We (family of 4) were passing late on a rainy Sunday evening and called in to check whether they were still serving food. No problem they said. The fish and chips and steak and ale pie were lovely and great value. Good selection of beers too. Really homely place and good banter with the locals. We'll definitely go back when... More

Called on Saturday with my wife for some food. The hotel looked closed, but once inside, it was homely and nicely furnished. The food (steak and ale pie) was to die for. Priced at £9.95 seemed expensive, but it wasn't. The wife couldn't manage to finish hers, and I am ashamed to say that I was too full to help... More

Really good value; attentive staff; good plain fare with lots of variety specials that suit the regular lodgers working away from home. Personal touch from Landlord and Landlady makes a positive difference, can't be more helpful. Popular with professionals regularly staying when working at nearby Sellafield (5 mins drive; 20 mins walk)

We quite often go to the Stanley Arms for a meal as it's really good food at good prices. The menu is varied and fresh. It's certainly worth trying the homemade pies they make. Very tasty. Sundays roasts are always plentiful. Staff are very friendly every time. It's worth calling in advance to book a table just in case as... More

I had a meeting in Seascale and saw this hotel on TA, booking was very easy, I did tell the owners I may be checking in late, she told me the kitchen maybe closed, we made arrangements to have something put in the fridge, really nice of them to do this for me, After a horrendous 8.5 hour drive to...

We drove passed here several times while staying in the area and liked the look of it more than those in Gosforth which was closer. We didn't stay here but dropped in a couple of times as we liked it. The food was cooked really well and I can highly recommend the lamb and baked cheesecake. Lovely beer garden and... More

Called in for a quick pint. Had a fantastic pint of Wainwright Ale, well presented. lovely golden ale. The manager said it was their best cask and Thwaites biggest cask brand. Will call back for another when next passing through. A must re visit for the Christmas Ale coming soon.

We stayed here for two nights in August for a family wedding. We chose the hotel for convenience as it is within walking distance of both Church and reception venue. I know this area well, and so my expectations were quite realistic, or perhaps low! From the moment we arrived and checked in, the welcome, service and hospitality received from... More
