We got married at nearby St Martha's church and had our reception at The Stag in April. The staff were absolutely superb - both on the day and during the preceding months when the owner, Mark, went above and beyond to help us organise the day.
No request from us was too much and both the service and the food could not be faulted - our guests (74 of them) were very impressed with their food and the whole day went very smoothly as a result of the staff's hard work.
We booked all of the rooms for the night, and there were very comfortable, clean and well-equipped. We've read the negative comments on Trip Advisor about some of the rooms and they certainly don't paint a picture that we recognise.
One example of where The Stag pulled out all the stops on our big day was when catering for one of our guests who had specific dietary requirements - the chef could have gone for the easy salad option but instead came up with a tasty meal for her. This was emblematic of the kind of service and support The Stag is becoming well-known for.
We've been back since and can't wait to go back for a meal soon! Try it - you wont be disappointed!
