“Sunday lunch cannot be beaten”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

Don't know if we should share this as wouldn't want to spoil our chance of getting best Sunday lunch in area, just like mother makes x we keep coming back time after time , our only complaint , wish it was bigger and we could spend longer to linger after lunch but so popular , people waiting for tables .

“Lively, Friendly local village pub !”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

All I can say is I would definitely recommend The Stainton Pub as their food and alcoholic beverages are of top notch quality ! The live bands that have been held here are first class especially The Skatoons have been popular here. Karaokies to die for. Formed close friendships with staff and regulars and always without fail make myself, family and friends welcome at your establishment. Keep up the good work !!!!! :-)

“friendly village pub”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

visited here to see a band, staff and locals were all very friendly, we didn't eat here as we were staying at a local hotel,but judging by what others were eating it all looked very nice, and looking at the menu it seemed fairly priced, the live band was great as it is a dying thing now to see live music in pubs, and becoming difficult to find venues that actually have this bonus.Will be returning thanks to the landlords hospitality, and probably have a meal next time too.

“Expensive to spend evening here!!”
Reviewed 25 May 2014 via mobile

Visited the Stainton many times & find Sunday carvery very tasty although as with previous comments made on trip advisor was also asked to vacate our table before we'd actually finished our drinks which I found very rude!! Teatime specials well worth money but if planning on spending full evening in the Stainton eating & drinking suggest you look into a second mortgage!! Very expensive for what you get!!
