Tried this restaurant after hearing from various people how good it was. Very please to report after going along on a Saturday night for a meal with another couple, that we all thought it was very good. The Ladies had chicken wrapped in bacon and the boys had the usual sirloin steaks. The steaks were cooked to order and were... More

We happened upon the Stags Head while chasing down ancestors in Newport Cemetery. It was a good happening. This is a good location past the tourist area if you trundle up Steep Hill. I had the pork roast and it was delicious. Kathy Noltze Arizona

The waitresses were lovely and friendly and we did not have to wait too long for our meals. When the meals arrived we all enjoyed our meals and not... More

On arrival we were welcomed by a friendly girl who showed us to our table, which was unfortunately right next to a party of very loud women. As we were still waiting for our other diner we stayed in our place. After 5 minutes or so the waitress must have seen our discomfort and offered to seat us in a... More

Eight main courses, every one unhappy with something. Medium steak was tougher than boots, 'Codfather' orders were told 'all the big fish gone, but we've got smaller ones', one of those turned out to be a hollow batter with no fish in it, item sent back replaced with the worse 'posh fish pie', vegetables were wrong on EVERY order, just...

We visited the Stags Head restaurant for their Sunday carvery and found it excellent. Aswell as being very reasonably priced the quality of the food was excellent. A good choice of meat of excellent quality was complemented by a comprehensive range of vegetables which were not overcooked and well presented. Friendly staff and good service were the icing on the... More
