Stafford station at speed, March 2000

An often busy but relaxing pub for over 21s, just a few yards from the railway station entrance. The pub was the Titanic brewery's second pub selling several of its wide range of beers but has now been taken over by Punch Taverns. They still sell a couple of the Titanic beers and I'd recommend the White Star (abv 4.8%), a fruity amber ale. Friendly, helpful staff. I ordered several meals with chips once and moments later the staff realised that there wasn't a potato left in the building. Instead of offering us our money back they sent one of their staff to the nearest chip shop. Fifteen minutes later 5 meals appeared, all with a generous portion of freshly cooked chips. I understand that since my most recent visit that they've appointed a new chef who's cooking some very fine dishes, so expect to be impressed if you order a meal here. Remember though that they don't do food on Sundays and anyhow, it's always wise to give them a quick call beforehand to find out when they stop serving foods..

The pub also offers several guest beers from independent breweries which are all well kept and popular with the locals and rail travellers like me who call in for a quick pint when changing trains. They've also a bar billiards table at the back end of the pub and a skittle alley.
