So Sad That It Is Now Closed

This must have had been the best Chinese in this part of the Dales. We've been coming back every summer for the last 4 or 5 years. Sadly, it appears that the business is now no longer in existence :( .Grapevine is that the owner has moved back to Newcastle.

The stable door is the best Chinese takeaway that I have ever had. The food is excellent and tony the owner is very pleasant. The orange chicken is superb and the crab and sweet corn soup is yummy. Will be using this takeaway on a regular basis.

In Middleham for a week and thought we try the Chinese. It's ok but I've had far better, but it's not the worst Chinese I've ever had either. Prawn crackers too greasy and tasted of oil, fried rice oddly brown. Spare ribs were great, but both our mains were a bit bland. Not sure I'd go again.

We stay in Middleham several times in the year and always make sure we have a takeaway from here everytime. The food is wonderful. The portions are excellent. I would recommend the Duck fried Rice

We all thought it was the best chinese takeaway we have ever had. We ordered, went to the pub for a pint and picked our food up at the pre-arranged time - very efficient service.

We have take away meals from the Stable Door each year when we come up to Middleham. The menu is varied, the quality of the food and the cooking is excellent. Highly recommended.

Visited the Stable Door whilst staying with friends in Middleham. Looks most unpromising from the outside but based on the reviews we ordered their set meal for four as a take away. There are some basic tables to eat in but most people were sat at them waiting for their take away. Once inside we were served by a smart... More

They call themselves a restaurant/take-away but openly admit they don't like doing restaurant meals!! The food was OK but not as special as the locals made out - maybe we are spoilt with our local one at home!
