Excellent service and good value varied menu.
Pleasantly greeted at the bar where we bought drinks whilst waiting for the rest of our party, then shown to our table.
It took a while for the server to take our order, but worse still... the order didn't get to the kitchen.
Our friends at an adjacent table ordered just after us, but we'd still not received our starters when they were already getting their main course. Any attentive server should've realised something was wrong and investigated. I had to go to the bar myself to find out what had gone wrong.
Once the mistake had been realised, a very apologetic staff member offered us a free round of drinks, (thank you).
My fillet steak was m/rare not Blue as requested. My friends sirloin was Blue and not m/rare as requested. The steaks had been left under a heat lamp along with the fresh green leaf dressing which looked parched and very sorry for itself.
We also ate there the previous evening.. and before we had a chance to order desert, the bill was presented (without being requstef) despite the female server saying that she'd return for desert orders after the main even though the booking was late in the evening.
A similar time last year we waited over 2 hours for food.
Key staff members trying to be professional but with very poorly trained servers and average kitchen staff. Shame, because the Old Stables is a very pleasant place to be, with a nice atmosphere.
Very helpful and pleasant staff, lovely food, and 20% off too! Excellent, will be back!
fantasitc food, staff made you feel very welcome (professional) and great venue
Arrived and was not shown to our table, told it was over there. Had to go and get our own menu and eventually half own a waitress to order - she was lovely and obviously not working on her section. They had run out of tarts. Good arrived and was ok. Service was poor, asked for some water, nothing arrived had to ask again. Was a real shame
Lovely ambience, great service & good food choice
Great choice,great service,great FOOD
food was very good, good portions, value for money, good service from all staff. Only disappointment a problem with many restaurants food could have been served up hotter!
We were warmly welcomed and shown to our table and awaited the rest of our party to arrive. The only downside was one of our party hard a terrible fillet steak, but the team at the old stables did not quibble about it and removed the cost from the bill. So overall the experience was very good.
