We have become recent lunch time weekly "regulars" working our way through the interesting and varied menu, always pleased with the result. Staff friendly and welcoming while still remaining professional. The new decor is clean, clear and attractive. Local people of Towcester, do not be put off by association with the former premises, Stables is nothing like the building's previous occupancy in any way. Good luck and every success to the new team.

We had Sunday lunch there yesterday, it was very good and we will be going back soon. The food was very good and the service was excellent. It is not everywhere you can get a Sunday roast at 2:30 in the afternoon.

Just back from a very relaxed 4 hour lunch with our friends, menu was varied, also good list of specials in addition to an already attractive menu. Food quality was very good indeed, proper home made dishes with fresh veg, Steak Pies, Casseroles , Fish Pie Salads mixed grills lots of choice. We had 2 courses, a round of drinks and coffees all worked out at £20 a head, felt like good value to us. Service was relaxed, friendly, not rushed but just right. Only think we could say could be better was the coffee was a bit average but as the rating denotes was excellent overall experience. great to see a Pub doing proper cooking rather than from the freezer to the fryer. Thanks great meal.

As I live not far away I watched with interest as the White Bear was refurbished and became the Stables. I was disappointed at the loss of yet another pub.
But today I actually went there and Wow! I was looking for somewhere reasonably local, reasonably priced, with a reasonably wide menu that delivered good food for my aged parents for Sunday lunch. The Stables came up tops on everything with friendly stff and good service as well. And for a bonus the beer was excellent as well - next time (there will definitely be a next time) I'll walk down and have more than one of the superbly kept Doombar!
Just one tiny minus - the children's portions were on the large size ! :)
