Steve & Oliver

Steve, bought The Stag in summer 2017 when it was closed and in a very sorry state. Together Steve and Oliver with a trusty team, took away the accumulated rot and decay to reveal the stunning interior of this amazing historic inn. Gently we are bringing The Stag back to life fit for the 21st Century. This huge project is still unfinished with more work ahead as we hope to realise our vision for the inn.

Steve is Owner & Kitchen.

Oliver is Partner, Business Partner and Front of House.
