Description: The Stansfield Arms dates back to 1543 and is a beautiful beamed historical pub. There are lots of different areas with varying ceiling heights, nook and crannies and not a straight line! It is Family run, our crown and glory.We serve good homemade food all day, every day and have real ales as well as a good wine list.Set in the idyllic Apperley Bridge area, near the River Aire and open countryside it is popular with walkers, cyclists, dog owners all year round. Perfect in the summer on our very large south facing patio area and cosy in the winter by our open fires.We have a large car park.We are famous for our award winning early bird, £12.95 For two courses off the main menu and our Sunday lunches that starts from £9.95.

“Consistent Food Quality”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

I use the Stansfield for business lunches and our staff Christmas party. The reason is simple
It is not fine dining but good consistent quality and value for what you get. The bar serves good beers and has a good atmosphere. Suitable for families.

“Not left dissapointed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014 via mobile

Visited on a Friday night straight from work with colleagues. Early bird menu very reasonably priced at £12 for 2 courses. Food presentation was great and cooked to a very good standard . Staff were very attentive and friendly. Would certainly recommend on quality, service and location.

“Good Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

We recently went here in a family group of 6.

The menu is a variety of classic British dishes with one or two more "adventurous things"

There is a good atmosphere in the place and it gets busy at peak periods, so it's a good ides to book.

Service was great and the staff were friendly. Very happy to tip them.

Also seems quite family friendly.

I had a Steak, which was fine. Everyone in the group enjoyed their meal and considering the bill was £120+ for 6 of us, I think it was great value. Try the Onion Rings as a side and Tempura Squid as a starter - delicious.

I don't want to criticize the place, but one improvement would be to make the side veg dish a little more interesting, as it was just boiled veg. Maybe add some olive oil, salt, ground pepper etc ? or provide roast veg - The veg side dish was quite bland I'm afraid.

Wouldn't stop me going back though and I'd still recommend the place.

“Valentine's Day Treat and what a treat it was!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014

We were there for the valentine's day special of a 4 course meal for two. It was fabulous! The food was delicious, the service attentive and the pub warm and inviting. I also loved the open fire and comfy armchairs by the bar. We will definitely be returning soon.

“Great Sunday roast ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

Went here today as was in the area. I found this place on trip adviser, I rang up and booked and turned up approximately ten minutes later to a great welcome.
Both had a starter and then a Sunday roast, one chicken one beef.
Great portions ( as some places a bit skimpy on portions but not here!)
I asked for extra gravy, this wasn't a problem and was promptly brought over.
Managed to fit in sweet of the day (apple and toffee cheesecake) which was very nice.
Partner had the cheese board.
Overall thought it was great value and great service.
If you want a great Sunday roast this is the place to go!
