Meal out with friends last Saturday night and we chose the Stags head as we have always had a good meal and found it value for money, unfortunately this was not the case and we were disappointed, starters were ok, main course my husband sent his back as it was cold (cold plates )and instead of replacing it it was...

Pleasant enough surroundings and friendly, welcoming staff. Nice enough starters but, oh the wait! We were shown the dessert menu a full 20 minutes before we had even had our main course. When the mains did arrive both the duck and the steak were well overcooked. Also, check the bill too, as we were billed for three drinks we never... More

Good quality food served on hot plates which to me matters a lot as I tend to judge a chef on how well the food is served. Beer is ok and the staff are friendly.

Hadn't been here for quite a while and had heard mixed reviews, Anyway, we were quite pleased with the evening overall. Bar staff were also dealing with a funeral and rushed off their feet. They were still very polite but obviously a little slow in serving. Doubt this is the case as a rule We went through to the restaurant... More

On the 26th January I attended a special Birthday Celebration with about 30 other people. We had time before the meal to have a drink and greet one another. We were not rushed in anyway. When we did sit down our first course came promptly. The waiters and waitreses were friendly,helpful and unobtrusive. I had the best and unusual prawn... More

A disappointing visit to the Stags Head for a Sunday Roast. Two of our party ordered the mixed meat roasts; the turkey and pork were really tasty but the rest of the meal was just "alright". The Yorkshire pudding was as flat as a pancake and the stuffing ball was over cooked and shrunken. Vegetables were parsnips, greens (very watery)... More

Visited Sunday for 1st time after recommendation, as there was a small group of us we had pre-ordered about 10 days before our planned visit. Although the staff were very friendly, the service was very slow, we were shown to our table and foolishly expected our first course to be served almost immediately, after almost an hour we had to...

On first appearances this place has everything required for a quiet family meal, warm cosy pub atmosphere, extremely friendly staff and plenty to choose from on the menu. Sadly after that it's all downhill if you decide to order anything other than traditional pub grub such as steak or pie as the a-la-carte menu offers a wide range of choice... More
