We stopped by for a wine / beer on our cycle day. Lovely spot with good selection of food and wine. Expensive, but very pleasant.

Dinner with wife and in-laws last night. Waiter was the high point, funny, fast and efficient. Food was nice, not amazing but good/very good and we were all happy and full just after a main. Nice tapas/share plates but good serious serves for the mains (I had ribs, struggled to finish them and I was starving - it was a... More

Comfort food with fresh air and comfortable outdoor seats. Had the chicken sandwich which came with the usual suspects, left feeling very satisfied.

We have gone to the Stables a couple of times after movie night at Dorothy Browns and were very happy with food and service. The setting is very cozy and on a cold evening it is nice to request a seat next to fire. I have had the Blue Cod both times and it is prepared very well.

We booked the day before not really knowing what to expect. The Irish young man was exceptional in his service. The food was delicious, the wine reasonably priced. The intimate stable setting made it complete. A great little find.

Here now and just enjoyed the best slow roasted lamb shoulder and a Belgium beer. Just the right amount as we are travelling to a tapas winery in awhile. Decor rustic and romantic. My partner had the veg soup and it was also fantastic. Cheers from Aus.

Had their "Lunch Pie" of the day (chilli beef) plus fries. Chilli beef served in a small bowl with pastry lid on top, and fries in another small bowl. Both nothing to write home about. Cofees very cold, despite asking for it to be hot. Not a memorable experience.

A beautiful but icy cold day in Arrowtown with fluffy snowfalls just like the postcards. Went looking for a warm and cosy place for lunch and the Stables definitely delivered. Friendly staff and a great menu. Recommend the table near the window if the snow is falling.
