The Stag is essentially the perfect pub: it’s old, it has a friendly atmosphere, it serves a massive selection of beers, and there’s a large beer garden as well as a rooftop for those five days of London sunshine. It also does a great Sunday roast, and it’s the perfect spot to hit when you’re with a big group. You’ll want to share a few of the whole roast chickens.
