A small menu, but very well considered. We ate here on two consecutive evenings, and everything we ordered was top quality. Portion sizes were perfect.

Were impressed when we went to the frday steak night in Nov 2015 and booked again for a Saturday night in the following year. Was exceptional noisey with one table in particular rather out of order and way over the top. Definately a less enjoyable experience from our last visit. Maybe a saturday night is different. Food is very good.

We visited last year for a birthday meal as we were staying in sought on hall. It was an absolutely delicious meal and I'm sad to hear that the stables is now looking to be changed in to a VIP events venue. Hopefully they keep the bar as this was a great unique spot! We loved a couple of drinks... More

I don't normally leave reviews but thought my fantastic experience was worth sharing. I visited the Stables on the 12th of February for an early Valentines dinner with my girlfriend. I was greeted by Gareth, restaurant manager at the bar and offered drinks before moving upstairs for the meal. I noticed that the wine racks at the entrance of the... More

The evening started bad, no record of our booking. Not to worry they were not busy(on Saturday night?). Waiting for our friends we ordered a Merlot (No Merlot)..In the dining room we were seated and given the list of things `off`.The selection of meals was slim and if fine dining means putting as little as possible on the plate and...

There are many bad points about this restaurants to write in this review, so I will summerise. SERVICE If you think you are going some posh by visting The Stables at Soughton Hall, think again because every bit of the service was terrible. FOOD two of the main courses were out of stock the chicken and lamb and there was... More

Having once been fairly regular visitors in the early 2000's, and having not eaten at The Stables for about 5 years, my husband suggested we go there for dinner yesterday evening. What an incredible disappointment. The only thing that had improved was the car-parking arrangements! We arrived in the bar, only to be studiously ignored by the staff, so went... More

unfortunately during our stay here this place had been booked for a private party, we did have afternoon drinks and early evening drinks but could not eat here. it is a great looking place with a great horse racing theme and we agree we would return to eat here if the chance arises.
