This is a busy neighbourhood pub with a mature clientele and a good early doors trade. The pub is comprised of one large, rambling bar, replete with nooks and crannies; there is a walled patio along the front of the pub for smokers. There is a quiz on Sundays, and no Sky Sports. After being called The New Smithy for around 15 years, the pub reverted to its original name of The Archer in June 2016, much to the delight of the locals; Hop Back brew a house beer for the pub under the same name. AWARDS: CAMRA Potteries Pub of the Month April 2017.
