user reviews of the King's Arms, Stafford

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

The King's Arms is a really nice backstreet boozer that is clearly popular. By the time we left at 12:50, it was already really busy. Bass is always on and the guests were Steam Box Golden Bolt, Morrell's Champion & Black Sheep Best Bitter & Monty Python's Flying Circus. There were also 4 ciders - Gwynt y Ddraig Farmer's Pride & Weston's Rusted Wheel, Flat Tyre & Hand Brake. A gin festival was also advertised. Football was showing on the TV and there is a dartboard in a prominent position. It offers a CAMRA discount too. Good pub and one of the best in Stafford.

The sort of back street terrace boozer that you didn’t realise still existed ! [ Though there seem to be a few in this area of north Stafford ] Visited there on a Friday afternoon when it was really quiet, and obviously the locals all knew each other. But I was made more welcome there than some other places nearby that I could mention ...

There is a central bar around which everyone seems to congregate – though there is plenty of other seating, mainly in the “fag-stain green” plush vinyl that I remember from the 1980s !

It’s been a while since I visited, and I didn’t make any notes, but I do remember that I was spoilt for choice with the 4 beers available all being ones that I liked. I think they were Bass, Black Sheep, Castle Rock Harvest Gold and Thornbridge Kipling. Anyway, I chose the last (partly because it was the one I would least expect to see in an establishment like this), and it was entirely reasonable.

The main drawback is that Sky Sports is shown on (a couple of) large screen TVs, with sound on – even though nothing was actually happening.

A few other miscellaneous bits :- there is a darts board, though no-one was playing ; the barman spent most of his time sitting on the windowsill with his laptop ; I believe they do bar-snacks, but will check.

6/10 – “I will return next time I am in Peel Terrace” – as Arsenal Fan 36 would say !

Proper locals' pub, darts, pool, no sawdust or carpets but a great atmosphere and excellent beer. No frills, just a non-nonsense boozer. I did find a flea, but whether it was indigenous or imported by a customer is impossible to say. Three ales on, I tried the Carn Brae Celtic Blonde and it was a great refreshing pint. Another hidden gem in Stafford's back streets which would form a brilliant addition to any crawl.
