This place is becoming our company local for team meals - the pub food is truly fantastic as well as the atmosphere, and I can honestly say you won't be disappointed. I'm hoping to return with 20 or so of us again this month!

We visited The Stanwick at Aldbrough St. John ot the end of May to celebrate a friends birthday. Once again the meal was superb and the staff were efficient and friendly. I had the Liver and Onions with Mash it was delicious. Will be back again soon.

We recently came to the Stanwick for an evening meal on a Friday night and had the lasagne and steak pie which were delicious! It was nice to notice that they had a specials board in the bar which offered unique choices such as a crab dish rather than the traditional options. The staff were very friendly and couldn't do...

Can't believe the review saying food was over cooked and staff unhappy. This is one of the best places to eat I have ever found. The staff are lovely and always take time to make sure you get what you want (my daughter doesn't do bones and they are happy to take pork belly off the bone for her). Regularly... More

This is the local of a friend of ours who said it wouldn't disappoint when we went for a meal for 8 of us, and he was right. Good selection of beers, friendly staff and great food at reasonable prices, especially if you go for the early bird menu. The starter was more like a main and the lamb shank... More

We visited here for Sunday lunch and were quite disappointed. Waiting staff appeared unhappy and the food was not as good as I hoped, the stuffing with the chicken was overcooked and the choice of veg was limited - no mash, just roast potatoes. I understood that the owners of the Stanwick Arms had previously managed/owned the Shoulder of Mutton... More

We were most disappointed to read your review. We have so many good comments and feedback especially for our Sunday lunch. The number of returning customers on a Sunday speaks volumes. In fact we had to introduce a second sitting of Sunday lunch to cater for the demand. Neil and I have been here at The Stanwick for nearly six... More

Husband had ordered pate followed by pork and leek sausages in Yorkshire pudding. Plates were cleared. I ordered kidneys, which sadly were unavailable, so opted for black pudding topped with poached egg, followed by the trout special. Everything cooked to perfection, and served with fresh vegetables. Didn't have room for dessert. The only negative comment I would make is that... More

We have been enjoying meals at the Stanwick for a number of years. Always a warm and friendly welcome from all the staff. An excellent choice of food and drink which we believe is top quality and that is why we keep going back for more.
