Restaurants in Keele
Having read some scathing recent reviews I was a tad apprehensive of what to expect when we visited the Blockhouse at the Sheet Anchor for Sunday Lunch. Nevertheless we decided to go all in and chose the chicken strips starter followed by a shared Meat Sweats main. Ordering was a pleasure; the young lady attending to us was polite, friendly and as delightful as one could wish for. Drinks arrived promptly and we had very little waiting time before the food followed. The starter arrived piping hot and the batter surrounding the chicken was light and crispy. Two small bowls for the sauces, all excellent, accompanied the four strips (per portion) and a light garnish of finely chopped red and green mild chilli peppers brought colour to the dish. The main course was a banquet, a feast, a platter of beef, chicken, ribs, sausage etc with accompanying loaded fries, mac and cheese, garnish. Humungous and mouth-wateringly fabulous to behold. We dived in and found no fault whatsoever. A regular at one of Blockhouse's competitors I had to concede that this was the best grill and barbecue venue I had ever visited. The food was amazing, service delightful and surrounding decor most suitable. The other diners around us seemed equally impressed and there were no signs of negativity at all. A wonderful experience.

Had a lovely time at Whitmore Tea Rooms with my friends. Such a genuine place with lots of teas and food to choose from. We tried their oatcakes which were great, as well as the sponge cake. Definitely coming back for the afternoon tea ?

This visit to Keele SU was for Keele Day, an out of term time event for alumni.The SU has all the facilities you would expect, a bright, and spacious food and drink area with outdoor spaces, a bar and a ballroom. As a student, I went to a lot of concerts in there.There’s a shop off the foyer selling Keele SU merchandise.In the 1970s extension, were additional shops and a Gregs.All-in-all, it looked pretty good and it was great to be back there.

Having eaten here a couple of times and now hosted an event, I would highly recommend the venue and adjoining building next door to anyone. Not only is the service outstanding but the help and communication in the build up is fast and reassuring. James and his team run a beautiful pub where the food is varied, delicious and served with a smile, the choice of drinks plentiful and the atmosphere welcoming. Thank you all for making our night amazing! Can’t wait to find an excuse to come back soon xxxx

Enjoyable food as always. The only problem was, which was my fault I ordered a 6inch sub instead of a normal footlong which I regretted because the food was yum. Enough said.

The coffee shop is very neat and the service was also great. The shop was not at all crowded when I visited in the morning. The coffee was great and the ambience was also amazing.
