Not the worst place I've ever eaten but certainly a long way from the best. Visited late one night for a meal with the other half. The place was reasonably empty, about 4 tables eating this being about 8pm. The bar staff were friendly enough. Ordered loaded nachos as a starter. Squirty Nacho cheese rather than melted cheddar, tortilla chips... More

Great pub, nice location and the food never disappoints. Great selection on the menu and great deals too. I haven't had chance to try the mega cakes as the meals very generous. I will definitely be calling for cake and coffee soon

This pub is a family favourite. Plenty to choose from to suit everyone and good vegetarian choices too. It is always bustling so you may have to wait but it's worth it. If your not satisfied there is the no quibble guarantee. Our favourites are the steaks. Delicious.

Just been here with my wife. Although we were seated straight away we were told it would be 30 mins before our food arrived, as it was very busy. Our starter (corn dogs) arrived within 10 mins and was nice. There was a wait of about 40 mins for the main course, mixed grill for the missus and xxl burger... More

We've been to the Stanley Ferry many times now and I can honestly say we've never had a bad experience. The staff were very friendly and polite. We asked for some candles in one of the desserts as we were celebrating a birthday and this was no issue whatsoever. The food was great. Decent sized portions and cooked properly. The... More

Been several times with the family. Never had a bad meal always really nice. I know it's a chain restaurant but the food is always cooked well and very good value. The location by the canal is very nice too.
