The Royal Stag
Today we are the only pub in the village, proud to be the centre of the community and serving good food, wine and beers to locals and visitors alike from 11am until midnight.
Our food is freshly cooked on-site, featuring local ingredients served all day every day from midday until we take our last order at 9.45pm.
We do a fine Sunday roast and we advise booking a table so that you can enjoy our traditional hospitality, cosy fire and warm atmosphere. Enjoy a quiet chat in a cosy nook under the old beams or gather with friends, family and colleagues in the warmth of the bar overlooking the village green.
Only 3 miles from Windsor Castle we are a popular stop off point for a pint after a brisk walk with the dog! Pop in when you’re next passing.

The staff at the Royal Stag were v.friendly & welcoming.
We were given a v.good table & the helpings & food was v.good.
It wasn't the fault of the Royal Stag & partly my fault(for not moving) & because my elderly friend needs a hearing aid he found the noisy group of cyclists behind us too noisy but it was Sunday lunchtime & they were having a good time.Anyway my advice is to sit outside if want quieter table!& not in chalet structure where we were.
We all had a great time food was delicious very happy with the staff will Recommend and certainly will go again a big thanks to the Chef great food
Lovely pub,friendly staff and meals are good,so much so that we ate there 4 nights in a row!
Great food and staff were happy and very helpful. Went for my godson 18th and they found candles and made his dessert special
A pub that I have eaten in many times before was noisy with a table of loud fowl mouthed individuals who drowned out any conversation that my partner and I attempted. Plus the food was very average and did not copare with passed meals. I will not return.
As usual the food was outstanding! Delicious!
Had roasted halloumi for starters and slow cooked lamb shoulder for main.
Lamb cooked to perfection!!
Compliments to the chef!
Nice little pub in the middle of Datchet. Food menu is rather small, and simple. However, food was really tasty. Kids menu is available.
Staff were friendly, but very busy.
Overall, enjoyable lunch, and will return.
We were there for lunch so it wasnt' boistrous! Fine by me. The food was excellent and the staff were really friendly. Love it.
We went for Sunday roast and were really pleased, the food was lovely, all the staff are particularly friendly.
Nothing was too much trouble and happy to give us buckets of extra gravy
Would recommend it for anyone looking for a good quality reasonable priced roast in a traditional English village pub
Lovely staff, great food, have been coming here for years and have never had a bad experience!
Great location, delicious food and superb value. The Sunday roast was delicious, will definitely be back.
Food was outstanding, social distance not really taken seriously. Bar staff with mask on but not covering nose and walk in customers were put on a table so close they could have joined ours
Had a family meal for four, two x Piri piri chicken burgers. Both lacked flavour and quality. Fish and chips was low quality, the steak was good, I’m glad because at £17.50 it should have been.
We have decided that we won’t be eating at the stag anymore.
They got everything right.
Prompt friendly service, got the drinks and starters out quickly.
nachos were actually home made tortilla - v impressed.
Had the beef and ale pie - made that morning, excellent crispy pastry, generously filled
chips were hot and crispy
big portion of pasta for my hungry child
we are all fussy and we all came away happy.
They have made no outdoor effort .. a grubby gazebo.. no heaters and no outside lighting..
plus side food was ok .. but experience was miserable as it was cold .. I had even called to ask if outside covering .. very disappointing 😞
Fantastic pub! Super friendly staff and great atmosphere. Recommend, although it would be great if they could add some vegan-friendly foods :)
Lovely Sunday roast at the Royal Stag! Food and service were great, and had done an excellent job with ensuring customers felt safe with Covid restrictions.
1st visit ever
Loved the roast beef. & kids eat all too.
Not the restaurants fault- cold outside dining no heaters
many people outside smoking disturbing people like myself who
do not smoke. quite offending while trying to eat..they should have a smoking area
and dining area
Its my local pub and love the place nice people great village and just a great place to spend your social times
We arrived and no one acknowledged us, despite multiple members of staff walking past us. Finally when I caught a member of staff she sat us outside (obviously) at a table in the rain, despite having booked a table online. the whole outside was full of very rowdy people, where social distancing was clearly not applied. We sat for a further 10 minutes looking at the menu, again no member of staff acknowledged us or even took a drinks order, so we left. Very poor service. And rude staff. Very glad we left when we did, as we found a much nice place a short drive away.
Member of the party was gluten-free. The location was chosen because it offered gluten-free dining. When we arrive we had to ask for a gluten-free free menu even though it was on are booking request. Once we decided to order the order could not be completed as per the menu. Can’t have the chips, can’t have sauce. Hunters chicken option offered in the end was plain chicken with mash potatoes. That’s not a meal!!!!!
Still in COVID regulations so sat outside. Staff couldn’t have been better, really attentive and super quick service.
It was in the car park due to covid restrictions - this didn’t take away from the food or experience! Customers were friendly, staff even more so and the Sunday lunch was out of this world!! High recommend!
Excellent food.. Well enjoyed!
Service was great. Can't fault. We had the chicken and the lamb, absoultely delicious! Don't want to rave to much otherwise I won't easily get a table next time!
Friendly staff, really nice burger. Felt very safe due to all their signage etc
It was the worst place ever, not enough staff. Service was appalling and keep you waiting for drinks, staff are so rude, I ended up leaving with my family not paying for the drinks as the staff were so rude and arguing back.
Would never go back again, in my entire 43 years of my life never experienced such bad service
Day was sunny but a bit chilly,but didn't affect the temperature of food as it was piping hot.Very well set up.
Lucky to get this very late booking and we were seated in a very sunny spot in the car park. Busy day bit service was fine and the food was good. We had lamb and burgers all very good and not to much carbs. Free car parking only a short walk away
Despite this being the first post-lockdown weekend for pubs to be open, was pleasantly surprised to be able to get a booking at short notice. The serving staff were rushed off their feet, but made sure that all tables were looked after. Food was lovely. Will return next time I’m in the area!
The Stag is my local and I'm generally a fan, but my experience of their outside pre-booked dining, was very poor. The table we booked wasn't available, they were 'throwing' additional tables into the carpark to accommodate anyone that turned up. There were dozens of lads milling around the 'bar' area drinking and clearly not observing any social distancing. In the end, we decided against staying and luckily found a table elsewhere to salvage the evening..
Great to be back at our local pub, excellent food as always.
Very nice pub and very attentive staff
Tasty, good value food. Friendly and efficient service. Tables well spaced in the pub carpark to allow social distancing and a pleasant setting for our family lunch. Recommended.
Always great, well-kept beer and delicious pub food.
Lovely food and fantastic service. Would highly recommend.
Covid friendly late Sunday Lunch with the family. Food was lovely, staff friendly and we felt covid safe
Customer service could be improved. I guess they are still not familiar with the service at the table.
It was lovely to be back at The Royal Stag after lockdown. The food didn't disapoint. The salmon was wonderful. I will be back.
