Good luck to all the sandbaggers and bucket brigades there: hope the waters recede soon.

Nice to see William and Harry doing their bit for the cameras. Why, watching H pass those bags, he could be a natural with a rugby ball...

I have been drinking in the Stag for about five years now and it is the best pub in the village. I love the cloudy addlestones cider that they serve and the pub has kept a lot of its old characteristics.
However, there is one huge downfall to this pub. There is a local thief known as 'CHOPPER' who drinks there on a daily basis. This parasite also preys on drinkers, waiting for them to nearly finish their pint and suddenly comes over expecting you to buy him one. It has left a sour note for me and many others. I might start to go elsewhere if this continues.

I have used this pub on and off during my twenty-five years of living in the village. It has changed hands many times and is now owned by the hapless Windsor Pub Company. All other pubs in the village have closed down and so the management has little incentive to try hard and it doesn't. Expensive, slow service and drab food. This village really needs a proper pub !

I'm very sorry to read that, Villageman. Yes, I went in the Morning Star. Once.

The only answer is for The Good to drive out The Bad, though, isn't it?

If there's really evidence of drug-taking in the toilets, threatening behaviour etc., then why doesn't someone inform the police, and/or get the place frequented by a friendly Rugby Union team? (I've tried with Leaguers: some of them them are likely to wreck the place too).

i have been drinking at the stag for the best part of 12 years, i have seen it change owners and landlords and it has always retained its great character and charm the food is amazing and the drinks are the same.

The thing that has earned this a 1 star review is the fact the clientele in the last few months has taken a drastic turn for the worst. there used to be 2 pubs in datchet, the morning star and the stag. With datchet having a large traveller community a lot of them would all drink at the morning star which closed a few months ago. Now they have started occupying the stag across all generations. The public have been intimidated on a regular basis, the younger generation have been constantly visiting the toilets where they have been taking drugs and being obnoxious to anybody who dare walk in the while this is happening and have been parking their horse and carts in the car park so they have a way of getting back to their caravans without being pulled over by the police for drunk driving. Since this occupancy as happened the pub no longer feels like it transmits the comments in other reviews and it is genuinely disturbing to visit the establishment anymore. My wife will no longer go there either because of the lewd and threatening behaviour of the new clientele. Avoid at all costs.
