Won’t be returning. A shame to say but four on the table all agreed that we would not revisit again. Albeit there were Christmas parties, it was not that busy. Food was ordered. It was asked if just a meal of baby back ribs could be ordered instead of the additional chicken tenders as it was too big (no mention that it would still be charged for the full price). The mains were served. Chips were cold on two plates, vegetables cold on another plate. The ribs were sent back because the chips and onion rings were stone cold. Everyone else continued with their food and eventually a plate of hot chips and onion rings were served… minus the ribs. I asked where they were and the waitress said I had eaten them all! I said I hadn’t and had only eaten three or four because the rest of the meal was cold which was why I went to the bar to get a member of staff to rectify the issue. No update was given but 15 mins later a plate of ‘fresh’ ribs was served but I was told there would be a charge added for these. I said they could have them back if I was being charged. I hadn’t finished the ribs I’d originally ordered and the issue was everything else. Apparently I was ordering an additional rack of ribs as I had finished the others which certainly wasn’t the case. The waitress then asked the rest of the table their feedback of which some of the food was cold on each plate served. After this there were no more visits to our table. I would have liked to order more drinks but we even had to go to the bar for the bill as we were now being ignored. I didn’t expect to be charged full price for the ribs when the chicken was not part of the meal. I certainly didn’t expect to be charged fully following the cold food and the feedback of this. Maybe a drink or something taken off the bill would have been a suitable option due to the lack of service? It wasn’t handled well and I felt somewhat insulted. I notice that management has changed and Steve could have come over to the table to rectify things. All in all poor service, poor food and unprofessional staff.

We called at 3pm on Sunday afternoon to book a late lunch and was told if we could get there by 3.30pm as the kitchen was closing. Luckily we just made it in time. We were greeted very well. All the staff were very good. We all ordered Scampi & Chips which was most probably the best I've had, with lovely chips that tasted great. The food and service was excellent. We were meeting up with family from the mainland that we haven't seen for over 11 years, and sat and chatted, after our meal for 5 hours in The Stag. We were very well looked after, even Cecil the dog. We will definitely be going here more often.

Dropped in for dinner, to avoid waiting in the traffic cue. Good decision! The menu is great, the daily specials board looked good but went for a safe bet, as it was our first visit. Only disappointment was, they were out of cod.

Shared a meal with two friends at The Stag and stayed for the themed Quiz. Good night, enjoyable food, prices reasonable. Only just got the menus and the waitress was a little too eager asking us for our choices. Accommodated tweaks to the meals but when swapping out an item with my dessert I got charged for the replacement item, would have been nice if they'd told me that was going to happen.

went for Sunday lunch and wow it was amazing. I started with the cabin fries the were delicious, my partner went for the garlic mushrooms great flavours and textures. The main event lamb roast great lots of sliced lamb, mash and roast potatoes, carrots, cabbage and peas homemade Yorkshire pudding, delicious hot and all cooked perfect. (the photos of the roast dinner taken after I started eating sorry). I skipped dessert but my partner had the baileys cheesecake and he loved it. last but not least the service was excellent throughout, friendly and genuinely cared about you.
