With city slicker appeal that attracts young professionals and stylish shoppers, Stanleys is a pub that’s moved with the times to keep its offer fresh and contemporary. It’s also a favourite with local residents, with good sports coverage and a function room that’s the perfect location for community parties as well as meetings. Stanleys should continue to attract sports fans, professionals, shoppers and tourists, as well as its regular locals trade.
Stanleys – also known as the Stanley Arms – has a exceptional street presence, with black and white detailing, leaded-style windows, and a wide frontage that gives it good visibility from all angles. Inside is a well-maintained interior with lovely decorative touches throughout. It’s an open plan trading pace with a large central bar, and there’s a fully operational kitchen, which would be perfect for a traditional food offering for 25 diners. The pub is also fitted with Wifi and Sky. There’s a spacious games area and function room, which would be a great setting for parties and other local community and business functions.
The domestic accommodation consists of three bedrooms, a kitchen and a lounge. Punch will ensure that this accommodation is in good order.
Stanleys is just a short distance from Chester’s busy train station, which means it has real scope to attract an enviable broad range of customers. However, there’s a definite ‘local’ feel to the pub – the tightly-packed terraces housing Hoole’s up-and-coming young professionals are just round the corner. Chester itself, with its medieval rows of shops, city walls, stunning cathedral and attractive river frontage, is just a few minutes’ walks away, and there are good transport links to Merseyside, Manchester and North Wales.
Stanleys is a lovely city pub with a great deal to offer an enterprising and energetic publican. You may have worked in a high-energy town centre venue before, and you’ll be keen to fit in quickly with the local community.
