we visited for the 1st time on the 12th October and must say what a pleasure it was . it is a traditional pub and very friendly with a warm welcome the ales are from breweries in the area and must be mentioned very well kept .the pub is full of history easy to get to.will definitely revisit when in the area next time it is not a restaurant though

“A great pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

A superb 'proper' pub. As others have said, no food, TV or quiz machine, 'just' a great selection of well kept real ale.

Just a shame its such a long way from home (Sussex)! However, I'll be returning next time I visit family in Stoke.

Definitely the best pub that I've been to in Stoke.

“Great pub in Stoke”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013

Fantastic beers, very good atmosphere, a real clean and tidy bar, a rocky type of crowd but generally a good ale appreciative crowd!

Good prices, parking and people working there. Bar snacks available to accompany your fine beer!
