I was born and raised in Belfast, Northern Ireland but have lived for over 40 years in Toronto Canada. Recently I was visiting Co Down NI for a wedding and on the evening after the wedding we went to the Stables for a family gathering. The atmosphere was very cozy and some of us spent time in the bar area... More

Just took a notion to go out for a meal and ended up here. Lovely setting and surroundings. Atmosphere great and staff very attentive. Food very good and presentation excellent. A bit taken aback by the bill, don't think it was worth it in hindsight but will definitely go back for special occasions.

Ordered beans on toast. When it came after 45 mins, the beans were unsurprisingly cold and the bread was burnt. Manager (called Paul) really couldn't have cared less. He had the cheek to charge me full price!!! A horrible manager in a horrible establishment with horrible food.

harryevans2017, It is very apparent to me, and anyone reading this, that your review is 100% made up of lies and complete fabrications, you clearly have personal issues. Firstly, we do not have beans and toast on the menu. Had you actually been on the premises and looked at a menu, you would have known that. Also, in my 11... More

Have just returned from our visit to the Stables which was very pleasant with very attentive service from all the staff. Food, smoked grilled cod, was tasty and the fish very succulent. Service was good if a bit slow initially but it was worth the wait. The trio of desserts was nicely served and finished off the meal well. Would... More

Called in here one Sunday evening. It has a seperate Gluten free menu and was also informed that they can adapt any dish for gluten free. That is superb as most places do not even try to cater for it. Great atmosphere and casual. We had the steak and prawn combo and must say the steaks were cooked to perfection.... More

Highly recommended The Stables. This was our first visit and service, food and atmosphere was fantastic. Our visit was a Sunday early supper, we decided to eat in the bar area as a 18th party was going to kick off. Staff were so helpful, courteous it was all a great pleasure. Food wonderful. We will definitely go along again. Thank... More

Attended a Tribute Show here last Friday night. One of the most pleasant experiences ive ever had. First time in Groomsport, and in The Stables..and it certainly wont be the last. The 3 course meal was simply delicious - tasty and plentiful. The service from the staff was second to none, both the waiter service and the bar service -... More

Nice relaxing lunch as always at the Stables. Can chill out whilst reading the newspapers over a glass of wine. Cosy winter atmosphere and looks like recently refurbished.
