“Amazing birthday meal!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

Can only thank everyone for making my wife's birthday meal so fantastic.

We had a great little table in the corner by the fire; the welcome was warm and friendly and the food was out of this world!! Fantastic strips of pork in a great sauce, and an unbelievably tender steak with fantastic home made chips!

The treacle tart and chocolate cheesecake were very tasty, and such a nice touch putting birthday candles in the treacle tart and the waitress singing happy birthday whilst serving it to our table.

A memorable and fantastic evening, and at a very good price as well!!

We had a really high standard lunch here. Staff were welcoming and very helpful. They dealt expertly with one of us on a Gluten free diet. At weekends book ahead as it is deservedly popular. Highly recommended!

We wanted a base for a brief sight seeing trip around Dunster, and the Stags Head proved to be ideal. From the moment we arrived all the staff at this family run pub proved to be very friendly and helpful. Our room was excellent, very clean and well furnished. The breakfasts were also excellent and we chose to eat in the pub each evening as the standard of food is very high. We would thoroughly recommend the Stags Head to anyone who needs a comfortable base in Dunster that is excellent value for money.

Spent two weeks staying in the Dunster area and visited the Stags Head three times for dinner. From the moment we entered we were made very welcome including our labrador who was given his own bowl of water. We were looked after by a very nice, friendly young man called Ringo who was very efficient and attentive. Very nice choice on the menu and the food was delicious and beautifully presented. We were so impressed the first time that we booked two more evenings for our second week of stay, and took other family members who also had a dog. This was not a problem at all as the area designated for dogs has a table for four. On both the 2nd and 3rd of our visits people were being turned away because the restaurant was fully booked. It has a lovely atmosphere, the service could not be faulted ( gluten free available too ) and everything we tried on the menu was lovely. Will look forward to visiting again when next in the area. Recommend booking so you don't miss out. House wine very good too!

We had eaten at the stags head on a previous trip to Dunster and saw their leaflet on the bar advertising their rooms so I booked a 4 night stay for me and my husband. Our room had a large 6ft bed that was really comfy. There was a tray of coffee,tea and hot chocolate in our room. Our bedroom was so clean and so beautiful i loved it. Breakfast had a large choice of fresh fruits,cereals & pastries and your choice of cooked breakfast with plenty of fresh coffee tea & toast, we ate in the restaurant over a few nights the menu offered a good choice all our meals were cooked well and tasted great all good value too. Bernice & mike you will see work so hard to make sure all that come to the stags head be it as a guest a diner or visiting the bar everyone is given the warmest of welcomes from them and their loyal team who are the perfect compliment to bernice & mike. Looking forward to our next break in November for our anniversary. Stags head + Dunster = PERFECT.

WE were made so welcome here it will be hard not to go back again. The owners were very friendly and helpful despite being very busy. Food was good quality and very good value. The breakfast was excellent and they were not even ohased by a request for a cooked breakfast with no eggs or meat.

Dunster is a lovely place, historic with great walks nearby; and The Stags Head a perfect place to stay. Bernice, Mike and all their staff made us feel very welcome, providing good food and service. They go the extra mile in many ways e.g. When you book a table expecting to take dogs, they ensure a bowl of water is waiting when you arrive. We spent 2 nights in very spacious and well decorated rooms. Overall: very good
