user reviews of the New Smithy Inn, Wolstanton

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

I found it rather strange finding a Hopback pub in Staffordshire. But here it is. 6 real ales are served - Morland Original, Marstons Pedigree, Hopback Crop Circle & Summer Lightning, Champion Ale & Moles Landlords Choice. The cider was Westons Old Rosie. But it was unfortunately off. Whilst the welcome was friendly, there was a strange smell which was immediately noticeable on entry. The bar and lounge are separated by a disused fireplace and a small step. The bar has bare floorboards, whilst the lounge is carpeted. Not quite as good as the Black Horse in Chesterton nearby. But still a reasonable pub. I would also recommend trying the Cricketers Arms just over the park, whilst you're in the area.

Great Pub with a good range of cask ales. The sevice has improved alot since new management took over a couple of years ago. Well worth a visit.

Excellent range of cask conditioned ales with an ever-changing guest list.

Reasonable prices and no loud music or slot machines

Oldest pub in the area, built around 1790, formerly known as The Archer.

Constantly changing guest ales, low prices, friendly atmosphere.
