Stanley's Bar & Grill
At the risk of sounding a little over the top, Stanley’s Bar and Grill is like a theatre of food where you have been given front row seats and a chance to meet the stars beforehand. Open kitchens allow you to watch a team who just love preparing your food, however this is not pretentious dining In Stanley’s bar and Grill service is about a smile, whether family dining at the big table or time out on the terrace with a table for one you get to choose. This is the life we have created at Stanley’s and we invite you to join us.

The food was absolutely stunning, beautiful fritter and Camembert to start, then two perfectly cooked steaks with lovely creamy sauces. The staff were excellent and if weren’t sure of an ingredient, checked with the chef, which I really appreciated. It was my husbands birthday and generous gift of the chocolate tart was an such a delight to receive.
The restaurant lay out was nice, could do with some green plants to round the surrounding off as well as the music being slightly louder.
We will be recommending the restaurant to everyone, a grisly lovely evening, thank you!
It was my boyfriends birthday and I’d asked if there’s anything they can do for him so they surprised us with a happy birthday board and cake which he loved, so thank you. Great service with a smile by the girl who I think could be Fern? That’s what was on our receipt she was lovely. The food was amazing! We will defiantly be returning in the future.
Beautiful surroundings, calm atmosphere, delicious afternoon tea.
Lovely afternoon tea with a glass of champaign. Sandwiches with good variety of fillings. Lovely light scones and cakes baked by the pastry chef . Also enjoyed a drink sat out on the terrace afterwards.
The staff were very attentive and the ambiance was lovely.
Price a little on the high side at 32 per her head but was a treat for us as we had a voucher as a gift. Due to pandemic voucher was honoured from 2020.
Good food and friendly service in spacious and comfortable surroundings. Just one problem- there was a group celebrating a family event with several screechy children totally un-disciplined. I would love to find a restaurant that excluded children in the evening.
We booked Afternoon Tea in Stanley’s Bar and Grill. Everything about the experience was positive. Great food, good service, beautiful restaurant and hotel. We would definitely recommend and will return next time we go to Liverpool!
Lovely iconic venue, interior decor is beautiful and the bar/restaurant feels really spacious and well set out. Really nice to be beside the water too. Shame you have to pay to park though, bit cheeky considering the prices!
Food was very good, unfortunately the service wasn’t great, lots of young waiting on staff who didn’t appear to have enough experience to remember the basics or etiquette for such a high class venue.
We had to ask staff three times for various items including one of our parties meals which was forgotten and arrived 10 mins after everyone else’s. Shame as it was a special birthday celebration.
For such a top class i was expecting more, but guess if you only pay minimum wage, you sometimes only get minimum standards.
Recommend the afternoon tea. I had Gluten free and vegetarian option and it was perfect.
A beautiful restaurant with a welcoming and relaxing feel to it. We ate afternoon tea and all of it was delicious. There was so many cakes we were offered a takeout box for what we couldn’t manage. I couldn’t recommend this restaurant highly enough. We will definitely be returning.
Beautiful afternoon tea, Staff nice but not very attentive, never came over to see if we wanted more tea etc we had to get their attention and ask.
Food and service were great. Only thing was I had an accident in the outside terrace before going to the restaurant. There was a fault on the metal chair I was sitting on which cut the back of my leg. Staff very helpful removed the the chair and the manager helped with basic first aid.
We booked a table at 5pm for 6 under the name Bernadette 25/07/21. I can’t remember the name of the wonderful lady who’s took our orders but she was amazing, friendly and extremely attentive. I would have no hesitation recommending your stunning hotel and restaurant. We all enjoyed our stay and look forward to future bookings.
Nice spacious restaurant. Lovely service from Vera. She was very friendly and made us feel most welcome.
Starters were warm Camembert with bread and garnish and hummus and olives, both very well presented and appetising. Value gor money about fight.
Mains were linguine with tiger prawns which were cooked in Pernod or of an aniseed flavour- excellent.
My main was a 10oz ribeye to be cooked ‘medium’ with three times cooked chips with a tomato and a mushroom. Disaster, the steak was totally rare through the middle to the outer edge. The chips looked and tasted like fat McCain oven chips of the powdery taste in the middle. I’ve had treble cooked chips before and these were not them. Totally ruined the meal. I got the obligatory two drinks knocked off the bill but that doesn’t remove the poor quality of my meal. Sorry, will not be going again. I left a customary tip gor Vera as she was lovely.
service attentive and timely.
food tasty. Salad a bit over flavoured.
expensive but a treat.
It was a nice setting, good food however the service was slow.
The service was amazing and extremely friendly. Food was amazing and the desserts on the afternoon tea were to die for. The scones tastes freshly baked and the all round presentation was lovely. (I am partial to a willow pattern tra set :) ) I would certainly visit again.
Very disappointing. They said they didn’t have any of my requests I had put on my booking. Staff were not very efficient not the service I have come to expect at all. We waited 15 mins to order a drink. Then we waited a long time to order food. The food came we had no cutlery. My friend was 82 and I said it was her birthday and we didn’t get a birthday brownie like we normally do. Very poor compared to before lockdown. We then went through to the rum bar and we didn’t get served staff walked past us but with no eye contact. I had to get up to ask for drinks and was told to sit down Ethel would be over. So we waited another age. Can’t say how disappointed we were.
Had a lovely afternoon tea for a friend's Birthday. Setting fabulous, sandwiches and cakes were nice, the cakes were a little to sickly sweet for my taste, very nice Prosecco. All the staff were friendly and helpful. A special thanks to Mia our waitress who was just so lovely, she is a gem.
Overall we all had a great time.
Amazing food, atompshere - gorgeous restaurant and setting.
Rushed from the moment we sat down. We received and ate our starters and main meal before we had even received our drinks - mental. Food was okay, but you could tell it had just been kept warm at the side of the kitchen. Selection of drinks was good, plenty to choose from. The girl who served us was pleasant but the waiting staff were so rude and abrupt. Me and my partner have been here three times now (we only come for the cocktails) and each time our experience has been the same. Rushed, rude staff, average food but great drinks. If you’re planning on going, don’t bother. Plenty of amazing restaurants in the area that you’d have a better experience going to.
All good food and service was perfect
And we were able to move outside
I had afternoon tea a few weeks ago with family and I feel that the portions have been reduced since my last visit. Also I was charged twice after advising staff member that I felt payment had gone through ....I now have two pending payments coming out of my account and no sign of the refund. Overall not really impressed to be honest.
Great meal .exceeded our expectations. Good value.
Great food beautifully served drinks. Good service. All round excellent afternoon m. Would recommend. Just a bit too late for Sunday lunch. So ordered al a carte. Delicious 😋
Great food and very good value for the quality of the Steak we had.
Disappointed ☹️ We arrived on time , waited at the desk for the person to finish whatever it was she was doing.We were then escorted to a table which wasn’t ready so had to stand around it whist a waitress quickly prepared it ! When we did sit down we then waited 15 minutes for someone to come over . The Traditional Afternoon Tea with Prosecco arrived . I have to say everything looked very sparse & small on the large cake stand . It certainly didn’t look £27 worth ! Although the cakes were small they were delicious, the sandwiches however were 4 tiny fingers which were nothing special and looked lost on the large cake stand !
The tea didn’t arrive. Eventually my cousin stood up and went to find someone to ask for tea. 15 minutes later it still hadn’t arrived and we had almost finished eating, again we asked for the tea and a different waitress apologised and brought it to us . ( no choice of tea , just tea ! )
Overall very disappointing!
Great afternoons tea would recommend and go back again
We had an amazing meal for our anniversary here , the food was gorgeous an the staff couldn’t of been more helpful . Will definitly be coming back
Great restaurant, good value for money and the service was excellent. Would appreciate a few more vegan/vegetarian options but otherwise fantastic.
Always a fantastic meal here. Service is fabulous and despite covid restrictions etc the service was still great. Good amazing and atmosphere wonderful.
Beautiful food and excellent service
Pleasantly surprised, delicious food. The cocktails were beautiful. There was live piano music and the setting is lovely. Will definitely go again. Great for special occasions.
Love this place
Great restaurant lovely atmosphere and great staff especially Dan the waiter *
We got this meal as part of the hotel deal, the food was good and a nice range of options. The service however was quite slow and staff were very moody and stand offish.
The food was amazing. The best steak I have had and the service was friendly and welcoming
Had a meal here twice now and both times it has been amazing! Really nice restaurant
Lovely, friendly staff. Nothing was too much trouble. Great atmosphere, definitely visit again.
Enjoyable afternoon tea with my mum for her 85th birthday. Strong smell of fish - which overpowered. Maybe look to put aroma candles on the table , which might sweeten the experience if the afternoon tea. Overall, I’d visit again and the cost is about right.
Afternoon tea for a friends birthday. Lovely place to spend an afternoon. Staff friendly and attentive. Will try lunch next time.
