Also fantastic value, two of us had 3 lovely courses plus 4 pints of larger for £45, the duck was spectacular the steak was not huge but lovely. All meals served with side dishes of mash,... More

On entry we received a very warm welcome. After a very short wait we received drinks and menus. We were struck by how reasonable the prices were, and, because we think it is important to support local producers, were impressed by the fact that food was sourced locally. The service was excellent. As well as the manager there were a... More

25 members of our family went to the Stables Restaurant for my daughters 21st birthday on saturday. The service, meal and atmosphere was superb. Every single member of our party had an excellent evening thanks to Declan and the team at the Stables

Have attended 3/4 times now for family meals. Firstly a great welcome by the male waiter who can't do enough for you. The food is all locally sourced and is cooked to perfection. I have had the lamb, beef, and duck. 3 courses and a few pints for under or around £20. The best place around I would say without... More

The Stables View may not look like much on the outside and may look a little dated on the inside, but don't let that put you off coming here - the food is awesome. We were here as part of a 60th birthday celebration and the host at the Stables View could not have done any more. The service throughout... More

Having been falsely informed by my husband that we were having a 'quiet meal' to celebrate by 40th birthday I was pleasantly surprised that a family meal had been arranged. We were given the back room for our own use for the evening which was very private. The tables had been decorated, along with a lovely log fire in the... More
