Restaurant Review – The Stable, Bristol

I’ve had a lovely yet tiring day with my class on a visit to Hampton Court Palace. It was really stunning although I don’t feel like doing much more than eating my dinner and watching some TV this evening!

Last weekend, Ian and I took a little trip to Bristol to meet some friends for lunch. We wanted somewhere central and casual and so I suggested The Stable along the Harbourside. There is one of these restaurants in Bath too and I love their specialities of pizza, pie and cider. It turns out it was the perfect option for our group as we wanted a long lunch and somewhere baby-friendly.

There was such an impressive list of local ciders we decided the only way to taste as many as possible was to order a couple of their tasting boards. Although there were a few gross ones, it was lovely to try a variety of sweet and dry ciders and perries.

We all opted for their speciality pizzas and it was great to see so many local ingredients and references to Bristol and the South West in their menu! I had the special which was topped with roasted chicken, field mushrooms, mozzarella and a tarragon cream – a rather unique combination but one that was bursting with flavour from the tarragon.

Ian went rather off-piste too and ordered ‘The Avonmouth Angler’ – a fishy pizza that included smoked mackerel, smoked salmon, spinach and mozzarella. I’m not sure I’m a convert but he loved it!

Nothing ground-breaking here but who can say no to a good pizza and cider?! x

About hannahhotcakes

My name is Hannah. I live near Bath in a lovely village in the Cotswolds with my husband Ian, the love of my life for the past 10 years, in our dream cottage. I have landed my dream job as a primary school teacher and I can’t think of anything else I would rather be doing. I am a self-confessed foodie and I love to cook, bake, and eat out as much as possible. Here are some things I love: My friends and family, travelling, fresh flowers, good books, having breakfast on my balcony, horror films, Christmas, tea, Las Vegas, lie-ins, red wine, Liverpool FC, music, sausage dogs, Spain, rare steak, fashion, cheese, American TV series and camping. And here are my pet hates: People dressed as animals, whistling, being rushed, being made to wait, girls who act stupid to impress a man, spiders, sunburn and rocket (it comes with EVERYTHING!)
