Called for an early evening meal. Reception and service were OK (just) - but the food was disappointing. Had the duck which was average and served with mashed potato mixed with a very sweet apple sauce which was bizarre. It seemed everyone else was having large portions of burgers or steak and chips which seems to be their speciality. If... More

Want everyone to know that this was our first visit to The Stables having recently moved to Towcester. First impressions were good, staff were very friendly and welcoming, not in anyway pretentious. The menu offered something for all of us and when the food came was most enjoyable - tip for anyone who likes their veg soft/well cooked, let the... More

Picked because of the Tripadvisor reviews we were not disappointed good service and great Pub food and all done in a good environment. This refurbished pub was a shambles for years and now is unrecognisable. The Food amount and quality was top notch and faultless well done the chef and team. And by far the least expensive we have eaten... More

Hadn't visited before but were out visiting Stoke Bruerne and I'd looked on Trip Adviser earlier in the week for somewhere fairly close by to have a nice meal. Disappointingly the restaurant lacked a bit of atmosphere (only 3 tables with diners over a period of 1.5 hours but it was over lunchtime on a particularly hot Sunday, however some... More

Went here for a meal with some friends. As soon as we walked in we were greeted and even thought we hadn't booked a table we were seated promptly and served promptly. The food was amazing, if anything there was too much food but that is better than no food! We ended up having a pudding which was from a... More

Had a great night, tried the local beer which was very pleasent, the meal & service was very good. It combines the food area and local drinkers well. Once we had finished our meal and drinks time had reached 11pm ish, when we asked for a taxi we were told no chance as its F1 weekend....the landlord Brian asked which... More

My husband and I and our two children (who are 8 and 5 years old) eat at this restaurant fairly regularly and we always have a great experience. The staff are friendly, welcoming, attentive and knowledgable about the food they serve. The food is always of a consistent quality and quantity and they are always happy to adapt the menu... More

Encouraged by the reviews on here, we went to The Stables for a mid week dinner - the welcome was pleasant and service friendly - however a number of meals weren't available but we weren't told about this until we tried to order them, the wine I ordered was also unavailable, and meals were accompanied by what seemed to be...

We took my parents there last night for a meal. All the staff were very friendly and helpful and we weren't rushed as we have found in some places in the area. We all had something different to eat and thoroughly enjoyed each course. It was also reasonably priced. Definitely will visit again!
