The Brushmakers’ Arms

The Brushmakers’ Arms, Oulton, Staffordshire ST15 8UW

Redbrick corner pub with a slightly urban feel, although in a quiet, off-the-beaten-track village near Stone. The heart of the pub is the bar, with quarry-tiled floor, dartboard and extensive bench seating. There’s also a small, cosy lounge right in the corner. Serves a couple of Thwaites beers plus one guest, but no food. A true classic of old-school pubs. Note the scarecrow with plastic barrel propped up against the wall. The Wheatsheaf a couple of doors down the road is now closed.

    Good choice. There's a fair few good traditional pubs round here, isn't there. I'm sure you've mentioned the pub in Dayhills and the nearby one in Milwich is also a belter. Manchester folk seem to think Stoke is a bit of a dump (see the Man City forum) but the pubs are as good as anywhere except Stockport.

  2. Although there have been a number of closures, this area still does seem to support some proper country pubs of the kind that has largely vanished from Cheshire.
