We’ve just got time tonight to write our first restaurant review! (That is if we can see through the cider haze…)
The Stable is a brand new restaurant/bar on the Bristol harbourside. Their tagline is “Pizza, Pies, and Cider” and though it would be hard to disappoint with such an awesomely simple concept they really deliver. It is set inside one of the old warehouses by the harbour. Inside the spacious, high-ceilinged restaurant long tables are arranged with benches, which really helps to create a west country farmhouse atmosphere.
We both grabbed a cider as soon as we got there, as part of the “Tuck-in Tuesday” special offer – a pizza, a cider and a side salad for £10 (bargain! Living up to my “Fats” moniker) – and ordered a Harbourside Herbivore (West Country blue cheese, spinach, potato, roasted red onion, tomato and mozzarella – Fats) and a West Country Porker (Bath Pig Co. chorizo, mozzarella and rocket – Bird). Both were delicious! Thin and crispy bases, incredibly tasty toppings. This place really stands up for itself as a pizza restaurant in a city where it’s not difficult to find amazing pizza.
Of course it would be sacrilege to visit without trying the cider, even on a work night… Between us we tried quite a selection (although we didn’t quite feel up to sampling all 30+ varieties). Our favourite was Devon Red – tangy and sweet, perfectly refreshing. We can’t wait to try the rest of them, although we might have to spread it out a bit between visits.
The Stable comes highly recommended, make sure you get there soon!
