About our venue

Situated just off the A34 at Junction 14 of the M6, The Shire Horse is an impressive Chef & Brewer food house. Purpose built in 2002 we look and feel much older than we actually are. With three open fires and small secluded dining areas everyone can feel at home in the cosy olde worlde style surroundings. You can expect to be welcomed by friendly staff, be offered a fine range of beers and real ales at the bar as well as being shown a food menu full of choice. Like all Chef & Brewers we employ high quality Chefs who not only prepare meals from the main menu but rustle up unique monthly changing Specials. All our meals are prepared from the freshest of ingredients and cooked to order. To fully appreciate your chosen dish we offer a superb selection of wines and, of course, tea or coffee to finish. The Sunday roast is a particular favourite to people in the know and you are very welcome to try it out too. Al fresco dining is preferred by many during the summer with the pub having both a garden and patio. We are happy to take bookings for large dining parties. We have a Premier Inn next door which attracts passers by and business people. Everyone is invited to our monthly big event which is always fun. Our area is full of attractions such as Stafford Castle less than two miles away, we are close to Staffordshire County Show Ground and less than ½ an hour from Alton Towers and Trentham Gardens. You surely have to visit us soon?
