Amazing tasty food! We had four small plates and shared between the two of us. The scallops and the smoked cod mousse were our favourites. Great attentive service and great decor. Will be definitely coming back.

The food is really quite average and overpriced. It also took a very long time to arrive once we had ordered.

Good white burgundy at a reasonable price, beautiful outdoor setting and friendly waiter service.

I will start with positive the food was delicious and the service was good. The only thing I didn’t like was the table we were seated, right at the entrance. Wouldn’t go for lunch date again, but quick lunch with the ladies would be ok

Despite being super busy the food was absolutely fantastic- especially the chicken taco starter and the whipped sheep’s yogurt desert (sounds random but was divine).

We had a lovely first post-lockdown lunch. Atmosphere and setting were fabulous. The menu was set and this made sense but it didn’t quite hit the spot for me - the food was nice but not fantastic. The wine, was delicious.

The food is outstanding. Deserves a Michelin ⭐️. Service, great, very friendly Italian guy. Spicy marg wasn’t spicy and we weren’t a fan of the chicken liver. Apart from that - zero complaints. The scallops were probably the best ive ever had. My local restaurant, and so happy it is!

Our whole experience at Stanley's was completely outstanding. From the moment we arrived the service was perfection and somebody was always nearby to cater for our every need. We tried lots of different dishes and could not have been more delighted with the quality of food. We would all like to return to Stanley's very soon.

Stanley’s seems to have gone downhill. I ordered the venison doughnut and it arrived absolutely cold and inedible. Had to send back and wait for ages for the replacement which was finally warmed. Food quality needs to be monitored better.

Appetisers are too overpriced - £11 for a sausage roll, really?

They should also invest in more standing heaters for outdoors- the overhead lamps are not warm enough for the current weather.
