Went here for a meal on the bank holiday as a lot of places were shut. Having driven past a few times and saw that it was always busy made sense. The menu has a LOT to offer and it's truly home cooked meals! The roast is highly recommended!

My husband and I (in our early 20's) stopped here on the off chance of a quick meal on bank holiday monday. It was busy but we were seated straight away, told they were in the middle of changing menu and what was still available. Friendly service, very quick considering how busy it was, clean and price was fine. We'll... More

Good food and plenty of it. A group meal with 6 choices for each course for 18 pounds each plus drinks - very enjoyable night out.

Called in on manyva dinner time and had the most amazing meal and pudding at a price which is far too cheap for the quality. Everyone shouldmtry it once and make their own minds up. Please gomtry it and enjoy.

We have been going to the Stag for some years now for meals and have usually been pleased with the value for money, service and atmosphere. This was the first time we had been to the Carvery. To begin with the seating was awful. Lots of tables crammed into the room, it was more like eating in a refectory. People... More

Despite the bar not being particularly busy, there was only one lady serving. It took 15 minutes to order 3 cokes and a lemonade. Some friends didn't even get served as she went to serve other people. Glasses were everywhere and the children's play area was dangerous as most of it had broken.

After giving us our drink's, she didn't ask the rest of the party and went to serve more people. There were glasses everywhere, miserable staff and... More
