We were on a bit of a session and this was our first port of call - we wanted to start with a good one!!! The range was, as ever, comprehensive and the difficulty was trying to pick!. I went for Slumbering Monk and wasn't disappointed. This pub has been picked up by its boot laces and really delivers -... More

Making the long drive from Manchester to London, we stopped by here to break up the drive over a pint. Cozy and friendly.

A proper traditional pub. Slumbering Monk remains a favourite and didn't disappoint either. The log burner was roaring and made for a very friendly welcome. Joule's beers are tasty and offer a good and diverse range. My only suggestion for improvement would be to have small jars with a sample of each beer in to see the colour.

Joules pub with a good homely feel and warming log fire in the bar. Well kept and presented Joules beer accompanied by a good quality Balti pie. There are worse ways to spend a lunchtime!

Called in at lunchtime with friends. Beer excellent, prices for bottles of wine amazingly good with super friendly staff. We looked at the menu and found some good honest pub food at very reasonable prices. Sandwiches were of a good size and chips/wedges good size and flavour. I had the oatcakes with cheese and bacon. The best I have had... More

Went to the Rose and Crown as suggested by my partners parents, we went for a couple of drinks. I remember the Rose and Crown back in the day in the 1990s and it was a very different pub back then, the Rose and Crown is far more inviting and the pub looks like it has a face lift, and... More

The staff are so friendly here, when I visited last summer we were allowed to play monopoly and cards in the beer garden with my pup and enjoy ourselves like we were at home! Only with beer... A very lovely environment

If you visit this Pub you definitely won't be disappointed. Great selection of beers and really good home produced food. The staff are nice and accommodating and it always has a good atmosphere inside.

Although I've lived in Stafford all my life I have never been in the Ye Olde Rose and Crown until last weekend when my husband persuaded me to go for a quick drink while we were out shopping and now I can't wait to go in again, I loved the feel of the place. As soon as I walked into... More
