Offering views over the snaking River Trent, farmhouse-style pub The Wolseley Arms serves time-honoured British cuisine from a trusty menu. A former coaching inn based in Staffordshire, the pub features exposed brickwork, chunky oak beams and tartan-clad furnishing, while a pretty gravel courtyard caters for al fresco dining come the summer.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Wolseley Arms 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 ‘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.

The picturesque Cannock Chase is a 14-minute drive from The Wolseley Arms in Stafford, with Shugborough Hall just a 6-minute drive away.

    Good service, good food but the pies could have had a little more filing I them. I had steak and a colleague had chicken but it was impressive only because of the pie crust.

    Food excellent as always and served with a smile. We particularly like the Gherkin Relish which is served with the burgers.

    I booked on line and did advise that one of our party was in a wheelchair but we were still placed at a fairly inaccessible table which meant we had to disturb other diners both on entry and exit which is highly embarrassing for the person in the wheeIchair. I appreciate that the restaurant was busy and given that, the time waiting for food was acceptable, however we ordered more drinks when our main course was delivered but didn't receive them until we had finished it and then they were not actually what we had asked for! Also our desserts were served two short which we had to remind them about, it appeared they had been forgotten! Food was excellent, surroundings very pleasant and staff very friendly.
