Dining at The Stag Inn

The Stag Inn produces a fantastic variety of traditional English dishes and culinary delights. The menu is seasonal and changes on a weekly basis. All the ingredients are prepared freshly at the Stag Inn and sourced from local suppliers.

Alongside our menu, we have a great range of wines, spirits and award winning Badger Ales provided by Hall and Woodhouse in Blandford.

Please note that as we do change our dishes regularly the ones you see on this menu may not still be available. If you are after something specific then please give us a call or email us. Click here to download a sample menu.
