Delicious food, fabulous setting and attentive staff - what more could you want?!! I will be back post lockdown in December for more!
Outside was well done and felt safe. People furthest from heaters were a little cold but generally very well done. Food and chef excellent 😊
Stanleys is fantastic. We went to celebrate my dad's birthday in a group of 6 outside. They offered us blankets which was very kind. The atmosphere is fab and the food incredible. For a place that has been open only a few months with lockdown i was incredibly impressed with everything.
Would absolutely go back!
Excellent service and food. Slightly overpriced but lovely setting
Best outside dining in London! Delicious food and great service.
Stanley's are not serving a brunch menu anymore - but didn't inform me that before booking or after booking, despite still advertising it on their website. The waiter rolled his eyes multiple times during the short period we were there. It's a lovely setting and was really well set-up for the Covid restrictions but the menu is really disappointing and the staff not very friendly.
BEAUTIFUL PLACE, FOOD EXCELLENT, FOOD PRESENTATION, EXCELLENT SERVICE.
Friendly staff, clean location that felt safe and well distanced from other customers.
Most important factor was how delicious the food was, I strongly recommend to everyone to go eat there ASAP
Really nice venue, and the food was good, although the 'small' plates really were very small - it felt a little as though they were trying to make as much margin as possible by giving you as little as they could get away with.
The main courses looked good, but we would have loved to have seen another meat option.
Other than that, it was all good, and the staff were attentive and engaged.
We hope to be back soon, Covid permitting. Hoping that perhaps the small plates could be made a tiny bit bigger?
Lovely evening with my friend. The venue is amazing and the food excellent, I took the ribeye which was so tender and perfectly cook. Will come back for sure.
We were very disappointed that it wasn’t clear when we made the booking that food service stopped at the time we booked for. When we booked there were numerous time slots available with no indication that there would be no food service. It was impossible to order as the waiter kept saying they would come to us and didn’t, to the point we had to wave and vie for attention. We were also made to feel stupid when we were told we couldn’t order, as if we were in the wrong. Overall a very underwhelming and disappointing experience.
Loved the food & ambience. Venison doughnuts in particular were delicious. The white flowers decor was beautiful for autumn. Since it’s mainly an outdoors restaurant, it can get a little cold but they have good cover and overhead heaters and blankets. Probably adding a few more standing heaters may help make the place more cosy!
What a great place to meet friends outdoors. It’s warm, the environment is very comfortable and the food is just delightful. The small plates are smashing. Service is friendly and efficient. We will be back.
Fabulous new place divine food and service went twice in. A week xxx
We each had 2 starters & a pudding. Fantastic . So different & delicious.
Mu husband and I had a very nice lunch inside. I had the scallop special which was wonderful. Food and service were just fine. it was very quiet inside but I am sure that the garden was a bit noisier. All in all, great experience and we are looking forward to returning. Booking on weekends is a bit difficult as it popular with the outside seating.
Lovely spot in Chelsea. We needed a new venue and Stanley’s hit the mark. Outdoor covered space plus indoor. Fantastic food with great variety of sharing plates. Lovely staff and management. I wish them well. Have just booked again for dinner.
Really lovely staff. Great atmosphere.10/10 👍
Delicious food, great service. Unfortunately they allow smoking so ambience ruined by pungent cigar smoke.
Nice outdoor place but food isn’t great and expensive for what it is.
Poor menu (unless you like fish). No brunch menu available (we were seated at midday). Staff were very casual about wearing masks correctly. Wouldn’t go back.
I'm very sorry to hear about your experience at Stanley's, We have some fantastic fish suppliers and we love to highlight the quality of their products, but even so only 30% of our savoury dishes are fish or shellfish based. I apologise too that you were disappointed by the lack of brunch, but sadly we do not serve brunch in the winter anymore and we have a sterling lunch menu on offer. Please do contact me at email@example.com if you have any further comments. Kind regards, James.
Lovely outdoor terrace and delicious food. Great ambience
I found the atmosphere at Stanley’s to be very lively but the staff were struggling to control the young somewhat less than sober diners from wondering around mask less. It appears the new eating outside has just allowed smokers to chain smoke regardless the next table are dining.
In all, not a great experience. Too many young, loud, pleased to hear their own voices, disrespectful clientele. Didn’t really do Stanley’s any favours. Food was good but all tasted slightly smokey!!
Sorry, but I couldn’t recommend.
Great food and brilliant service plus heated outdoor dining - however staff need to sort their face masks to properly cover noses and mouths
Lovely surrounding but too close to rather noisy table not enough distances
Excellent and attentive service
Slightly disappointing crab on brown bun as rather dry and no dressing bun bit chewy
Delicious crispy prawns
I went for lunch with 3 girlfriends. We sat under the new canopy outside with the heaters and were extremely warm. The food was utterly divine and the service fantastic. We could not find fault with anything, and cannot wait to come again.
Really amazing, innovative food with excellent service.
Food fabulous; service excellent and very friendly; decor has been done beautifully and lends a great ambience.
Friendly staff, great food
It’s a lovely restaurant however we were very disappointed and dissatisfied with the fact that they only do a very small brunch menu for Sunday lunch . When I booked this restaurant via open table there wasn’t mentioned anywhere that we can only have brunch on Sunday, neither Stanley’s own website mentions this either.
In the end we only had some eggs and desserts, hugely unacceptable for Sunday lunch !!!
Amazing place and high quality food. I will come back definitely in near future. I strongly recommend this place to everyone who wants to enjoy in great atmosphere.
Fantastic place with delicious food and a great vibe
Very limited menu , 4 main courses with 2 of them salads! and not special or delicious salads at all.
Lovely ambience and great food. Waiters were extremely attentive and polite. Lovely to be able to sit outside in a courtyard in the colder months too!
Absolutely amazing food, staff and atmosphere. Best new restaurant in Chelsea.
Very relaxed and enjoyable
The staff are helpful, thoughtful and extremely polite. The food at Stanley’s is fabulous and well worth a visit. The outside are is large and extremely comfortable.
Great Food. Great service. We will be back.
Second visit & delicious food, well presented with charming service.
I would highly recommend, the food was outstanding! Have already rebooked to visit again in November 👌🏽
