"Lovely meal"

Family lunch for twelve hungry people. The food was freshly cooked and plenty for all of us. The waitresses were lovely, friendly and could not do enough for us. Highly recommended for a great pub meal.


"Wonderful old village pub"

Went here for lunch to meet our son and grandchildren and everyone enjoyed their meal. We all said we would definitely return again when in the area.


"Top Marks all round"

What a find. I'm gluten free & on arrival had immediately gone through menu with me to see what I could have. Service remained excellent throughout. 


"Very good"

My wife and i went for an evening meal and it was lovely, excellent service and the food was gorgeous, highly recommend.


"Early evening bliss

Following a day at Belton House we travelled the short distance to The Stag and enjoyed a super early evening meal. Fish and Chips were great and one of our party had a special, the venison. Generous portion and fully enjoyed. A welcoming place we will return to.


“Lovely midweek lunch”

A great lunch today at The Stag. Everyone in my party enjoyed their meals. I had the fish and chips. The fish was fresh and the batter light and crispy. Thoroughly recommend it. Will be back soon.

Tasty cold beer followed swiftly by a lovely lunch, pleasant efficient staff, all good.

Dog friendly with water bowls. Two pints and two courses, £22. Great value for me. Will visit again.

Chose the Stag whilst staying at the De Vere in Belton, having read the reviews and wasn't disappointed!!! Food was excellent and served in a nice relaxed atmosphere. Will certainly recommend to family and friends. If you are looking for somewhere to eat in the Grantham area then this is definitely worth a try.

We arranged to take my mum out to The Stag in grantham as we do from time to time for Sunday lunch and heard that it had changed hands. We where very mindful that things may have changed for the worse however where we very impressed.

The new owners which where very engaging and couldn't have done more. Mum prefers chicken which wasn't a choice for Sunday lunch however this was an issue for them and they checked with the kitchen which was happy to help out. The food was great and better than before to be honest!! If you are looking for a nice family run business then you should give this place a go as we will be back !!! We where also told they had some entertainment during the odd evening however not good for us as we live in Newark and would want to drink!

Overall nice people, good food, good quality and nice surroundings

My daughter said that the meal was wonderful and she really enjoyed it so THANK YOU for making her evening memorable and fantastic.

Wonderful service, wonderful staff and gorgeous food. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
