“Sunday Lunch”
Reviewed 20 January 2013

Just returned from sunday lunch here. Wife had the roast which she said was very good and I had the battered haddock which was very moist with scrummey fat chips and peas. The service was very quick all staff very pleasant. Will definitely go again.

“Service with a smile”
Reviewed 17 January 2013

We visited the stag as part of a large party and were impressed from the moment we were greeted by the friendly front of house staff and barman. When we sat down to eat it was interesting to see the service that was being given to all by the excellent waiting staff. we were constantly asked if we needed more drinks and when requested they came quickly. The food was all served hot and the order was correct, impressive given the size of our party, the food was also delicious. We will definitely return

“Service Excellent but Veg Undercooked”
Reviewed 9 January 2013

I booked a table for 8 at The Stag for a family Christmas lunch on 22nd December 2012 having read the generally good reviews on Trip Advisor. I booked well in advance but was concerned that I had to pay for the total bill up front which wasn't refundable. Luckily everyone made it and the weather was kind! The first thing we noticed was that the car park didn't have sufficient capacity and most of our party had to park on the road. Secondly, our table was positioned against a wall which meant a lot of sliding to get people in and out. Also, one of chairs was right against a radiator which was very uncomfortable. However, the 3-course Christmas dinner was very good apart from the fact that the vegetables were undercooked. I do like my veg 'al dente' but the broccoli, carrots and brussel sprouts were almost raw. On the up side the staff and service were excellent and the location was lovely. I would recommend this venue but maybe not on an exceptionally busy, festive Saturday.

“Great staff, great food, great atmosphere”
Reviewed 16 December 2012

The food was very good and the Stag is definitely one of those places that has an atmosphere that puts you at ease the moment you walk through the door. The staff were exceptional. We will certainly be visiting again on our frequent trips from the Isle of Man to Surrey.
