We regularly go for the Sunday Carvery which I have always recommended to friends and family. We went the other week and it was not up to the usual high standard but thought it was just a 'one off'. We went for our Xmas meal the other night, Manager travelled from Colchester and a few others were from Milton Keynes... More

Ordered Posh Fish Pie and got a dish of dry fish and mash, no sauce! When I told the waiter he muttered sorry and walked away disinterested! The veg that came with it was vile the cabbage had brown edges, probably microwaved! Will never set foot in this place again, total disregard for their customers

Visited with friends for a late lunch yesterday. Very varied menu including 6-8 lunchtime specials for £6 and a specials board. Was very pleasantly surprised. We all ate something different from the £6 selection and without exception all made positive comments re the quality and the size of our portions. Desserts £3.75 each and again it was good. Not tried... More

I visited the stags for a Sunday carvery. The food is very nice with a good selection of vegetables and extras. The downside to my visit was the unwelcoming man in a white shirt and tie who is there to greet customers. He made me feel uncomfortable when he was trying to seat us and I also overheard him talking... More

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

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
