The staff who work there have no time/respect for children on one occasion my son and his friend put a 20p coin into a machine which didn't work and had no sigh to proof it, I took them to the bar to ask for their money back or the 20p toy and the man who owned it snarled at the kids and said its only 20p you don't need it! and he made a remark that said he didnt care! then later on when he was picking up the glasses he was tutting at us? and we felt that they was always checking up on us it just made us feel VERY uncomfortable, also the play-area is so unsafe and unclean on the climbing area half of it was broken and the slides were really dirty, I advise you not to come one thing is I will NEVER return.

The Stag's Head
As a regular and long term customer of The Stag's Head, I read with interest the comments made by Louise Kotek. Whilst finding her writing skills somewhat entertaining, I do feel she has exaggerated her whole experince. In this area of Lincoln, we have only one decent pub left - that is The Stag's Head, 5 others have closed down in the surrounding area, so the fact that this pub is still going strong speaks for itself. I know the pub is extremely busy on a Sunday as thier Sunday Lunches are re-nowed for quality and value abd thier food offers everyday. I have had hundreds of meals over the years with plenty of happy memories. The Manager is in fact the Head Chef who works extremely hard in this pub as do her team of staff who on busy days are trained to deal with any complaints quickly and effectively, so it is very unlikely she couldn't be bothered to deal with a complaint. If I have ever had cause to complain I have been dealt with in a professional and swift manner, although this has been a rare occassion. Finally The Stag's offers great quality food at a reasonable price complimented by good cask ales and draught beers. Ms Kotek may indeed prefer a quieter restuarant atmosphere with inflated drinks prices if not food - that is her choice- But Please leave our Local alone, We Love it!!

It's a shame that staff members from rival businesses in the area have to resort to these tatics in order to drive customers in thier direction

As I walked into the pub to the sounds of Right Said Fred, I did wonder whether this place was going to be for me. The music was so loud that in the end we had to go to the barman to ask for it to be turned down, instead of screaming at each other to have a normal conversation.
We were served quickly and in all honesty the bar staff and waitress were fantastic, especially based on what came next.

We ordered garlic mushrooms and the platter (combo for 2 to share). The garlic mushrooms came with bbq sauce instead of the garlic mayo we ordered, interestingly the sauce came in plastic shot glasses something you would expect in Ibiza with vodka jelly in and 2 strips of celery plonked into the bbq sauce as decoration. The combo platter was enough for 4 people wanting a heart attack; it was a saturated fat nightmare.

The mains we ordered were Surf 'N Turf, Burger and a lasagne. The steak in the Surf 'N Turf should have been 'medium' it was so well done it could have been used as a weapon! The onion rings were not circles, just massive chunks of onion drowned in batter. My burger was charcoal, I actually felt sorry for the cow that was murdered to become this meal. The lasagne was the redeeming part of the meal and definitely a 'safe' option. Any meal that requires even an element of cooking or finesse just don't order it. Even the salad was uninspiring and in fact consisted mainly of tomatoes.

The waitress saw our leftover food and took the initiative to ask how the meal was. She was worried about taking the complaint back into the kitchen because of how scared she was of the manager. A barman then came over to ask us what was wrong with the meal, he then stated that if the waitress had checked on us more regularly maybe our experience wouldn't have been so bad. We explained that we didn't want the waitress to be blamed, we were just wanting to register our complaint to the chef.

This is when we found out that the manager of this pub was in fact the chef and apparently doesn't take criticism well. The manager couldn't even be bothered to come and discuss our complaint with us sending every other member of staff instead.

A disaster from start to finish. Just don't waste your time, walk further down the road and for the same price you can have a fantastic meal in some of the restaurants in the Bailgate area.

excellent xmas venue for all the family
Having booked our xmas family meal for 30 people at the stags i was dismayed to read comments made by annoymous, and nearly cancelled. Thankfully i didnt. We felt welcomed by manager and staff, the food was excellent, the service exceptional, great value for money and i would certainly advise anyone to go there.

The woman manager is a horrible vile lady. please do not waste your time going in there or give away your money to her. I went in for the first time after moving to uphill lincoln and i have never been spoken to the way she spoke to me, i only asked how long my meal was going to be and she was rude, unpleasant, wasnt apologetic for the wait basically made me feel like i didnt deserve an answer, so i left the pub with a refund, fortunate for me actually as the food looked awful. She clearly couldnt cope with the few food orders she had on. i will never go near that place again and would advice others not to either.

Great Night Out
Went to pub expecting to have a few pints and ended up at a wild party....the nights entertainment Mr Glenny Vee claims to be the worlds worst tribute act...bowie, bob Marley, Britney spears, elvis, michael jackson...from memory plus some others, quite funny and he really got the crowd going....I only planned to stay an hour or so, as we were on a pub crawl at the top end of town..but ended up dancing on the tables...like the rest of the pub....quite a chilled atmosphere, and not what I expected...

Stags Head Pub Lincoln don't bother
We booked Christmas day lunch at the pub at 36 per head. The opub was full and there was a good feeling at the start, this evaporated when we over half the guests - including ourselves - had to wait over 1hr to even get our starter, only to be told 1 of our choices had sold out! - we then waitied 40 mins for our main course - the 6 people at our table getting their plates spaced out over 12mins - then desert (cheese and bisuits) was warm, sweaty and the cheddar hard on the edges - it looked as if it had been standing next to the cooker for a few hours. We didn't get the coffee and mince pie as promised on the menu.
I paid 215 for the table in November with strict instruction on paying the balance in full by December 18th.
We complained about the time it was taking to serve us - as did many others - and were told take it or leave it
The service was rubbish, the food luke warm, presentation crap and attitude by the staff something I wouls have expected from an Iranain Jail and not a Lincoln pub
