We were staying at B&B nearby and the local pub was suggested as a good traditional counrty pub. We were not dissapointed either, we booked in advance & just as well as very busy place. Service was quick with a smile, good choice of ales & drink, brilliant menu and such tasty generous portions with usual pub pricing. Large car park opposite too. We will be back & tell or friends not to miss it.

Just right for chatting and putting the world to rights on a cold winter's afternoon. The atmosphere complemented by excellent food and drink menu. Delicious food, to 'die for' Christmas Ginger Trifle :-) I could have stayed there all day

This pub now under new management for the last 3 months, they have a great chief, the food is very good indeed , well priced and ample portion size. Plenty of good food and good beers and wines, lovely atmosphere friendly and warm. Now the winter is arriving the lovely log and coal fires are a bonus x

This pub has apparently just come under new management and they have made some fantastic chnages the beer is still very very good and the food now miles better. Proper home cooked food at a reasonable price. I cant recommend this highly enough and shall happliy become a frequent visitor.

Can't understand the good reviews. We had the only item that was for vegetarians on the menu and it was tasteless. For £30 we didn't expect too much but we had to have another meal elsewhere because the helpings were so small. We had Tai curry, which comprised some carrots, peas and rice in a watery slop with some curry powder on top. One of the worst meals we have ever had.

We came across this pub having decided not to join the M6 Northbound following an accident one Sunday lunchtime. If you like old school pubs with a good menu and real beer then drop in and check it out. The food is of good quality (I had game pie the first time and cottage pie the second) and is always served within good time no matter how busy they are. The atmosphere is good too. Something that you don't really get in modern designer pubs and bars. If we lived nearby it would be our choice for a local Large car park and outside seating available

We found this pub by accident 18 months ago when our daughter started at Keele Uni. We have visited regularly ever since. Old world charm, open wood fires and the smell of wood smoke, excellent food in generous portions and real ale. I have read derogatory comments on the pub and can not find them justified although we have only visited at a weekend. During the last visit they were having the kitchen refurbished and still managed to provide a good but limited food selection. We have recommended this pub to our friends who's son has just started at the Uni.

The pub has gone to the dogs, the landlord and owners have acted in a terrible manner with shocking conduct to turn a spectactular pub for eating and drinking into a place not to go. All regulars have gone elsewhere and hardly anybody eats there following the dreadful kicking out of the beloved James (previous tennant)

This was the best pub in the area when James ran it, then the landlord (fool) put the rents up beyond belief and hence James had to go.....the new Manager has filled the bar with bimbos who dont even know what a pint is! the food is dreadful and the whole atmosphere has died.......poor regulars...come back James!!!! Quick
