user reviews of Congress Inn, Stoke on Trent

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

The Congress is certainly one of the better pubs in Stoke-on-Trent. Behind the bar, they have the runners up certificate awarded to them for the CAMRA Potteries pub of the year. I visited the winner back in August and the Congress isn't far behind. On our New Year's Day visit, they had 7 ales on and 2 ciders. The ale selection was Townhouse Gladstone's Strong Ale, Barney's Christmas Stout, Meridian Mild & Kristal Weisse, Wadworth 6X, Three Tuns Castle Porter & Great Gable Pastures Anew. The ciders fetched from the cellar were Mr Whitehead Newtons Discovery & Westons Old Rosie. We particularly enjoyed the 8.5% porter. Both staff and customers were friendly and ordered us a taxi to the football stadium. A big screen was showing live football. Drinks were well priced and the toilets are some of the biggest I have seen.

It's really in Longton. Great place. Superb choice of ale from mild to golden to red to porter/stout, just as it should be. Something for everyone.

Big street corner boozer. Several rooms and decent courtyard. Quality ale and informed staff

Old school drinkers pub with some folk in their Sunday best and others with facial bruises and grazed knuckles. Friendly enough though. Had a few decent pints of Gladstone Special IPA.

won Potteries pub of the year 2011 by all accounts. Very busy when we called in last saturday afternoon. Stoke City playing on TV so full house and a good choice of ales. Worth a visit.
