“Lovely food and service”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

The above says it all, first we tried some of the beers, which were great tasting and good value, then we had food which was lovely. Staff were friendly and attentive. We were very pleasantly surprised by the wines we tried to.

“Excellent food”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

We thought the food serviced at the stables was of a high standard and the service was very good. There was a great choice of beers.

“A Really Good Meal!”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

We enjoyed our meal, inclusive of the cost of our stay at the adjoining Beamish Hall Hotel, so much that we paid to go back the following night. The service was very good, the meals all hot and very appetising, and just the right sized portions. The presentation was interesting - the food was piled up in the centre of the plate in a way that I had not come across before, making a very interesting display and keeping the food below warm. The meal from the main menu was preferable to the one the following night which we had ordered from the Christmas menu, but both were good, and the variety was great.

“Not worth the hassle! ”
Reviewed December 27, 2013 via mobile

Went there today with family I hadn't seen over Christmas. We were really looking forward to it but after a long frustrating wait for our food we left feeling extremely disappointed and upset. It took 3 different people just to get a drinks order to us. After ordering our food the starters came out pretty quickly along with the kids' food. Our starter dishes were taken pretty quickly but that's where the real hassle began. The kids finished their food and then started to become a little bored. We asked a few times where our food was and the reply was that it was on the pass and we would be next. We weren't! We had to keep asking and pointed out that the children were getting bored so they offered a free ice cream (that took a while to come out!). I had to ask again where our food was and eventually it came out. Most of the good was ok but we had to send the risotto back because it wasn't cooked. We chose not to have a replacement. They told us they would take the drinks and the risotto meal off the bill. We did not leave a tip and left very disappointed. We won't be going back in a hurry.

“Disapponiting!”
Reviewed December 24, 2013 via mobile

We've been there for a Christmas dinner and were disappointed with the food.The starter & the dessert were fine,but the mainmeal was awfull.The "roasted" potatoes were uncooked as were all the vegetables. The only eatible things were the meat and the sausages. For that ammount of money we paid we did expected more quality.You can get better food in any pub and we won't come back.
