The menu lists the provenance of all the main courses, giving this friendly restaurant a truly local feel. Our meals were beautifully cooked and presented. The service from Declan and his team was attentive and prompt, the atmosphere unpretentious. Excellent value, will definitely come again.

I visited the restaurant for a staff meal and as I'm not from this area wasn't sure what to expect. The welcome was very friendly and when food was being served it was very prompt. I had a Xmas lunch so wasn't able to comment on other food that was available. The food was lovely and hot and well presented... More

The attention given to us all was superb, nothing was too much trouble. The meal was reasonably priced, and the food was excellent. Would definitely visit again, and recommend this restaurant to friends and... More

The welcome is friendly and relaxing as soon as you walk through the door. The food is comprised of a good, solid menu with plenty of choice. The food itself is really fresh, well cooked and served by prompt and attentive staff. There is a limited but appropriate wine list and the bar service is exemplary. All in all a... More

A surprise to find this place in Dowlais.The service was a tiny bit OTT but good. Lovely food and very reasonably priced. We were given a free bottle of wine when we said we were celebrating.......great customer relations! Will return for sure.

Another amazing night at The Stables. Booked at short notice, but again nothing is too much trouble for Declan. Nice Christmas deco and tree, food was outstanding yet again (girls loved the Turkey), will definitely be back. Thanks Declan
