Great Food. Great Service.

We’ll Be Back Soon

Following the government announcement of another National Lockdown, we will sadly be remaining closed until further notice. Whilst we are so disappointed to hear this, safety remains our primary concern.

We want to thank all of our customers for your fantastic support during these challenging times – we are incredibly proud of our team and so lucky to part of such a wonderful community. As an independent family company, it goes without saying that we wouldn’t have grown to the business we are today without the unwavering support of our customers.

If you would like to support us further during this difficult time of closure, please consider enjoying one of our No.26 takeaways or treating your loved ones to a gift voucher. The team will be here as we continue to take orders for takeaway from Friday to Sunday each week.

We can’t wait to welcome you all back when the time is right!


Named for the canal lock that neighbours the marina, No.26 Bar & Dining promises a relaxed dining experience in surroundings designed to make the most of its waterside setting.

Our passion for using the finest quality ingredients, sourced from within Staffordshire wherever possible, is showcased in our seasonal menus, with vegetarian and gluten free options always available.

Whether you’re looking to enjoy lunch, dinner, drinks or simply enjoy a coffee and cake or a snack with a drink on the deck – you can rest assured of friendly, professional service with a smile.

Our convenient location between Stafford, Uttoxeter and Stoke-on-Trent makes us the perfect spot to enjoy a drink and catch up with friends. Relax in our comfortable bar area and indulge in drinks options ranging from Barista-style coffees and a selection of teas, to locally produced beers, an extensive wine list and house cocktails.

Whether you are dining with us or simply popping in for a drink, during fine weather plentiful alfresco seating will allow you to indulge while enjoying far-reaching views over the Staffordshire countryside.
