We are regulars to this delightful restaurant. We always receive a warm welcome and the food is outstanding. We intend to book Christmas Day lunch.

Me and my husband are regulars to this fantastic restaurant. We recently went with our young children for the first time and the staff and owner were very accommodating. Best place to eat in Stafford!
