Hadn't been to the Stag for quite a while so went this Sunday for lunch. The restaurant is nicely furnished and there was a big open fire, perfect for a wintry day.

Bit over priced. We visited recently as on another occasion about a year ago we had a nice meal at a reasonable price. This time however we were disappointed with the size of the portions. I must say the childrens meals were of good sizes. Under staffed but polite and friendly.

Nice place. Very pleasant staff serving you but have a lot to do. Short staffed and probably underpaid.

My prawn cocktail with pineapple, was different and delicious and quite filling for a small eater like me. Some interesting twists on starters on their menu. Lady who was... More
