We were visiting the area for a weekend from Oxford and decided to try this place out for dinner. Extremely friendly place, waiter (who I presume was also the manager) took time to explain things on the menu, then when the thing I'd ordered had run out he just charged me that (considerably lower) price for the steak I ordered...

We decided to visit Stables View after hearing friends' recommendations and we were not disappointed! We went to celebrate my birthday. Declan was extremely polite and helpful. My husband thoroughly enjoyed the beer recommended by him. All of the food was cooked to perfection. I have to say that our experience was much more than 'going out for dinner'. We... More

We both had steak, both cooked... More

If you are visiting Merthyl Tydfil and want to avoid eating in the local retail park (which is where most of the local 'restaurants' are located), then take the trouble to find this place. We were given a very warm welcome by host Declan and then served the most extraordinary evening meal for less than £40 for 4!! Three of... More

Always a warm welcome here. In the past I have been ambitious enough to have a starter and have left here in real pain so went straight for a main this time. I had beef brisket in a diane sauce, it melted in the mouth, with triple cooked chips. The sauce was more a gravy than diane but it was... More

Had a lovely meal and the man that owned it offered fantastic service. The menu was limited however what we did have was cooked to perfection. If you go here definitely try the sausages they were really lovely. Definitely will be revisiting, if you are thinking on it do so!

We arrived for an early dinner and were greeted by Declan who was very welcoming. He explained the items on the menu. Delicious Lamb.
