Description
This Stable is situated on Plymouth’s bustling Barbican waterfront. We’ll have the usual tasty offering of over 80 varieties of cider and sourdough base pizza with homemade tomato sauce and delicious locally sourced toppings. Try The Blazing Saddle; slow roasted pulled beef, smoked bacon, caramelised onion, grilled red pepper and mozzarella topped with sour cream and jalapeno chillies. Phew! Upstairs, we’ve been busy building a sun terrace which has the best waterside views in Plymouth. It’s simple food, that’s simply amazing. We proudly source prime local ingredients from the finest growers and producers in the region to create our totally unique, West Country inspired dishes. It goes without saying that everything is responsibly sourced and prepared. No preservatives go into our food and everything is freshly hand-made from scratch, from our organic sourdough pizza bases to our super spicy Naga chilli oil. Each day our chefs chop, slice, stir, fry and roast fresh ingredients, preparing them for topping our delicious pizzas. We wouldn’t have it any other way. Non-Gluten Ingredients (NGI) are available for all pizzas from the main menu – the dough is specially made off site so it’s best you give us a call before your visit to tell us how many in your group will be ordering one. Our organic sourdough pizza bases are 100% animal-free and, as everything is made to order, vegans and vegetarians can drop the meat and cheese from any pizza. We recommend the scrummy ‘The Billy the Kid’ (without the cheese for you vegans) with caramelised onions, field mushrooms, fresh spinach, tomato and roasted hazelnuts. Please note that our lunchtime menu in all locations during school holidays and bank holidays is unavailable.
