Stumbled on The Stag after searching for a place to eat. It was a lucky find. We ate in the more formal dining area. A bit loud but bearable. Between the four of us we had the Barramundi thai beef salad and salt and pepper squid. All meals were lovely. The staff were attentive and prices very reasonable. Would recommend... More

Came here for a weekday pub lunch. The 'bar' menu is quite limited. However, they do a good job with the meals that they offer. It's nice to be able to sit outside on East Terrace. I used to come here regularly before it closed & re-opened. The half-price steaks for weekday lunches were great. Not sure if they still... More

Hi Jayne, Thanks for your review. I wanted to let you know that we have a fantastic steak special every Monday from 3pm: Porterhouse steak with chips & salad for $15 which is half the cost of our cheapest steak on our daily menu. We generally have this menu out: http://staghotel.com.au/img/Stag-Bistro-menu.pdf which has 3 different types of steaks on it.... More

It has been 10 years since I darkened these doors, and how the place has changed. The staff were friendly and recommended a lovely red wine (Blue Eyed Boy) which within 10 mins I had ordered a second glass and a case to be delivered back home. Speed of service was good, despite previous reviews, and the steak was cooked... More

We ate here on a Saturday night. they were able to cater for a nut allergy with no problems what so ever. The staff were courteous knowledgable and efficient. The menu was a good range and the food was well cooked and and well presented (mains about $28). We ate outside and after eating went into the bar for a... More

I caught up with a couple of girlfriends here mid-week and it was a great place to sit and enjoy a chat. We started with a bottle of bubbles (obviously) and they were quick to bring it out to the table. We then ordered some food and the service was very quick and the food was delicious. I think they've... More

A small group had just been walking in the nearby botanical gardens and stopped for drinks before heading home. The bar area had been refurbished since last visit and looked very inviting. While service was a bit slow, although hardly anyone else there, we enjoyed the ambience while we had some wine, beers and dips. The outside area is close... More

Arrived at the dining room on time for a 7:00pm booking. It's now 8:35 and no sign of food. These people don't know how to run a pub.

Hi Jeff, Firstly, we are very sorry to hear you had a negative experience with us. The pub was much busier than we had anticipated and unfortunately our wait times blew out. We hope you come back another time as we are constantly aiming to improve and we are sure we can remedy this issue. Please email slivne@ahmgt.com.au to give... More

Stopped here for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed every mouthful. Lovely food, well presented at a reasonable price. My husband was intrigued by the "duck pie floater" on the menu so thought he'd give it a try. The waitress said it was a typical British dish although I've never had a pie floating in soup before! I believe she must have... More

The Stag is an iconic pub in the east end of Adelaide. After closing for a bit it reopened with new owners and a new fine dining restaurant. Once known as the worst vegetarian restaurant, due to its emphasis on meat, it's undergone another change and relaunched its menu with upmarket pub food. The new menu offers finger food and... More

I had the scotch fillet with truffle sauce. It was just 'nice' but I am fussy when it comes to steak - I have been spoiled by eating at barbecue inn down at Glenelg where their steak is consistently amazing every time (if you like steak, go here but don't expect anything fancy) The truffle sauce was lovely, and the...
