“Second visit”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

Had Sunday lunch there 28/4/13 this was our second visit, having vowed to return after a great meal earlier in the month one a saturday evening.
Both visits were well worth it, very friendly staff greet you and a very well kept cellar ensures your beer is in top condition, the meals are excelent value and delicious, i realy feel comfortable and love the ambience of the place.
I am spreading the word to friends and family because it is that good, i will never queue in a carvery again, can't wait to go back to try the steak pie.

“Our First Visit to 'The Stables'”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

With family visitors arriving from Sussex on Easter Sunday we booked to
have lunch at The Stables, having heard favourable reports from friends.

Following a very acceptable starter, most of us opted for the ‘Sunday Roast’,
choosing either the Turkey or the Beef, although both Pork and Lamb were also
available. An ample serving of beautifully cooked meat was accompanied by
a good variety of vegetables and thoroughly enjoyed by our entire party!

A choice from the wide selection of ‘Sweets’ rounded off what proved to be
one of the best ‘eating out’ experiences we have had for some time.

Although living locally, this was the first time we have been to The Stables and
we are already planning a return visit.

“Huge portions, great value for money”
Reviewed March 27, 2013 via mobile

Visited on a Wednesday evening with four friends. First impressions were good - the decor and ambience were nice and we got a warm welcome. The menu was appealing and varied with a good selection of specials to choose from but we decided to skip the starters and go straight to the main course. There was quite a wait while our meals were being prepared but the quality of the food when it arrived was worth it (would have been nice to have had some complementary bread or something to keep us occupied in the meantime though). Portions were generous to say the least - you'd need a good appetite to manage three courses! Everyone enjoyed their main (although I couldn't finish all mine) and we all had a different dessert and coffee. Overall, we were all impressed with the meal and the overall experience. Excellent value for money but the huge portions were a bit much. Would visit again, maybe for a Sunday lunch. Definitely the best place I've eaten in Towcester.
