About the Pub

Named after Stapleford's celebrated son - its former MP, international diplomat and celebrated Naval war admiral. A large cannon greets upon entering and paintings of naval battles are accompanied by other nautical decorations. Even the toilets feature portholes for mirrors and windows. Situated on the site of the former Stapleford Health Centre, medicine bottles pressed into the bar-front and across the back shelving offer a throwback to locals. Meals are the usual Wetherspoon menu as is seating and layout. Unusually, the kitchen counter is opened up allowing diners a greater glimpse into meal preparation. Outside a patio style seated area 'opens' up the pub in warmer weather.
