Having lived in Lincoln many moons ago, I decided to frequent some of my old hang outs on a business trip earlier this month. I used to come to the Stags Head for a decent Sunday lunch with a few people from halls of res, and I have to say that this place has only improved further! The food is... More

Will not be returning to this pub ever again. Complete rip off from the over priced drinks to the over priced poor food

We ate here on a Monday night and were extremely disappointed with the food. The salmon was very poor value for £11 The size of the fish was small and it was overcooked. The meat pie was warmed up and dry on the cut side(it was cooked in a tray like school dinners!)The vegetables had also been warmed up in... More

Lovely new decoration, but food wasn't great. Went for lunch today with family. Mashed potato tasted very odd and had bits of raw potato. We were told it was to do with the supply of potatoes! Also had no ice cream - their main dessert. I'm willing to give it a go again, but am not convinced yet.

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

We were a party of 20 and we were put in a room altogether which was nice. We had already phoned our meals through as there were so many of us. 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
