There’s good, classically inspired cooking here but, for me, the whole point of Stanley’s is the wine, from the outstanding range of sherry through the flights of, say, skin contact whites to the profound knowledge of sommelier Morgan. But it’s not just for oenophiles. The kind of food you don’t do at home and served in a rather cool if dim upstairs dining room.
