Me, my mum and sister visited the pub for a Carvery this afternoon for Mother's Day. Upon arriving we were ignored at the 'please wait to be seated sign' for a good five minutes. When we were finally seated to our table (which we booked) the space for out seats were too small for any of the 3 of us... More

Popped with a last minute booking for a Sunday carvery ,even though we had a 15minute delay for our table ( this was due to them having bookings for 380 covers) the carvery was plentiful with a selection of both medium and well done roast beef with a good selection of fresh and well cooked vegetables. Overall even though a... More

Whilst having drinks with friends on Friday in a pub I usually enjoy I noticed there has been a fast change in customer base...... When entering the pub, half the drinking area was full, usually a good sign, it was soon clear to see most of these were younger drinkers in there late teens or early twentys, within minutes they...

Went to the Stags Head last night for a friend's leaving do. On top of the exorbitant price of the drinks, we were kept waiting over an hour for food, even though the food was pre-ordered. We were informed that the food would be ten minutes late due to someone ordering a 'medium' steak. As the person in question's steak... More

This is the second time we have eaten here and both times we have not been happy. We went the second time as we thought it might have improved, but no. My partner had the turkey roast which was dry and. Ruling up at the ends, veggies are hard. The coffee is never very hot and the staff just sit... More

HavIng enjoyed our meal we decided two weeks later to go again for lunch on a Thursday. We ordered... More

Called here for lunch just after 2pm on a Saturday, notice in entrance states that food is served between 12 and 8 on Saturdays. At least 3 tables occupied by people eating. Went to the bar and ordered a couple of drinks, and asked if we could start a tab as we'd be ordering food - only to be told... More
