Well, the menu is not the biggest you can find but there is always something whether you are a vegetarian or a carnivore. THe service is quick and efficient. The interior may seem a bit simple stable type but the food is good nd you leve satisfied.

We had a late large group booking and couldn't exactly confirm numbers but the Stables accommodated us perfectly with sole use of their outdoor bar area and a good selection of platter and pizza options. Would definitely go again
