About the pub

The pub is a large, well presented pub on the outskirts of Rugeley. The site is well appointed internally, with three very well defined areas for drinking and dining - 120 covers internally. The Stags Leap also benefits from a large patio area (70) and a secluded but underused secluded beer garden - the pub is set up to take good money year round, but should rocket over the summer months. Famous for its food in Rugeley, the site is also bestowed with a front of house Pizza deck and popular ice bream cabinet. The pub also has a small internal and external play area. Back of house, the Stags Leap Boasts a 5* EHO graded kitchen and a well appointed 3 bedroom flat and small assistant manager flat. A cracking site, with a good team, excellent reputation for food, and a good group of affluent loyal regulars with all the amenity a great GM would need to pick up and run with.
