The Stanley Arms Pub can be traced back to the 17th century.
It was built after a smaller 'ale house' called The Ring O'Bells was demolished to enlargen the graveyard at St Michaels Church. We are situated on what used to be the old main road to Preston hence being the site for Aughtons first Post Office. The Stanley's cellar also boasts a resident ghost which has been nicknamed 'ollie' after Oliver Cromwell.
The Stanley Arms Pub has been run by Steve & Sandra Williams and family since 1996. It is in a quintessential setting with a warm atmosphere and an old worldly feel for customers to relax and unwind.
On Sundays we run a two course menu with lots of choices alongside our well known home-made roast dinner, with a choice of freshley cooked joints of Beef, Lamb and Turkey served with seasonal vegetable and real roast potatoes and gravy, all prepared by our chefs Ian, Richard & Jack.
GRADE 5 We are very pround of our Grade 5 which we recieved in New Government Listings for Echo.
We held our first beer festival on 29/04/2011 serving 18 different cask ales and one organic cider, this day proved to be very successful, with over 200 people attending in lovely weather to the sound of The Blue Magnolia Jazz Band. We also ran an outside barbeque alongside our normal menu to give even greater choice for our customers. Please check this website for our next festival date.
