A massive thank you for the unbelievable support that we received prior to lockdown ~ we really were taken aback, and the Snooty family were all very grateful. We are now in lockdown but, looking forward, we are excited about being able to offer our beautiful, good value for money, "Festive Menu" when it is considered safe to re-open on the other side. We can't wait to welcome back our famous "Snooty Snowman" as the star of our festive deserts! In the meantime, please stay safe, and we look forward to seeing you all in a few weeks.

We have decided to continue with our very popular mid-week special offer throughout December, on both Wednesday (Steak, Fresh Fish and Lobster Night) and Thursday evenings. There will be a discount of £5.00 per head on food bills over £20 per head. The offer does not apply to Children's or Pizza Menus. We would like to thank you for your continued support.

Gift vouchers are available for that special Christmas gift. Please email and we will get back to you to arrange.

The Snooty Tavern at Great Staughton provides a comfortable local country pub with freshly cooked food, fine wine and ales. Dedicated full menus are available for Gluten Free, Vegetarian and Vegan diners. These can be viewed under the Menu section of this website. 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.

An open plan bar greets you upon arrival with a lime stone floor and lightly coloured walls, the style of the decor is very appealing, classic contemporary, and really does add to the energetic atmosphere of the pub. We have three Covid safe tables in the front of our pub plus 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 and groups up to 6 people. This must be booked in advance.

Whether you are having a Private Dinner, Wedding Celebration, Birthday or 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 meetings. Numbers are subject to 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.

    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!!
