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 enquire about accommodation availability please phone or e-mail. 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.


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.

Cancellation policy
If you have to cancel a room booking within 14 days of your booked stay, we will charge 50% your room rate to the card supplied. Insurance can be obtained to cover this.

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.
