We shared the meat platter, it was plentiful and very tasty. The bread that accompanied it was homemade and delicious. A great place for a casual lunch.

I hired out the function room for my daughters Christening. The staff were amazing, extremely attentive and helpful throughout the day. I could not fault the service that they provided. I would definitely hold another function at this venue.

I have to admit I find any pub that adds a giant Yorkshire pudding to cover up the roast usually telling that it's quite average. It was. If you have kids and want to them to be able to run around without having to worry about them this is the place for you. If you are an adult seeking adult... More

Never disappointed here. Great food and excellent service - much improved. Pizzas were amazing. We visited before the onslaught of kids who can spoil the place with parents ignoring what their kids do.

I live in the area and been told on multiple occasions to go to the Stoneham to try out the pizza and the great atmosphere, the pub is a large room with open fires, leather sofas,wooden tables,mix match chairs and looks and feels fab, sadly we did not get to try the pizza, this maybe down to my age 45-55...

Another quiet weekday evening and it's more like a restaurant than a pub. Nice muted lighting, log fire a dn warm atmosphere. Attentive staff and a nice place to be on a cold rainy night. Busy at weekends and a lot of children around 6-7pm. The food is generally very good.

We organise a get together every year for about 14 friends and recently everyone has had babies and so we are up to 19. This makes it difficult to find locations that are child friendly and have the space. This was a fantastic find. Food was great, location is spacious and it's a nice pub too! I've been back here...

I'm all for child friendly pubs/restaurants but this place is just ridiculous - screaming children running around like feral animals whilst their parents just gaze lovingly at them, or worse, completely ignore them and carry on drinking. I feel sorry for the staff

The Stoneham is a stylish, family-friendly pub with an exciting new kitchen. We have a lovely garden, front sun terrace and a cool function room for parties. We pride ourselves on our food and have a range of daily specials. We recently launched out own smokehouse, smoking ingredients from garlic and cheeses to meats. Our standard menu is varied with a strong range of choices for vegetarians and carnivores alike. We also offer our famous pizzas in gluten free versions. On Sunday we offer a brilliant range of roasts highlighting local and quality ingredients.
