About The Pub
The Clifford Arms in Great Haywood is a traditional village pub offering a fine selection of cask-conditioned ales and guest beers together with a wide choice of freshly prepared, value for money meals and snacks. The pub has been a popular local as well as a stopping-off point for boaters, walkers and cyclists for many years – come along and find out why for yourself.

A Little Bit of History

The pub is named for the Clifford family. The Hon. Thomas Clifford (1732-1787) married The Hon. Barbera Aston, heiress to the Tixall Estate, in 1762. Although Tixall Hall was demolished in 1927, Tixall Gatehouse still stands and can be rented for self-catering holidays. Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned for a short time at Tixall in an effort to prevent her rescue from Chartley as part of the Babington Plot.

Thomas was descended from the Baron’s Clifford of Chudleigh which perhaps explains why there is another Clifford Arms pub in Devon.

Perfectly located to the Trent and Mersey canal (near canal bridge number 73), Shugborough Hall, and Cannock Chase.
