What a lovely traditional place, we stopped while out for a drive for a Sunday dinner. The food was perfect, real home cooked and locally sourced produce. Service was very welcoming and fast. Felt in no rush to leave, stayed for a few hours sitting by the open fire. Great food for a great price. Views are lovely through the...

On a recommendation from our friends we booked a late Sunday lunch . With a lovely real fire in the lounge area we were treated to the best value homemade soup and roast pork dinner we have had for a long time. Our friends opted for the menu pies , which they confirmed were something very special. We will be...

We stayed in the Bottle Store for one night as an anniversary celebration. I was anxious as smaller venues are often unable or unwilling to cater to my dietary requirements (I am wheat and lactose intolerant) however the chef seemed eager to please, ensuring that I was fully informed, and even came out to check on us. The pub itself...

Revisited the "Stanley" after 17years! Amazed to see our hosts Adrian and Carolyn still running things. It still had the same warm welcome and charm it did when we last visited. Make the effort and travel a little way out of Macclesfield into "Macc forest" and you won't be disappointed. Excellent food and accommodation.

My wife and I were lucky enough to book a table at the Stanley Arms early evening on Christmas Eve. We were looking for a tasty meal after a hectic day at work and that's exactly what we got. Three courses were available but we only had room for two - roast peppers and a mushroom dish for starters; we...

We stayed there just for one night. Was made to feel welcome. It is a beautiful pub the food was great. The room was brilliant definitely 4 star. They have decorated the back room for christmas and it looks magical. The breakfast was very good quality cannot find any faults. We will definitely be returning.

Brilliant food, beer and service, nice decor and cosy open fires, astoundingly beautiful countryside and wonderful locals. Ideally located to incorporate a visit with a good walk in the great outdoors.

We tend to stop off here on our way home from visiting friends. We did so today, on a very cold, wet and dismal afternoon. The food was as good as ever, and fires in two rooms made the place a real oasis of warmth and light. We always look forward to eating here, and heartily recommend it.
