This pub is a four stars plus establishment. The food was good and served hot; I had, after soup, liver, bacon and onions (a long time since I had seen this on a menu) which was excellent. The staff were first class and attentive throughout. I visited this pub about two years ago and was pleased to... read more

Oh dear, I so wanted it to be good - and it wasn't! We have been customers of the Stanley for many years, and it use to be so, so good, the pies were raved about locally with the meat sourced locally. New owners, and we ate here hoping it would improve, the decor and welcome did improve, but gradually... More

I have visited The Stanley Arms numerous times in the last 2/3 years and I must say I am never ever disappointed. The food is consistently yummy whether it is a simple cheese sandwich with delicious home made chips, a tasty cajun chicken or a gorgeous chicken curry at their new year party, the food never disappoints! The staff are... More

We stopped here twice on our canal journey as we were so impressed with the food and the lovely welcome. There were 10 of us eating so we sampled a lot of the menu!

I don't know what has happened here, whether the pub has changed hands or got a new chef, but our experience was not good. The lasagne was dry and didn't taste if anything, the gravy was like a blob of jelly, the pastry of the pie my friend ordered looked awful and they forgot to bring my side portion of... More

We went here the other night as it's local and we were looking forward to a nice meal and a drink. My boyfriend ordered the "Aberdeen Angus" burger which sounded like it was going to be a big, plump, juicy burger with hand cut chips. I ordered the fore rib of beef with a rich red ale gravy, I think... More

Excellent atmosphere and service, staff were really attentive and nothing was too much trouble. Food and drinks were great, lovely decor throughout and views of the canal, overall this pub is really on point. Well worth a visit.
