The Stable Bar and Restaurant chain is fast becoming well know across the country for its unique style and delicious Pizzas, Pies and Ciders that they offer in abundance. Yesterday was a joyous day for Southampton residents as the doors opened to The Stable in Southampton!

The Southampton Guide were delighted to be amongst the first there to try out this new restaurant and sample its tasty menu.

The view from the entrance.

Set in Above Bar Street, this trendy yet rustic venue looks right at home in Southampton’s Cultural Quarter. It’s glass front and optional outside seating is instantly welcoming and you know come the summer those outside benches will be full with content visitors.

As you head in you are greeted by high ceilings, rows of wooden benches, an open kitchen at the back, a very well stocked bar to your left, and a mezzanine area with more seating.

The restaurants roots stem from Dorset where the chain was originally founded, and this influence is apparent throughout. You instantly feel transported to the country, all that’s missing is the hay bales! The clever thing about it however, is despite its rural feel the venue maintains a look of sophistication and an air of class.

The menu!

With its country upbringing, and for what The Stable is famous for, the range of Ciders is impressive. Behind the bar is literally a wall of everyones favourite apple-based beverage. The hardest part of your visit will be to decide which one to try first!

Once you’ve decided on your drink your next decision is what to eat! A nice touch of the menu is that every Stable has an individual menu to its location. For example on the Pizza menu at The Stable Southampton you could enjoy a Wooly Woolston, Hampshire Hog or a Sotonian Scorcher!

Let’s not beat around the bush, Pizza is what they do and they do it well! Oven baked and prepared from scratch. All their food is locally sourced, with no nasty’s added and freshly prepared each day by their team.

The proof is in the taste! Fresh and delicious, and with such a huge choice of toppings you’ll be hard-pushed not to find one to suit your taste.

As far as restaurants in Southampton go, we have no doubts in our minds that The Stable Southampton will be around for a long time to come! A must-visit venue, whether it’s to try their selection of ciders or enjoy a meal with friends – you will not be disappointed!
