Stag at Red Hill

Inn in Stratford-upon-Avon

Stratford's formidable one-time courthouse and prison, dating back over 500 years, is now an idyllic country inn 4 miles west of the town centre. Its nine rooms (including a family room with a pull-out sofa) are individually decorated; deluxe rooms have chesterfield sofas. Standout pub fare includes Red Hill sausages with spring onion mash. Countryside views unfold from its beer garden.
