SquareMeal Review of
At first glance The Stag might appear to be simply a run-of-the-mill pub, with slightly sedate interiors and fairly underwhelming food (stick to simple creations like burgers or mac 'n' cheese).
But look closer and you’ll find it has two very big trump cards. First, there’s one of the best selections of beer, ale and cider for miles around. This is the place to broaden your horizons
with bottles of Beerlao from Laos, or Phoenix Lager from Mauritius, and pints of Sambrook’s Wandle or Rebellion IPA. These are best drunk in the other gem: a huge outdoor courtyard that is one of
north-west London’s liveliest alfresco spots, hosting a frenzy of barbecues and DJs from spring through to autumn. Nice-as-pie staff are a further boon.
