The meal me and my partner ate here was absolutely fantastic. All the food was delicious, served quickly by friendly staff in a great atmosphere, It isn't the cheapest place to eat but for the quality of food it is the price is very reasonable. If you want a great meal. Go here.

Not the cheapest food and drink but certainly of a very high standard. The staff are professional, friendly and well trained. Whilst I have only visited once with my wife, she has visited regularly with her sister and absolutely loves the venue. We will cetainly call again, a really pleasant high quality experience.

I went recently with my partner for a birthday meal and it was superb. The drinks choice is fantastic, and the food is amazing. The service was wonderful, and the decor/ambience of the restaurant was 100% perfect. The Wayfarer, Swan with 2 necks and Orange Tree are definitely the best chain of restaurants in Staffordshire. They offer everything you require... More

We had traveled 160 miles to take our daughter at Uni in Stoke to this gastro-pub which had been recommended by a friend. The service was very good albeit a little slow in bringing our drinks. Of the starters, my daughter and I had the mushrooms which were very good and my wife had the Oriental Beef Spring Rolls which... More

Beautiful place for upmarket lunch. Would definitely recommend the chicken & ham pie it was delicious. Prices are a little steep, the fruit purée/soda drink at £4 wasn't worth it. Our waiter mark was friendly & professional. Look forward to next visit

This must be the quickest review I've done so far as its about my visit today (15th Feb) I called for lunch and was greeted by very friendly waiters and at a quiet time for diners. After being given the menu I waited so long without anyone approaching me for the first time I had to seek out someone to... More

My wife and I went here for a wedding anniversary meal. From the moment we entered the building until the moment we left, the service was superb. We were met by very polite and mannered staff and guided straight to our table....even though the restaurant was busy. The food we ordered was just fantastic and the staff could not have... More

Greedy chain - they cannot cope with the number of customers they are trying to serve. Last few visits have got progressively worse. Slow service, warm white wine, bland - warm food.... just uninspiring. I give this one a wide berth these days
