We popped in here for a quick drink and the pub had a really nice atmosphere to it. The decor was very modern and staff seemed friendly.

Went for a burger night with friends and family tonight, had great service from our waitresses Lucy. Handled our order perfectly and didnt get anything wrong. Live a few seconds away from the pub and will definitely be returning.

Another pleasant evening enjoying new specialities from the specials menu. There's a new dish every time we go! Emphasis is on quality not quantity. Served by James who is always consistently polite and patient. We shall return.

Been to the Kings Stag for lunch a few times and it is reasonably good. Service is very friendly but found it a bit pricey for lunch. Perhaps better for dinner

Hello, Im so glad you enjoyed your visits to us and sorry you found us a bit pricey. We do regularly do competitor checks on other pubs in the area (myself and business partner were out last Weds doing exactly that) and we feel our prices are very similar to competitors in the local area, we use local suppliers and...

Bar snacks available and speciality beers. They have an open fire and sofa but may need to move as people book seats - a bit awkward to be told to leave at a certain time to make way for other people, they will be losing customers this way.

Thank you for your review. We do give people the option to book seats in the drinking area, it is normally only the odd table that is booked or the sofa and we always mark a booked table with one of our little black boards and you are always welcome to sit at it until the booked time, if early...

Nice pub serving decent food. The sticky toffee pudding is a must. Very good. My only gripe was with the bill. I don't like it when service is added automatically meaning you have to ask to take it off. We didn't do that as food was good but as a principle it is cheeky doing that I think.

We are very glad you enjoyed our stick toffee pudding. Robert my business partner trained under the Prince of Wales personal chef and we still use the same recipe that was the price Wales favourite dessert. I'm so sorry you felt this way about our optional service charge, it is never a problem to take it off if you dont... More
