Great Food. Great Service.

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 breakfast, lunch or dinner with us – 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.

You can download our menus below where you’ll find everything from breakfast oatcakes (which is only natural as we’re minutes away from Stoke-on-Trent), to a delicious two or three-course Sunday lunch.

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.
