The Snooty Tavern at Great Staughton aims to provide a comfortable local country pub with freshly cooked food, fine wine and ales. Dedicated full menus are available for Vegetarian and Vegan diners, Gluten Free options are available. We have designed all areas to be safe in these difficult times, and would be grateful if all diners could follow the Covid instructions, clearly portrayed, so that staff and diners can remain safe.
We have three Covid safe tables in the front of our pub plus, when the weather allows, a Covid safe garden area to the rear, this, in addition to the spaced interior tables.
When the weather is favourable, we can also offer our "bandstand", which offers an exclusive decked and covered area for family bubbles.
Whether you are having a Private Dinner, Wedding Celebration, Birthday or Meeting we can offer privacy, discretion and attentive service. When Tier 4 restrictions can be lifted, we have a separate private function room that can accommodate diners in comfort for those special occasions, or business meetings. Numbers and room design are subject to current Covid restrictions - please call to discuss.
Recently moved from The Mermaid at Ellington, the chef is still creating the most loveliest plates of food although not quite as creative . I am sure he is frustrated in not doing his stunningly, creative and delicious plates . However, he is still serving absolutely delicious, creative food . The service is spot on, as you would expect from Ann and her servers . They are knowledgeable, polite, well informed about the menu, without being too formal . October 2020.
Fantastic! Thank you Snooty Tavern for the tastiest vegetarian meal I’ve ever had. Celebrated my Anniversary with you, and you made our evening a wonderful experience. Staff professional and friendly. Food exceptional. Atmosphere welcoming. We will be back. October 2020.
The welcome we received was so warming. We absolutely loved our evening. We love this gorgeous venue. It has character but is also light, cheerful and airy 🙏🏻. They allayed all our concerns re Covid, and have established gold standard levels of hygiene without being “clinical”. They are just interested in you having a good time. The food was really good 🙏🏻 and has restored my faith in the post-Covid world’s ability to combine delicious food with joyous “hosts”. We will certainly be back 🙏🏻
We have just moved to the village and heard some excellent things about The Snooty Tavern, all of which turned out to be true. The food is exceptional, and the service and atmosphere is relaxed, yet so professional, that you felt spoilt and cosy at the same time. We have already booked for some follow up visits, and would have no problem in recommending The Snooty to anyone.
A fantastic evening! Nick, Ann and the team gave us a great welcome and we felt very safe and looked after. It’s our first meal out since lockdown, but we would have no hesitation to return very soon. Great to experience the amazing food we came to love at The Mermaid. I have dreamed of Nicks Soft Shell Crab and it didn’t disappoint 👍. The garden is lovely, and the bar and restaurant are very open and well distanced. It’s great to have them back, I would highly recommend a visit!!
