    By a ticket using the train line check 1st class prices sometimes to 1st class singles are cheaper than a standard return then you get free wifi and snacks and drinks

    Stoke is nowhere near as rubbish as the people whining in tips about the station would have you believe. I promise there are worse stations & cities - I've visited a few of them!

    'Gourmet' Cafe on Platform 1 is genuinely not bad, for a railway station cafe.

    Scrap that. AVOID PUMPKIN CAFE. It doesn't acknowledge Bite Cards anymore.

    Freezing cold. Cafe is slow and pricey - go to Subway across the road for food. Area around the station is a dump, don't bother looking for any other way to pass the time.

    Gourmet Coffee on Platform 1 is a lot better than the dingy place near the entrance.

    Not many trains here. False advertising. Oh poo, holding the phone up to take a picture makes me look like a train spotter now....

    A single coach-cum-whole-train. This ain't a train. And it's bloody full. East Mids train fail.

    It's always amusing when newcomers use this station and have no idea how to get to Platform 2!

    For a cheaper cup of java than you get at the pumpkin cafe, go across the road to Subway.

    Buy a hot drink in the café and you can get a bacon roll for £1! Also, if the staff are checking tickets on platform 2, just hop in the lift to platform 1 and walk out of the café!

    The Ladies toilets are on one platform and the Gents on the other, via a subway. Very odd!

    On stoke city home match days, enter the station via the taxi rank to avoid the busy 'ticket barrier'

    If you've just arrived why not take a trip into Stoke Town (turn right outside station and right again under bridge) and visit SHOP (shop-stoke) for fun creative things!

    First Class lounge has free wi-fi. If you're travelling 2nd class you can probably get a connection by standing outside.
