Nestled in the heart of Stafford, The King’s Horse, part of the Greene King chain, isn’t just any pub – it’s a family-friendly haven where good times and good food reign supreme.
Whether you’re a seasoned pub-goer or a hungry explorer seeking a hearty meal, this place has something to satisfy every appetite and every member of the crew, including your furry four-legged friend!
The menu at The King’s Horse includes the classics of British pub fare, with generous portions and enticing aromas that will have your stomach grumbling in anticipation. At the carvery you’ll find a majestic spread of roast meats, crispy potatoes, fluffy Yorkshire puddings, and an array of tempting vegetables.
But the carvery isn’t the only star of the show. The pub meals deserve their own royal fanfare, with pub classics like fish and chips, juicy burgers, and comforting pies, plus plenty of options tailored for children. And let’s not forget the puddings!
The King’s Horse isn’t just about the deliciousness – it’s also incredibly wallet-friendly. The prices are refreshingly reasonable, perfect for a family outing. You won’t find any highway robbery here, just honest-to-goodness value for money.
While the adults indulge in pub fare and conversation, the little ones won’t be left out. The King’s Horse has a dedicated soft play area inside, a playground outside, and little toy machines applenty.
The play areas are all free to access to customers, so whether you’re there for a meal or just looking for somewhere to stop for a drink and packet of crisps on your adventures around Stafford, The King’s Horse is ideal. You can also book the soft play area for private parties if you’re in town for a special occasion!
Dog lovers, rejoice! The King’s Horse welcomes dogs with open arms (and water bowls) in the bar area. There’s plenty of space for them to stretch their paws and make new friends, while you enjoy your meal without worry.
The only downside is the children’s play area is across the other side of the restaurant, and in an area your pooch isn’t welcome. So if you’re planning a trip with the kids AND the dog, you need to be aware of this in advance and either rotate adult supervision, or be willing to trust your children out of sight.
