      The Bird in Hand a - Stafford tradition, Stafford has some pubs that seem to have been around since time immemorial and the "Bird" (as it's known ) is one of those, I can recommend the Bird as one of those pubs that you will laways find busy on a Friday & Saturday night, with a wide mix of people, from the student brigade to the older people,those who remained after student life and found work, it's the sort of pub where you get recognised if you go there often enough, I love Stafford and all it's spots like the Bird. There are 4 rooms in the Bird The Snug(small),The Bar with a telly(full of codgers), The lounge noisy with jukebox and a mix of people, and the pool room, well that's for playing pool. There is a fabulous beer garden too for those lovely Staffordshire Evenings. The cheese and potato pie is very yummy although I can't vouch for the other dishes as I'm a vegetarian.. ENJOY the Bird if you stop by and say Hello to Ron the landlord (if he's still there).

        A 'Good Grub Pub', check out the chilli (opt for the chilli and chips as oppose to rice) not too hot or mild just right! Mmmmmmmmm! Or, the cheese and onion pie (served in an individual pie dish with chips)lovely. This is probably one of the best pubs in Stafford, not a fun pub or too dingy, but just an old tastefully decorated one with nooks and crannies everywhere. As you enter, on your left is a small lounge like room where food is usually served during the day, on the right 'The Bar' or what was formally called 'Tap Room'(where all the 'old guys' go to watch horse racing etc)(don't be put off). Go through to the back and straight ahead you've a pool table in one room and the larger of the back rooms on the right leads to the beergarden (brilliant for the kids in summer). To get to the 'Bird In The Hand', walk up the alleyway by the side of McDonalds which is on the main street (Stafford is quite a small and quaint town, you can't miss McD's) I think the alleyway is called Fancy Walk (ooh!nice!) and it is at the top directly on your left, opposite the Court. If you're ever in Stafford give it and their bar meals a try, I'm sure you wont regret it. I wish I still lived in Stafford, surprising what you miss when you haven't got it!(could just eat their chilli and chips). Oh well...........
