The Stanley is a two-room backstreet local and very much a favourite with the local CAMRA group. The main room stretches a fair way back, although much of the action is at and around the bar, which features 5 handpumps, with another couple facing the smaller back room. A blackboard lists the ales to avoid punters having to wander about just to identify the beer. During the winter period, you'll find Harvey's Old, as well as ales from Sussex and further afield. This includes Sharp's Doom Bar (the pub claims to have been the first in Sussex to stock it, so you may feel they have quite a bit to answer for).
Decor and furnishing is basic, although I did spot the oddity of elves in football kit above the bar. Not many of us in when I visited; I'm sure the atmosphere picks up a bit later on.
Whilst I didn't warm to the place as much as others have done, I can see the attraction and would be happy to return.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Stanley Arms
First-class corner pub hidden away in the backstreets north of Fishersgate station. Traditional two-bar layout, one narrow but elongated (housing the beer festival stillages) and the other smaller and 'L'-shaped (housing the piano, from which one collects a glass if buying a festival beer). Great atmosphere on a wet Sunday afternoon. Five handpumps in the main bar plus two in the other and up to 12 ales direct from the barrel (£3.00 to £3.30). Plenty of local CAMRA awards, and one can see why - well worth making quite a detour to visit.
