A quick trip to Northampton, bed and great breakfast, dinner in the pub/ restaurant, good pub food. the restaurant was popular and quite busy so must be doing something right. Rob is a really friendly host. What's not to like

Used a groupon voucher, but bought a starter and pudding each too. Service excellent, staff very friendly and happy to chat. Great food, pepper sauce is the best we've had, tender steak and amazing Alabama chocolate cake with cream, which they were happy to whip for my husband. We will come again ASAP and bring friends next time. Thanks to...

Went here late last month on a groupon deal. I wouldn't recommend it! Pub was old and run down. We both had steak which wasn't great and to be honest looked like oven food. Young lady serving us was obviously new and I took a while for her to understand simple requests like "can we have some mayo?". All in...

First time visiting the Stags head after buying a Groupon voucher, and we will definitely return at some point. The food was lovely, not top standard but still very good. The garlic mushrooms with pate in were superb, and the mains of Scampi and chicken curry were great. I was surprised how much i enjoyed the curry as I've never...

My last review of the Stag's Head was not favourable, though on that occasion the very long wait time and relatively poor quality of the food were because the place was so busy. My wife and I went there again at the weekend to meet with friends. The pub was less crowded and that made all the difference. The food...

Stayed here overnight. Room was spotlessly clean, fresh & comfortable, even if on the small size! Good choice of pub food that was reasonably priced, so were the drinks. Staff very friendly, particularly the lady who served us breakfast. Nothing was too much trouble.

After driving through stunning scenery we found the Stags Head. Highly recommend this public house. Great atmosphere and extensive menu. Very competitive prices. The food was superb and well presented. In calm and relaxed environment we were able to enjoy our meals. Staff very friendly but unobtrusive. Plenty of parking with extensive gardens at rear. Highly recommend this as could...

We stayed three nights, loved the ambiance and the excellent services provided by owners], Rob, and his main barman, Simon, plus the other staff. We were lucky enough to arrive a Sunday afternoon when a couple of musicians were playing. Very relaxing. It was the extras - like a load of washing done - plus the excellent hot breakfast, put...
