“Outstanding Food and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

Not locals, just passing through on the way up to Manchester. Food was exceptional and significantly better than your average pub food in the area (which we had tried on a couple of other occasions.)

Staff were so nice, helpful and friendly.

Definitely worth a visit.

“Great Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

My Husband, Son and I visted the Stag's head for lunch yesterday. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. Thoughtful seating was also suggested (a shaded spot for the little one). The menu was extensive - great choices, we had difficulty in choosing as all dishes were so tempting!
We eventually decided on a 'mezze' of dishes and sampled a few - all of which arrived in good time and were delicious.
There is a lovely decking area for al-fresco dining but also a seperate garden with shaded seating area complete with swings and football posts to occupy little ones.
Great food,great staff & great setting. Couldn't have asked for a better lunch!

“Great Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Great decking area with a nice view. Good range of food choices, the goats cheese starter, the fish and chip main and the rib main were particularly good! Staff were very friendly and helpful.

They had a great play area for children, however as we don't have children it is nice to see this set away from the decking area. One thing we did like to see as a couple out dining (without children) was that the staff very politely asked some of the children to stop running on the decking area near our table and to move through to the children's area instead, I found this refreshing as many pubs/restaurants would be too afraid to say anything.

It cost £54 for us to have 3 courses and 2 soft drinks each which we thought was reasonable, we will definitely be returning soon!

The food is fresh and tasty, the staff are friendly and helpful and the atmosphere is both family and couple friendly!

“Great Night Out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Our friends were visiting from Canada and we wanted to take them out for a meal at a Cheshire country pub that served good food and beer. We regularly visit the Mobberley area, where there is a lot of competition for pub meals, and thought long and hard about where to take them. In the end we chose the Stag's Head, whose staff provided our family and friends with a night to remember. We sat out in the late evening sunshine at a table on the outside decking and enjoyed the lovely views over the Cheshire countryside. Whilst the lads enjoyed a few pints of locally brewed real ale, the ladies enjoyed a jug of Pimms. The staff were very helpful and ensured a warm welcome to our friends and created a lovely ambience for the evening. The starters and main courses were all excellent, served quickly and to everyone's liking. My wife and I have since been back on a Saturday night and thoroughly enjoyed the dining experience. We must say that the quality of the service, food and beer at the Stag's Head far exceeds that of the other local Cheshire pubs where we have dined.

“Worth the Diversion!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

On this rare hot summer's day my fiancé and I decided to venture out into the nearby countryside for a spot of lunch. Being relatively new to the County of East Cheshire I left the choice of venue up to my partner who is a local girl.

She suggested The Stag and we both agreed that it fitted our requirement in terms of location. Unfortunately one of the roads leading to it was closed for maintenance so we followed the diversion!

It was however worth it. The staff were extremely friendly and professional. The interior was spacious and nicely furnished but what stood out more than anything was the outside area with lovely views of the countryside and extensive,comfortable seating.

We sat at a table on the lovely lawned area and after studying the extensive menu, decided to share a ploughman's lunch with side portions of chips and mozzarella salad. The portion was huge and was easily enough to share. It was well presented and very nice indeed . Again the staff get a mention for being attentive and genuinely friendly which is very refreshing in this day and age.

We will certainly pay another visit. Many thanks.
