The pub is found in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, ST4 1BU.

This town-centre Wetherspoon's outlet has become a fixture in the Good Beer Guide, and justifiably so, with a good selection of well-kept beers sourced from across the country. The staff always take that extra step to ensure customer satisfaction. Meet the Brewer and brewery-themed beer festivals are becoming fixtures and the pub supports local brewers, with ales from Lymestone and Slater's often to be found on the bar. A most convivial addition to the JDW chain. 12 handpumps in 2 banks, each of 6.

We have visited this pub 13 times, seen 66 different beers and tried 41 of them.
