Had dinner with four friends, food was good, nothing special. Service was poor. Watch out for the cancellation policy on a near empty night we were penalised for having notified revised numbers more than 48-hours in advance. I wouldn't recommend it, there are better places to go.

Went for lunch with family members, chose the Christmas menu. I have often been disappointed with Christmas menus, bland and mass catered. Place was busy but they coped very well. Place was busy but they managed it very well. Nice location and venue. Well cooked food, fresh veg, plenty of it. Wine a bit pricey but nice. Service was excellent.... More

The place is nice but vas very disappointed when I ask for a gluten free and dairy free option for my kids and was told "fish and chips" but got something that looked like hospital food. Boiled peas and new potatoes with some very very white boiled fish. As an adult with the same restrictions I had a steak which... More

Took advantage of the £10 supper deal on a cold Thursday night - had a great meal, pork loin chop with mash and loads of veg. All delicious and the £10 included a glass of beer/wine/soft drink. Came out happy customers and delighted not to have to cook! Definitely worth the trip. Friendly staff, very helpful too.

I visited the Stag on the River during a trip to Surrey to visit some friends. The night we expected was one filled with beautiful food, flowing wine and a lovely setting. However, when we arrived, we received a disgruntled welcome from our server (who if I remember correctly was named Emily) who was too busy bossing around younger staff... More

Stopped in for a meal on our way to Portsmouth Ferry port as we had visited in the summer and had a really good meal. The staff are excellent and friendly - very good service. Food OK - not too much of a choice though - starter was very small for price and rather underwhelming - main courses were fine... More

We visited as highly recommended. Steak and mushroom pie was excellent. My wife's steak was as tough as old boots. However the staff went out of their way to address the issue and when we went to pay her meal was reduced by 50%. Lovely location, warm and embracing atmosphere with friendly and helpful staff.

2nd time we've been here for a 'mini break', lovely pub lunch (and beer), very comfortable night and hearty breakfast. I'm sure we'll be back again!

I have been here a couple of times now, for an organised company Christmas lunch. The food has always been very good and the staff attentive and professional. I would not hesitate to return here in the future.

A traditional English country inn, nicely updated, with letting rooms and a generous car park, nicely situated in Washing, so just off the A3 heading south towards Portsmouth. Spotlessly clean and very welcoming, the restaurant offers a fine selection of up scale pub food. The cooking is excellent and the service efficient. Food sensibly is served all day, so an... More
