Stopped here on our way back from Wales for lunch. Conveniently close to the A14. Reasonably priced food of a good standard and 2 real ales on so we were happy. Will stop again on our travels I expect.

Three of us had different mains and desserts in pleasant surroundings with good service. The food was nice and well-priced. It was a cold day, and the pub was a bit on the cool side - it would have been nice to see the stove lit.

I absolutely love this village pub. My mountain bike group often meet here and Robert is always friendly and welcoming. We, as a group often eat here too. The quality is always good and value for money. Whether you are a family out on a bike ride on the nearby Brampton Valley or your a business man flying down the A14. This place is always worth stopping at to refuel.

Called in here last night after our balloon flight at Hanging Haughton, pleasantly surprised, very welcoming by staff. Lovely meals, had the steak cooked just how I like it. Even locals were friendly. Only wished we lived nearer. (Coventry) If out that way again would revisit.

My second visit to the stag head, we had 2 nights B&B and enjoyed our stay, the accommodation was clean and tidy, the breakfast and the meal we had in the restaurant in the evening was very good, importantly the beer was good and the staff was friendly and quick at serving food, I can highly recommend a stay at the stag.

Went for a meal with friends. Food was good, service was good. The card machine wasn't working, which made a challenging end to the meal. They were in the process of redecorating, and it's looking good.
