The Packhorse Inn, Crowdicote

Oh dear what can we say about this pretentious little inn? We went to the Packhorse on recommendation on Bank Holiday Monday and were there when it opened at midday (i.e. empty). Beautiful setting and lovely interior then spoilt within 5 minutes by a stroppy barmaid, being told exactly where we were required to sit (despite no reserved signs), having chairs and place settings taken away during our meal without a comment ('excuse me would you mind if....' would have been polite), meals cleared the second the last mouthful was taken and the ultimate snub (so they thought) - NO MINTS at bill time. We actually laughed all the way home from what was a lovely camping trip in nearby Longnor. Don't go here if you want a good country pub atmosphere as you just don't get it - it is a business designed to get the most cash from the most unsuspecting tourists. A much more pleasant option is The Cheshire Cheese in Longnor - you'll have a much better time and no snobbery there!

Ye Old Cheshire Cheese, Longnor

I can't rate this pub highly enough. It's smack in the middle of walking/camping country and they have a room inside the pub where you can take the dogs. They have brilliant ale choices, lovely food including staffordshire oatcoake conconctions and the best homemade chips ever tasted since nana's. More importantly the staff are without doubt the friendliest I've ever come across - nothing was too much trouble and they made a cold and rainy weekend an absolute delight. Don't be tempted to go to nearby (overhyped) Packhorse in Crowdecote - the comparison in service levels is frightening!
