Called into the Stanley Arms after laying flowers to mark my dads passing. Dad had brought mum to the Stanley in their “courting days” so it was rather a poignant day. Menu was rather restricted, I appreciate we hadn’t booked, but the table we were...More

Former colleagues meet regularly here. Food is excellent although mostly we order sandwiches which are excellent. There is a separate restaurant where you can dine more fully. We tend to eat in the bar. Service always good and friendly. That's why we always go back.

Visited today as a family group of 12 to celebrate Mum & Dad’s Diamond Wedding Anniversary. Lovely food, service good and wasn’t rushed on a very busy Sunday afternoon. Good selection on menu to cater for varied tastes. Enjoyable time had by all!
