We had read the reviews on tripadvisor and decided to go with friends we hadn't seen for a while.We were greeted and seated then ordered our food,The food was excellent and the service good,we were too full for a dessert so we just chatted over a drink.The men decided to have another drink,but we would prefer a coffee it was 10 past 10 when we tried to order a coffee and was told the kitchen is closed so no to coffee,it left a bad taste and makes us dubious if we would return.Such a shame after a lovely night and excellent food for the sake of someone going and making two cups of coffee.

We were attending a wedding in the area and found the Stainton within walking distance of our hotel. Upon arriving outside we were given a friendly welcome from locals outside which continued inside on this and our second visit. The staff very lovely, so welcoming and eager to fulfil your requirements. We had the early bird menu on both occasions which was £13.00 for three courses, and the portions were huge, great value for money. The food was freshly prepared and delicious. We booked to return on the Saturday night as did 12 other guests attending the wedding who also enjoyed their meal. It was beer festival week-end and although the place was packed on the Saturday night this did not deter from the service and quality. We would certainly make a point of returning if in the area again. Thank you staff of the Stainton.

We had steak, plenty of home cooked chips, mushrooms, onion rings and stilton sauce along with a side salad. It was gorgeous. We can highly recommend the food in The Stainton.

Took some friends for lunch on a Friday. Did book as when I phoned they said it could get busy on a Friday lunchtime, but it was almost empty. In fact it wasn't open when we arrived at 12pm as they couldn't find the door key! Food was hot and tasty, and good light sponge desserts eg spotted dick, sticky toffee pudding, with lots of custard.

Went with the other half and Mum Friday to check it out and we're rather pleased.... The service was great and the food was lovely... If you like garlic with your parmo Its not the greatest but isn't the worst I've had....

Hunters chicken and burgers are all great and the salad seemed very fresh

Will be back
