The Stags Head is under new management, and we now serve locally sourced, fresh, heart home cooked food. We have two menus: daylight for the classics and lunchtime offerings and candlelight for the more adventurous and evening diners. We also have a daily specials board to showcase some of our delicious food. We serve food from 12pm to 2pm and then 5pm until 9pm Tuesday to Friday and 12pm to 9pm on Saturday with a Carvery on a Sunday from 12pm until 7pm (service hours subject to change).

I'll keep it short & sweetish. Lovely barmaid who was extremely helpful but the clientele, rough to say the least. Give it a wide berth & the barmaid should look for another job as she deserves much better.
