user reviews of Pig & Bell, Rugeley

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


Dr. William Palmer , the infamous 19th century poisoner once lived next door to this pub. It is claimed that the old Staffordshire drinking expression, "What's your poison?" asked when
offering to buy someone a drink, originated from Palmer. It is said that when there were
rumours flying around about him having poisoned people he would use the
phrase as a joke at his own expense in the Bell. He was hanged in 1856. Interesting eh?

Didn't have time to go in but beer range supports SIBA.
