This is a very busy country pub. Staff accommodating but rushed off their feet. The food was good the vegetable harder than al dente but edible. Starter ans sweet selection good. Has a large car park and large garden. Beer and spirit selection good.

Thanks for your review. With two staff ringing in sick on Sunday as you suggest we struggled to meet with demand. A lot of non booked tables and people telling us fibs. That is another story. The young man works in the kitchen normally and...More

Have been several times to the Stag and it’s always been good. The staff are very attentive and the food is good and well priced. There’s a reasonable range of beers.
