Now that’s enough about who we are and what we do, let’s talked about why we decided on the name “Stanley’s”. There was no question about it, being in Bruce and knowing who the suburb Bruce was named after, Stanley Melbourne Bruce our 8th Prime Minister of Australia from 1923 to 1929, it was an easy decision, from that point we were known as Stanley’s! Our 8th Prime Minister is not talked about much or given enough credit, he is rightfully deserved! We felt that calling the Local in Bruce, Stanley’s would encourage the general chit chat about this great man and realise that in some way or form, this man has made an impact on our lives as we know it today and should take our hat off to him. Next time your down at Stanley’s, be sure to ask the friendly bar staff about the great man himself and enjoy a frothy from the other great man, our 23rd Prime Minister Bob Hawke – See you at your Local!
