Blackthorn _ left this review about The Stable

Recently opened in a former Pizza Hut restaurant having relocated from their short-lived George Street branch, this one apparently gives them more room and allows them to offer a greater choice. It also, I would have thought, is a better location and is likely to attract far more in the way of passing trade.

Inside it’s light and airy with good sized windows on three sides, and something of a rustic feel with much exposed brick walling as well as a parquet wooden floor and wooden balustrade elsewhere whilst in contrast the black painted ceiling has air conditioning ducting clearly visible. There are a small number of picnic benches outside that give good views towards Kingsmead Square, but space here is at a premium and they are not likely to be vacant for any length of time.

We didn’t eat on this occasion, but a quick glance at the menu showed their usual selection of pizzas and pies, many renamed to suit the location such as Great Poultry Street, Pump Room Piggy and a Bath Blaster. Prices for the pizzas were mostly somewhere around the £11 mark, and there were also a few pies and salad options.

Being primarily a cider venue, beer choice was limited with just Seafarer’s Ale on draught. Ciders were predominantly from the South West and included Pilton, Sandford Orchard’s Devon Red, Dorset Draught, Lilley’s Bee Sting, Ashridge Devon Blush, Ashridge Devon Gold, Burrow Hill Alf ’n’ Alf and Cornish Orchard’s Gold. The current choice was chalked up on a board next to the bar and helpfully included the ABV and sweetness, although unhelpfully, not the price. A further 13 were available from boxes as well as numerous more bottles.
