About Stanbury, Raleigh

Stanbury is a village in the Haworth, Cross Roads and Stanbury civil parish, and in the metropolitan borough of the City of Bradford in West Yorkshire, England. The village is situated approximately 1 mile (1.6 km) west from Haworth, 4 miles (6.4 km) miles south-west from Keighley, and 7 miles (11 km) miles east from Colne in Lancashire. Less than half a mile north-east is the hamlet of Lumbfoot. The name Stanbury translates as Stone Fort from Old English. The surrounding countryside is mainly moors and farmland. The village is close to the Brontë waterfall and Top Withens tourist landmarks. Emily Brontë is reputed to have used Top Withens as the model for the location of Wuthering Heights, and nearby Ponden Hall (half a mile from the edge of Stanbury) has been considered the model for 'Thrushcross Grange' in the same book. It has also been theorized that Ponden Hall is actually the setting for Top Withens as its size is smaller than that of Thrushcross Grange as described in the book. There are also additional theories that the hall is the model for Wildfell Hall in Anne Bronte's The Tenant of Wildfell Hall. Stanbury is Historically part of the West Riding of Yorkshire. The River Worth is immediately north of the village and Sladen Beck is just to the south. Ponden Reservoir was built in the 1870s and a reservoir was approved to be built at Lower Laithe on Sladen Beck in 1869, but it was not started until 1911. Due to the nation being involved in the First World War, the reservoir was not completed until 1925. Its completion necessitated the abandonment of the hamlet of Smith Bank. There is an Anglican church in Stanbury which was built in 1848. In 1998, it was named St Gabriels, after spending the previous 150 years without a name. The school caters for primary school age children. There are also two public houses: The Friendly and the Wuthering Heights which dates from 1763 and was formerly and locally known as 'The Cross'. The Old Silent Inn (formerly The Eagle) is a public house and guest house close to the village which is over 400 years old. Two paths pass through the village; The Bronte Way and The Pennine way.

  • Been there twice and can't wait for #3. It's pricey, but the food and service have been exceptional both times. Great, friendly staff makes you feel right at home and works to make your experience a good one. Food is fabulous...have sampled about 10 different items on the menu and all have been excellent. Wine list is solid and fairly priced (for a restaurant, anyway!). Go and enjoy!

  • If I could give this place 10 stars I would. Possibly best meal of my life. Service was incredible, Kerry is the greatest. Amazing, relaxed atmosphere. Don't live in or come to Raleigh without stopping by this place.

  • The dining experience here is top both. Small and large plates, everything is shareable. I was BLOWN away by the flavors conveyed in the plates they offered. Our server, Carrie was professional, friendly, and attentive.

  • I was having a drink at another restaurant and the bartender told me about this place. Curious, I got in my car and rushed over to check it out. What a great place! The menu is amazing, and was told it changes every week or so, seasonal. I really enjoy places like this, the staff was great, but the food was amazing. The bone marrow app was to say the least "something special". I now can't go there without getting that dish, melts in your mouth delicious. The Lamb Tartar was very good too, never had it before and was seasoned just right. The regular customers I met were very cool, I found a new spot to go to at least 2 to 3 times a month. Hats off to the chef, can't wait to try more.
