Fab food great range to choose from, great service though can be a bit noisy in the bar. Tops at looking after children with their menu and a 'play' area

We often pop in here for a really good steak or hamburger, servings are very generous and extremely well priced - my kind of pub!

Six of us arrived without booking for dinner prior to attending a concert and we were told they were fully booked. However the lovely wait staff shuffled things and found us a table. The meals were served quickly and we're good sized portions. We ordered the Salmon Salad and the Ribs. The Salmon had lovely crispy skin and the Ribs... More

Went there with friends. Little children running around with out supervision grrr and just about tripping up staff. The Pizza I had, had a thick base and not all that great. The ribbs (special of the day) eaten by the men looked nice but not enough ribbs and came with coleslaw and mushy potatoe salad. Better place next door

A visit for lunch with family was disappointing. Food was average to ordinary. Service was ok, but not outstanding. There was the odor of stale cigarette smoke both inside and outside and tables were sticky. We wont be back. Ratatouille

The place has a rustic feel, with courtyard, as well in inside seating. It was a bit cold when we were there, so we opted to sit inside. Surrounded by families, a few tv screens showing sports and some really interesting decorations, the feel was quite homely and welcoming. The menu is quite varied and my family had meat, fish...

This was our first time at stables on alpha and we both really enjoyed it. We had trouble deciding what to have for dinner as the menu was packed with delicious sounding options. Pork belly and smokey ribs were awesome. Can't fault our waitress, she was attentive but also left us alone. Decor of the building was really cool. Not... More
