We booked The Stavely Arms online for February 14 (unfortunately Valentines Day). Three days before, 11 February, we received a phone call informing us that because it was Valentines Day we had to pre order from a menue that had been brought in especially for the evening. I asked if we could have the normal menu and was told a... More

We have driven past this lovely looking place on a number of occasions but this was our first visit ...... Beauty can be skin deep indeed . The two gents were friendly enough , the small selection of beer , large but empty ( apart from us ) bar and lack of atmosphere must make it a long day for... More

Average menu, average presentation,average place. Very disappointed in the food, and the bar area has no character. Sorry we will not be back.

We booked a family meal for 5 and received a warm welcome from the friendly staff. Unfortunately the choice of beer was limited and not at its best and several food and wine options on the menu were unavailable but we were not told until we had ordered them. The food we did have was fine and given the lovely... More

First time here since it's changed hands - nice country pub and dog friendly too. Carvery was good, but no starters on offer. No gripes, but left thinking it was OK, but nothing more than that.

We called in here for lunch, planning to eat from the tapas menu, however, we were told that on Wednesdays, only the carvery menu was available. Having said that, the lady said she would ask the chef if he could do some tapas and happily he said he could, that's good service. The tapas was absolutely fine and good value,... More

I live near this pub and often wonder why it is struggling so much - after all it looks nice enough from the outside, it is on a fairly busy road in a thriving village, good car parking etc. Went for a meal before Christmas and I could soon see why the car park is always pretty empty - a... More

We visited here and dined on the Friday evening. It's a pity the menu makes the place look nicer than it actually is. The food was just average, cutlery could do with a better scrub and a buff( stained). The Friday evening only had approx 10 people in so we thought we'd go back on the Saturday to see if... More
