We were recommended to try The Stag Inn by a local B&B so I booked a table for Saturday dinner. The lady who recommended the place said the portions are enormous "because they feed the farmers" so after a hard day's work, a shower and change of clothes we made our way along the main road to find the pub...

Started well with a good starter of camembert and wine not too bad apart from having to open bottle myself but you could call that rustic.

My friend recommended this place for a meal but warned we might not get in without booking and now we know why! Luckily it was hot and everyone had gone to the beach! The food was delicious and the waitress was extremely nice, the place was friendly and the prices were excellent! We will definitely eat here again!

Thankfully we only wanted a cup of tea. Only one type of tea available and we could only have it in take away cups (though we were welcome to stay and drink it on the premises). One of our party got to the bottom of her cup and found something horrible (perhaps a dead slug) at the bottom. Yuk!! The... More
