The Taverners provides a very rustic pub restaurant on the Isle of Wight, using all local produce that is bought on the day, depending on what is available at the markets, from the farmers, or what has been hunted or caught and it is all cooked to order.
The meats are from island farmers, the fish is from local waters, the dairy is from local herds, the breads and pastries are baked daily and when the season allows, the vegetables come from the island as well. Not stopping there, a Taverners brew is also produced as well as seasonal drinks including vin d'orange, limoncello and mulled wine. Those who venture to the pub garden can spot the chefs picking from the vegetable patches and fruit trees for produce to go right into the food. The origin of the food can all be seen on a map, showing the distance the food has travelled to make it there to the kitchens that day.
The attached menu shows the 'Pub Favourites' only - see The Taverners website on the link provided for the specials menu, a children's menu, a wine list etc.
The Taverners not only provides true island food and drink to its pub, but also to its small pub shop, selling many of the products used in the pub kitchen along with many other island made products ranging from parmesan graters to bars of soap.
