A restaurant with heaps of character! Stanleys may have one of the best views of the Kariega River. Good solid menu and a bar filled with Characters

Try the steak and chips with a pint of beer . Homely sit on the terrace with a view over the winding Kariga River while vervet monkeys play in the trees

We had not been to Stanley's for about 4 years. It has improved greatly to the extent that it is now more a pukka restaurant as opposed to a house from which food is served! Lovely deck from which to view the Kariega River during your meal. Make sure to book and request a table outside. Food was really tasty and the service great. R777 for family of four. No alcohol. Main course and dessert.

We visit Stanley's every few years while staying in the area. The food is always great and the service is attentive without hovering. The line fish special was tasty and fresh, and the calamari and fillet were terrific. Call ahead to make a booking - can be totally booked - especially during the holidays.

If you are in the area of South Africa between East London and Port Elizabeth this is one restaurant you must visit. Named Stanleys, (Long story explained on the menu), but run by Rodney and his wife Dot. The pub overlooks the Kariega river with the must beautiful views, but its the welcome from Rodney and his staff that make the visit worth while. The food is good pub grub and the friendliness of the locals all add to the experience. HOWEVER Lester the bull terrier is the cabaret, Rodney places a piece of lemon(or lime) on his nose and at command Lester throws it in the air and chews it till only the skin is left!
Good food
Fantastic views
Friendly folk
And a lemon eating dog, what more do you need.
