After literally just returning home from Stables View I had to create a Trip Advisor account purely to praise this restaurant. The food was gorgeous with just the right size portions. But what truly made this restaurant worthy of 5 stars was the customer service, especially from Declan. Stables View go above and beyond to make your night special from... More

Me and my boyfriend booked a table at around peak time on a saturday for the restaurant and once we arrived we was greeted by Declan the owner, who kindly escorted us to the waiting area where a lovely and bubbly waitress took our drinks order. Declan informed us on changes to the menu which was very professional of him;... More

My friend had her 60th birthday party here. We were a group of 18 and all of our meals arrived together. The food was lovely and the staff were very attentive. An excellent night out.

A truly incredible dining experience. Went with my girlfriend and friends,everything on the menu sounded delicious so we each ordered different to see if the chef's actions matched his words. Stunning,beat all expectations. The only shame was I couldn't eat more cheese cake after such a hearty meal. Well worth a visit!
