“Time limit for dogs”
Reviewed 23 February 2014 via mobile

Went in the Stags Head on Friday evening with my wife and two friends and our dog Molly. There were no signs regarding dogs but one of the bar staff said dogs were welcome. After spending £60 over 3 hours a member of staff asked us to leave as dogs werent allowed after 9pm. Our dog was flat out asleep under the table and had been the whole time we were there.Embarrased at the way this was done we left the pub leaving a group on the next table who had just arrived and were drunk and swearing loudly. Im sure if i was the owner they would have left before the cute sleeping dog. We went to another pub where dogs were welcome and drunken idiots werent. Certainly wont be going in Stags Head again !!!

Reviewed 9 February 2014

had a pit stop, a rest and a well earnt drink to wet the whistle, friendly staff, lots of rooms jutting off main bar, sandwich selection done in triangles on a platter for 1 was like for two amazing, warm beef baguette with mushrooms yummy, chips like ya mums mmmm, situated at the first rise of the hill from the pier, slate building welcomes you in, lovely staff waitress nothing too much, lots of people were booking in to stay even on a weekend to start February, cold and wet, didn't deter us any weather adventurers, and if you stay they have there own night club attatched to the back

“Promised but did not deliver”
Reviewed 2 February 2014

We went here for a late lunch and to watch a major soccer match, as they advertised that they showed all major sport. However, their satellite link was down and they could not show it. The barman said that the satellite link was always giving problems. Similarly their wifi - it did not work.

Then the lunch was not very good - amongst the poorest we experienced on this trip. The service was also rather slow and the guy was quite confrontational when asking for my daughter's ID, after she had already shown it to someone else.

Even some of the beers were not available!

Reviewed 18 January 2014

Always pop in to the stags for a pint when in bowness, it is a big pub for the lakes and has a couple of pool tables and shows live sports which adds to its appeal
