Sunday roast to die for!
12 October 2017
A 19th-century coaching inn, The Stables, north of Glasgow, resides in an eye-catching part of the countryside with the Forth and Clyde Canal nearby. Greeted with a vintage stone and oak doorway, you can enjoy the British pub cuisine from the pretty beer garden or by the cosy hearth-fire in winter. Decorated with old-fashioned mirrors, clocks and art, The Stables has an attractive rustic atmosphere.
Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Stables menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Stables ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.
Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

Customer reviews for The Stables
((((( 8 January 2018 by Peter from Wishaw
Very good feedback from the group of eleven cyclists who dined at the Stables (this is our second New Year trip here, having come last year as well). I, personally, really liked the Steak and mushroom pie with one caveat that the carrots were too cold to eat. The mini desserts were also popular with the group.
Service was excellent, especially considering we arrived with 11 rather than the anticipated 8 cyclists!!

Sunday roast to die for!
((((* 1 September 2017 by Dawn Keltie from Glasgow
We were a party of seven with two children. The purpose of the visit was one of the children had a birthday. We were served by Lynsey who was great, very attentive, patient and could not have done more to ensure we had a good evening. We had varying food orders from one course to two courses and the children's menu. My comments about the food are that the main courses were excellent and generous portions. The starter of prawns and black scallops were a bit small for the price so disappointing. The children's pasta was a bit on the small side and we ordered another portion. We had bought a Birthday cake so we did not order a sweet. All in all it was a very good experience and the children were made to feel very welcome, especially by Lynsey.

Decided to give this restaurant a 2nd chance after a disappointing visit in June.
The ambience is great and the right distance for a good walk to and from the restaurant along the canal. Staff are friendly but attention to detail lacking.
Menu rather uninspiring but my main concern is the VERY slow service. We waited a long time for our order to be taken, we waited ages for our main course and again for our dessert-my friend had brownie and ice cream that was almost entirely liquid before reaching the table-this should never have been served.
Portion control is also an issue as my Pecan Pie was so small in comparison to the Brownie. Coffee was served almost immediately after the order taken - approx. 10 mins BEFORE the dessert!
This could be such a nice restaurant - young staff are pleasant/polite but they need training as they are clearly unaware of what is required to create a good customer experience.
So disappointing that this restaurant, and many others, do not train and monitor staff performance. Easy to solve if you know anything about Hospitality Management.

I had not been to this venue for years, but had become aware of recent awards so thought I would pay a visit for lunch. On entering the building the staff could not have been more welcoming , the waiting staff were very helpful with personality plus, and the food was absolutely delicious. I will certainly be visiting the stables on a regular basis in the future ??????
