We Buy Any Bike have put together a handy little biker’s guide for your next outing to Stoke-on-Trent!
Situated in central England within the county of Staffordshire, Stoke-on-Trent was formed around 6 old towns; Tunstall, Burslem, Hanley, Stoke, Fenton & Longton. Since its formation in 1910, it has developed a population of an ever-growing 383,000 making it the 62nd most popular city in England. Not only is it known for its ceramics, but unknown to some, Stoke-on-Trent was the birthplace of the Spark-plug, invented by Sir Oliver Lodge. Little did he know how much his creation would shape the future.
Stoke-on-Trent or Staffordshire, in general, has a lot of great biker cafes and hangout spots for you to have a break and a chit-chat on your next ride-out!
Biker Cafe’s & Hang Outs
Chillz Bar, Burslem – To fully embrace the atmosphere, a great time to visit this place is on a Sunday night, which seems to be popular with bikers. This may or may not be because Sunday night is band night, but nevertheless, formerly known as The Huntsman, this bar offers great customer service.
The Freebird – This multi-award winning free-house is very welcoming towards bikers. Based in Newcastle under Lyme, the guys at the Freebird together with Greedy Pigs MCC host an event around Easter time to show off their bikes for charity! The pub also hosts band nights on the first & last Thursday of every month.
Shobnall Sports & Social Club – Commonly known as the Rockbar, this bar is run by the Unwanted MCC! Based 40 minutes outside of Stoke-on-Trent in Burton-on-Trent it may come as no surprise that the Rockbar is probably the most biker-friendly bar in the area. Since 2009, the team have made a few alterations to mainly the stage area, changing the whole place into a little Live Music Venue! The bar is open to the public on a Friday night. The Unwanted MCC also host occasional events and camping!
