Boxing Day lunchtime, travelling back home after Christmas with family. Determined to avoid motorway services. Came off the M6 at Junction 15 (Stoke), picked up the A34 and discovered this delight. No booking? No problem. We don't have any tables free in the restaurant, but you're welcome to eat in the lounge if that's OK. Drinks in front of a glorious log fire; views over Barlaston Common; and freshly prepared food, well presented without fuss on what was obviously a busy day at the office. What a delight to come across such welcoming and accommodating hospitality in this country and how different from the frequent response, "Sorry. We're fully booked". Well worth another visit and possibly a stay to visit the Wedgewood Museum or Trentham Gardens.
