The Stable – Bath (UK)

On our trip to Bath, we were looking for a casual, lively place to enjoy some good food and drink, particularly cider as this is a Somerset specialty. The Stable, with its menu of pizza, pies and cider, was exactly what we were looking for.

The Stable Inside

The Stable has multiple locations (Bath, Bridport, Bristol, Falmouth, Fistral Beach, Plymouth, Poole, Weymouth, Winchester and soon Southampton). Each location has a slightly different menu, in accordance with the local ingredients and cider available.

The Stable in Bath is housed in a beautiful building and seating consists of benches, stools and long tables. This lends a wonderful convivial atmosphere and whilst this place is indeed a proper restaurant, it feels more like a bar with the freedom to order more food and drink whenever you please.

The Cowshed – Bath (UK)

Our short stay in Bath led us to The Cowshed for dinner, where we had a truly fabulous meal. The Cowshed is housed in a sympathetically restored Grade II listed Georgian Building. There are two dining rooms (one on the ground floor and another on the lower level). Both levels lead out to their own terraces with stunning views. The whole restaurant is well laid out, with tables for larger groups on the lower level. We were very impressed with the decor and ambience. A good start!

Everything on the menu sounded delicious but we decided to focus on their steak as our mains. All of their meat is sourced through their own butchery Ruby & White, which is based in Bristol where their flagship restaurant is also located. The Cowshed use other high quality ingredients from carefully sourced producers… and it definitely shows!
