Had a lovely drink and meal in the Stag and Thistle (pre-new restrictions!). All staff followed procedures and were attentive. The atmosphere was pleasant and noise was at a minimum. Food was delicious and there are lots of nice areas to eat and drink. Will definitely be back in the hopefully not too distant future.

Love outside here. Plenty of space between tables. Feel safe. Big brollies when it rains. Veg tempura and hummus fries amazing.
Staff friendly without being pushy.
S and T always our first choice in south side.

Ok but let down by glacial service - over an hour from arrival to receiving the first course. Then they forgot a drinks order.

They were nice, chatty, apologetic sometimes. And the food is great. The cheesecake is next level.

It just took sooo long :(

for the circumstances they did their best and were good - tempura batter was disappointing and chips were salty but those were my only gripes and even then they are just minor things - the burger itself impressed me as did the amount of meat in the steak pie!

Food was nice, but over priced, menus were grubby as were the seats, toilets were appalling and badly needed painted, and holes in the wall. Food was very over priced compared to other places.

The safety measures put in place were fine and felt safe in the venue. The food was very good.

Loads of outside space. It poured while we were there and not a drop touched us. Was first place I went after lockdown with son and partner, feeling apprehensive. LOVED it and is now always first choice.

If you are going for just drinks it is great. Food was not great and don’t get people who say it was good. Chicken sandwich very bland but fries good. Dessert was dreadful - microwaved waffle (Inedible), dry and bland toffee pudding, both drowned in sickly sweet syrup and blah ice cream. We complained but they didn’t bother taking off bill. Also, PLEASE STOP SERVING FOOD ON PLANKS AND SLATES. Especially planks that wobble, and runny dessert on a slate?!? Stop it.

Pure chaotic.
A total shambles.
No wine list...
Waited ages for a menu. 45 mins.
Food fair.
Won’t be back.
Crap.

We ordered from the tapas type menu and the food was incredible! Booking is essential to get a table as they can only accommodate so many people for food at one time. Can't wait to return

I had a burger, my wife fish and chips.
The burger was served on wooden board which I did not like.
How clean can the board be??
The fish was glazed with thick, greasy batter. The batter was scraped off and not eaten. The plate was left with a layer of grease.
The thin cut chips were cold and hard.
Overall, not great.
