My daughter and I were refused any hot food at the Anderton Boat Lift Café at 15:45 after driving from Sale to take her dog for a walk in the nature park and around nearby canal. We paid a spontaneous visit to the Stanley Arms and were politely greeted and directed to sit in the local's bar where the dog... More

We passed it on the way to Northwich and decided to try it, we only had a sandwich but it was lovely. The service was great and the specials board was really different. The lager was good and they pulled a great pint.

Coming again next week. Note chef: Fish needed to be fried for a few more minutes...good fish but sloppy in places...needs a more careful eye....getting so... More

Dog and child friendly. Great menu and food to match. Top landlord. Good service. Very close to the boat lift and would beta shame to miss it!

The Stanley Arms is in a beautiful setting along the canal, great beer garden that welcomes dogs, very friendly staff service and good choice of menu. The disappointment was the size of the meat served, pork belly was sent back as it was so small, more like a scratching, when we complained and asked for something else we received an... More

My self and my partner went in on a Saturday evening with the plan of having a few drinks sat in the ample size beer garden and outside terrace over looking the canal, thinking from the outside it look a very nice welcoming place and to scout the food menu for a meal on a later date. However after queuing... More

Was shut for a while. We had a late lunch and things seem to be going well for the new young manager. Hope it does well. Making arrangements to bring the walking group once more. Only 2 mins walking from Anderton Boat Lift.

Moored up our canal boat directly outside and had a lovely dinner and drinkies in the garden overlooking the canal. Great little pub to visit - especially in conjunction with a visit to the Anderton Lift opposite.

We were booked for the Anderton lift the following morning so decided on a quick drink inthe pub. They allow dogs in and so it was settled, we enjoyed a good pint and a mix grill to die for. The locals were friendly and we enjoyed an evening of good banter. We will return again.
