Lovely staff and a warm welcome. Outside area very pretty. Recommend lamb shank and sauce for steaks. Corkage fees very reasonable - 15R. Charming.

Ye Olde Tavern had at the time of our visit a limited menu due to training of new staff in the kitchen and waiters. We expected to be irritated by this, but no worries. Fillet and fish were quickly served and of high cq good quality. Service friendly (brother of owner and junior waitress with spectacles). Unfortunately the Pinotage was out of stock. Quality of vegetables could be increased. Lots of succes to these guys!

Akexander thank you for writing such a lovely review - it has been a very trying time over the past couple of weeks and now finally we are back on track with a full complement of new staff - yes we will have a few glitches which is to be expected but we are really working hard in every aspect to make all our diners feel at home and enjoy their experience of dining with us. Happy to note that you enjoyed your food, the service and again thank you for putting it in writing - much appreciated!

We enjoyed our meal at Ye Olde tavern with our adult kids. The food was delicious and tasty and the service outstanding. Price of food is very good for the quality compared to other similar restaurants. Ambiance of the restaurant is cosy.

Very nice restaurant with a beautiful back garden . The food was excellent , the menu had everything ! But they were out of stock on many of the wines we selected. And this is in the midle of the wine district ! Funny .....
But absolutely a place to eat, and with kids as well as they had a kid menu..

A very pleasant restaurant with some good old favourites to choose from However I have always maintained that quality can sometimes suffer because of the vast number of dishes on the menu and I certainly felt this was the case My Beef and Ale pie was good but the chips looked tired and the Spinach was very average There are better places in Montagu
