    Beautifully converted Stables. Plenty of space between Tables. Service and Food were excellent. We ate inside but they also have lovely seating outside which would be great in better weather. We went early evening on a Saturday.

    It was a quiet Thursday night when we visited the stables for my husband’s birthday. The service was friendly and professional and our dishes were beautifully presented and delicious. There is a lovely ambiance, even when the stables is having a quiet night. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening, made the more special by a surprise dessert of fresh macarons and fruit made my the chef as a surprise.

    We chose the Stables for a special celebration because there was a good variety of vegan options, when we looked a couple of months ago. When we did visit on a Sunday in October there were very limited options for vegans. But we did have a very nice meal.

    A little underwhelming…roast beef was really well-cooked and tasty; potatoes hard and dry; veg overcooked; Sunday menu quite limited and uninspiring.

    We went here on a Sunday afternoon for a roast. We went a few months ago and had an amazing meal and have been recommending to everyone since. This time was incredibly disappointing as the food was tasteless! It was also completely different to what we had before in terms of presentation and what was included. We both ordered beef after they’d sold out of pork. It wasn’t roast beef, it was a thick and chewy steak.. the starter was tiny and also disappointing as it just didn’t taste of anything. The staff were lovely and accommodating but the food really let this place down. Considering the price, we won’t be returning.

    I booked following receiving an email promoting their new pizza oven so I thought it an ideal venue for my son’s birthday, however the pizza oven only operates until 5 so we had to eat of the menu. The main took almost an hour to be delivered we were told the chef was not feeling well! The setting is very nice on a Summers evening but the service and cost spoilt the evening.

    Food was really good and pleasantly surprised. Menu was very short but that can be a good thing as I think what they do they do quite well. We were outside which was quite nice on these good weather days we are having, so not sure how the seating inside is. Waiter was nice but we had to call him a few times and got a couple of items wrong on our bill that was easily corrected. Overall it was a really nice experience.

    Our first visit, and certainly will not be the last, it was just perfect for a special but quiet and relaxed birthday lunch for two. The lunch menu, while fairly limited, was just right and the lovely garden/stable-yard setting really added to the experience, enhanced the aroma of the lavender plants... oh, and look out for the quirk clock atop the old stables :-)

    We were both very impressed by the quality of the food - lamb and pork in our case, followed by sticky toffee pudding. Good to see wine by the glass at a sensible price (virtually no mark-up on the full bottle price!) Service very good from all of the friendly team there

    Went for Sunday lunch with 2 vegetarians and there was no veggie roast option. They ended up having the lunch just without the meat with some strange gravy. Equally the restaurant was very quiet even though it was Sunday lunchtime. Such a shame, we were looking forward to trying the stables...

    The Stables at CantleyResponded on June 16, 2022I am sorry to hear that we have not met your expectations. It's a pity that you did not say anything to the Restaurant Manager who was looking after your table on the day. I believe that you were served an ample amount of roasted vegetables though. All produce that we make in our kitchen is made from fresh. You may find that often venues that have "veggie roast" on the menu buy it in, rather than make it fresh. We will review this going forward and in the meantime we recommend our Vegan Menu.

    Overall a very nice meal. We went at 3pm-a quiet time with only 3 other people in the restaurant. The problem with this is that the main menu is NOT available at this time-not made clear on the website. We wanted scallops which was not available on the simplified lunch menu at this time. Howver, the waitress offered to ask the chef if he could do it as the restaurant was not busy with just the two of us. He did and they were superb. My steak was excellent. Only 1 Creme Brulee was available which was very good. Recommended.

    I don’t like to write this as the staff were great but I was, for the first time, disappointed. The Stables is the place I take people since I moved here a year ago and they are always impressed. My in laws were over for the first time in 2 years and so it was our first choice. We hadn’t checked the menu but had always loved the Camembert and broccoli and Stilton so it was a shame not to see that on there, but we know menus change. Service was good but it was very quiet (not a problem but a reflection?) and the fish was quite greasy, the triple cooked chips were certainly not as good as previously (not sure if they were home made) and the bread was quite dry. The steak in the sandwich was nice and the mussels were good. I am not sure I would go back now but would like to think it was a one off. Such a lovely place.

    We took my Mum there for her Birthday as we’d heard it was a nice restaurant. The menu was very limited and the food was awful. I couldn’t eat my meal as it was utterly disgusting. My daughter had a bug in her soup and they didn’t even take this off the bill until we complained. There were only a handful of bookings and yet the service was really slow. We will never go there again.

    This was for a joint birthday celebration and we were 5 Adults and 2 children. Meal came to £250 including a frw drinkscwhichbwas reasonable if it weere jot for: Nearly 1 hour wait for the food Portion sizes were too small for adults. It was delicious but the steak was chewy and full of grisle which I did not expect for £22. And eveb though the table was booked it was bot ready. Half hour wait and the place was empty but for us and 2 other couples. We also have feedback to the staff on the day; especially about portion sizes and wer mey by just nodding blank faces..oh ok...?!! The place itself if lovely with nice outdoor space, too. Would I come again? Unless they omproved on their portion sizes and service, I doubt it.
