Having travelled down from just outside of Southport to Stafford to view,test-drive and buy a car I decided to stop over at the Darlaston Inn for a cooked lunch. We had firstly tried the Shire Horse,Stafford but they were busy and a 45 minute before the order could be taken was not what I preferred. Never judge a book by... More

Visited on a random Thursday evening. The place lacked any atmosphere other than two blokes swearing loudly which we didn't appreciate due to having our daughter with us. Food was less than inspiring. A shrivelled, dehydrated and chewy chicken breast with stiff bacon and sauce, handful of chips and peas. Not exactly worth rushing out for. Husbands pie was 85%...

Whats happened to this place over the years? It is now such a dive and awful service all round. We went for a family meal on a Sunday afternoon and at a time when you think it is going to be relatively busy they seem to run with just 1 person on the bar taking food orders and drink orders....

We called here for lunch with family today. The staff were very friendly and chatty. The children's meals were ok but our adult meals were almost inedible. We had the 'cow pie' and would strongly recommend that you DO NOT consider having this. When we had finished the meal there were no less than 7 staff at the end of... More

Went for a drink with relatives the other Sunday afternoon as weather was gorgeous. After having a drink outside decided to go in and have some food as we were peckish. Order was taken efficiently and food was delivered promptly by a very polite waitress. All meals were well cooked and delicious (there were 5 of us). Everything we asked... More

We stopped ay the Daraston having been at Trentham gardens. Dissapointed with the noise levels within the seating are due to children's party. Food average quality and price. Place looks ready for a refurbishment
