The Ailsa Tavern is a traditional community pub set in the beautiful suburb of St Margarets.
First opened in 1856, it still keeps many original features. It has a large public garden and is run as a community pub should be - welcoming, warm, friendly and family-oriented - a place where anyone can come to enjoy a day or evening.
Children are more than welcome during the day or early evening and with our selection of childrens games you will get the chance to relax and enjoy your visit to the Ailsa as well..! We also keep a selection of games for older children and adults behind the bar or you can test your brain power against our games machine or enjoy a game of darts with your friends.
Our well-kept range of real ales and fine chilled lagers are from the Country's oldest brewery, and we are always updating wine and spirit selections. So whether you are looking for some serious refreshment or just fancy a cup of our amazing Teapigs tea, our bar staff will be happy to steer you in the right direction.
Our food has a great local reputation and with unrestricted parking in all adjacent roads, it's the perfect venue for a eating out, whatever the occasion. Please check the Food and Drink page to view the current menu.
Reserve an area of the pub for your party for the exclusive use of you and your guests alone so you can enjoy each others company uninterrupted, while still being envolved in the overall atmosphere. If the booking incudes meals or buffet then this service is offered at no extra charge.
