My wife and I held our wedding meal here with our immediate family and were well looked after. We were given the private room at the side of the restaurant and were given time to decorate and prepare. Nice food and I would certainly recommend using the stoneybeck inn for a function or party meal.

We went to the New Years Eve party - we were a bit worried as per our earlier review, however service was really good and food excellent, the DJ got plenty of people up dancing and the whole atmosphere was perfect for a party night. The main difference was less customers and plenty of staff and the food was in... More

When we entered the main bar we were greeted very politely and served quickly and efficiently . I have to say I've been privileged enough to eat at some of... More

Went to Stoneybeck for the first time with friends and the meal was fantastic! The scallops were delicious and the steak burger was up there with the best burgers I've ever eaten. Really nice setting , just off the m6 too so really handy to get to, would recommend it to anyone!

The room was a great size, very comfortable bed, great shower room and a good size, appeared to newly decorated. A lovely outlook onto a field, very quiet considering not... More

We went to a 'party night' on Saturday in the main function room, there were several tables there from local businesses. The tables looked very nice and festive with crackers, party poppers and balloons etc. The service was poor at the bar we stood 40 minutes waiting to be served. The food was below average and served badly - we... More

I'm sorry your experience at Stoneybeck did not live up to your expectations - the party night you attended was very busy and unfortunately we were a senior chef down that evening due to illness which put our kitchen under greater pressure. It's a shame you chose not to come to New Year's Eve at Stoneybeck as I am confident... More
