Table reserved and ready on arrival. Immediately served by very helpful staff and every need met. Not interfered with by staff until each course finished and nothing seemed too much when requested. One minor point, pepper added to meal which a bit strong for some diners. Pointed out and told it would be rectified. A thouroghly enjoyable meal, lovely atmosphere and very helpful staff. Would go back and dine again without hesitation.
Thank you.

Service was quick and friendly, great value with the Groupon voucher. Meal was ok for the money. Roast potatoes weren’t very nice, so I would recommend changing these. Other than that very nice.

We went for their two steaks and a bottle of wine for £25 offer. Well worth it. Nice steaks well cooked, and they were out of house wine so we got the run of the menu which was a little bonus.
Seems they have a nice rotation of beers too and the interior is nice.
Attentive staff too.

This pub has been turned around from the previous versions it has been over the years and is a great place to have a couple of drinks at any time of the day. Friendly staff, nice atmosphere, nice food.

Afternoon tea was nice for the nice. Disappointed that the presentation was not as noce as the stand was broken so we had it on plates.
No butter in the sandwiches... so very dry sandwiches that just fell apart :(

Second time to this pub / restaurant and was not quite as good. The service was quite slow - my
Food was lovely but my friend’s steak was not as extremely fatty. All in all though good value for money and we would go back again.

Tables was dirty and uneven but the staff came over to help, we waited a long time but that was due to good being cooked to order, vegetables was lovely however the beef was ridiculously tough when asked how things was by staff member he said he would speak to the butchers about their cuts of meat? I personally felt it was due to being overcooked.

Food looked better in the photos than the plate!
also cant to the table warm, not hot... clearly been sitting under the lamp for a while...

The waitress wasn't informed with necessities i.e. the soup of the day and asked about the camembert for starter (not included in the 2 course special) had to go away to find out if you could get it normally.

I'll go elsewhere next time.

We decided to go elsewhere for dessert.

We regularly use the Stag and have had some great meals...however had to wait over an hour for our food but the restaurant was over booked. Guests seated after us received their meal first...not impressed....we were forgotten as they were just too busy.

Waited an hour for our meal to arrived - we asked the staff twice where our meal was - place was pretty empty so really no excuse. Then the steak arrived first, chips followed 3-4 minutes later. Peppercorn sauce was milk with pepper added. Staff were pleasant but didnt explain what was happening other than 'our food is freshly cooked'. We had pre-paid with a Groupon voucher and expected good food with a nice atmosphere prior to our booked show however totally disappointed from start to finish. I would not recommend The Stag to anyone.

We visited for mothers day having been there before Christmas for the first time. On our last visit we were very happy with everything hence rebooking however following our visit last weekend we will categorically not be returning.
Initially our booking time was changed which was ok, we had to come earlier as the restaurant had overbooked but we accepted this.
The rest of the experience was awful, the food was tasteless, lacked any flavour, over cooked and unacceptable in my eyes. We were left waiting almost an hour for mains, which was unacceptable considering we had two young children who were starving and becoming increasingly impatient. When we questioned the staff as to what was happening they said they would enquire with the kitchen but no one came back to us until the food arrived about 15mins.
We noticed at this point we had seen no food come out of the kitchen in ages and the 6/7 tables in our viewpoint were all waiting for food.
I did not want to make a fuss as I didn't want to ruin the whole day for the family however when paying i mentioned this to the staff who didn't really care. I categorically told them how unhappy I was with the service, the food and everything else and only had a response of " I am sorry you feel this way madam" - this is not good enough, I will not be returning and will not recommend this to anyone. I understand mothers day is a busy day and the restaurant will be at capacity however whilst this may excuse the late food , it does not excuse that what we had was terrible quality nor does it excuse that we were not updated that they were running late or even offered an apology. Such a pity!!
