Our outstanding location being a 16th century thatched pub in the centre of the picturesque and historic village of Offchurch is just 3 ½ miles from Leamington Spa town centre. We use fresh seasonal produce, locally sourced wherever possible, to produce first class wholesome food on the premises by our fully trained chefs.

“One of the good ones”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

We looked around the area for somewhere to get a nice meal (Staying fairly nearby in Brandon) and came up with the Stag on the basis of Trip Advisor reviews.

The place is very nice - great decor, really good service, and a fine place to go for a well cooked and romantic dinner.

We had the shellfish bisque to start, and I don't think that I have ever had a better one!

Followed by a collar of pork with mash and beetroot jus - honestly this didn't blow my mind - the mash was dry and bland, and the jus was not to my taste, but I think that overall it was good ingredients well cooked - just not especially to my taste.

Didn't have any room for pudding, but they looked great (As did the sizeable cheeseboard that I saw somebody else order!)

I would definitely go back here again if we were back in the area.

Very friendly and welcoming, turned up on the off chance of getting a table on bank holiday monday and was very pleased to be fitted in ! The food was excellent, service great... all in all a lovely way to spend a bank holiday lunch time. Staff very helpful and not in your face.

“Charming country pub with excellent restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

Charming and welcoming country pub/restaurant with stone flagged floor, open fires and excellent food. Both the bar area and the restaurant have a nice ambience and we found the staff helpful and friendly. The restaurant is well laid out with comfortable space between the tables and elegant furnishings. There is a varied selection of dishes on the menu all prepared with fresh locally sourced food, I had the fish for my main course and my partner had the steak, both dishes were delicious. We have been here several times and enjoy the dining experience, however, we do find the wine list disappointing with only one bottle of white wine under £20.00 and wine by the glass an expensive option.

“Worth every penny!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

3 of us visited today and left very happy. Good food rarely comes cheap but we did not resent £80 for 3 diners including soft, alcoholic (good real ales) and hot drinks, roast beef from local butcher perfectly cooked with lots of very good veg and above average desserts with very professional and friendly service. We had something of a corridor seat in the very attractive bar but booked only 90 minutes before arriving so they did well to squeeze (and squeeze the generous plates onto the table). If only all so called gastropubs were this good. We'll be back.
