Came with adults with learning disabilities. Wheelchair access is brilliant. We came before food was being served but was welcomed in with a smile. We found a seat in the amazing conservatory area. Food is amazing and great value for money. The children's meals are massive. Photo taken. We would definitely be back again. Thank you stag for great service... More

I visited The Stag with my family. We all booked rooms and had a great time. The welcome from Steve and the staff was very warm as usual. I have stayed here many times now. The food is good and a fair price. I am vegetarian and there is always plenty of choice. The rooms are spotless and warm which... More

The Stag in West Cowes was in great proximity to Thorness Bay, and we were incredibly pleased to discover the Stag when searching on Google for open restaurants at 7pm on the day of our arrival. The staff are extremely friendly, and I would thoroughly recommend the great value food, the portions sizes are generous for the price and the... More

Went here to watch the football on a Saturday lunch . Table booked although it was fairly quiet so we could have just turned up . Whitebait for starters was also really good .Homemade lasagne was excellent . Mushroom and halloumi burger in a brioche bun was also excellent but let down by frozen chips , such a shame .

Booked this hotel for our anniversary as it was supposed to be four star. Was greeted by the barman asking for our card details for a damage deposit which I found rather insulting. This isn't a cheap hotel so wasn't expecting them to think we were yobs. The room was a nice size but over the kitchen so the noises... More

Great menu and good wholesome food at very reasonable prices, Particular like the "small appetite" option, not too much on not small.

We had a family dinner here, whilst holidaying on the island in early August. We were made to feel very welcome by the owners Sian and Steve, who have been in charge for about a year, and who were clearly extremely passionate about creating an enjoyable dining experience. The menu was diverse with something for everyone, offering standard 'pub fare',... More

My husband and I went for lunch. It has had a refurbishment since I last went in many years ago and it is a really lovely pub/restaurant now. There were few other diners at this time. My husband, who is quite hard to please when dining out, chose mussels and whitebait (2 supposedly small dishes hence choosing two). The whitebait... More

we popped in with the kids for an early dinner. unfortunately, as it was early evening, and a nice day, it wasn't very busy which always means there is not much atmosphere - not the fault of the restaurant though. Service was good and we didn't want long for our meals. The food itself was ok. Nothing wrong with it,... More
