We dropped into the spittal brook as they had a beer festival on with a nice range of ales,whilst sat at our table my wife commented on the food as it looked appealing so we decided to stay for a meal. The service was quick which surprised us as they seemed to have a lot of orders and the service... More

If you like real ale, and don't want to go either into Stafford or well out of the town, the Spittle is the palce. Just of Queensville bridge (B&B side) with its own car park ... Good selection of guest ales and a 'different' selection of meals to bot. Good atmosphere - double check for special guts, beer festivals etc.

Pub at end of a small road next to the railway. Friendly staff. Serves food which looked nice (we didn't eat). Pleasant beer garden.

We love this pub, down to earth and unpretentious. They have guest ales and ciders. Meals are good, obviously not the full range of a posh restaurant. But we can go for a walk with the dog, pop in and have a drink and a meal and the dog is welcomed. She thinks it's great too! And you can read... More

Visited the Spittal Brooke last Friday with my family, I have to say we really enjoyed ourselves. This is a proper “Pub”. It has a great atmosphere as well as good ales and ciders. We had a meal while we were there, and although the menu choice it limited all the meals we had were home cooked and delicious. We... More

Had a meal with family on Saturday night, and that is the best Steak Pie any of us have ever had anywhere! We don't live in the area, but my brother goes regularly just for that pie, and now I know why! Fantastic but not for the small appetite!

Had dinner here on the way up North. It's quite close to the motorway, which is probably it's best feature. The food was cheap but the quality of it reflected that, was left with the feeling I'd eaten something very greasy, which wasn't nice.

I've been in here a few times over the past few months and like reviewer AndyC noticed early on the new landlords seemed to be struggling a bit with service, food etc. However, my last visit during quiz night was much more pleasing, quality of beer had improved as had the overall atmosphere. Give the guy a break and over... More
