Rex Rattus left this review about The Lord Stanley

There’s no real ale here, and no sign of food when I was in on Monday lunchtime. The old West Ham colour scheme on the exterior has been replaced by a more neutral light grey. The landlady told me that they don’t get so many football supporters now that West Ham has moved from Upton Park, so I guess the claret amd blue paintwork is now less important.

There’s what’s now a central horseshoe servery, that effectively divides the two rooms. Access between the two rooms is at the rear of the pub, behind the bar counter, where the counter has now been truncated to provide a small passageway. The room on the left is essentially a sports room, having three pool tables, a dartboard, and no seating to speak of. It also contains one of those large punching game machines; I’ve never seen one used, and I don’t think I’m mssing much. On the plus side, it does have a bit of nice old tiling in the splash area surrounding the counter.

The other room is a bit more upmarket, being carpeted and furnished with loads of normal tables and chairs. It does have another dartboard though. There’s also a stage at the back, with live music apparently a big draw at the weekends, when it stays open until 2.00 AM on Friday and Saturday nights. As you might expect, there’s loads of West Ham memorabilia around the place, including framed photographs and signed football shirts.

I guess it’s popular with locals, and of that I’m very glad, but it’s not somewhere I’m likely to revisit.
