It was with some amazement that we heard in 2019 the Taverners had been taken over by Tim and Emma Foster, owners of Ryde’s celebrated seafood restaurant Three Buoys (now the home of the Cadet Beach Club). The question everybody wanted answering was what would happen now?
It was a bold move, as both venues had solid reputations but with quite different offerings. Would the Three Buoys fancy small plates disappoint the pub-goers expecting The Taverners’ traditional hearty pub grub? Perhaps introducing a few of its famous seafood dishes might be just the filip the land-locked pub menu might need?
