We held our mother's wake here and we were very pleased with the way the staff conducted themselves. They were on hand the whole time we were using the Function Room. There was an ample amount of good food with a varied selection, reasonably priced. The staff catered for our every need. We would recommend this venue. Thank you.

We visited here on. Saturday evening and were very impressed with the food. I had scallops as a starter followed by sea bass. It was cooked to perfection and beautifully served.

I have eaten here half a dozen times and always get food wholesome food and service that is to be credited. The price isn;t the cheapest however the quality makes up for it. I have taken my friends and students to here and have regularly had good responses. Handy to with just living across the road

Loved the mix of excellent food in a pub that wasn't a chain. We had pan fried turbot with smoked salmon croquettes, wilted spinach and herb cream. Beautifully cooked although the spinach just a little over done. My wife had slow braised blade of beef with parsnip dauphinois potatoes, parsnip purée, roast carrots and a red wine jus. For pudding... More

Attended my works Christmas party last night at The Stags Head; the room was a decent size, the staff were amazing and the atmosphere lovely... my only comment would be that the poor girl working the upstairs bar was left with barely any stock or glasses, and as the bar downstairs was pretty empty, it would have been wise for...

Visited the Christmas market in December and stopped by this quaint little pub on the way down for lunch. Was surprised by their gourmet menu and amazing choice of beverages and at a reasonable price. Would definitely visit again especially for their Sunday carvery! If you get a chance to stop by, do! You won't be disappointed!

Description
The Stags Head is under new management, and we now serve locally sourced, fresh food. We have two menus: daylight for the classics and lunchtime offerings and candlelight for the more adventurous and evening diners. We also have a daily specials board to showcase some of our food, and a lunchtime set menu. We serve from 12pm until 3pm then 6pm until 930pm Monday to Thursday, and all day Friday and Saturday with a carvery on a Sunday from 12pm until 8pm (service hours subject to change). We recommend booking as we do get very busy and have limited seating. We also boast a function suite for upto 70 people - we have buffet menus which can be tailored to suit your needs and can cater for most events. Alongside the function suite, our cathedral restaurant can hold upto 40 people for smaller events.
