My salmon andrawn Starter was so yummy ...... as... More

Recently celebrated a special birthday at the Stables and it did not disappoint. All the staff were amazing, friendly, helpful - could not fault the service at all.. The food was delicious - great menu choices, well presented and far too much to eat! The venue itself was lovely and just perfect for our special family/friends get together. Would definitely...

Large family party for Sunday lunch on July. Able to have our pre-dinner drinks served in the lovely garden. Children find it ideal in the garden and also in the little lounge area between courses to entertain themselves with tablets, colouring books etc. Great choice and great value for such an excellent meal, especially because you take your own drinks...

This was a repeat visit to the Stables and as usual, it definitely did not disappoint. We were greeted as we parked by friendly staff who guided us towards the "Snug". A lovely little sitting room with a double facing fire where we had drinks whilst we waited for the rest of our party to arrive. We were given some... More

I WOULD GIVE THIS PLACE A MISS. Look at my profile, I travel and eat in a lot of places and I give fair reviews ; praise when due and criticism when deserved. I was going to give a "Poor" but as they have totally ignored my letter and voicemail, they get a "Terrible". The Stables advertise themselves as "the... More

Have been here many times and each time I have been able to choose the choices for our menu in advance So this avoids disappointment as we know what our party members will and won't eat The lady who runs it is very helpful and extremely accommodating Terriic

This was the second time we went. The place was as lovely as before but this time we were slightly disappointed with the food. The choice wasn't as good as first time round where lots of lovely things were on the menu so people picked different things this time choice was abit strange so everybody picked the same thing only...

Where do I start. Excellent can not find anything to fault this place. What a little gem. Staff were extremely attentive, food was excellent the party included one person who had a wheat intolerance and there was only one dish out of ten that they couldn't eat, which makes a pleasant change.I like how you are shown to a lounge...

Not really asking a question, just venting as quite angry about the visit and and curious if The Stables ever respond to anything...

So the Steaks ran out on your visit. Steaks... Lucky you... We got Pie or Casserole - which was probably pie without crust.

I had read your comments on the regional food shortage and had asked if this could be prevented on our visit. To be honest, the food "choice" was poor and the quality was not much better, so grateful for small mercies.

Starters choice ran out before half the table has got theirs and the 4 at our end of the table had a choice of soup or a beetroot tart that was bright red due to the beetroot bleeding in to the pastry. Cheap Jus-Rol pastry with some beets sliced and then baked. Great. Worth £8 of anyones money eh.

Main course was a disaster. PIE... Cheap Pie as the casserole had run out. We did a quick count around the table and only 6 or so portions seemed to have been served and there was 12 of us. There was massive amounts of cheap steaming veg in bowls. OK if you are a vegetarian may be.

Dessert was the same scenario as the starter, our first 2 choices had ran out. One of our party ordered a cheese plate which came with no crackers, yet a slab of butter appeared. 20 minutes later, crackers arrived. May be they had gone out to get some.

Not sure if the main chef was out that night or if other reviewers are more easily satisfied but it was a poor evening and expensive to boot. £35 for Soup, Pie and my third of three choices for dessert.
