Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What a great find, 1st time here, the food was so tasty and a lovely menu, great staff, loved the surroundings. We couldn’t fault it and will definitely be back. We both had the chicken liver pate, my husband had the steak (to die for)...and my pork medallions were just melt in your mouth. Chocolate torte with baileys and iced coffee, Tia Maria and walnut slice for puddings, What’s not to like😁More

We had a fantastic meal at the Stables to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The food is excellent; fresh and beautifully cooked, the staff are friendly and the restaurant has a lovely ambience. We look forward to dining there again.

Wow we tried to get into the Stables when last in Tenby in 2022 so this time we pre booked and enjoyed a lovely meal. We both chose a half lobster main course and the prawns to start. Fantastic and fairly priced as the two...half lobsters even though they were presented differently were priced as a whole lobster. We ended with a cheese board to share which was enough for two. A few glasses of red and one glass of white for my wife all was very, very good. . Pleasant all round and would highly recommend and would return if we return to Tenby in the future.More

This place is a master of disguise. A chintzy, inviting doorway within the town walls: yet a very ordinary 60s-style pine-tabled interior. Polite welcome. Prompt service. Full menu. And eye-watering, over-inflated prices even by Tenby's already excessive restaurant pricing. Which wouldn't matter so much if...they were worth it. The best sauce in the world cannot disguise poor-quality meat.More

Fantastic little bistro run by a husband and wife team who clearly have lots of experience in the hospitality industry. We skipped starters and went straight for the fillet steak with Stilton cheese, this seems to be the restaurants signature dish and was simply amazing....It was served with a red wine sauce and a side of fresh veg. We plumped for a bottle of reasonably priced Merlot to wash our meal down with and enjoyed it so much ordered a second bottle. Cheese cake for dessert which again was excellent. The service is fantastic and the table is yours for the evening so you can relax and enjoy your food and wine. The bill was as you would expect for a quality experience but we will remember the food long after we have forgotten the price. Highly recommendedMore
