We had our first meal in The Stables and found it excellent. The meal was extremely good both in quantity and quality, we could not manage a dessert. The waitress did inform us when we ordered it would be a 25 minute wait to cook the food even though they seemed quiet, but I would rather eat good food not fast food. The menu had plenty of choice and we would happly come again to try something else.

We were pleasantly surprised by The Stables. The menu had a lots of choice including a good selection for kids. We didn't wait too long for lunch and when it arrived the portions were very generous - I couldn't finish my burger! The service could have been better though.

We waited over 45 minutes for our simple orders of wedges & fritatta, even though there was only 2 other tables with customers. The waitress/barmaid was very abrupt and unwelcoming. We should have left before the food finally arrived! It was apalling. The wedges were meant to have cheese and bacon added. Well, the cheese was just kind of plonked on top, and not even properly melted. The fritatta was the most miserly serving size I have ever seen, and the taste and texture was pure microwaved cardboard!! Disgusting. Won't be going back there again.

We had lunch there and it was average. Nothing great, nothing bad. Basic tavern menu and good beer. Fine for lunch.

The waitress didn’t smile, the food took almost an hour to get to the table, the kids stakes were overdone, the cream sauce, on my fish was separated and ended as an oily paddle on my mush potato.
for $96.20 we were very disappointed , we had a great day in Nelson sadly ended on a low note.
