I have been in twice with my friends for an impromptu meet up after work. I was impressed with the food, the servings are large, so ask for a doggie bag which they are more than happy to provide. The staff have been more than...More

Good kids menu with gluten free options but no real atmosphere. OK to pop in occasionally after taking kids to nearby Stoneham Park but I certainly wouldn't go out of my way to visit it. Toilets "OK".

They seem to have switched out the vacuous youth for a slightly older more engaged bunch. Much better

A little late on this review but we visited The Stoneham on a bank holiday last year. The decor was very cute and at the time there was a lot of hunting and flowers indoors which looked lovely. The sun was shining and the place...More

This was my first visit for my sisters birthday meal. We arrived at 7pm and ordered by quarter past 7. We were still waiting for the food at quarter past 8. Not only was the waiting time extremely long considering it wasn't busy, the food...More

I've been to this pub a few times and it's nice, I wouldn't say it'd my favourite, but the food is pretty nicely priced and they serve some great food. It's a good pub for catching up with friends and would definitely come again soon.

Doubt that. It's not about busy. It's about the staff attitude, which is dreadful, and the sneering contempt if you complain, as we did, having not even got our drinks after waiting 45 minutes. Appalling place, horrible... More

The Stoneham is a stylish, family-friendly pub with an exciting new kitchen. We have a lovely garden, front sun terrace and a cool function room for parties. We pride ourselves on our food and have a range of daily specials. We recently launched out own smokehouse, smoking ingredients from garlic and cheeses to meats. Our standard menu is varied with a strong range of choices for vegetarians and carnivores alike. We also offer our famous pizzas in gluten free versions. On Sunday we offer a brilliant range of roasts highlighting local and quality ingredients.
