An old character pub in a delightful location with plenty of potential. We had seen in the New Year here with friends, enjoying a buffet dinner with music and dancing, and decided to return for an evening meal for two on Valentine’s Day. After a drink at the bar, we were shown to our table, where a noticeably musty, sooty... More

Evening meal with friends totally ruined by a disaster of a meal. Staff were totally inattentive with no drinks offered once seated. A silent pool G & T was ordered which was served without lime or Juniper Berries which were requested , this was sent back. Returned with said lime and berries with no real apology. The main course of... More

Visited here on a few occasions and this latest visit did not disappoint. Welcoming log fire and friendly staff. Our fish and chips were delicious . Ample parking and in the summer there is a garden, something for everyone. We will return.

Met friends here for lunch, a lovely pub in a charming setting. An interesting menu and good daily choices. Lunch time saw it busy, tables set nicely apart and a couple of roaring fires, on a cold and wet February day what could be better? Small car park so get there early and I would definitely book, looking at diary... More

The odour from the toilets was overwhelming as we entered the pub and this sadly set the tone for our evening. The food was extremely disappointing; all courses lacked flavour and were just bland. We will not be returning for a second visit.

we went for dinner on a Tuesday. The service was indifferent, we seemed to have to ask for everything. I had the special which was sausages and mash with a gglass of wine for £ 10 which represented great value. The sausages tasted more like a supermarket sausage rather than ones from a good butcher. My wife had the lamb... More

Stayed here while on business, and it became my regular until our Head Office moved. The Stag sits in a lovely setting, a typical old English pub with nice rooms. Staff were always really helpful and pleasant, and the food was great. Would stay again in a heartbeat ! Parking can get full during busy times, but I was always... More

Red Mist pubs offer an excellent selection of food and we have rarely been disappointed. We prefer the bar but there is a large dining area which is not as intimate as the bar. Outside is a large terrace overlooking the river with heated tables. Service is always good and relaxed. Tread carefully with the deserts, ones with pastry have... More
