About the Pub

Stafford's first micropub, opened in Nov 2015. Five beers, sourced from micro-breweries and up to 5 real ciders/perrys available. Food is of the micropub variety, crisps, nuts etc and includes locally sourced pork pies. The Floodgate holds accoustic music and artist events. All forms of artistic endeavour are encouraged, check their facebook page or contact the pub for details. The pub opens on Monday evenings once a month when events such as "tiny pub" concerts are held. The Floodgate deviates from "official" micropub standard somewhat, in that fruit wines and a good selection of whiskys are on sale - a deviation that many will approve! The pub name derives from the local council's insistence that flood defences had to be installed front and rear although nobody can remember any flooding in the area. The helpful owner has inscribed depth levels on the front barrier along with helpful depth tips such as "save the dog" and "imminent welly overflow". At chest height we are told "the pub is not half full it is half empty". Emergency waders are provided and a lifeboat may make an appearance. Well-behaved dogs are welcome and provided for. The pub operates an adult-only policy. The pub hours may vary, and it is advisable to check the pub's Facebook page for the current opening times and the current beers. The pub received a well deserved "Rising Star" award from the local CAMRA branch in March 2016 and was winner of the local CAMRA Urban Pub of the Year in 2017.
