Bistro Le Coq, French Restaurant, Stowe by Chartley, Near Stafford
Bistro Le Coq is situated in the Staffordshire village of Stowe by Chartley, seven miles from the county town of Stafford. The Cock Inn is believed to date from the 15th Century, and has been established as a local hostelry for many years.
In 2003, it changed hands, and as the new owners, we set about creating a new dining concept for this village pub.
Confirmed Francophiles, we decided to create “a little taste of France in a country Inn”, and so, ‘Bistro Le Coq’ came into existence. With the help of a French Chef, Bertrand Le Clercq, we tried to create a range of classic French Bistro menus, which incorporate many southern French specialities not found elsewhere, either locally or nationally.
Alongside the pretty Bistro dining room is a small bar where both diners and locals can enjoy a drink or a cup of Coffee. True to its roots as a village pub, a range of traditional hand pulled cask ales are offered, together with draught and bottled continental lagers. In the winter, on cold nights, drinkers and diners can enjoy the pleasures of a warming real fire in the large fireplace. As well as great food, an excellent wine list is offered with a good range of French, European and New World wines.
Whatever your choice in food, you will receive a warm welcome from our friendly staff.

We Went to Le Coq last Wednesday for lunch. The food was fantastic, best in the area, and the service was brilliant.

My wife’s favourite restaurant, although the cost was a little expensive by our standards it was excellent value, beer was fantastic and the wine good. It is to be thoroughly recommended. Booking is essential.
