It is always helpful to book a table and essential at the weekends. This can be done by e-mail or telephone 01544 230221.
 To book, we will need to speak over the phone as we do ask for credit card details. We are a small operation and do try to answer the phone all day and all evening, sometimes we are too busy serving customers during peak service times or may be attending to our arriving overnight guests. We aim to answer emails 4 times a day and once or twice when we are closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. Book online from our accommodation pages here.


We supply vouchers for any denomination with no use by date which can be used for food, drink or accommodation on more than one occasion, you can collect or we will post just give us a call on 01544 230221.


The Stagg is an old building, built on a slope and has been enlarged many times over the years. All rooms are on different levels. One of our dining rooms has disabled access through a fire door which can only be opened internally; unfortunately the toilets are not easily reached from there at present. Our main door into the bar is not regulation width, but wheelchairs can and do get into the bar. All bedrooms in the Stagg Inn are up the pub staircase, which is fairly wide and gentle. The Vicarage staircase is not so easy as the stairs are listed with the banister pre-dating the house. We have no disabled toilets at present.

Please phone to discuss accessibility issues further and we will be delighted to help.

Please be aware that we are unable to get taxis at short notice in this rural area, they do need to be booked in advance. Do check the price before booking.

Children are welcome at The Stagg and we are happy to provide half portions of all dishes, food without sauces etc. We now have a children’s menu which is on the  Menu page. We have one highchair and one ‘z- bed’. We do not have a cot or children's play area in the pub garden or baby changing facilities.

Dogs and Cats
Dogs are welcome in the bar at The Stagg and in pub bedrooms, but not in The Vicarage. We have a cat Dixy at the Vicarage though he is not allowed in guest areas !

Groups of 10 or more diners

If you are a group of 10 or more we ask that you order from an abbreviated menu ( 4 starters and 4 main courses for groups of 10 to 18 pp) above that number a maximum of 3 choices at each stage including vegetarian etc.  Make your own selection from our menu or we can choose for you. You then order on the day from your menu with no need to preorder. We do not cater for groups of over 10 on Saturday evenings. On Sunday lunch times there is no need to order from a different menu, but we do take a deposit of £10 per head at the time of booking, should numbers change we will take the full deposit off your final bill if you let us know by Midday the Friday before. We do not cater for Stag or Hen parties.
