A Passion for Food...

Our passion for food has seen us win numerous awards over the years, with our No.26 Bar and Dining venue named Staffordshire Independent Restaurant of the Year in 2019 & 2022 and regularly recognised in the Good Food Awards – culminating in the coveted Gold Seal for achieving gold awards three years in a row in 2022.

Our belief in quality extends to the ingredients we use in our menus; sourcing the finest seasonal ingredients as locally as possible from which our talented brigade craft menus that reflect seasonal flavours. Whether you’re joining us for a light lunch on the deck, a celebratory meal with family or friends or a fine private dining experience in our new dining room ‘The Hideaway’ you can rest assured of great food and service to match.

A Dream Destination...

For those looking for a truly special venue to get married or for larger celebrations, our superb weddings and events venue, The Boat House, offers a breath-taking backdrop, with your every need catered for by our award-winning events team so you can relax and enjoy your celebration. In 2021, we added to our events offering with new options for more intimate gatherings – including our private hire, Dining Domes on the deck; the charming Potting Shed for casual gatherings of up to 20 guests and the stunning new dining and events space ‘The Hideaway’ – ideal for private dining, intimate celebrations and business events.


A Landmark Marina

Lying roughly a mile along the towpath from the charming Georgian High Street of Stone – known as Staffordshire’s foodie capital and boasting a host of independent retailers as well as a packed calendar of festivals and events – it’s little wonder our marina is popular with long and short term moorers alike. We’ve invested significantly to ensure premium facilities in a picturesque setting for moorers and, no matter how long you stay, you can be sure of great service, a welcoming atmosphere and all you need to enjoy your time here at Aston Marina.

Charity & Community Support

The charities we are supporting this year are:

Our target is to raise over £5000 for these phenomenal causes.  We hope to achieve this through our own events, raffle prizes, auctions and donations.
