We are Andy and Heather McIlravey, married couple originally from Dundee. Between us we run the bar and restaurant with the help of very competent full and part time staff.
New to the licensed trade when we took over in 2004, we are now well established in our careers and it is fair to say that we have earned a good reputation in the local area for both our excellent home cooked food and our welcoming and cosy bar atmosphere.
We are both dedicated “foodies” and self taught in our own specialities. Andy is our licensee and is in charge of the bar and the provision of outside bar facilities for functions. Heather is in charge of the food side of the business, although Andy does handle his specialities of curry, pate and a rather special sticky toffee pudding!
We live above the premises with our Westie’s Hamish and Maddy, who are regulars in the bar after food service finishes. So, yes, we are a very dog friendly bar, but unfortunately not in the restaurant, food is still served in the bar though.
We hope to welcome you to the Tavern at some point in the not too distant future.
Hamish and Maddy
