I belong to a local Running Club and every year we host a prestigious Gala Dinner. The Upper House, as a premium Wedding Venue in the area, were only too pleased to host our Dinner. The venue is stunning and has a real warm 'Country Hotel' feel since it possesses charm and character in its building style. the venue rooms... More

I have stayed at The Upper House a few times as I have business in Stoke on Trent. The building itself is delightful - think old country house. Some of the rooms are a little dated but they're functional and clean. My own favourite is the Bluebell Room. Breakfast is very good and freshly cooked (assuming you go for hot).... More

I visited The Upper House for a friends wedding in May 2015, its a beautiful venue and I loved it so much that me and my fiance also booked our wedding here for Sept 2016. Staff are very friendly, the food is gorgeous and well presented, absolutely no complaints. We cant wait to come back for an evening meal!

This is a lovely country house hotel with great staff - the rooms are traditional well equipeed and there is a great lounge with a log fire - breakfasts are really good and the staff could not be nicer. A small downside is that some of the bathrooms are a little dated and the wifi struggles to reach all of... More

We decided to try this place as it looked so beautiful. The reception staff were helpful and welcoming. We were shown through to the restaurant which has the potential to be stunning, but is rather faded. There are amazing views onto the gardens and the fields beyond and the conservatory / orangery is well appointed. We ordered and the food... More

8 of us came for New years eve. We had a great time. The food was excellent and the staff deserve medals for the way they served us -on New Years Eve when we were all enjoying ourselves while they were working. George in particular deserves a mention as he was still working behind the bar at 1 this morning... More

Stayed at the hotel in November. It was a very relaxed, comfortable family run hotel. Set in the most beautiful countryside this old family home - Wedgewood family was home for a night while on business in the Stoke area. Its so refreshing to stay in a non standard hotel - where it has its own personality.

A nice selection of cakes and sandwiches provided, followed by fresh scones with jam and cream. The only negative was we weren't offered a choice of scone but all the food was delicious and the service was very efficient. Would recommend or give to others as a gift; we were given vouchers to cover the £14 each and I would... More
