A couple of months ago, I would have had to give the Stanley 2 stars, as i'd arrive to find they had shut early, or had no food coz they had sent the chef home! 2 months later, customers have started returning, because they stay open, the menu's had an overhaul and to be recommended and their is a "buzz"...

Decided to call in on a Saturday night at 5 ish as we were passing. I am glad we did! This is the first time we have been since it changed hands and we were worried it wouldn't be as nice. But we needn't have worried as it is better!! I had the mixed grill which was big and it... More

Lovely lovely food But come on why oh why "spotted Richard". When it's spotted dick?? Ok waiters was lovely and had lovely manners. I will say the lady behind the bar where I guess could been the manager didn't speak to nice to the staff where as she could of seated us instead of shouting staff over. Lovely food

Having popped in a couple of times for a pint whilst being in the area, and always being impressed by the friendliness of the staff and the quality of the ale. We decided to drive over from Warrington for Sunday lunch. I just expected your standard pub food. What we actually got was exquisite. Truly delicous food of the highest... More

We visited The Stanley Arms this afternoon during our walk from Marbury Park to the Anderton Boat Lift. This was our second visit to this great establishment. As a party of eight we thought that dining (without booking) could have been a problem but the service was amazing and the food delicious. The choices of ales was good too. The... More

Just popped in for a coffee whilst walking along canal with friends. It was warm, clean, really nice and homely. Staff were so helpful and really friendly. Will definitely be coming back very soon for a meal, will be recommending to friends on this visit alone.

Came for a meal on Saturday, staff polite and friendly, it was warm and cozy, bit on the quiet side but this was to be expected due to weather and card machine being out of service which can't be helped. The bread and butter pudding is highly recommended

Living in the Area we were on walk and decided to pop in just for a pint before the journey home. They do cast ales which the other half was very pleased. He said it was the prefect pint and I just had a glass of wine looked at the menu and it looks very inviting and the food smelt... More

We've been twice now. First visit was a hot summers night. We were on a boat and moored up. The pub was rammed busy, but they found us a table for five, got us beautiful food and drink and did an amazing job. This was the second visit. Wet Friday afternoon, deserted pub. Food and service again faultless. Definitely recommend... More
