Enjoying life’s simple pleasures

ONE of life’s pleasures must be to spend a relaxing summer day with friends and families in the gardens at a traditional pub like The Stag’s Head in Great Doddington.

Customers are guaranteed a warm welcome at the independently run pub and restaurant which is open every day from 11.30am. Food is served all day on Saturday and Sunday – either in the beamed restaurant or cellar restaurant, the open plan lounge, or the garden bar which is also dog friendly and leads to an enclosed garden.

It is 28 years since Gerry and Bob Rendle took on the venue and they are supported by a loyal team headed up by Licensee and General Manager Kelly Rendle.

The team includes Head Chef Glenn Shelswell, who has been working at The Stag’s Head for 27 years, backed up by Chef Len King, who has 20 years’ service.

The Stag’s Head serves high quality food seven days a week, including three roasts on a Sunday, plus their full menu. This is available on Sundays from 12 noon to 8pm giving customers another excellent reason to visit.

The latest menus include tempting starters like tiger prawns in a hot garlic butter sauce, prawn and avocado cocktail or shredded warm aromatic duck, beansprout and beetroot salad, maybe followed by an extra mature chargrilled fillet steak, topped with a Portobello mushroom stuffed with a garlic and tomato concasse, pan seared fillet of sea bass with melting cracked black pepper and sea salt butter or perhaps Gressingham duck breast served with a sweet cherry sauce. Of course, not to mention their most popular Chef’s handmade steak pie or shepherd’s pie topped with cheesy mash. There is something to suit everyone’s taste including a good selection of snacks and a dairy and gluten-free menu.

The Stag’s Head team pride themselves on catering for special occasions including birthdays, anniversaries, christenings, wakes and business meetings, with three different areas catering for small, medium and large gatherings.

Other menus are available on request, or online, including options for buffets, snacks, barbecues and parties plus set menus or a bespoke menu for the extra special occasion.

The Stag’s Head aim is to provide customers with great quality home cooked food from a varied menu and first-class service in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere, leaving customers wanting to return.
