“Nice bit of grub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2014

Found this little pub on our way to a country fair in kettering. Food was fresh cooked very tasty. Staff very nice and understanding as we had 3 children with us. Good choice of real ales to choose from.
Will return if in area.
Jef and pearl.

Room Tip: Nice good pub grub and a little more.

After calling in for a "pint" early doors (4/5 times) over the years. We were at a loss as where to eat. Let's try the stags head was the reply. FANTASTIC lunch. nothing was to much trouble. the food was 100% the staff on hand but not overbearing. Robert the owner / manager had time for a word. which was a nice touch as they were so busy. Why oh why did we let this one "get away" A return visit is on the cards very soon. The place is kept beautiful with a beer garden for summer nights. clean toilet's. perfect. THANK YOU.

I've stayed at the stags head on business for the last 6 months and right from the start was made to feel very welcome. Rob and his staff were excellent looking after myself and a co worker throughout our stay.The rooms were comfortable and clean with a good supply of tea and coffee. As you could imagine being there for 6 months we tried everything on the menu was never hungry and never had a bad meal. The locals were extremely friendly and welcoming. I cant wait to return in the summer with my family for a reunion. highly recommended. thanks again Rob and Simon for looking after us. see you soon. Gary

A welcoming place with the staff being very friendly, there was good beer, nice room with TV and I had a very good nights sleep. In the morning the breakfast was yummy and plenty of it. The views surrounding the area were beautiful.

My husband, daughter and I stayed in The Stag's Head for a night and we loved it. Very warm welcome, rooms were cosy and comfortable, breakfast was delicious. Excellent value. The Landlord was so helpful and considerate. Our son is living and working nearby and he spends many evenings in The Stag's Head and had recommended it to us. We would definitely stay there again.

I've stayed at the Stags Head over the past couple of weeks and would highly recommend it. The food, ales and service are fantastic and the homely rooms well equipped and peaceful, I've slept solidly and comfortably every night despite the room I stayed in being above the pub itself. The free wireless internet connection was really good, much better than you'd find in many of the bigger hotel chains. Really good value and a warm and friendly welcome from Rob and his team mean I'll be staying many more nights in the future.
