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.

    Very easy and quick to book online. The staff in particular the waitress unfortunately who's name I never got was very helpful. Initially we were given a large table, too large for out intimate party of three but she quickly changed our table to a smaller one in a better location. Our food came quickly despite being busy and was delicious.

    Getting seated was a little slow, had to wait a while for meal as well, overall, we would not go back again

    Was a little disappointing. Waited 35 minuets for the starters to arrived then I ordered a drink from the drinks menu. The waitress didn't know what it was and then told me they had not got the ingredients , pineapple juice and lemon grass with soda. Then ordered desserts, was told no sticky toffee pudding so asked for sherry triffle when she returned was told they only had 1 left.

    Not as good as usual. My family and I are regulars at the Tame Otter. Booked for Father's Day as we had an amazing meal on Mother's Day this year. Arrived at 3pm and didn't seem overly busy and yet it took 25 minutes to receive our drinks. Food arrived after a 30 minute wait and it was barely warm and vegetables were hard. Food is usually amazing and service very good so won't be put off this time but if it happens again we won't go back.

    Table by door, cold breeze
    Got order wrong even though waitress noted details down
    Cola on draft was totally tasteless and flat, waitress did exchange for bottle, stated that barrel being changed?????

    Vintage inns excel in using cheaper or less popular cuts of meat and producing good priced dishes cooked to perfection.There is a good range of ales and wines and the canal side setting is lovely on a sunny day.
