About Stafford Arms

The Stafford Arms is an independently-owned pub with its history dating back to the 16th Century, and has been in the hands of its current owners for the past 20 years.

Situated in the picturesque village of Bagnall in front of the Village Green, The Stafford Arms is at the centre of Staffordshire life, providing a social meeting place for an informal drink, a light lunch or a full a la carte meal. This picture postcard pub with log burning open fires and Homemade cuisine, offers diners and drinkers an easy, relaxed atmosphere.

The menu covers an exciting range of homemade dishes, from modern British classics to the more contemporary. They can be enjoyed in our award winning Stafford Dining Room, Stables Dining Room or even a cosy corner of bar, and when the sun shines one of our Patio areas.

If its a pint, a glass or two of wine, a bar snack or an evening of fine dining, The Stafford Arms provides a striking setting to experience outstanding food and exceptional service in a truly relaxed atmosphere.

We sat in the 'new' section of the restaurant which is beautiful and so totally different in atmosphere - still very nice. Service was excellent, just enough time to wait. A do think the pricing is a little high, but the food is very nice and good to try something a little different. Would definitely recommend and will certainly return, but for an occasion rather than just dropping in for lunch

Although my wife and I ordered pie we were told that the Broccoli stems had gone(7.30?) I have to admit that the alternative(green beans) were very nice As least you got rid of kale

As always excellent food and service and even though there was a funeral wake when we arrived our table was ready and waiting for us and no delays whatsoever. This is our go to place as in our opinion the Stafford Arms is the best foodie pub in the area.

The food presentation was spot on and was absolutely delicious! The only downside to our experience was waiting around for the waitress to take our order which was around 20-30 minutes until I went over and asked her to take our order. Also when asking for more drinks taking 20 minutes to be brought over to the table. I would visit again as the food was brilliant value for money and the pub itself is really nice.

Gorjus food and friendly staff however I did not like that we had to pay a 10% service charge when the pub was empty... That let the pub down alot as its alot of money when we pre booked food and made it as easy a s possible for the pub to start with.

The service was attentive (we were served by a blonde female, tied back hair) who was friendly & couldn’t be more helpful), the food exquisite & the value was phenomenal. We can’t wait to visit again.

Lots of noisy children and the parents were not trying to control them which disrupted other tables, staff should ask them to do so

Second year enjoying a meal on Boxing Day, the service is the best I've had anywhere. No long waits for food to arrive or for empty plates to be cleared, yet we never felt as though we were being hassled to leave either.

Had to wait a while for drinks, we asked one of the team, soon as the drinks had been placed on the table. The food followed. Food was lovely though, really enjoyed. There wasn't much service or interaction from the floor team, plates were cleared. No thanks or anything, then she returned to hand us a dessert menu... with a response of 'dessert menu' before handing it to us even though we didn't request to see it. All minor. It was my first visit. The visit was for food and the food was spot on. Lovely pub, nice setting- restaurant. I will be back. Thanks.
