Don’t eat the pulled steak and ale pie as ours was dry - we ordered two of them The waitress was rude and the ice cream desert was pretty pathetic and one didn’t even turn up The fish and chips was nice though apparently

I am not sure why this place has less than 4stars reviews. It was amazing! The pie meal i had was really delicious. Definitely the best place by far we have been around Burton and Lichfield area.
