Visited last Saturday for my 60th birthday. There was 14 in our party which was a perfect number for the venue. The food was first class and the setting is so different. Just perfect for a special occasion. Highly recommended.

i would imagine so we took a four year old and she really enjoyed it and shall be taking her again
Not really asking a question, just venting as quite angry about the visit and and curious if The Stables ever respond to anything... So the Steaks ran out on your visit. Steaks... Lucky you... We got Pie or Casserole - which was probably pie without crust. I had read your comments on the regional food shortage and had asked if this could be prevented on our visit. To be honest, the food "choice" was poor and the quality was not much better, so grateful for small mercies. Starters choice ran out before half the table has got theirs and the 4 at our end of the table had a choice of soup or a beetroot tart that was bright red due to the beetroot bleeding in to the pastry. Cheap Jus-Rol pastry with some beets sliced and then baked. Great. Worth £8 of anyones money eh. Main course was a disaster. PIE... Cheap Pie as the casserole had run out. We did a quick count around the table and only 6 or so portions seemed to have been served and there was 12 of us. There was massive amounts of cheap steaming veg in bowls. OK if you are a vegetarian may be. Dessert was the same scenario as the starter, our first 2 choices had ran out. One of our party ordered a cheese plate which came with no crackers, yet a slab of butter appeared. 20 minutes later, crackers arrived. May be they had gone out to get some. Not sure if the main chef was out that night or if other reviewers are more easily satisfied but it was a poor evening and expensive to boot. £35 for Soup, Pie and my third of three choices for dessert.

I can only speak of my experience, we chose our menu prior to arrival so everything ordered was available. Nicely cooked, tasted great, service was good. I couldn't fault my visit.

I believe you sit down to eat at 8pm. That's normally the only sitting.
