A group of people who do dog training at Marbury Park made their annual Christmas pilgrimage to `The Tip`. A choice of dishes ordered in advance and the food was of the normal high quality. A very pleasant evening with friends and good value for money. If your reading this in the summer or when you are checking out places... More

Visited with a group of 18 for the Christmas Fayre Menu. Everyone was very happy, every course was perfect, colleagues are still raving about it! We had karaoke which was great fun! Altogether a brilliant evening, thanks to the lovely staff for making it so!

We visit the Stanley Arms for lunch in the middle of a walk along the nearby Trent and Mersey Canal about once every year and it is always a very pleasant experience. This year we found the staff very friendly and helpful as always, and there was a varied menu, with a good choice for vegetarians. There were nine of... More

Yorkshire puddings not cooked. Stuffing overcooked and bone dry. Roast potatoes look ed like they had been recooked, potatoes can only be... More

Excellent evening of food and fireworks. The landlord, his family and staff provided a brilliant evening's entertainment for all the families who attended. We have always found this venue to provide a good atmosphere and the landlord and his staff are always friendly.

Visited during our first narrowboat holiday. We found the staff to be friendly, service was prompt and efficient. The menu was varied (including children's choices) and the food was well presented and tasty. Would highly recommend to others.

Lovely pub right on the canal with nice gardens and seated area that looks onto the canal. Had 2 course meal for £9.95 and was just ok. Starter prawn cocktail was very nice and generous portion but steak and Guinness pie with chips and veg was fairly bland . Looked much better than it tasted. Was served quickly and waiter... More

We visited The Stanley Arms on Sunday afternoon, the atmosphere was brilliant, busy but run very well. The food was excellent and we were very well looked after by all of the staff. I'll definitely be visiting again soon!
