As excellent as you would expect of a Titanic Brewery pub with a full range of the classics – even if the divine Chocolate and Vanilla Stout wasn’t on tap on this occasion. In truth, the Plum Porter beats all other Titanic beers hands down still while they had the Gran Reserve version in very large bottles. A decent craft section was augmented by an offering from oxford’s up and coming Tap Social while the guest ales were also well chosen. Busy of a Saturday lunchtime in advance of a visit from Preston North End to Stoke City.

The White Start didn't quite look like the picture above, on a very snow Saturday evening visit to Stoke. We dodged the bouncer and entered via the side door. The clientele seemed to be a lot younger than I remember and the atmosphere was a bit more lively. But it was not as crowded as it can normally get on a matchday. But perhaps the result and the weather influenced that. The young bar staff seemed a bit full of themselves. Ales were Titanic White Star, Captain Smiths, Plum Porter & Steerage, Everard's Tiger, Welbeck Abbey Red Feather, Fat Cat EPA & White Horse Blowing Stone. Ciders were Snail's Bank Tumbledown & Broadoak Draught & Moonshine.

After a couple of very good ales in the Wheatsheaf I wandered around the corner to the Titanic Breweries tap White Star. 12.30pm when I arrive and just like the 'spoons its pretty busy already with doorman on as there’s football on.

4 ales from Titanic on the hand pumps so I have a few pints of White Star @ 4.5%. White Star is normally a good ale and on this occasion it was no different, not badly priced at £3.10 a pint.

The pub is completely open plan with the bar in the centre that splits the front bar / drinking area and the rear seating area. The décor is pleasant, all the staff wear t shirts with crew on the back which is a nice touch, the ales good, the location is good so I cannot really fault this pub. Only to say it’s one of these places that feels when it’s busy you need to be in a crowd and not on your own like I was on this trip.

If I return to Stoke I will make another visit here.

An entirely civilised place, done out in what has to be Titanic’s house style – very much like the Sun in Stafford. 10 handpumps serving 6 Titanic beers, and 4 guests. Unfortunately (like the Sun again) the only dark Titanic beer was the Plum Porter, which I’d drunk elsewhere the previous day, so I settled for the Steerage which was bearable. Plenty of Titanic memorabilia on the walls. I didn’t tru the food, but it looked good – if expensive. Since the road outside has been pedestrianised, there are now some tables and benches out front.

7/10 – a good pub but not outstanding

Made a return visit to the White Star yesterday evening. It seemed quieter than normal. But there was still a good range of ales - Titanic White Star, Capt Smiths, Plum Porter, Iceberg & Steerage, Everards Tiger, Ossett Big Red, Elgoods Snickalmas & Feel Good Festive & Thwaites Yule Love It. No plastic glasses or bouncer this time around. But the White Star was lacking atmosphere. But, we did manage to avail ourselves of an offer for 8 bottles of Chocolate & Vanilla Stout for £9!
