Reviewed 2 August 2014

Ate at the pub twice. There was a tempting range of dishes to choose from. The food was delicious and served by cheerful, efficient and friendly staff.

“"You don't expect it to be home made?”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

Our first evening in the west country. At 6.00pm we called into the Stags Head for supper. The room was tired and the cleaner must have been too tired to bother with the room we ate in!

It took an hour to deliver our food (2 adults and one child). The food was flavourless, the vegetables were raw!

We should have left when the owner told the couple on the next table, that the food was bought in and reheated on the premises ... even fish pie!

Just don't bother with this place.

Terry D, Owner at The Stags Head, responded to this review, 26 August 2014
Sorry it's taken so long to reply, but we have been rather busy serving our customers who appreciate and enjoy our wonderful food. Obviously, you were less than impressed with your visit to us, but to then use a slanderous and misquoted statement in your review is unjust. I was not telling the couple on the next table that ALL the food was bought in and reheated, I was talking about the award winning pies we have on our menu, that are made fresh, locally and come in uncooked, so obviously have to be cooked (or heated, if you like?) on the premises. We use a locally sourced product, by a local company, and also are able to sell them at a reasonable price to our customers by doing so,

“Good sirloin !”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

5 of us went for a meal there a couple of days ago and were quite impressed. Good service, (with smiles) my sirloin was cracking and cooked well, along with the other 4 meals being as good. Much, much better than The Castle hotel in Dunster where we ate the other day.
I wish i had as much enthusiasm and drive as the male server has there.He's always full of beans and very pleasant.
Thanks again !

“Excellent Choice”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

On a Memory Lane visit to the Minehead area, my son & daughter-in-law took me to this venue and what a wonderful choice. The food was 1st class, I too would recommend the cider chicken. Mine hosts and staff were very helpful. Well worth the visit.
