This is a very attractive Inn. It is a chain gastrobub, very good reputation. Very good menu, served quickly by good staff. Never going to be amazing, but always very good. Decent sized portions as well. Excellent parking, near to Stafford and Stone.

Booked in for Sunday dinner, nice place and pleasant location. Service is a bit slow, especially as shifts changed and they sort of forgot to clear the table. The food is nice and tasty but the portion sizes are just ridiculous. I had faggots which...More

Good ambiance, friendly staff, no fuss service. Duck leg with sticky rice and Thai sauce went down well. Not the cheapest local offering but to a good standard.
