Went here today for Sunday lunch,arrived around 4 ,I had been really looking forward to a traditional roast dinner. My daughter and I have been here on numerous occasions and ,to be fair,have enjoyed our dining experience. However,I was disappointed with my 'sunday roast' today. The lamb was nice,but a little fatty and stringy,the vegetables were soggy and looked like... More

This was a family vista. There was a family party locally and four of us needed somewhere to stay overnight. Unfortunately we couldn't get double rooms as they were all booked up so we booked 2 x twin rooms. There is no facility to book on line -something I think the owners may want to rectify - so emailed with... More

I have visited the Stamford for food and drinks a few times this year and it's always consistently good. The staff are attentive, the menu is good, the atmosphere is lovely and the food is beautiful. The bar can get very busy later on at weekends and it's advisable to book a table if eating.

A good choice on the menu and the staff were very willing to change chips and peas to potato and vegetables for me. One of the best steak and ale pies I have ever eaten!

Visited the Stamford Gate for dinner on what turned out to be an unexpectedly busy Wednesday evening for the team. A large party had arrived immediately before us, but the service was great and we were well looked after. We have always found the food to be good, but after not visiting for a while, this time the food was... More

A soggy sunday night in June. Not too many people in the bar so not very atmospheric. Adequate friendly service but nothing special. Fairly average pub grub at a reasonable price. Probably a nice view from the patio in nice weather.

We regularly go to the Stamford gate for Sunday lunch. We are always greated with warmth by the staff and especially Matt. The food is wonderful. Tasty and beautifully presented. But the best thing for me is the gluten free options. The menu is extensive and the staff are very knowledgeable and the chef prepares gluten free fresh along side... More

Decided to go here on a Friday evening for tea. Heard some good things and couldn't fault it at all. Great food, reasonable pricing and great service. Thanks and in the words of Arnie, 'I'll be back'.

My husband and I called here at Saturday tea time around 5pm and we were really lucky to get a table. So booking is advisable. The pub has a modern interior but has retained some of it's original features and has a lovely bar area as well as a large conservatory overlooking the River Dee. I opted for the Vegetable... More
