Best Western Stoke-on Trent Moat House
Etruria Hall, Festival Way, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, ST1 5BQ
Friendly and relaxed are the watchwords for the staff at the Best Western Stoke-on-Trent Moat House and they make sure that's the atmosphere diners enjoy here. As it is part of the Best Western hotel group, a certain standard is guaranteed and that extends to the restaurant, which is open to hotel residents and non-residents alike.
Situated in Etruria Hall, a Grade ll-listed house which was the former home of Josiah Wedgwood, founder of the famous pottery built in the late 1700s, the hotel also has a modern annexe.
The team of chefs here pride themselves on creating tasty European-style food with a distinctly British flavour. Diners can choose from a pleasing menu delivered to their table in the comfortable modern dining area by knowledgeable and well-trained staff and enjoy their meal taking in the restaurant's muted tones and clean lines.
With a variety of steaks, salads and pasta dishes on offer, diners are guaranteed to find something that appeals.
The Best Western Moat House would be an ideal place to refuel following a day out at nearby theme park Alton Towers, just a 20-minute drive away, or, closer to hand, Stoke-on-Trent's Waterworld attraction which is just round the corer on the redeveloped Festival Park.
Close at hand too are the famous china works for which The Potteries are famous. A few hours touring Wedgwood or Royal Doulton and visiting the factory shops will certainly help you work up an appetite.
The Moat House also offers meals in the comfortable bar adjacent to the main restaurant and as the restaurant is closed on Sundays, this could offer a useful alternative with the hotel's chefs using the same fresh ingredients for the pub food-themed offerings. Diners are reminded to call ahead to the Best Western Stoke-on-Trent Moat House to check availability.
