We had visited the Winchester branch but this time decided to visit Southampton prior to a function in town - and the offer of a free cider tasting board helped!
We had booked but there was plenty of room early evening on a Saturday and we were seated on a bench downstairs. Even though all the signs pointed towards ordering at the bar we were AGAIN served at the table - can only assume this is normal when they're not busy.
Service was good and the pizza and pie were both excellent (we shared). But the best thing again was the excellent cider selection which was well represented on our great cider tasting board (which we shared).
Came again as part of a work function and was excellent again!!

Thanks for your great review Phil!

Delighted to hear that you enjoyed your cider tasting board and hope this helped broaden your cider horizons! In relation to your other comment; we've just recently started full table service to our guests as we feel this allows for a quicker, more personalised service from our Stablehands and no more long queues at the bar either (good news for all!).

We look forward to welcoming you back again in the near future,

Mike

Came for a meal with a group for a girls night out.
Great friendly atmosphere with live music and a great selection of ciders to choose from. Booked online which was easy and straight forward. First time eating at a Stable restaurant. Will definitely be returning.

Visited the Stable for a quick dinner before the theatre. I usually avoid chain restaurants but the menu seemed fit for purpose so we went in.
We ordered a salad and a pizza both of which were delicious and fresh. The staff were attentive and helpful and the decor inside was interesting and quirky.

We both left feeling pleasantly surprised and will certainly be back.

Went to the one in Winchester and came away disappointed but gave them another go. This one is much better.
Different menu that was accessible.
Food was well priced, they had a great range of ciders as well.
Restaurant was well located too.
Might be worth booking depending on when you're planning on going.

Thanks for your review; glad to here your second visit to one of our sites was an improvement on the first; by the sounds of it you've visited in between our recent menu change across all sites, but we agree with you that it's very much an improvement with a great selection of new dishes.

We hope to see you again soon,

Mike

We traveled over to Southampton from the Isle of Wight to see a concert and have a special meal out. Having not booked a table anywhere we 'ended up' at the Stable. Where we were immediately seated, with the staff not being tempted to subtly tell us off for not booking on a Saturday night as is so often the case.

I had pizza and garlic bread, my partner had lamb pie. This was the best pizza I have ever eaten including the tour of Italy we had 2 years ago! The base so thin and light, the ingredients clearly top quality and tasty. My partner said the pie was the best he'd ever eaten. He had crumble and I had ice cream again both lovely.

The cider choice was amazing and I did opt for the tasting platter. Usually I am less keen on the flat room temp ciders, however as they were small portions and alternated I enjoyed them and would have that again.

The atmosphere was chilled out and we were not made to feel rushed. I liked the self contained unisex toilets, finding them to be innovative, clean and not to be queuing. The staff were pleasant without being cloying and the food arrived very quickly and was hot and well presented.

So in summary I was reluctant to eat here, as I'd not thought pie and pizza 'special' enough for our 10 year anniversary dinner out. How very wrong I was!!! this was the most special meal we've had for a long time and we will be back.
