Called in alone, landlord was friendly but appeared to be treading water. The beer was really excellent, so I decided to order some food. The liver and onions with bacon. Well the liver and onions were tasty however the bacon was a no show. To be fair they asked whether the food was ok and I somewhat whimpishly replied in... More

On arrival a notice informed us there was no card machine as we had visited on a d y when new management was supposed to be taking over so card machine had been taken away. Place was smaller than I remember but... More

Whilst staying a near by b&b for a friends wedding we went into the Roebuck the night before for tea. I'm just sorry we had to get a early night we could have stayed all night especially because Wednesday is pie and quiz night! I had pie but we didn't stay for the quiz. My partner had fish and chips,... More

Found this lovely village pub and had lunch. Good portion size, home cooked food. Choices of salad or veg with most meals. About 8 choices on the menu all around £9.50 and a specials board with curry, baguettes etc all a little cheaper. Dogs were allowed in the pub and beer garden. If any negative comment it would be that... More

A standard local pub which serves food throughout the day. Great value food which was very lovely (and big portions!). We sat in the little pub garden to enjoy a sunny afternoon and the service was brilliant!

Traditional village pub. Clean and tidy inside. Friendly staff. Small menu but well cooked food. A tab on the dear side. Best to park on the car park opposite pub as pub is on a blind corner.

My wife an I have had lunch here a few times now and, considering how far it is away from where we live, it must be something special for us to keep coming back. The food is excellent and my favourite is the chicken Kiev or the steak pie. All of the food that we have ordered or seen has... More

The Roebuck Inn is a traditional country pub and restaurant set in the picturesque village of Hilderstone. Just 3 miles from the centre of Stone and 6 miles from Stafford we pride ourselves on offering a wonderful selection of drinks, real ales and home cooked food. Muddy boots, families and well behaved dogs are all welcome. Roaring logs fires burn throughout for those colder days and we have a large beer garden where the sun shines upon from dusk till dawn for those wanting to relax in the warmer ones Our menus are created by our Head Chef Richard whose extensive background includes some of the finest country inns and gastro pubs in the UK. From modern day favourites to traditional classics with a twist, you can assure there is something to appeal to even the fussiest of palates. All of our food is freshly cooked and prepared here on the premises, and our high quailty meats and vegetables are from local suppliers in the neighbouring villages ensuring the highest level of freshness and quality.
