I can honestly say that the food we had last night was the best meal I have had of 2016, that is not a statement I make lightly. The meat was delicious, but something hard to find these days, is how well they served the seasonal Veg. My partner and I both had the Sirloin and would thoroughly recommend! Average... More

We have just spent 1 night at The Stags Head and my only regret is that we didn't stay for 2 nights. We were welcomed by a lovely lady in the morning who kindly took our bag as we had arrived early. We were given our key and were shown to our room as we wouldn't be returning until late... More

We stayed here for 4 nights with our 2 jack Russell's and had a wonderful time. The pub is lovely and the rooms really comfortable and welcoming. Food is excellent and the service is first rate. It is very obvious that the owners and staff really care about what they are doing and so do it very well indeed. We... More

Stopped off for a drink as we noticed there was a beer garden and it was a warm day. After ordering drinks from the bar we made our way out to the back to find a small thin strip of land with a steep path and steps. Not ideal for those with walking difficulties.

As a B&B over a pub you do not expect too much but unfortunately the Stags Head did not deliver. Our room was a twin or double in that it had two single beds which the staff said we could push together if we wanted. As we couldn't find if they locked together we decided to avoid the inevitable tumble... More

Sadly our medium to rare steak was well done so sent it back, and the second one was not much better, for the price the plate of food was very poor, steak 1 large mushroom soaked in oil,and half a tomato, the fried potatoes were nice, they offered us a free drink but good food would have been better.

Apologies again only one steak was was slightly over done however two brand new steaks were cooked to your desired order. it seems that after much deliberation and discussion with chef ( as this never normally happens ) that the second gas ring under the large steak griddle had unexpectedly and unfortunately expired. We agree we could do and normally... More

We had good meals here on two nights of our 3 night stay in Dunster and enjoyed both evenings and the food. The staff were friendly and efficient and it's in a very pretty street off of the main Dunster Road.
