The Apothecary Stafford
The Apothecary Stafford is a restaurant and cocktail lounge set within the walls of the old Post Office building in the centre of Stafford.
My partner and I were rather excited to be going to The Apothecary this evening as it has not long opened and we had heard many great reviews.
Walking up the red carpet and through the entrance we both said what a beautiful venue this is!
Soft lighting, wooden floors, lots of different seating areas and a huge staircase leading to the cocktail lounge upstairs, The Apothecary is stunning.
We were greeted by Athena the Restaurant Manager who showed us to our table, and who was very attentive and helpful throughout the evening.
We were given the menu and wine list and after ordering a bottle of Pinot Grigio we began to look at the delightful dishes that were on offer to us.
For starters I chose the duck spring roll, hoisin dip (£6.75) and my partner having the breaded brie bites, panko breadcrumbs, and cranberry compote (£4.75).
For our main course I decided on the marinated chicken breast hanging kebab, served with mushrooms and cherry tomatoes, thin chips, coleslaw and a choice of sauce (£12.50) and my partner opting for the beer battered fish and chips, mushy peas and pancetta, glazed lemon and tartar (£12.50).
Whilst soaking up the beautiful surroundings our starters arrived. Both looked and tasted delicious.
A short time after, our mains were presented to us and we couldn’t wait to try these dishes as the presentation was superb.
My chicken hanging kebab and my partner’s fish were cooked beautifully with great flavours too, which we both thoroughly enjoyed.
It was now time to look at the dessert menu and we both said we would share, however, once we saw our favourite desserts on there, we soon had enough room for one each. We ordered the warm chocolate brownie, chocolate sauce and vanilla pod ice cream (£5.50) and the raspberry crème brulee with homemade shortbread biscuit (£5.50).
Both desserts were one of the best we had tried, and were truly scrumptious.
We had a brilliant evening dining at The Apothecary and both stated that we will be coming back very soon!
