We arrived at the Wayfarer by chance, having diverted from the M6 to find a decent lunch and were very pleased with the result. The decoration was clean cut and tasteful, the service matched this and the quality and quantity of the food fully justified the price. Almost an 'excellent' but the big... read more

Me and my boyfriend regularly visit here and always leave feeling satisfied and wanting to return again. The prices are more towards expensive than other pubs but I feel this reflects the quality of food you are receiving so don't mind paying a bit more. The pizette bread is amazing; lovely as a starter and make sure you leave room... More

Our friends had the sea bass which they declared was delicious. My husband had the chicken and ham pie which he greatly enjoyed,but bemoaned the lack of accompanying vegetables.I had breaded chicken with... More

Overall service was attentive, but found a baking bean (clay ball used in pastry making and VERY hard) in my chicken pie. Although we had apologies from chef and staff I was lucky I didn't break my teeth on it.

Visited this restaurant several times and always enjoyed good food and excellent service. Nice choice on the menu. We have enjoyed both lunch and dinner. Modern dining and bar area. Staff always attentive without being intrusive. I would certainly put this restaurant in my top three places to eat in Staffordshire.

Love this place! My most recent visit was as enjoyable as ever. I hadn't been for several months and nothing had slipped! The service was as attentive as ever and the food was delicious. I opted for the chicken, ham and leek pie (a real favourite!) and wasn't disappointed. A visit to The Wayfarer is a real treat and if... More

The 2 main courses that my colleague and I actually ordered were very good , and the service including drinks service excellent and attentive. Four stars because the olives and bread dumped on out table to 'nibble whilst we waited for the main course' were priced at £3.95 each with no mention of this charge at the time. Cheeky and... More
