Stafford: some dual listings, some disppearances

Very odd.

The Spittal Brook is listed twice in the Stafford pages.

The Pastiche bistro has been deleted, even though it was in the top 5 last year. Its sister bistro in Hanley is still listed but closed years ago.

The Mess is listed as Stafford but is actually in Brewood.

Hi,

The Spittlebrook has dual listings as the title headings have been put in as both 'The Spittlebrook'and 'The Spittlebrook/RealAles'.

I have now alerted TA staff about The Mess and Pastiche listings and awaiting their reply.

I've been trying to submit corrections to a few places in the area but TA is very slow on acting on them.

Amendments are submitted via the form on this page in the TA help centre:

Form is here:

I tried the form a few weeks ago with no result.

It also seems odd to me that a popular venue should just disappear from the listings.

Having used TA for a few years when visiting new places, you then find all the mistakes in your own patch and think "maybe I shouldn't rely so much on this web site."

I'll e-mail one of the TA guys direct if no action is taken in a couple of weeks.

I'm passing Pastiche next week so will pop into make sure they haven't requested it to be zapped off for any reason (and to make sure it's still open - so many pubs, restaurants and shops have closed in Stafford town centre these last few weeks ! )
