Some recent feedback from a lovely couple who hosted their wedding at the Stag..

“From the initial enquiry Rob and the team made me feel like they really wanted to be a part of our wedding and we were not just another booking. From initial meeting it was very obvious it was about what we wanted for our day, no pre made options to choose from but our choice and also gave us the flexibility to tailor our budget. We wanted an informal day with afternoon tea, cheese and bbq and a venue who didn’t mind the kids running around. Rob presented us with a variety of ideas and prices and was also happy to assist in recommendations for DJ, decorators and local taxi firms. The whole process was relatively stress free and the team always knew the right words to keep me calm. We chose to decorate the venue ourselves but the team were more than happy to help with the finishing touches.The day ran very well despite the typical English weather, the amount of food immense and standard extremely high, the team kept a close enough contact throughout the day to make sure all was going well and service was top notch but left us to enjoy our day.Drinks choice was great being a pub and at no inflated wedding prices as you can find at some venues and the kids made use of the open space. If you are looking for a relaxed atmosphere great views and outdoor space then I wholly recommend the Stag as a great choice. It was exactly what we wanted and many of our guests commented on what a great day and venue it was.”

An ideal stopping off point from the trials and tribulations of the A14 (J2 is one mile away)) and a haven for weary travellers. Good ale selection for non drivers and good, reasonably priced food. Lots of offers at various times in the week and boasts a real coffee shop with a real coffee machine along with take out options. Decent enough loo facilities and also a garden for when the Sun shines. Certainly beats motorway services or a dodgy roadside Costa.

The place is traditional and functional. The style is typical of a pub. The menu is rich and the dishes we chose were well cooked and elegantly presented. Only service could be improved with better organization.

Stopped off for some lunch on way home from Thetford. A lovely place, felt welcome as soon as we walked in. Staff were friendly and very polite. Food was lovely, big portion of fish and chips that I tried my best to finish. If passing again would definitely eat there.

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.
