A bit about us

Tucked in the midst of the historic buildings of Stafford market centre, The Market Vaults reflects Stafford’s historic past. Established in 1800, and with its original windows, fascia and cornice design, we are dedicated to doing justice for this Grade II listed building. We work hard to maintain the pubs natural old-time charm.

Serving fresh food with local ingredients, our specially created menu is designed to fill the soul as well as your stomach. Our amazing variety of juicy burgers all include local beef patties from our local Master Butcher Perry's of Eccleshall, proud winners of the Countryside Alliance - Best Butcher in Britain Award. We are known for our fantastic creations, such as our Scotch Egg burger, The Death Star burger, and Lamb Kofte burger, and we have new creations all the time!

We serve a selection of real ales, Guinness, IPAs, lagers, and ciders, as well as a large selection of bottles. We have also been recognised by CAMRA – Campaign for Real Ale, as an establishment who prides itself on quality ales. We are sport lovers, so we love showing key sports events on our large screen projector. We are dog friendly, you can find some four-legged treats on the bar, and child friendly until 9pm, so please ask us for our children’s menu. So whether it’s for a mid-week bite, drinks after work, watching sport, or enjoying the weekend we have a spot for you.


In recent times we are delighted to have been awarded a number of awards, which can be found on display in the pub, as we want to share all our achievements with our fantastic patrons!


Our knowledgeable and friendly team look forward to welcoming all visitors to our warm and inviting pub at the heart of the community.
