After a long walk what better way to relax than a country pub and a Sunday roast? The service was friendly and attentive. The food was fresh and tasty and the portion sizes were huge. We will definitely be back.

Description
Under new ownership and management since November 2013, The Stanhope Arms is a family run, dog friendly, village pub and Kitchen in the lovely village of Brasted. We often say that we are Pub which also offers food rather than a Restaurant which also offers Beer and our emphasis in the Kitchen is on providing home prepared, home cooked, good value dining. As a result, and because we prepare and cook everything on the premises, we can cater for most dietary requirements with a little bit of notice (please telephone us to discuss your requirements)! In addition, we can also offer special 'Bespoke' menus for larger groups and can assist with events such as Christenings, Wedding Receptions, Wakes, Birthday Parties, Anniversary Celebrations, Company Parties, Christmas Parties and Family Gatherings/Reunions etc. Our Bar is well stocked and well kept, offering 2 'Regular' Ales and 4 'Guest' Ales in addition to 4 Draft Lagers and 2 Draft Ciders. We also offer a comprehensive Wine Menu and a Gin Menu in addition to our 'Gin of the Month', as well as a good range of other alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages. We hold regular Live Music, Craft Fayres, Quiz Nights and other events: please see our website or our FaceBook page, 'The Stanhope Arms at Brasted' for more details. We look forward to welcoming you to The Stanhope Arms........
