Welcome to the

Stanley Gate


In the charming village of Bickerstaffe, in the heart of the West Lancashire countryside, is the Stanley Gate country pub. Standing at the crossroads next to the site of the seventeenth century stocks, the cosy pub building boasts views over the to the local church, windmill and, on a clear day, beyond to Liverpool and the Welsh hills. An ideal location for a meal after a rural walk or potter around the market town of Ormskirk just three miles away, where markets are still held on Thursdays and Saturdays. The Stanley Gate is also around half an hour from both the bustling city of Liverpool, and the local beaches - National Trust Formby Beach and Crosby Beach are both within 16 miles. At the Stanley Gate, visitors are welcome to unwind and take in the scenery over a delicious drink from the expertly curated range, or enjoy one of the head chef’s weekly specials. The rural setting offers a great opportunity to explore local walking paths before warming up in front of the log burner through the winter months.
