Former Castros To Reopen

Thom Bateman is opening The Flintlock at the former Castros, in Cheddleton.

A restaurant which promises to ‘bring a new dining experience to North Staffordshire’ opens tonight.

The Flintlock at Cheddleton – which sits on the banks of the Caldon Canal – had been due to open earlier this year only for those plans to be derailed by the coronavirus pandemic.

It had replaced the popular Castros restaurant which closed in mid-March.
