For a small establishment it has a substantial menu, service is quick and all the food was delicious. Main meal comes with a good range of side dishes, all in the price. The manager and staff could not be more... More

Came here with friends and family for a family birthday meal. The owner was a fantastic host. Service was good and the food was really tasty, and was good to know it was locally/responsibly sourced. Nice evening had by all. Would come back and recommend.

The staff at the stables view treat you exceptionally well. The food is of very high quality and all locally sourced. The portion sizes are good and the deserts are to die for. I will definitely be returning.
