“Its ok”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

We went there just after it had opened. The food was nice but not flash and the music from the bar area ruined the dinning experience. Basically it was tables at one end of the bar and a roudy bar in the other 3/4 of the place. We will not be going back in a hurry.

“Had a lovely meal at The 5 Stags”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

Have been to the 5 stags twice now for a meal and once just for a drink. Service was fantastic and the meals were lovely. My pork meal seemed small when it arrived but I felt sufficient and then enjoyed a dessert. It has always been busy in the restaurant and the bar area when we have been there. It is great having a nice place to go in Leamington for just a drink or for a meal. we are planning on joining in on quiz night, Monday nights.

“Great friendly atmosphere”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

I was in here having a few drinks with friends and found the staff really inviting and helpful. It made a great atmosphere and I have been back several times with the same feeling each time.

“Great place to go for dinner and drinks with friends”
Reviewed April 2, 2013 via mobile

We visited 5 Stags just before Christmas for a relaxed night out. The food was really yummy and all up we found it great value for money. The service was good and we felt taken care of by the waitress.

The only thing I'm not so keen on at this place is the pokie machines. Shame you put these in. :-(

“Okay but nothing more, service outshone the food”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

Had lunch at 5 Stags on Sunday, had read mixed reviews (on another site) decided to give it a go with friends who lived just down the road.

Service was good waiting staff were young enthusiastic and went around their business cheerfully there was only two of them doing everything but they managed it well and there was no sense of being rushed. Perhaps a little inexperienced, we were outside at a small table the only one still in shade, when the cutlery got delivered the empty glasses on our table weren't cleared waitress went back inside with empty tray. This however did not detract from the other wise pleasent service we recieved.

Food was so, so. My wife ordered their version of a sefood basket, we had expected the normal offerings of over battered boxed/packet shellfish and calamari etc but were a little surprised when the fish was the same, clearly a prefrozen Sealords type offering rather the a freshly battered piece of fish. I note they did have fish and chips on the menu for over $20 I hope they didn't serve this type fish at that type price. The rest of our meals were okay, nothing to write home about, pletiful and reasonably priced.

We would go back but would not go out of our way, there are better eating options in Cambridge.
