Thank you for considering The Winking Stag Bar and Kitchen!

Before you make your reservation, here are a few things to bear in mind:


  • Our menu is served Izakaya-style (think Japanese tapas). This means our dishes don’t come in any order, so we recommend ordering a variety and sharing among your group!

  • For groups of 7 or more, there's a pre-order form to fill out at the bottom of this page, there's also a link to it in your confirmation email. 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 of your booking we may not be able to hold the table and it might 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 quite lively, especially at peak times. Because of this, we also don't allow children under 14 after 6:00pm on Fridays, Saturdays and bank holiday Sundays.

  • 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 per person cancellation fee if you cancel after 12 noon, the day prior to dining. This is to cover our staff wages and other running costs.

  • The booking widgets below will send you a confirmation email once you've made your booking, if you haven't got it in an hour then check your junk folder (they sometimes end up there). If it's not there either, send us an email and let us know, we'll look into it! Bookings aren't confirmed until you have that email, so please double check!


For venue hire, large groups, drinks bookings (minimum 6 people) or any other reservations, please email us at reserve@thewinkingstag and someone will be in touch!

Please make sure you let us know about any specific seating or dietary requirements when you book!


We look forward to hosting you soon!
