We have dined here several times, early evening with freinds, the food is always very good, with a varied menu, the staff are attentive, and the waitresses are helpful and eager to please, they are always very happy to adjust the menu to accommodate fussy eaters! Something not always found in pub dining.

Very nice food : British mainly and some quite nice Continental choice. The staff was nice, fairly quick and very helpful. The door at the rear was regularly used by customers arriving from there, and the very cold draft was rather unpleasant. So if you want to enjoy the good food, choose a table away from that door !

Came in just for a beer after shopping. I am not fussy but is stunk of fish so I went to the beer garden. Can't rave, but I was curious.

The main course came in good time (3 x roasts and fish & chips), was very nice and had no complaints, it's when dessert came (eventually) we had issues. We ordered 2 x crumble's, the brownie and a...

We have visited the Stagg on a number of occasions in recent years and were always impressed by the food. We returned there last week and the food was awful. We will not be going back.

We stopped off at The Stag after a long day traveling, the atmosphere was lovely as my hubby and myself ordered drinks and got a table etc. I had the Thai green curry and I could not find one fault! It was absolutely delicious and I was more than happy when we left! My husband thoroughly enjoyed his meal also... More

Although staying in another hotel locally, being a CAMRA supporter , I wanted to try their ale and decided to eat there with my Wife. The beer was good and served well. The food was a totally different experience , I ordered a starter portion of mussels, of which 3 were not opened, about 15% of the portion. My Wife... More
