On our way back to Cardrona we called into Arrowtown for something to eat. Having seen The Stables earlier in the day we decided to "give it a go". We were looking to have one of their burgers but they were no longer serving from the lunchtime menu so we both went for the 10hr slow cooked lamb instead. This... More

This is the second time we have been to The Stables and again - every dish was fantastic! Cooked perfectly, served beautifully and tasting amazing. The time prior everything was amazing but the service was lacking, however, this time the service was fantastic also. Definitely worth a visit :)

We only wanted a light meal and they do these lovely sharing platters. Very fresh food and lovely young waiter who was alone and rushed off his feet but continued to be attentive, smiling and polite. A credit to this place. Recommended.

Description
Enjoy the ambience of our fully restored 1876 stone building. Open for lunch and brunch from 11am with dinner being served from 5pm. Our al fresco setting is extremely popular during the summer months or take a step back in time in our beautiful interior for fireside dining. Our food is classic and hearty, focusing on slow cooked New Zealand produce, Aged steaks from the grill, and fresh seasonal produce. An excellent array of Central Otago wines. Feel free to join us for a full dining experience or enjoy some beverages and tapas.
