Visited today and restaurant very quiet. Despite being shown to a table we were told quite firmly after about 10 minutes to order at the bar. When the food eventually arrived the haddock and chips was quite simply rubbish. The fish was over cooked to the extent that the batter was burnt and hard yet the chips were too big and under cooked. Similarly the mushy peas were not up to much either.

There are much better food establishments in the area -the Italian Orchard just down the road is excellent. Don't waste your money at the Stags Head.

it was a wet Tuesday night and around 6:00 pm, not particularly busy but the food was fresh and very good.

The service was excellent from the barman / waiter who was very good at his job and needs recognition for his customer service.

I would recommend this restaurant

We have visited the Stags Head twice now on our visits to Blackpool, both times we have had excellent food and excellent service. I can thoroughly recommend the Stags Head to anyone wanting a good meal with a good ambiance.

Visited the Stags head on Saturday night; it is a lovely country pub with gardens at the rear. The staffs were really polite and friendly. The decor in the pub is pleasing and to me is like a pub/restaurant combine, not sure weather that really works for us but seems to be the norm for England these days. The atmosphere was good with drinkers and dinners and families and there were several children all around the pub. The menu was limited but there were specials on the board that looks good. For us some of the menu was overprices for a pub but the food we had we enjoyed. The beer was excellent and wine seemed reasonably priced. However, what ruined it for us was the lack of respect of the clientele for others, by their constant use of foul language and the fact that the owners did not seem to mine regardless of the children. The use of [--] in every sentence does not create a good family environment, but that’s just us. We were thinking of bring the whole family at Christmas, but will now give it a miss

Visited the stags head and enjoyed the entire experience! The food was very tasty and well presented with a wide range of specials, so much choice it was difficult to make a decision! The staff were really polite and smiley and seem to have a good rapport with all the drinkers and diners which is nice to see; compared to other restaurants where the staff are sullen and don't want to be there. They couldn't do enough for us and we were well looked after from start to finish. Great atmosphere in general and would really rate it for all types of people; couples, friends and families.
