We are regulars at this pub and love the menu and the food. A little unsure though if I want to return after seeing their recent hygiene rating as a 1! On our last visit in Feb I noticed a really nasty smell as soon as we walked in, a kind of blocked drain smell. We had a drink in... More

After yesterday's visit enough is enough, we have been going to The Stanley Arms on & off for years mainly because the food is good, however the inexperienced young school girls they have working there on Sunday's is bad enough to put up with, but the real off putter is the bad mannered management !!

Was booked in for 5 o'clock tonight, finally got seated at our dirty table at 5.35 after witnessing staff members being disrespectful with each other at the bar. On the phone we were told there was a specials menu yet the waitress said they don't do specials on a Sunday. Waited ages to try and catch somebody's attention to buy... More

Food good. Waitress manners appalling. Very sharp with everyone. I mentioned it to her but she did not change, still snapping at people, no smile. No paper menu to peruse, diners had to stand at a wallboard to see what was on offer. Restaurant was very busy by the time we had finished our meal, it was like bedlam. I... More

A group of 9 booked for lunch and all were happy with their food. Interesting atmosphere in the dining room, sort of farmhouse kitchen feel. Very friendly and professional service. Portions were very large, price reasonable. Will return to check out the Sunday roast.

Awful service, rude staff, glasses, cutlery, plates all odd sizes, shapes, and debatable cleanliness. The food was cold, dried up vegetables and meat. Don't bother. Awful.
