Great food, great place

We booked a table for a meal before going to the Greyhound racing up the road. The booking process was very easy, but as we were eating at 4.30pm, we had the pick of most of the tables. What a lovely, laid back place this is. It looks like it was recently decorated, it is very stylish. Service... read more

Lucky dip off TripAdvisor as Towcester is between us and our friend - a guess that paid off. What a fantastic place! Relaxing sofa area for a drink before our meal, varied menu but not trying to be all things to all people, and beautifully cooked and presented meals. Well priced and excellent value for money. Seemed quite quiet (it... More

Love this pub/restaurant. They are so helpful. If you don't like exactly what is on the menu they try to adapt. I went in on Sunday and didn't fancy any of the puddings. I asked if they could do me a Yorkshire pudding with honey and they cooked it for me. Fantastic. The service is great and the choice of... More

A Friday night that was not busy, but just enough people there to give a bit of an atmosphere. A good selection of drinks on offer. There were three of us and there was a slight issue with the menus that we were given as one slightly differed from the others but the food that we ordered were available. Rib... More

Haven't been in here to eat in about 18 months as last time it was ok but nothing special. The kids wanted to try it and I'd heard it had recently changed hands so I thought I'd give it a second chance. We were greeted by a very pleasant member of staff at the bar, had a quick look at... More

Myself and two friends ate dinner here on a Thursday evening. My friend ordered pate but when it arrived the roll was too hard to eat ! It was soon exchanged for two slices of bread instead. The fish and chips also gammon can be recommended. The wine we chose at £13 a bottle was very enjoyable too.

After deciding to go out for an early evening meal with my partner we were turned away at the Saracens head and wandered down to the stables, the staff were fantastic, welcoming and couldn't do enough for us, we both really enjoyed our food and will be back, thanks for making us welcome you helped make our night.

After a bit of confusion and not being booked in at another local restaurant....The Stables welcomed all six of us with no notice i might add, on a busy Sunday and did it with open arms! (It was also my father inlaws birthday - i thank you with all my heart for rescuing the day) I can honestly say nothing... More

Arrived late on a Sunday for a quick meal. Food was very tasty, well presented with good service in a pleasant ambience. Will definitely visit again and highly recommend the triple cooked chips
