In the old village of Swynnerton on Lord Stafford’s estate is the spruce and dog-friendly Fitzherbert, perfect for a pint after a winter's walk. Bar, lounge and snug are warmed by three delicious fires. A vivacious team ferry platefuls of flavoursome food to elegant tables: seafood platters, steak and stout pies, crumbles, brownies and local cheeses. They do a great line in comfort food, have a good list of local suppliers, and Staffordshire ales star at the pumps. That's before you factor in the biggest selection of port by the bottle of any pub in the UK (they're the UK's first Graham's Port Ambassador), 16 wines by the glass and real cider, too. The 1818 building once held a forge and the Anvil Room has leather wingback chairs, and hops above a soft-lit wall. Gather a party of up to 40, and book the Staffordshire Room for a very special occasion.
