We ate here early on a Friday evening prior to visiting Kynren. The place was very busy, and when I ordered the food I was told there would be at least a 45 minute wait. Fair enough - better to be up front about it....More

Pre theatre meals, pleasant evening although a bit on the loud side, order food at the bar. Food was delivered to our table, piping hot and as described in the Menu. Toilets although upstairs were clean and well maintained.

The last time I dined in the StanleybJefferson, I was less than impressed. The tables were still piled with the remains left by previous diners, and there seemed to be no interest in making room for new arrivals! I had not ventured in since, but...More

The Stanley Jefferson Wetherspoon Pub - Named after Stanley Jefferson aka the famous Stan Laurel who lived in the area. Friendly pub, real ales and great food served from 8am to 11pm. Our food menu has a wide range from pub classics, curries, pasta, fish dishes, and a wide vegetarian range. All our food has a 5 star food hygiene rating, and just ask at the bar for an allergen and nutrients guide. There's a beer garden at the rear with seating at the front too during the summer. There's free short stay parking at the front, and a long stay car park at the back of the pub. We have gold award toilets on the upper floor and easy access toilet on the ground floor, with wheelchair access throughout the pub.
