We have over the past few years visited the Staffordshire Knot on several occasions. It has never ever disappointed. The food is always of a very high standard, the menu is well thought out and varied. We eat out on a regular basis and this is probably our favourite restaurant.

It is a bit in the middle of nowhere but is definitely worth a visit. We are usually camping in Hulme End and the 2 mile uphill walk to Sheen means that we have more than earned our delicious dinner! The Staffordshire Knot is one of the reasons that we camp in Hulme End. I am quite sure that if we lived nearer we would eat there more than a couple of times a year.

We ate there on Saturday 19th April and opted for the 2 courses at £15.95 per head. I would have loved to have a pudding but just couldn't find the room. Possibly the 2 bottles of wine that we had with our meal was a factor, the Pinot Grigo went down a treat.

I had smoked salmon with asparagus and dill to start, followed by duck breast with black pudding, my partner had the homemade potato and smoky bacon soup followed by fresh salmon and spinach. Both served with a generous selection of vegetables. All the food was perfectly cooked, beautifully presented but above all tasted delicious.

The staff are always lovely, the 2 girls who work there have the right combination of friendliness and efficiency. The chef/owner is clearly a very talented lady who takes great pride in cooking and presenting excellent dishes. Keep up the good work, it really is appreciated.

Like other reviewers I would recommend booking and always checking that it is open.

Beautiful place with an open fire, stone flag floor, rustic furniture and friendly staff followed by the most amazing pork medalions on a creamy stilton and apricot sauce. A wonderful experience and exceptional value for money. Well worth a visit.

This pub is only three miles from our home and i am ashamed to say we had never visited it. Our mistake.

The food was excellent and was obviously made to order no processed food or pot meals in sight. The portions were generous and it was good value for money.

Highly recommended pub/ restaurant just remember to phone ahead to make sure it is open out of season.

We arrived at the Staffordshire Knot, welcomed by a roaring fire and cosy surroundings. Our meals were all freshly made to order and the rack of lamb was melt in the mouth delicious.
The landlady is lovely and works hard running both the bar and cooking the meals, and made us feel very welcome, making time to chat with us. We will defiantly return and it's well worth seeking out.

Today November 22nd 2013, I took my elderly neighbour to the Staffordshire Knot for lunch; its many years since I visited this public house so I didn't know what to expect. Well having made our way into the place, we were immediately ignored by the woman behind the bar. It seemed the only way to gain her attention was to join the groups of rather rude people present and mob the bar. Finally I made contact and ordered a pint of beer and a small coke, which cost £5.65! We sat down and viewed the very sparse menu. After which we got up and walked away. Dreadful place, all that is wrong with the British restaurant trade.
