Fitzherbert Arms

Back in the Shire (Staffordshire) lies an English hearty pub which I can confidentally say all foodies out there would LOVE.

A perfect setting with flavoursome and wholesome home-cooked food 😍

Here’s my first visit a few months back for my friends of 15 years to be reunited – candlelit decor to set the scene.

The Pinot was flowing and before we knew it we all pretty much tried out the famous local ale battered haddock and chips with tartar sauce πŸ‘

As you can see, the portion sizes are very generous here which is always a plus.

I then tried out the seafood special of the day, which was drenched in a tomato & asparagus sauce. This was another successful dish filled with perfectly cooked prawns & mussels, even though the presentation wasn’t all that…Now on to my most recent visit, and this week was all about burgers, brownies & white wine spritzers πŸ‘ŒπŸ·

The Porterhouse burger with bacon and melted cheddar – say no more…

Again, nothing to complain about here and a very fulfilling portion size to keep us foodies happy! Served perfectly medium-rare πŸ‘Œ

On to the puddings and the “boozy cherries” were something I was unsure about at first, but I took the gamble and it paid off in the end – really moist and chocolatey and the booziness of the cherries provided a great balance to the dish.

I also found the presentation of the food had improved since my last visit – apart from the appearance of my friend’s smoked fish pie with smoked haddock below, it tasted amazing! Very cheesy and a great amount of seafood including smoked trout in there.

To get a feel for more of the dishes, here’s a snap of the old-school menu;

As you can see, there’s something for everyone!

If in the area, I’d definitely recommend paying this place a visit πŸ˜πŸ”πŸ·πŸ‘Œ
