A trip out to Stanley's last Friday was rewarded with a couple of decent pints of Brains' Rev. James. Pub has been awarded the Autumn Pub of the Season by Wirral CAMRA.

From Sir Thomas Street, where the Wirral buses leave Liverpool city centre, the 433 drops you off on the doorstep. There was a wide range of beers, ales and lagers to choose from and the gentleman behind the bar encouraged us to sample a couple of ales before ordering. Satisfied that the Wadsworth Red, White and Brew and the Theakston Lightfoot Bitter were just the ticket, we headed for a quiet corner by the darts area to read the papers and sup our pints which were duly replenished. After a civilized half hour we rose to make our way to the Tele around the corner.

When in New Brighton we always pop into The Stanleys Cask because it opens early and because the staff are always so pleasant, not to mention that they always have at least four cask ales and a couple of ciders on offer. This visit we opted for the rather rumly named Bishop's Finger which led to a little ribauldry. The Organ's Morgan also caused much jocularity. Both were excellent. The lady behind the bar allowed us tastes of Devil's Advocate (Caledonian) and Two Hoots (Holt), which convinced us to order a pint of each.

I found the beer in this excellent pub far from "bog" standard as the previous report claimed. How on earth can anyone criticise anything that they haven't personnally tried beggars the imagination. Anyway, I chose a pint of Dartmoor and my wife a pint of Red , White and Brew. I inadvertently mixed them up on my way to the table and I looked enviously at my wife's pint, which had a much firmer head. We finished and decided to have the same again. To my surprise and my wife's chagrin, this time I got the right pint with the fine head, the pint of Dartmoor. I hasten to add that the other pint was very good but luck sometimes means you get something special which goes perfectly with one's palate. We held a very pleasant conversation with the lady behind the bar and couldn't help noticing that the place had a very, very fine fire place for those that are interested in such things.

Single bar locals pub with a fairly bog standard selection of ales - Jennings Lakeland Stunner, Wells Bombardier, Adnams Bitter & Batemans XB. I didn't try any, as I was driving. But others in our party weren't over-impressed with the condition of the beers. We drank up swiftly and headed around the corner to the Telegraph.

Nice to revisit again as part of a small crawl of the area. Caladonia 2.8 (a 2.8% low alcohol brew), Youngers No.3, and Leeds Yorkshire Gold were imbibed. All were good, Licensee friendly, and a revisit very much on the cards. Best pub of the evening in this area.

Nice pleasant local (do not get this Stanley confused with a pub of a similar name not so far away) had four generally mainstream ales. Had a pint of Rucking Mole which wa snice enough. They were having their quiz on while I was there and they seemed to be a freindly genial crowd.

A friendly local, well run by a landlady who's doing her level best to sell interesting beers, despite being hamstrung by the drinker's curse (the pubco beer list!). The frequent live music evenings are very popular and seem to be of pretty good quality.

Very decent locals pub. More impressed with beer quality (Hydes seasonal) than on previous visit, and a cosy suburban feel.

Suburban locals' boozer not far from New Brighton.
It's opened out into a single large room, although one can picture how the pub was before this by studying the wooden/carpet floor, which gives a clear picture of a snug and games room at the front for those blessed with an imagination for such things. The bar back retains some interesting woodwork and mirrors, however.
A strong emphasis on sport with about 5 large screens situated in positions which mean its possible to see one everywhere. This doesn't bother me too much but it won't be to everyone's tastes.
John Smiths Cask, Moorhouses Pride of Pendle, St Austell Proper Job, Holt 1849 and Caledonian 80 Shilling made up an above-average beer range on my visit, although they're chiefly from the bigger brewers. St Austell was well kept.
Not a bad pub at all but probably not a must visit. If you want to catch a game though this is the pub to head to.

Cracking little pub with a small range of quality guest real ales. Friendly boss and what looks to be a fairly recent and sympathetic redecoration are additional positives. Worth going out of your way for.
