OUR ROOTS

WE ARE ARE AN INDEPENDENT RESTAURANT COFOUNDED BY HELEN & MATTHEW STREETS IN JANUARY 2016.

Stanley’s started as a small humble operation with a 4 by 2-meter kitchen that was more like a cupboard, with only 6 tables. There were 3 of us to start with and we’ve since grown dramatically and we put our success down to taking pride in serving great food and coffee, with attentive service.

This ethos combined with our family style working relationships continues to drive us forward and we are looking to further expand due to ever increasing popularity.

WHO IS STANLEY?
