Serving well-loved British pub food and real ales since the 19th century, The Tame Otter enjoys a premium location on the Birmingham and Fazeley Canal, in the beautiful Staffordshire countryside. Featuring an eye-catching ivy-enclosed building, extensive, lush gardens with seating, and classic patterned red-brick walls, The Tame Otter is a country haven.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Tame Otter menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Tame Otter ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

Next to the Hopwas Hays Wood in the Staffordshire countryside, The Tame Otter is just 4 minutes’ drive into Tamworth.

    Great friendly service.
    Delicious food. I came for the Sunday roast : ) Both myself and children ate everything. We had a lovely clean table, in a warm location. And the bill was only £28 for food for our table of three. Which is very very fair.
    My only negative comment, and I only mention as so you can improve on what was an an extremely good dining experience; was that the Yorkshire pudding was very cold. Not a little warm. Very cold, as in fridge like temperature. Typically I didn't mention it at the time.

    The restaurant was very busy and only a few staff on. Our table was booked for 1.30 and there was already a 45 min delay on all food orders. I ordered the chicken blt which was boring, more bread than anything else and not very hot. My pudding apple sticky toffee was excellent!

    Not as good as normal. Cold food long wait.

    Nice atmosphere. Lovely smell of the wood fire. Lamb was nice but 3rd choice as they ran out of beef and pork at 3pm. Yorkshire pudding said home made but resembled 'Aunt Bessies'.
    They also forgot about our deserts and I had to remind them. Nearly 2 hours from start to finish.
