Found the Stanley Arms while looking for somewhere to stay for a visit to the Buxton Festival and it turned out to be quite a find. The room was well-presented and the breakfast nicely done. We had dinner too and the food was delicious. The staff were welcoming and helpful and the location is much nicer than being in town.... More

This is a food review (we didn't stay). What a find this place was! We had pate to start which really was the tastiest I've had in a long time. My partner had the Crispy Chicken main and I had the Lamb - both absolutely wonderful and very generous in size! The gentleman who served us was very nice also.... More

Lovely room, very nicely decorated and comfortable. Nice pub, food good for pub food. In a very beautiful part of the peak district. Be aware rooms are not well sound proofed inside or out and I don't think you'd avoid road noise or noise from other rooms in any of the rooms.

Just returned from a 3 day break, highly recommended for accomadation and food. Staff very helpful. Very close to Goyt valley, a stunning area of beauty and with many N.T. properties within reach. A great base for touring or walking.Will return many times.

We have visited the Stanley Arms a few times and we've always had an excellent meal. The lamb cutlets are amazing and nothing is too much trouble. Warm, cosy and a welcoming atmosphere every time. Highly recommended. Cannot wait to go back again soon.
