Summer is without a doubt the best time to visit Stafford, the surrounding countryside is breathtaking and for lovers of history, castles, monuments and famous beauty spots you will find these dotted around the county in abundance. The really good news is the Staffordshire local businesses are going the “2 metre” distance to welcome visitors to their town ensuring any visit is safe and enjoyable.
Enjoy Stafford’s Historic Centre This Summer
Stafford’s historic centre is full of artisan cafes, independent restaurants and traditional pubs offering a great selection of locally sourced quality produce, plus a distinctly mouthwatering collection of diverse international cuisine. Excellent stay safe measures have been put in place with many retailers operating one-way systems in shops. Social distance guidelines are prominently displayed around Stafford and many eateries are staggering tables and limiting numbers to provide a safe and pleasurable experience.
Where necessary staff are provided with masks and gloves featuring interesting and amusing patterns prompting plenty of conversation starters and in many cases strict sanitation is in place in areas where crossovers can’t be avoided.
So with all these great initiatives in place we have put together our handpicked selection of tried and tested cafes so that when you arrive you can simply….eat!
