the Snooty TavernA quality family owned restaurant.
The Snooty Team's aim is to provide a comfortable local country pub with excellent freshly prepared food, made with passion and care, accompanied by fine wines and ales. We will try our best to give you a great experience, which, hopefully, you will feel you can recommend to your friends and colleagues. We offer full Vegetarian, Vegan, Dairy Free and Gluten Free menus (not just token options on the main menu). We have designed all areas to be safe, both for our clients and our staff.
Our Garden, includes our very popular self-contained bandstand, as well as our spacious internal restaurant, and our three sundowner tables at the front of our pub. Please book online. We have a private room for gatherings of 12 for those special family occasions, business lunches or dinners. This must be booked in advance. We also have a large private dining room which can accommodate 30 diners.
Christmas is just around the corner and Chef Nick has put a lot of thought and consideration into creating his exciting Festive Menu, which includes the traditional, and also some alternative choices to offer some variation. Please see the "Menus Page" for the full menu - served throughout December.
Very popular at the moment is the stunning Tomahawk Steak (Cote de Boeuf) cooked over Charcoal on our Japanese Yakatori Grill (to share with 2/3 friends) and featured on our Specials Board? (See image top left). Now available as a takeaway, ready carved, as an alternative to the traditional Sunday lunch - complete with a selection of vegetables and gravy. A truly special meal to share with family or friends at home.
We are pleased to serve Lobsters, but as these are bought live and therefore super-fresh, we would request 24 hrs notice should you wish to enjoy a Lobster Thermidor in little Great Staughton! Please note - due to fishing conditions Lobsters are sometimes not available.
Takeaways are available during both lunch and evening services of our complete menu ~ please book on 01480 700670 or 07597 981112. Please select from the menu page - as an example image on left shows our Madagascan King Prawn Takeaway - boxed and ready to go!
If you are planning a Private Dinner to celebrate Christmas, Wedding Celebration, Birthday, or a Meeting we can offer privacy, discretion and attentive service. We have a separate private function room that can accommodate diners in comfort for those special occasions, or for business meetings a large TV screen for presentations - please call to discuss.
Gift vouchers are available to give as birthday/anniversary or Christmas presents, or as a "thank you" to someone special.

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!
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!!
