Description: At the Corner House you’ll find a variety of great value pub favourites on the menu, plus our favourite steaks, meat combos and burgers. Our amazing range of beef steaks are our speciality and are matured for 28 days, seasoned with salt, cracked black pepper and oil before being flame-grilled just the way you like them. All of our signature steaks are served on a hot iron skillet to keep your meal hotter for longer and sizzling all the way to your table. If you dare, take on our Flaming Food Challenges like the Flaming Challenge Burger, the gigantic Mother Clucker Sandwich challenge or the scorching After-Burner Challenge. If you defeat the meat we’ll put your name and photo on our “Wall of Flame”. All our food comes with a Flaming Guarantee, if you don’t love it, we’ll replace it! What’s more, our great value pricing on a range of fantastic beers and wines and special food nights across the week mean there is always a reason to visit your local Flaming Grill in Burton on Trent.

I phoned yesterday (14th) to ask a few questions about the suitability of access for elderly people as I am arranging a day out for 30 - 35 people in April, the person I spoke to said that it would be ok for me to take a look and collect a menu, they opened at 11am. I made a special journey over and' ok I was a couple of minutes early but the manager who was a on the other side of the locked doors shouted at me 'two minutes' then left me standing in the rain for over 10!. I could see the staff inside and they saw me, no one bothered to let me in or at least offer some sort of explanation or apology, i decided not to bother if this was an indication of service. Well they have lost a booking, I will take our custom somewhere that offers good manners, service and a warm friendly atmosphere.

This is one of those very large chain-type family oriented pubs. It has an ample car park and a big play area and verandah to suit the family group who want a pub meal.

We were travelling and wanted a meal break, and having stopped at several of this type of pub restaurant before thought it would be fine.

Irritatingly, for us at least, it was amazingly noisy and we could barely hold a conversation. The floor was sticky with spilt drinks so things got off to a bad start.

Ordering is done at the counter, and we had to wait quite a long time in the queue as one person appeared to be taking food orders and serving drinks for the whole pub. Eventually a manger appeared to help, but by the time we had ordered it must have been 15 to 20 minutes of standing and queueing.

We also had then to await the food. It did eventually arrive, and was fine. Not excellent, just OK. We eat and left.
