Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Proper Italian style pizza's too. We had N'duja with hot honey, rocket salad gambas pil pil, curried rice balls, sticky broccoli and pulled pork taco's. All fresh and delicious. With a bottle of red, two cocktails and a pint of Budvar the bill was far less than we would pay at a chain.

My boyfriend and I were overwhelmed by the choice of drinks, a waitress noticed that we were taking a long time choosing an and without rushing us, came over and asked if she could help. I let her know that we really wanted to try the cocktails but were tempted by a bottle of red. The waitress was able to recommend a reasonable priced bottle of shiraz and informed us that the cocktails are 2 for 12, so my boyfriend and I bought the bottle and started off with a pornstar and an espresso martini. Our waitress (Caitlin) was so chatty and witty yet so professional, she took her time explaining what the cocktails are like and which ones she would recommend. We ordered two cherry lollipops and they were delicious. I mentioned to Caitlin that I liked cheese with my wine and she recommended a charcuterie board, whilst there wasn’t a lot of cheese, I didn’t really care as the meats and flatbread were delicious. It was just what I needed, because I wanted to keep on ordering cocktails. We ordered a key west cooler and a cosmo, which were also delicious. We ordered a few more and I spent just over 70 quid on 6 cocktails!! (minus the food) The atmosphere was great, very clean and comfy inside. I’d come here a long time ago and wasn’t too sure on it, but the brilliant service we received from Caitlin changed our minds. She listened genuinely to every concern, despite it being busy and her having to dart back and forth, and every suggestion she made was right on the money. Service like Caitlin’s is what more places like this need honestly, it’s so easy to get a cocktail and a snack in Stafford, but it’s even harder to get service where you don’t feel like just another number/customer. Very well done, Caitlin. We will be revisiting and hoping that you’re our waitress again :)

Love visiting this place, nice & relaxed midweek bit busy at weekends. This time only had drinks, usually eat here but have done the menu as we come regularly & neither of us fancied pizza. That said food is lovely, well presented but it’s not big menu so needs slight changes every now & then. Small plates are good but since last change some things aren’t to our taste. Bring back the meatballs!! I’m not a pizza lover but admit to really enjoying them here, tasty, fresh & good size. Good deal on 2 for £12 cocktails but make sure you order from available list as others aren’t included in deal. Mon-Wed two pizzas & bottle of wine or two Steins of beer for £35. Hope this place continues to thrive as we are very limited in Stafford for places to eat, especially midweek lunchtime. Regular menu changes please….

Vistited early (6 pm) on a Friday night for food & catch up with friend. I arrived early & ordered a glass of wine. After 20 minutes I asked if I’d been forgotten. Wine eventually arrived with an apology. My friend arrived & ordered a drink which came quickly & we were asked if we wanted to order food. I said my friend had only just sat down & we needed to look at menu. 2 minutes later another waitress came & asked were we ready to order. 3 times in less than 10 minutes we were asked, felt like we were being rushed (place wasn’t busy). Food ordered & we both commented on the big price hike on the 3 plates to £16. We ordered as we didn’t want pizza. We chatted & we both looked at watches & we had ordered food nearly an hour ago. We asked if we’d been forgotten, food was chased & told it would be 8 minutes (funny as this was the wait time I was told few months ago when I chased a lunchtime meal). Food was average. Great to see meatballs back on menu but “signature sauce?” It was a crushed tinned tomato. The chorizo & chick pea bake was same just tinned tomatoes & chorizo was rock hard. Pork tacos & garlic mushrooms ok but the roast potatoes didn’t look like they’d seen an oven. Garlic bread was dry & inedible. I love the atmosphere here but food is mediocre & price hike outs be off returning. That said, staff are friendly & helpful but not very well organised.

After a day out in Manchester we stopped off for late night Tapas. It was busy at the time, but we managed to find a table and were given due notice that there was a waiting time of 40mins for food. We had a couple of drinks, with a reasonable selection of craft ales and some interesting gin choices. We ordered 6 items from the Tapas menu which arrived roughly 40mins after the order and we were informed that they had given us an item for free due to the wait - Which was a nice touch. The food and drink were all good quality and we’ll be back again!

Myself and four friends booked a table for 6:15 for food and drink by 7:00pm we were told "you have 30 minutes left as we need the table" then we received 5 minute reminders from then onwards we are then told "you need to move as we need the table you can sit anywhere else but number 2 is free" we moved and sat at number 2 which was not a problem. Within 10 minutes (just after ordering another round) " guys you have 10 minutes as we need the table" after a few minutes another lady came over and said " we need this table like now". We all still had full glasses and had to down the drinks to leave. In total we were in for 1hr and 30 minutes we did not have a good service at all and found the staff to be quite rude. What was the point in us booking a table just for us to get kicked out midway through a drink. There's also not much choice on the menue at all, we all had nachos and the forgot two of our ordered as it "didn't come through". The music is so loud you can't even hear the person sat next to you. Overall was not a good experience for myself and my friends.

We had bottomless brunch and Caitlin was an absolutely fabulous waitress. Food was delicious. We had the bottomless brunch and the pizza was excellent. Usually for a bottomless brunch it is only a small plate available but the pizza was a very good serving size. Will definitely be back!

We went on a wet Thursday night before christmas, for a catch up with some friends whilst in the area. The atmosphere was relaxed, and the serving staff were attentive without being overbearing. The food menu was varied and there was something there to please everyone. I had a ndjua pizza which was fresh and lovely, the fact you can see food bieng cooked was a nice touch. The drinks menu again was varied and a good choice of beers and cocktails. Would definitely recommend this place to other ls and will 100% return when back on the area

Came in for dinner and drinks and was served by a young girl, whose name was Caitlin I think. Service was amazing as our group are fussy and have many different dietary requirements and she served us and answered all our questions without hesitation. Food and drinks were so good and reasonably priced. Will be coming back.

My two friends and I have been here 3 times now and find the food lovely. There is always a good choice, and the cocktails are pretty good too.!! It has a lovely ambiance and the staff are so lovely and very attentive. This time we had Caitlin and I must say what a credit she is to them. She was so knowledgeable about the food and drink and so attentive, but never stopped smiling once. Thanks Caitlin for making our visit great.

Very poor. Used the bar menu time's in the past but the last few occasions were told that we could only sit outside (in the rain) the time before that we were in a group of 6 each round came to around £30 4 or 5 rounds each hour. When the place started to fill up we were told we had half an hour to drink up or sit outside as there is 1.5 hour turn around although we had been there for two hours. No explanation apart from the table was booked but as we were sitting there you would assume that would be enough to reserve the table. Anyway obviously some people like it but no wonder it's empty during the day.

Amazing restaurant and great staff. We were there midweek so went for the 2 Pizza and bottle of wine. We added 3 small plates for starters as had been working in the cold and wet all day and had missed lunch. The food was really good, nice sized good quality portions. The staff were attentive, chatty and did not make feel rushed, even though we were the last to leave. Will definitely return

Pre theatre meal and it was delicious. Nice table for two in the booth, with good service on cocktails and pizza. We had small plates and nachos to start, followed by a pizza and a garlic bread and what a delicious meal! Will return!

Excellent cocktails, food and service. My favourite go to place with family and friend outings in Stafford. It's great value with offers on cocktails and they do student and bluekight discount. The pizzas and flatbreads are amazing with great variety. Whenever I introduce new friends to Liquor Tank they are equally impressed.

This is my favourite spot for food and drinks in Stafford. All the servers are amazing and the best cocktails in Stafford! 2 for £12 for an espresso martini can’t go wrong! Pizzas are delicious too. I would 10/10 recommend to anyone in the area.
