INSIDE THE STAG INN AT HINTON CHARTERHOUSE
A little village west of Bath called Hinton Charterhouse is home to the family-run bar known as The Stag Inn.
The free house, which is situated on the high street, offers a wide selection of beers and wines along with six days of home-cooked meal service.
Starting with Derek and Marion in 1993, the Parkin Family has owned and operated the bar for more than 20 years.
The family business was taken up by their son Chris and his wife Machaela in 2000, and they are still in charge of it in 2022.
Chris Martin’s visit to The Stag Inn is noteworthy because it’s a typical family pub in Somerset and isn’t highly recognized among celebs.
THE LANDLORD IS UNBELIEVABLE
When Chris Martin of Coldplay entered his bar, landlord Chris Parkin of the establishment couldn’t believe what he was seeing.
ITV quoted him as saying, “Crimealy, that dude looks like Chris Martin. We had just concluded lunch service and I was at the bar when this man stepped in.
The woman that was accompanying him then made a pinch me face and stated, “It is.”
Chris unexpectedly in and offered to play the song. “I begged the customers just to leave them in peace outside to enjoy their beverages and everyone appreciated that,” he said.
The Sky Full of Stars singer “came around and asked us if we wanted him to perform it on the pub’s piano, to which we said yes,” the landlord said after joining him for a conversation at the bar.
Before declaring, “It was really fantastic, a brilliant moment,” he told Sky that it was “the most weird five minutes ever.”
The landlord, who has attended numerous Glastonbury festivals since 1995 but has stopped lately, claimed that it seemed as though “Glastonbury visited me.”
