user reviews of Littleton Arms, Penkridge

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

The Littleton Arms easily exceeded my expectations. Yes, it's an upmarket hotel, restaurant and bar. But, the ale range was varied. On cask were Ossett Yorkshire Blonde, Beowulf Dark Raven, Thwaite's Wainwright, Salopian Lemon Dream, Enville Ale & Jenning's Cumberland Ale. There are also craft beers and an interesting selection of craft beers in cans, that are well-priced. There were a fair few people in the bar area and many more drinking in the outdoor area. A good start to a trio of Penkridge pubs.

We have visited the Littleton at least once a year since 2009 for meals since stumbling upon it while in the area. We enjoyed the 'can do' attitude and good food then and continue to do so. The young team always seem welcoming and happy to help.
Yes the food can be a bit 'pretentious' and pricey, but it has always been good value and very enjoyable in our experience. Food is locally sourced wherever possible.
There's usually a good selection of ales on tap and it looks as though there are various lagers/lager beers available on tap/in bottles too. Wine can be a bit steep, but always good quality.
It's certainly more of a dining pub (and hotel/inn) than a 'local' but seems to be popular - best to book ahead for meals.
We have stayed overnight and recommend that too.
If you don't mind paying that bit more it's well worth a visit.

The menu is a bit on the pretentious side for a pub. But, having said that, the ham and wild rabbit pie was delicious.
The pub is warm, comfortable and clean.
They serve a great pint of Burton Porter, too.

The Littleton is well worth a visit if you want something a bit different.

It serves some quality lagers including Staropramen, as well as some quality ciders, real ales and wines.

I first visited about 2 years ago and was very impressed with the food even if it was a little pricey. Since then the menu has shrunk slightly, but the last time I visited it was still impressive. Even the cheese board was pretty exciting, offering toffee flavoured chedder (surprisingly pleasent).

Huge former coaching in, with very interesting outbuildings, in the middle of Penkridge. Now also a hotel and eatery. The outside has a beer patio. The building is nicely rendered and displays '1793' proudly, ironic as all the internal features have been ripped out to make a trendy place, with sofas, high chairs and meaningless art. The music was tasteful and not too loud. Service was very friendly.

Beer wise, the usual, with more lager choice and Bombardier on keg - eh? Handpulls included; Spekky Hen, Slater's Top Totty and Titanic First Class, which was fine.

This is the sort of place you would take the wife to eat, but not the family. I would quite like to try the food, as a pub its worth a visit
