“Service with a smile”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

We visited the stag as part of a large party and were impressed from the moment we were greeted by the friendly front of house staff and barman. When we sat down to eat it was interesting to see the service that was being given to all by the excellent waiting staff. we were constantly asked if we needed more drinks and when requested they came quickly. The food was all served hot and the order was correct, impressive given the size of our party, the food was also delicious. We will definitely return

“Service Excellent but Veg Undercooked”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

I booked a table for 8 at The Stag for a family Christmas lunch on 22nd December 2012 having read the generally good reviews on Trip Advisor. I booked well in advance but was concerned that I had to pay for the total bill up front which wasn't refundable. Luckily everyone made it and the weather was kind! The first thing we noticed was that the car park didn't have sufficient capacity and most of our party had to park on the road. Secondly, our table was positioned against a wall which meant a lot of sliding to get people in and out. Also, one of chairs was right against a radiator which was very uncomfortable. However, the 3-course Christmas dinner was very good apart from the fact that the vegetables were undercooked. I do like my veg 'al dente' but the broccoli, carrots and brussel sprouts were almost raw. On the up side the staff and service were excellent and the location was lovely. I would recommend this venue but maybe not on an exceptionally busy, festive Saturday.

“Great staff, great food, great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

The food was very good and the Stag is definitely one of those places that has an atmosphere that puts you at ease the moment you walk through the door. The staff were exceptional. We will certainly be visiting again on our frequent trips from the Isle of Man to Surrey.

“Fantastic Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

The Stag on the river is a great experience, I love this restaurant and Kayal in West Byfleet as our best. We have been going for long time and its always great in its quality food and service, We must have atleast visited over 20 times and the recent visit was good, Latly we go regular at Kayal the new Indian but cant avoid The Stag on the river for long time. Excellent and please try it.
