“Great place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013

I live quite close to the Stag and have been there many times. The service is usually very friendly, and the food delicious. There's also an outside eating area for when the weather is good. It's next to the main road but you can't have everything, not in London anyway. The only negative thing I have to say is that it can be a bit cold in the restaurant area.

“nice food, staff not so good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

nice meal here with friends last night. Food tasty, but some staff members haven't done the customer service training. We expect comments/complaints to be attended to promptly and without question. Nothing major wrong, just could do better.

“Can't believe we haven't been here before.........”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

We only live down the road from this place but oddly enough, had never been? Really liked the dining room - big space but well laid out and a result didn't feel at all cavernous. Service was good - if a little slow but it was 8-30 on a Saturday and they were at full stretch. Food properly accomplished - this is not basic pub grub. Very good pork belly salad, courgette fritters, fish soup wonderful. Cod fillet with choritzo great, the fish and chips looked spot on and the lamb and steaks perfectly cooked. Good wine list and we thought very good value.

“Nice pub with horrible stuff.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013 via mobile

I have been few times at this pub. Food was aways nice but the stuff were always either rude or inattentive.
Now I prefer the neighbour old white lion.

“Good food but small portions”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

I have been coming to this pub for many years and on the whole i have enjoyed it. I went for dinner with some friends on a sat night which was lovely. good food and atmosphere but the portions were a little small. its not a cheap eatery and i was suprised by this. The food was lovely but felt like it wasnt great value for money
