Never disappointed here. Great food and excellent service - much improved. Pizzas were amazing. We visited before the onslaught of kids who can spoil the place with parents ignoring what their kids do.

Another quiet weekday evening and it's more like a restaurant than a pub. Nice muted lighting, log fire a dn warm atmosphere. Attentive staff and a nice place to be on a cold rainy night. Busy at weekends and a lot of children around 6-7pm....More

I'm all for child friendly pubs/restaurants but this place is just ridiculous - screaming children running around like feral animals whilst their parents just gaze lovingly at them, or worse, completely ignore them and carry on drinking. I feel sorry for the staff

The Stoneham is a stylish, family-friendly pub with an exciting new kitchen. We have a lovely garden, front sun terrace and a cool function room for parties. We pride ourselves on our food and have a range of daily specials. We recently launched out own smokehouse, smoking ingredients from garlic and cheeses to meats. Our standard menu is varied with a strong range of choices for vegetarians and carnivores alike. We also offer our famous pizzas in gluten free versions. On Sunday we offer a brilliant range of roasts highlighting local and quality ingredients.
