We visited here with my nephews and niece, they loved running around the large beer garden. While the adults can relax and enjoy some nice drinks didn't eat on this occasion but will have to come back

The Stags Head is under new management, and we now serve locally sourced, fresh 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 food. We serve from5pm until 930pm Tuesday to Friday, and Saturday with a carvery on a Sunday from 12pm until 6pm (service hours subject to change). We recommend booking as we do get very busy and have limited seating. We also boast a function suite for upto 70 people - we have buffet menus which can be tailored to suit your needs and can cater for most events. Alongside the function suite, our cathedral restaurant can hold upto 40 people for smaller events.
