“Very Impressed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2014

Spent a few hours here on Friday night. If you don't mind a few kids running around and loud pub atmosphere, then you will love the charm of this hidden gem. The food here is excellent if you like good honest pub food at very reasonable prices. A very good selection on the menu and specials board and some lovely real ales to be found - the minted lamb shank was beautiful. The staff were very friendly and the manageress took her time to say 'hello' and made us feel very welcome. Our experience was very positive and I can't recommend the Rifleman enough. Well worth a visit.

“The best pub in Stoke on Trent.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2014

Easy, Great food, Great atmosphere, great crowd, I have eaten at The Rifleman on quite a few occasions, and its friendly environment and quality food make it personal to the customer, unlike the big pub chains this quaint little public house/restaurant has a homely ambience, and your welcomed as a friend not just another customer. With great beers and spirits {Guest beers}
and entertainment at the weekend and a quiz night two weekly along with other great nights ie race nights/premier football etc, Pay this place a visit next time your in Stoke on Trent you will not be dissapointed.
