Overview

The Stanley Arms is a lovely, traditional pub in the heart of the city. We pride ourselves in serving excellent ales and beer, a great range of wines and spirits, and a fresh, home cooked pub menu that appeals to all shapes and sizes. Our upstairs function room boasts great views of the city and hosts diverse entertainment from our Northern Soul Saturdays, to Burlesque, Comedy and film nights and we have DJs and dancing in the main bar every Friday and Saturday night. With our outside area, games for kids, welcoming atmosphere and deep heritage, you’ll find it a welcome escape from the neon bustle of the city.

After a night in the Guild Hall we were welcomed by the bar manager who had a good selection of drinks. Prices were good and the atmosphere was nice. Would definitely go again.
