It just depends what you want

It just depends what you want from a pub... Him indoors says The Coach and Horses is best for watching the football (they have 3 tele's)...what do I know about that!!
The Sneyd Arms and The Talisman are both good for food and I like The Tavern for the atmosphere on a saturday night.

The Furlong ticks all the

The Furlong ticks all the boxes, An array of beers and wine, good meals/snacks reasonably priced, caters for familys during the day and adults at night. Great entertainmant and speciality nights, good quiz nights. During the summer you can eat or drink out doors. Also the barstaff are friendly and will go that extra mile to find you a table for a meal if you have not booked one. Jackie and Mick have done a great job with this pub over the years.

I've just done a massive pub

I've just done a massive pub crawl of the majority of pubs in the area.
I did not know that the Sneyd Arms was not a pub, I do now obviously. Maureen told me with a look of disgust for even trying to suggest that the Sneyd was a pub!

As an ex-publican I admire the fine hospitality at the Furlong. Mick and Jackie work tirelessly to provide good quality products and a warm friendly atmosphere with the help of their excellent staff. I'm always made to feel very welcome and only wish my work commitments would allow me to visit more often.

The Talisman is a great pub

The Talisman is a great pub since it reopened. Chris and Mark are brilliant landlords and the rest of the staff are friendly too. The food is good as is the atmosphere of the pub.

Sorry I cant agree about the

Sorry I cant agree about the food in The Furlong, yes I agree it used to be good, but in the last 6 months I've had 3 bad meals there, all extremely greasy with poor cuts of meat, and the seats are badly in need of cleaning, I ruined a good dress in september from the filth that was on one of them. I shan't be going back in there untill I hear that its been refurbished.
I think that The Talisman has taken over from The Furlong on both the quality of food and the cleanliness of the place.

I think the Furlong has

I think the Furlong has wonderful staff, that are always welcoming with a smile and a lot of cheek.
Having moved away overseas for over 4 years I came back and went to the Furlong for a meal and what a welcome I received, I was remembered as a past patron (not on a regular basis). This to me proves that the Furlong is a great place to frequent.
As for the meals, well you get good and bad in all pubs but have to say that I have always had a good meal, with generous portions. The place can get extremely busy as the staff are always racing around clearing tables and getting them ready for the next patron, so they don't always get the time to check that the seats are clean, after all it is a family pub.

The Furlong is by far the busiest pub around the Tunstall area, with pleasant staff who will always go out of there way to accomodate your needs. Excellent 'home cooked' food, with an abundance of choices. Fantastic range of Traditional ales and lagers, Outstanding entertainment/theme nights. There's whispers of an extension to the restaurant sometime in 2012, Keep up the good work Jackie, Mick & the team you get my vote!!!
