Good meal, service could be improved

I visited on a Monday evening for a meal with work colleagues. The menu was very extensive but we felt we rushed to make our choices by our enthusiastic young waiter who interrupted us several times despite the restaurant being quiet. We went for sharer starters - the vegetarian sharer was... read more

Had a great meal at the Wayfarer to celebrate my dads 50th today. The whole place has a very pleasant atmosphere and the staff went out of their way to make sure we were looked after from start to finish. There were 19 of us for lunch, so we were offered the Boardroom which was a very pleasant private dining... More

This is my new favourite 'high end pub/restaurant' in the Stafford/Stone area. Fantastic surroundings, good level of service and reasonable prices. The Cajun beef calzone was without doubt the best pizza I've eaten. Very surprised and impressed by the quality. We sat outside with our dog and still felt we received a good level of service, which you often lose... More

We have been to the The Wayfarer a couple of times now and have always been pleased with our dining experience. Our last visit was on a Friday afternoon around 2pm and it was busy. Friendly courteous staff were attentive albeit a little slow to take the drink order, but it was busy. Well kept fresh Timothy Taylors Landlord was... More

Wish I'd seen the poor reviews before visiting ordered steak that was grissly what was supposed to be chips were like a potato that had been sliced into 6 wedges pale and hardly cooked cold mushroom for £16.95 not worth it didn't have a starter or a pudding as very over priced for the quality of the food.

This reflects on there meal as well with the food looking fantastic layered out on all sorts of boards and slate, however not much exciting pallet wise. Good for a lunch but not for a... More

The food is exceptional quality and always cooked to perfection portion sizes tad to large for us. Wines and non alcoholic drinks are reasonably priced and there is a substantial selection including finest wines.

We came here on a Sunday and initially were warmly welcomed by all staff. The food was not piled on a plate which I prefer but of an excellent quality. Excellent beef dinner and choice on menu extensive. Very similar to Swan with two necks in nearby Baldwins Gate. Would recommend both
