Restaurants in Staffordshire enjoy a wide variety of environments. The Peak District in the north is a beautiful area of hills and villages, while Cannock Chase in the south offers a landscape of wild, romantic moorlands. In between, towns and cities such as Stoke-on-Trent, Newcastle-under-Lyme and Stafford provide busy urban centres. You can expect everything from the most stylish city cafe bar to traditional and cosy country inns. Cuisines are similarly varied and you can enjoy the very best of Asian, European and British cooking. There's a lot to choose from but you can find the leading Staffordshire restaurants here on Quandoo and book your table in just a few clicks.
From excellent cheese to delicious ales, Staffordshire restaurants enjoy access to some outstanding local ingredients and products. The Tavern in Denstone is a good example of traditional dishes done well. Toad in the hole served with mash and a sticky onion gravy is a hearty favourite and a slow-cooked lamb shank in a minted jus is just melt in the mouth tender. Their range of succulent steaks are made with the excellent local beef and are another standout.
Indian food is another strength of this county and there are plenty of Indian restaurants in Staffordshire offering an excellent choice of dishes from all across the subcontinent. India Red over in Hednesford, for example, does a delicious Peshwari lamb dish from North Punjab, cooked with cinnamon and cardamom in an Alphonso mango sauce. If you find yourself in Stoke, meanwhile, Mirchi serves a delicious fusion of British ingredients and Indian spicing with their lamb Shank rogan josh.
