The Stables Racecourse Restaurant

Beguiling bad service and bland food lets this popular pub down

  • The Stables Racecourse Restaurant
When this racing-themed pub opened back in January 2012, much was made of the separate upstairs dining space. Yet on our last visit we were told the restaurant had closed indefinitely – but were assured the same menu was being served downstairs. That may be so, but wherever the food is being served when you visit, we simply can’t recommend it. We’ve found ingredients to be weak and their preparation to be poor. The ‘manager’s special’ – a traditional roast dinner – can be especially disappointing. Worse still is the service, which we’ve found embarrassingly incompetent on a number of occasions. As a pub, The Stables ticks all the right boxes, and as basic grub to munch over a few drinks you could do far worse. But any of this venue’s pretensions to finer gastro-pub dining are sadly unfounded. The Stables Racecourse Restaurant
