Featured Staffordshire Restaurants
1. Pascal At The Old Vicarage British, Traditional restaurant in Burton On Trent 2 Main Street - DE14
“A real find in the area – they clearly know what they are doing and have been doing it over many years” at this “longtime favourite”, a red brick Georgian outfit where there may be the odd blip on the (French-slanted British fine dining) food front, but it’s usually “heaving early on a Monday evening – that says it all”.
2. Moat House British, Modern restaurant in Stafford Lower Penkridge Rd, Acton Trussell - ST17
A 600-year-old moated building with a dining room “overlooking a canal and the moat” creates a “superb setting” at this “lovely” small hotel (owned by Chris Smith and his family since 1955), whose staff “really look after you”. The odd “decidedly average” meal led to rather middling ratings, but some reporters consider this “the best dining experience in Central Staffs”.
3. The Boat Inn British, Modern restaurant in Lichfield Walsall Road - WS14
“Still a pub with a decent pint of real ale but with serious ambition to become a fine dining restaurant” – Liam Dillon’s two-year-old pub conversion was Estrella Damm’s Newcomer of the Year in its February 2019 Top 50 Gastropub Awards, and manages to steer a course between its pubby origins and “well-prepared and attractively-presented food”, be it from the à la carte or ten-course tasting menu.
4. Medicine Bakery + Kitchen British, Modern restaurant in Codsall 14-16 Station Road - WV8
This bakery / restaurant hybrid just outside Wolverhampton is an off-shoot of the Birmingham Medicine.
6. Swan With Two Necks International restaurant in Blackbrook Nantwich Road - ST5
2017 Review: “Always fabulous!” – this “typical country pub” is a great boon in a poorly provided area; “you always get a warm welcome”, and it provides a “busy, buzzy atmosphere”, “excellent real ale”, and “great home-cooked food”.
7. McKenzie's British, Modern restaurant in Lichfield The Corn Exchange, Conduit Street - WS13
2019 Review: “The great atmosphere of this historic building” – the town’s former corn exchange – provides a dramatic location for this large modern brasserie. In the evening, meat and steak-lovers are particularly well catered for, but there’s a wide variety of choice here from breakfast on (including sandwich options during the day).
8. Arthur’s Farm Kitchen British, Modern restaurant in Market Drayton Ford Hall Farm, Tern Hill Road - TF9
A sustainably converted barn, part of Ford Hall Farm community initiative, that serves breakfasts, coffee, lunch and afternoon, all locally or organically sourced; Sunday lunches are popular, too.
