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.

    Hello, I regret that we were very unsatisfied with our visit to The Wolseley Arms. We had arranged this meal for an elderly relative who had just lost her husband, it was a treat to help her at a sad time. Despite a promising welcome, our meals left much to be desired and at a less sensitive time I would certainly have drawn pointed attention to the poor quality served up for us. Why people serve hot food on cold plates is an elementary error and simply shouldn't happen, but it did. As for the quality of the food, Roast potatoes that are burnt on the outside but not cooked through, Yorkshire puddings that were flat and soggy and were seemingly placed to hide the main components of the meal. A hot desert that was again served on a cold plate and had to be replaced. In conclusion, we like this venue but the food wasn't up to standard on our visit and we won't be visiting again.
