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
