The Stag Belsize Park - London Pub Review

The Stag Belsize Park - London Pub Review

From October onwards, my Saturdays are invariably spent the same way until April - trying to find the perfect winter pub. How else does one survive months of British dreariness? The criteria for a cold-weather boozer is simple; lots of cosy corners...

we all had the chicken salad and were very disappointed as the portions were smaller than a starter size should be when it was supposed to be a main course. There was also hardly any chicken in the salad, i could have made better myself. Its a shame as i have had many nice meals at The Stag before. visited The Stag on 22 Jun 2017

Hi, lovely evening in the garden. I've given 4 not 5 stars because there was no beef and ale pie on the menu! It's my favourite, I hope it will be back on the menu soon. No finer pie in London. One other thing - you only have 1 draft cider and given that you have so many beers I wonder if you might consider another one, like maybe Aspells' which is my boyfriend's favourite and I promise he will drink it if you get it! thanks Emma visited The Stag on 22 Jun 2017

Went here for a friends birthday. We booked a table outside, the great weather contributed to a really good atmosphere. The staff can be a bit slow but they make up for it with friendliness, the menu as well is a bit limiting i.e. can't order bread as a side and there were also some dishes that we couldn't order as they had run out.

Excellent service from the waiters outside in the garden. It was a hot night so it was absolutely packed with tables. Both the food and the drinks took a very long time to arrive (some food even arrived before the drinks) but our waiter kept us informed and was extremely pleasant and apologetic about the timing. He was extremely friendly and even though it took a very long time for both, the high level of service made it all OK and we'd return again. visited The Stag on 20 Jun 2017

I am a regular at The Stag Pub and i keep going back as its just plain good. Its the only pub i know that feels like a regulars pub, they advise on what is good, what you will like, remember what you drink, essentially quality runs throughout. In an age where going to the pub costs a fortune they have got everything right so it feels like money very well spent and that your custom is welcome and appreciated. Best pub and beer garden in London when the suns out too! Jon Arnold loves it! visited The Stag on 06 Jun 2017

We came for a Sunday roast and as a veggie I was rather disappointed to find out that all the veggie roasts where sold out. There wasn't much other option that I could have instead. Then, we found out that you had also sold out of the pork roast AND the scotch eggs. Which was rather disappointing. Waiting staff were quite slow and not friendly either. Once the food came we did enjoy it and it tasted delicious. visited The Stag on 04 Jun 2017

It was a bit weird that 'runners' delivered our food but then when we would ask them for something extra, or if the order was slightly wrong, they said they can't help we need to wait for our waiter. Otherwise a lovely setting for a birthday lunch! visited The Stag on 04 Jun 2017

We had a fantastic time at the Stag. The food was delicious, and we had some of the best service I can remember in London. We had quite a big party of people and some special dietary requirements and the staff handled everything with ease and a smile. Plus they have one of the best beer gardens in London! Highly recommended and we'll definitely be back. visited The Stag on 28 May 2017

Had a birthday dinner party for 45 people in the upstairs room at The Stag and it was a fantastic night. Food was delicious, the room is a beautiful space - fun, informal and elegant at the same time, staff worked really hard and the managers were brilliant in helping set up the night exactly as I wanted it. THANK YOU to the staff and I would really recommend having a party there. visited The Stag on 03 Jun 2017

I emailed about reserving a table outside but arrived to discover my table was booked inside. Although there were lots of serving staff the service was slow and confusing which led to delays in making food order. The table service for drinks was illogical in that the serving staff took your order and passed it to the bar and then left it. We waited nearly half an hour for one pint of cider. Our waiter didn't keep an eye on it and when we chased he checked and just said it was on it's way. Otherwise food was good and nice outdoor space when we were able to move out there. Thanks. visited The Stag on 27 May 2017

The food is awesome. My party ordered Mac & Cheese, flat iron chicken, wings, fries, salad, aubergine, and the Mac and cheese balls. All of these were amazing. With the wings and flat iron chicken you get very generous portions, and although I do recommend the sides, we could have comfortably gone without. Cocktails were made expertly, and the wine and beer lists are very unique. We were sat at a booth in the garden, which was fabulous. The atmosphere instantly hits you. It's both cosy and stylish. Some of my party found the hard seating uncomfortable, although it didn't bother me. Perhaps offering seat covers could be a nice gesture? Only reason I haven't given 5 stars is all the staff that served us came across tired, made a couple of mistakes and took a while to arrive with all our orders. I don't believe this makes then bad workers at all, but as they all seemed spaced out perhaps give your staff more generous breaks? It could be that it was 27 degrees this day and this affected their energy. Overall we had a really pleasant time. visited The Stag on 25 May 2017

Thank you very much we had a lovely time, the food was great, the service was too, the atmosphere was friendly and fun and the weather held out. The only thing I will say is that I feel that children leaving at 6pm is too early, one of my sisters has 11 and 12 year old girls who are very well behaved and my other sister a 15 year old daughter. Rather than split up the group we all decided to leave when they had to go and we went to another venue that accommodated us all until later. I understand that children under a certain age would need to leave by 6 but wonder if you would ever consider extending the kids rule till 8pm. All in all we had a great time just sad it was cut short All the best Debi visited The Stag on 06 May 2017

The food was great and the staff were very friendly. There was a bit of drama about the bill at the end, we were told paying individually would not be a problem but it was a bit tricky. However I learned later that one or two of our party were excessively rude about this so I do apologise to our lovely waitress, who was very patient. One thing I would note though is that I booked a table weeks in advance, and caled on the day to confirm, yet when we arrived there was no table set up for our group (there were for others) and there was a bit of a scramble to put one together for us. Still, a great night out! visited The Stag on 19 Apr 2017

The food was very good, as always. However, we experienced not a great service: two of us ordered beer and it never arrived, we had to ask for it at least 4 or 5 times before getting it, and it was at the end of our lunch. When we got the bill, we were charged by mistake for an extra beer that we did not order. The waiter was very kind and apologetic, I am sure it was not his fault. Just consider to have more people working at the bar/floor on a sunny Sunday. visited The Stag on 09 Apr 2017

Our last visit to The Stag was well below the usual high standards we experienced in the past. To begin with, we were there by noon and were one of the first people through the door. We then had to wait (with a baby in one arm) at the bar for almost 10min before being told where to sit (yes we had a reservation). Things went downhill from there on. The high-chair we asked for our baby took another 20min to arrive! I almost had to go and get one for myself!! After that, it seemed that no waiter wanted to take out order for drinks, as no matter how many times we asked, no one would come. When they did finally take our order, our drinks stayed behind the bar! When I asked for my beer, the barman pointed to the waiter that my pint was sitting on the bar (waiting to be served - for what I can only assume was quite a bit of time...). We then had to ask on several occasions to order food. After ordering (starters and main) we waited for what seemed to be ages, for the food to arrive, whilst all other tables that had come in at the same as us (and even after us!!) were seeing a steady flow. By the end of our main course, we were so annoyed by the entire experience that we asked the waiter for the bill and informed the person that had seated us, that we needed our pram. Neither the bill or the pram arrived, despite repetitive and continuous requests. Tired of pleading and with a baby crying and tired, I got up 15 min later, went to the back yard, found our pram and collected it myself. I then went to the bar and paid myself. The staff could by this point see that we were frustrated but no one even bothered asking us what was bothering us. We left the Stag extremely disappointed and doubt we will go back anytime soon. Hope this helps you improve your service. Regards, C visited The Stag on 02 Apr 2017

We were looking forward to visiting The Stag - menu looked great; close to the Royal Free where my daughter was due to have several hours of tests; a good opportunity to meet up with friends and family. Sadly a huge disappointment. We booked a table and were on time. We weren't allowed to order lunch at the bar - had to wait for someone to approach table, and waited for 45 mins for someone to arrive. Then had to wait for an hour for our food to actually arrive, which was unacceptable. Food was fine. Service was sullen and as you can see, unbelivably slow. We arrived at 1.30pm and received our food at 3.15pm. We won't be returning. visited The Stag on 07 Apr 2017

Hello Clare Thank you for your review We apologize about yesterday we had a staff member unavailable due to illness last minute & with the weather so hot & the 50% discount off on all food & the staff shortage we were under huge pressure to deliver our normal service with both inside & the beer garden all full at lunchtime. We tried extremely hard to serve everyone in time but it was so busy. Again we do apologize for your wait yesterday & sorry to disappoint

Had slow service at the bar initially but now think i walked at a very busy stressful time, because after that it got better. It was a sunny day and super busy but generally we had good food and good service from very nice staff. visited The Stag on 02 Apr 2017

FOOD is excellent STAFF need to dress a bit more appropriately - there was no sense of where we were, not identity, no branding, when the bar staff are in The Stag t-shirts, but the waiting staff are in civvies... visited The Stag on 02 Apr 2017

It was half price food night so especially busy which must have been known but it was under staffed. We sat upstairs where the waitress did her absolute best in difficult circumstances. She didn't seem to have any help at all. The music was inappropriate and far too loud. We had to shout across a small table. It was turned down eventually which helped. We've been many time and always had a good time , last night was definitely not up to the normal standard. That said we all enjoyed our food and our waitress was great. visited The Stag on 28 Mar 2017

Hardly had anything on the menu, asked if I could have chicken breast in a bun instead of red meat due to preference and was told that due to the head chef not being in they wasn't able to accomdate me as they would get in a lot of trouble, would have been very disappointed if food was full price and I'll think twice about coming back. Service was OK. visited The Stag on 28 Mar 2017

We have been fairly regulars for a long time and love the pub so I have some sympathy that weather was unexpectedly fine so garden busier than usual, but we had to wait for almost 2 hours before we got our food on Sunday. We were not in rush but had to forgo our afternoon walk as a result. The thing whihc made it grind more was that after an hour or so of waiting weour waiter came and apologised , gave us a free drink and took an additional order for youngest daughter who had previously been asleep. My daughters food arrived within 10 minutes of that order yet we had to wait another 30 mins before we got our food. when received the portions were ridiculously small. Kids burger was barely a mouthful and macaroni cheese more like starter. We had to feed her again when we got home. Not happy visited The Stag on 26 Mar 2017

Great staff and super service and such delicious food. Re: booking - However, I was upset and felt put out that the quieter table to dine that I had especially booked a week earlier, which was in the quieter area of the pub was not reserved but a noisy table in a very noisy area of the pub, was reserved instead. We were there in time for the booking time reserved. (The staff said it was to due to the number of people dining - which was in fact the same number of people as I had booked, viz. 4). The staff dealt with it very well. But I felt a bit guilty that two men that were drinking in the quieter area, at another table, were asked to swap with us. Delicious food as always, average size portions and not particularly cheap. Had run out of fish and chips option. Was a good venue for a meal out with friends. It is always very noisy in the pub's noisy section - but probably showing my age! visited The Stag on 16 Mar 2017

Service was fantastic. However, I am afraid I cannot say the same for the food hygiene. A friend of mine found a hair on her plate, and complaint about it. I did not know anythin until I saw the waiter bringing a new dish and apologising. But then, I also found a hair in my plate (I ordered salad) and I did not want to make the complaint while in front of my guests. visited The Stag on 12 Mar 2017

I will start off to say our waiter was awesome this past Sunday. But that was about it for The Stag. It’s too bad our waiter has to work with the General Manager and hostess. The General Manager and hostess should be fired. A hostess should at the very least know how to greet people and smile. I’ll never go back because of them. So rude…so, so rude. I couldn’t believe they actually spoke to customers (and us) the way they did. From the moment we walked in for our reservations they were rude…right down to the moment we left. I could actually hear them talking badly about their customers! I’ve worked as a bartender and waitress for a long time in the past. I believe I know when people are worn out and need a break. They are both years over-due for one! If you have kids – don’t go there. They do not want them there. It’s a shame really because practically every table had children at them. Too bad the GM does not recognize that if parents can’t bring their children, they won’t have a business. The kitchen forgot the kid’s meals and we sat and waited for ages for their meal. Only our waiter took pity on them and brought them a bag of crisps because the kitchen was so backed up. He should be running the restaurant, not the current GM. Our table was split on the food. Some had a good meal and some didn’t. We ALL agreed on the GM and hostess. Get rid of them both! visited The Stag on 12 Mar 2017

This bunch of old wrinklies had a great time -- many thanks to the staff -- sorry Alex, but the copious amounts of wine with the meal was always going to result in rugby songs and 70 year olds stripping off and dancing on the tables -- -- you made a group of silver surfers very happy -- after the court cases we intend to repeat the experience and shall bring more members of the Kentish Town over 60s Whip and Leather club-- will we be welcome ?

We held a meeting in the upstairs room at The Stag which was ideal for our requirements: a large table perfect for discussion; plenty of space for breakout sessions; a large TV screen to connect our laptop and project presentations; and individually made hot drinks for our break. Hannah and Bruno were really helpful, responding quickly to my emails and accommodating our requests. We will definitely use The Stag for future meetings and recommend it to others too! visited The Stag on 16 Feb 2017
