user reviews of the Stag, Wainscott

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Well kept, clean and tidy pub popular with locals. Two casks - Bombardier and Spitfire; Bombardier had run out, and the Spitfire was drinkable, but not fresh. Pub had a major make over a few years ago which gives the place a pleasant modern feel. An OK pub, but offers nothing special to draw people from outside the neighbourhood.

I have been visiting this establishment for nearly three months, mostly in the evenings after a long day at work.
I had been recommended to visit by a few workmates who were contracting in the local area.
I was a little unsure as to what to expect when I arrived, but was more than pleased to say that I found the whole pub atmosphere, had been incorporated into the fabric of the place.
The landlord and landlady could not have been more welcoming, and genuinely interested in getting to know me.
This is a little touch that seems to be disappearing, in the pub industry.
I found the Guinness (which I drink) to be first rate.
I could have opted for several other options including some real ales, but Guinness is my forte.
The only negative I have found here is the lack of negative things to say.
The regulars are more than friendly, and are almost all local to this close knit community, which in itself is rather endearing.
The decor is ambient with plenty of open space in which to drop into multiple conversations from any corner of the pub.
The smoking facilities to the rear of the pub have ample seating and external Television (should you not have a conversation underway)
The garden to the rear is nearing completion, with Bill and Bobbie keen to utilise the space.
With regards to the previous reviewers comments, lots of men these days have tatoos (i dont) the law states that you must smoke outside, and snake bites (cider mixed with beer/lager) are illegal.
I think those comments were particularly unfair, and a mis-observation.
Remember please, the previous government encouraged the cafe culture of socialising, with a drive to expand the pub on to the street outside, thus welcoming the passing trade to participate in the social event.
This in my opinion has been achieved in this case, although not to the delight of all.
With regards to the food on sale on a Sunday, I could not eat the amount I was served.
It pains me to waste food but I had no choice, there was just a little too much for my shallow torso.
The landlord and landlady are a making every effort for their customers, and for me that is enough to bring my trade back time and again.
A lovely place to be.

Exterior looks rough, especially in summer with groups of tattooed males drinking Fosters Ice outside. Bit better inside .
