The Stag and Hounds is an award-winning country pub based in the quaint village of Burrough on the Hill in Melton Mowbray. Built in the 16th century, the building has retained plenty of original features giving it a cosy rustic charm, the perfect setting for a traditional British meal. For years, The Stag and Hounds has been a hub for the local community and prides itself on creating a homely environment focused on good pints, tasty food and ensuring a warm welcome to all its guests.

The menu highlights the best of Lancashire's larder, including fruit and vegetables from local producers. This means that dishes change weekly according to what’s in season and what local suppliers have in stock, but always features an array of game, fish, meat and vegetarian options. Examples of starters include east coast mussels with braised leek and cider sauce, and locally shot partridge with beetroot, lentil and black pudding. Mains are hearty and comforting such as aged rump cap of beef with chunky chips, garlic mushrooms and peppercorn sauce, with vegetarian options including garden gnocchi with house pickles, caper butter sauce and parmesan cheese. The Sunday roast is also very popular at The Stag and Hounds, offering diners a choice of beef, lamb, pork and chicken served with all the trimmings.

As popular as the food is, many guests visit The Stag and Hounds for its excellent selection of craft lager and ales, all of which are procured from local breweries. Aside from pints, there is also an extensive bottle list, featuring wines from across the globe as well as several English labels.

Those on a budget will be pleased to hear that there is also a set lunch menu available. Enjoy a three-course seasonal meal showcasing highlights from the a la carte menu - for a fixed price!
