“Good quality pub grub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012 via mobile

Just tried this place for the first time last week and it was great. Two courses for two people, two glasses of wine and a coke for £30! Portions are great and it just simple pub food. House wine is not up to much but thats no big issue. Definitely a good place for a mid week tea.

“Quality Food Good Prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

I Can say our family are regulars we eat there at least once a week, The Stables almost has it all for a relaxed dinning experience, nice atmosphere, very friendly & helpful staff and there is enough variety on the very competitively priced menu to give you a good choice of meals, they also have a 2 meals for £13 menu and a pensioners special tea time menu.

The food here should not really be called pub grub as it is a big step up from your avarage pub food, if you ask for a steak cooked medium rare that is what you will get it never ceases to amaze me the number of eating establishments that cannot cook a steak properly, the Steak pie is excellent with a very rich gravy and the Vietnamese chilli chicken is nice and spicy I could go on but you get the idea.

The Stables is off the main road so its not filled with passing trade customers come by word of mouth and returning business and you don't get that by serving poor food. They have quiz nights and live entertainment on a regular basis.

There is a small outside play area for kids and a proper Bar at the rear of the building, the car park is smallish but we have always manage to get parked and there is parking available close by as well. The only real down side is there is no view

I would and have recomended the Stables as a place to go for a meal out

“Excellant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012 via mobile

Went for a family meal and it was excellent. Food was delicious, excellent waiting staff and great value, big portions served all freshly made ESP the veg. It was 3 courses for £12. Only down side is I wish they done this offer on a Sunday.

“Had a great meal would highly recommend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012 via mobile

My family and I had a lovely meal at the carriages for my nephews first birthday. The choice of food was excellent and alot to chose from. Everyone at the table really enjoyed there meal and you get quite big portions. The children's menu was one of choicest menu's I have came across. The staff were lovely, patient and attentive without being obtrusive. I was impressed!!!. The place was quite busy so it must be popular. They have a play area for children and a beer garden. I will defo be returning for a meal and would recommend this place to anyone. They do an extensive meal deal which was really good value or you could order from the main menu. Staff also offered to cut my nephews birthday cake which was a nice gesture. Than you for a lovely time.

“Good food at reasonable prices.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

The Larbert/Stenhousemuir area is sadly lacking in places to eat out. We hadn't been to the Stables for years but heard several friends talking about it so decided to give it a try. They have an extensive menu and it's very reasonably priced. Sometimes you don't want a gourmet (pricey) dinner, just good old-fashioned pub grub. This place fills the gap. Will definately be using it from now on.
