Have visited several times since the summer and always enjoyed and Sunday was even better. As well as the usual attentive friendly service both our daughters got their faces painted (free!) and were delighted! The food as always was fresh and beautifully cooked, my husband said one of the best steaks he's had and the combo of crab claws and... More

This was akin to entering a time warp...and if this is after a renovation, what was it like before? Dark, depressing, and luckily we had warm clothes on. The menu was also a time warp...and although the service was efficient, that is all one could say. We had the steaks, which were ok, cooked as requested, starters were poor, and... More

Reviewed this only two months ago but honestly it deserved another review from me. This time we ordered from the regular menu. I had the scampi and chips and hubby had the scampi with champ. Both totally delicious. Big portions of crispy scampi. Good skinny chips and very buttery champ. Really tasty!

The Stables looks as if it has had a recent make over, very smart and comfortable. We sat in the "conservatory" area which has great views of the sea. The menu is extensive and reasonably priced, as is the good wine. The food was good but not excellent, they seem to have difficulty cooking a steak as requested and it... More

Thank you for your review. We have indeed had a makeover earlier in the year, i'm glad you liked it! I'm sorry there was an issue with your steak, I hope this was brought to our attention and rectified on the day. We look forward to seeing you again :) More

Had a family birthday for x11 - food was lovely - especially the steak! Steak night on a Monday great value. Staff very attentive especially good with the 4 children. The conservatory is too cold in the evenings so better to eat in the main lounge. Overall an enjoyable meal - will be back!

I'm so glad you enjoyed your meal! Steak night is very popular! :) I appreciate your comments about the conservatory being cold, we do try to keep people in the main lounge on winter evenings but we will keep a closer eye on this issue. Thank You! More

Came here on date night with my partner. He ordered the lamb and I the trio of pork. Both dishes were amazing. Cooked to perfection and beautifully presented. Just melted in your mouth. We then got desserts which were just as good. Then to top it off the floor staff were very pleasant and friendly. This is the first time... More

We arrived at 6.30 for dinner at our booked table. The initial greeting was cold and matter of fact. Not a great start. Eventually we were shown to our table which was fine. Room enough for my daughter and grandson complete with toys. The meal was well presented and tasted excellent. The girl singing in the background added to the... More
