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

Our first visit to The Stags Head was for a Sunday Carvery and we were delighted with the quality of the food - choice of meats cooked to perfection, superb Yorkshire puddings and roast potatoes plus a great choice of vegetables. 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

Although we live near Lincoln this is the first time we have eaten here and we weren't disappointed! Three things stand out for me: HOT plates, choice of six meats (medium rare OR well-done beef) and a choice of small, medium or large meal! Unusually there was also a fish AND a vegetarian option. The whole meal was well cooked... More

Came here for a drink as we don't like far. Pub was particular busy which is to me is a sign of success. Was lovely to sit in the sunshine too...not your average beer garden furniture which was a bonus. Need to visit for food soon! :)

I went with my family members here for Boxing Day 2014 as we had just moved home and normally have them all around for dinner. We decided to go to what is really the local pub but we were very pleased with the courtesy of the staff, the seating arrangement and the quality off the food. Much better and easier... More

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
