed in the social distancing measures (or lack thereof) undertaken by the restaurant post reopening. No face coverings on staff. Crowds of people gathered by the bar, and I was escorted right into the middle of the melee on the way to my table. Despite the opening of a few outdoor tables which is nice, the indoor area seemed pretty crowded. I will probably nor return until after the psndemic recedes.

Great place lovely food, but the waitress was lacking in knowledge about a few things. She didn’t seem to grasp what we were saying language was definitely a barrier and to have to speak loudly and slowly isn’t only patronising to her it’s disruptive to other diners so suggest more training especially with a £500 bill I expect way better in terms of service.

Overall the experience was ok, the food is not bad, salads were fine, but i ordered medium well steak and i got it medium or almost rare, as well as my sister ordered well done she got it medium well instead. However, the price of the food was not worth it at all. I honestly would never visit again.

Really nice atmosphere and the staff was very kind and fairly attentive. One server just came out and dropped food off a little carelessly and didn't say anything at all....so that was a little bit of an I-Don't-Care attitude that wasn't appreciated. The food is good but I don't think it quite justifies the price when compared to other restaurants in the same league.

We live in the neighborhood and were happy to try out this new spot. The ambiance, decor and service are lovely! Unfortunately, the food is mediocre and quite pricey. It was a slow night and our food came out mostly cold. That seemed odd to me since we were one of the only tables. A bernaise sauce served with a filet appeared cold and from a jar. I mentioned it to staff just to offer a new establishment honest feedback and they essentially said they were surprised to hear that. They also said their sauce is served not hot nor cold but just right at room temperature. The place is beautiful. I hope the menu adjusts some so they stick around.
