Our Suppliers

Celebrating South-West Food and Drink

Being situated in the heart of rural Somerset farmland, Stag’s Head Inn is blessed with a cornucopia of wonderful local produce to grace our bar and kitchen menus. Head Chef Sam McKean loves to showcase the very best that our region has to offer and you will find exciting new dishes appearing on our modern menu regularly as we adapt and create to rejoice with every season and its bounties.

For our fine continental lagers they supply us with Becks Vier and Stella Artois. On the cask ale front they are our route into tasty ales such as Bass, Sharpe's Doombar​ and the great beers from Bath Ales - the current favourite being Gem!  Tolchards also supply all our bottled soft drinks - they have a fantastic range and we stock Fentimans classics, Fever Tree Tonics, Schweppes mixers, Appletize and of course Coca-Cola!
