Fish was very good as per usual but why change the chips ? they arrived in a basket which only made them cold, also cold mushy peas dolloped on the paper on the cold plate ( why the paper ? ), didn't enjoy it as much as usual, please go back to the peas in a hot bowl and chips... More

No one goes to a real ale pub with micro-brewery expecting or wanting a posh restaurant. Staying in the hotel all we wanted was a quick lunch in relaxed surroundings. But while the decor is relaxed the Stables isn't. Although open, we weren't allowed to sit at a table we could eat at until 12. So we ordered drinks and... More

I have said variable only because we had a meal that was good on Friday but the Saturday meal was excellent. So, just a tad disappointed about Fridays. I recommend ordering french fries rather than chips. Also don't miss the Game Pie if this is your thing. It was gorgeous. The staff were excellent and a small error was corrected... More

Ate here for my daughters birthday last week. The service was excellent, staff really friendly and helpful. Everybody loved their meal and without exception the food was fantastic. Great menu and great value! Will definitely be back

Popped in for a quick lunch. The stables always seems busy which is surely a good sign. They have their own micro brewery on sight which is quirky although have had the odd dodgy pint (can't be helped). My wife and I both has fish and chips with mushy peas. Fish was nice if not a little greasy. Mushy peas... More

We were back in the north east over Christmas and didn't waste any time in arranging a visit. Genuinely my favourite place in the north east. Lovely staff, excellent food, wood fire and amazing beer brewed by John onsite. I can't recommend the Silver Buckles highly enough! It's a fantastic place year round but add a touch of snow at...

The staff were all very friendly and efficient but the menu was very limited. Most of the meals were casseroles or broth they did have 3 fish dishes on and burgers the only grills were steak no chicken grilled or roast no pasta meat dishes so we found it very limited for our taste. The food we did have was... More

This was a family lunch which was in some respect good but in others it was a little disappointing. Service was very good, well looked after and everyone was very attentive. A small niggle but not a major problem were a group of young children who ate in the restaurant and whilst a little lively, I found it strange they... More

This really is a quite nice little venue situated at the side of Beamish Hall. A pleasant, warm atmosphere and they have made the very most of the stables part of the restaurant, which boasts a rather impressive fireplace with log fire. The food was pretty good but let down badly by a couple of things. My partner had the... More
