Please be assured that the safety of our team and customers remains our number one priority and we are doing everything and more to remain diligent.  We have developed new ways of working based on previous government guidance and internal policies.  We are continuing to keep many safety measures in place.

From Monday 19th July, with restrictions being eased, we will be continuing to take the following precautions for the safety of our customers and team:

  • Regular lateral flow testing of staff
  • Temperature and scent checks for all Aston Marina employees on arrival for their shift
  • Team members to wear masks
  • Socially distanced tables
  • Customers advised to continue to check-in using the track and trace QR code
  • Temperature checks of customers on arrival

We’ll be closely monitoring the latest guidelines, making adjustments when required.

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.
