A small group of us booked a reservation and explained we had a baby. Although the restaurant is small, the manager booked us on a table for four, with plenty of space for the pushchair. We were greeted by the manager, with a hand shake. I have never been greeted into a restaurant this way before, and felt very appreciated... More

The menu isn't vast but the quality of the contents makes us return time & time again. I recommend Stables View to all - couples, families & friends. You're guaranteed a very warm... More

If this place was in the south east of England (or even Abergavenny!) there would be calls for it to be awarded a Michelin Star. The fact that it isn't should nevertheless not distract from its classiness. This is a welcome and rare oasis of fine food, drink and ambience in the Merthyr/Dowlais area, which is regrettably unblessed by such... More

Had a fabulous meal here for my wife's 40th birthday. Every dish ordered by the whole party was absolutely delicious. Staff are extremely attentive and helpful. They even brought out a cake for my wife complete with birthday candles. Really can't praise this amazing place highly enough. Will definitely be going back
