Oh, and try not to post in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS - it's considered shouting on the Internet!
The Greyhound has the best reputation for real ale as far as I have heard - good pub quiz, too. Although not as good as mine...
the greyhound is the bomb...guterd its days are numbered.
Yeh lets hope there is a glimmer of hope in savin the place. its horrible lookin out the window n seeing a building site. only good thing about that is it blocks the view of the prison!!!!!

Â£125,00 n you might get all the luxuries of your neighbours opposite!!!!!!!!!! sky, comfy bed etc etc. :lol
The universal pub (if thats the correct name)
I never really venture further into town than the Nelson or the Shrew. I know I can getting away with falling over drunk in there.
After umm 9 days and about 7 hungover mornings, I have to say my preferences are now.
1. The Grapes - Damn good music, not too many kids, very friendly.
2. Joxer Bradys - Probably gonna be my start off for evenings, good for lunch times and saving myself money by reading their fine selection of newspapers.
3. The Railway - Bit far in relation to the others, but a traditional town pub and very friendly.
Back in the day when rockers ruled Stafford, The Firkin and Surgery I probably would have considered my favourites. But since then Emos have taken over by storm.
Kinda like the Albion now as it has much entertainment, a pool table, dart board, great music, karaoke and guitaroke. Does cocktails though nothing chocolaty like Baileys milkshakes *sobs*, has lock ins, and I know the guy that runs the place and heâ€™s ace
EDIT: Ok I take back anything nice I said about the Albion. They were really mean to my mate that worked there
Before rockers took over Surgery it was Firkin ace.
Bionic was the best. Andy Meacham and Dean Meredith of Chicken Lips with our very own Rich Upsetter. If you were there you'll know those nights can't be repeated. . .
My long standing favourite bar which I always tend to go back to even if I haven't been for years is Joxers. All of us Irish students back in 1995 went there all of the time (it was a certified Irish Bar then) for a bit of the craic (not cocaine related). There was about six of us from N.Ireland all sat around taking the piss out of Adams and Paisley as we were muilti denominational. It's one of the first places I took my now wife for a date. I remember St. Paddy's day 1996 in there, fook me it was packed, think I only managed 2 pints, couldn't get served.
Today it retains a certain ambiance and atmosphere that is not found anywhere in else Stafford (not saying that other pubs are crap).
Indeed I was. I remember very little though.
I remember the Forester and Firkin used to sponser the Staffs Uni Snowboarding Club. We used to go there on wednesdays for Â£1 a pint Fosters (Wednesdays circa 1995/1996)
Went into the one opposite the Foresters earlier, had a sign up saying "Rocky Horror Fancy Dress" night or similar, don't think I'd like to go in there fully kitted out!
Does anyone else remember the Props of the 95-99 era? Trebles for Â£1.40 Mondays - Wednesdays.
No, me neither.
Ba dum bum-cha!!
During that time, those toilets can only be described as shameful.
As said earlier in thread. And girls got free drinks if they danced around a bit, like this
