Although not the oldest pub in the town, the Stag Inn has been a public house for over 150 years. Hattie (the landlady) & John (the cellar man & landlady's spouse) purchased the pub in July 2009 after it had been closed for nearly a year. Following a few months of intensive refurbishment, we re-opened in October. We aim to provide a comfortable and friendly environment, where customers can enjoy a relaxed drink, possibly a pizza, together with a regular programme of live entertainment. As far as we are aware, we are the only pub in Llani with a piano – which musically-minded customers are welcome to use.
In particular, we pride ourselves on the quality of our cask ales. Indeed, John – who is something of a 'real ale' obsessive – would rather give his beer away for free than serve a sub-standard pint! Being a free house, the choice of beers is ours and ours alone, and we do try to offer an interesting range, including brews from our local micro-breweries. We are also one of the few pubs in the area to offer a 'real cider' on tap.
On the eating front, as an alternative to the more usual 'pub fare', we offer home-prepared, Italian-style pizzas, cooked in our stone-based pizza ovens – bringing a taste of sunny Naples to rainy Wales!
