It has been earmarked as for conversion to Hungry Horse and will be refurbished in line with this.

This thus offers the successful candidate an exciting opportunity to lead the team in a successful conversion from Fayre & Square to HH.

It's trading area is of a good size with Wacky Warehouse situated downstairs from the main restaurant.

The Darlaston is situated on the outskirts of Stone in the middle of a roundabout on the main A34 which links Stone to Stoke and Newcastle and also the M6. It thus gets a lot of passing traffic between these and also tourists visiting Monkey Forest which is very close nearby at Trentham
