Great Pub winter or summer. I have a few locals to choose from and always come back to this one. Haven't properly eaten off the main menu but had a couple of nice lunches. Ploughman's is to die for. New menu and specials board look amazing but haven't had chance to try.

I have not been for a while and noticed that the menu had changed and become more fancier, not the good old pub meals you used to get. I had difficulty in choosing what to eat as I have IBS and several food intolerances. Staff were very helpful and discussed with the Chef my choice one of which I could... More

We popped in to this pub by chance for a quick drink on Saturday night and decided to have dinner and luckily they had room for us. Both of us started with with the chicken liver parfait which was truly excellent, better than some foie gras I have eaten. To follow I had the venison which was amazing and the... More

We went here as a group of eight and the service was excellent. The menu isn't huge, but the meals we had were absolutely delicious.

Fabulous staff - couldn't do enough for us. Good food, though the braised lamb was not to our liking. The mese boards and specials are excellent... we enjoyed our 'dining experience ' so much the first time that we returned back in the same week!

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.
