Thank you for considering The Winking Stag!
Before you make your reservation, here are a few things to bear in mind:
Our menu, split into small, large, and classic dishes, is served Izakaya-style (think Japanese tapas). This means they won’t come in order, so we recommend ordering a variety and sharing among your group!
For groups of over 6, we’ll e-mail you a pre-order form to fill out. This only takes a moment and means we can start cooking your food as soon as you arrive! Unfortunately, if we don’t receive this within 24 hours before your booking we can’t hold the table and it will be treated as a cancellation.
If you’ve visited before, you’ll know our venue is on the smaller side. While this gives great character and atmosphere, it can get busy, especially at peak times.
Some of our tables have barstools or sofas as seats so, if you have a preference over this, please let us know and we’ll do our best to accommodate. For more information on what our seating looks like, take a look at our gallery section.
We’ll need your card details to book, but don’t worry! These are held by a secure third-party provider, and you’ll only be charged our £5 cancellation fee if you give us less than 24 hours' notice. This is to cover our staff wages and other running costs.
For venue hire, a booking for more than 6 people, cocktail masterclasses, drinks bookings (minimum 6 people) or any other queries, please fill out the form on our contact page and someone will be in touch.
We look forward to hosting you soon!
