The Snooty Tavern at Great Staughton aims to provide a comfortable local country pub with excellent freshly cooked food, fine wine and ales. We offer full menus for Vegetarian and Vegan and Gluten Free diners (not just a token option). We have designed all areas to be safe, both for our clients and our staff.
We also have three Covid safe tables in the front of our pub plus a Covid safe covered garden area to the rear.
When the weather is favourable, we will also be able offer our "bandstand", which offers an exclusive decked and covered area for family and friends.
In the future, if you are planing a Private Dinner, Wedding Celebration, Birthday, or Meeting we can offer privacy, discretion and attentive service. When it is possible, we have a separate private function room that can accommodate diners in comfort for those special occasions, or business meetings. Numbers and room design will be subject to Covid restrictions at the time - 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!!
