Haven’t been to the Stanborough for ages and as we had always had good food and service there in the past and, as we were shopping in WGC, decided to book for Sunday lunch. We requested a table away from large groups and families and to their credit the Stanborough does offer an area catering for such requirements and provided... More

We had booked weeks in advance for a party of fourteen. Upon arrival, we were told there would be a fifteen minute wait for our table as the people before us were still eating. Half an hour later we were still waiting! The manager made no attempt to keep us updated with the status of our table and we had... More

Average beeffeater gastro pub. Here at least their is 2 different area's, bar and restaurant. You can pop in for a drink only and not made to feel out of place. Both coffee, soft drinks are served as well alcoholic. Food nothing to write home about, but usual farye. Booking advisable but not essential.

I do believe the names of the staff were Alicia and Mason? They were both brilliant! Alicia... More

Not a great atmosphere, fairly empty and skeleton staff. We thought about going elsewhere but the weather was awful and we decided to stay. Our waitress was polite and the starters were good and arrived promptly. Our main courses were so disappointing though! I wanted to send mine back but the lack of staff led me to finish the fries...
