On visiting some friends in Bridport they took us to the Stable at the rear of the Bull Hotel, having eaten here a couple of times before they felt the food was good, but given that it was a Monday evening they were aware that the Stable was open for business, whereas many other local eating establishments weren't. We had... More

We visited on mid week evening. It was quite busy and the ordering of food and drinks was a bit slow. The food arrived fairly quickly though and the order was correct and food hot. Staff were quite attentive and brought us tap water and glasses when asked. Nice atmosphere but got very noisy so we left.

This is well worth a visit and in rather an unusual environment with two rows of three large tables so you sit next to total strangers but don't let this put you off there is a very friendly environment. The food is excellent (pies, and pizzas) and reasonable priced with so many ciders to choose from. There is an outdoor... More

The Stable is tucked away at the back of the Bull hotel. The pizzas are always tasty and there are many original choices. Quite pricey though.

Lovely building, great pizza with high quality ingredient toppings. Long bench tables so good for bigger parties if not too busy (there were 8 of us).

Visited on Tuesday and took advantage of the £10 offer - pizza, salad and drink. Plenty of choice, friendly staff and not too busy as went early. Glasses were filthy but they changed the drinks no problem. Will return.

Love the Stable, delicious pizzas plus a range of other dishes. Good range of drinks available too. Great atmosphere and friendly, efficient staff and good service. The pizzas are really amazing. Highly recommended.

We ordered take-away pizzas, which were very good. Would have given 5 stars but although service was friendly, it was a little chaotic with one girl trying to do all food orders and run the bar.

Great place to visit back then.... SO different now! Oh my goodness the toppings have diminished massively! Chose what I loved then... Lamb and sweet potato pizza .... could not recognise the topping now .... really mean and so not worth the £12.50 for a pizza. Worst was..... they did not have enough dough to make the dessert Nutella pizza... More

Description
This is where it all began! Our first Stable restaurant, located at the back of The Bull Hotel in deepest Dorset. The story began in 2006 when Richard and Nikki took on the mammoth challenge of transforming a former 16th century coaching inn into a thriving boutique hotel. During The Hotel's revival they discovered the beautiful old stable block, which looked so far beyond repair they left it vacant for years. When Richard's brother Andy returned from his travels they came up with the idea to turn the space into a cider house, serving gourmet Dorset pizzas unlike anything else. In 2009, after a whole lot of hard graft, The Stable was born. It was a huge success and remains incredibly popular amongst locals and holidaymakers.
