2 for 1 at Stables Restaurant

Located in the centre of Gee Cross village near Hyde, Stables is a family run restaurant specialising in modern British cuisine.

Chef patron Tim Mason’s cooking has been attracting foodies from the area since opening the restaurant in 2007 and a recent refurbishment has kept the restaurant feeling fresh, comfortable and atmospheric.

Stables has become renowned locally for the quality of the food and service. Tim is passionate about quality, local produce and has developed relationships with suppliers to ensure he gets the best quality available for use in his dishes, all of which are stylishly presented on contemporary crockery.

Everything is made fresh from scratch in the kitchen including all stocks, sauces, terrines and desserts Open for relaxed lunches from seasonal menus including light bites of freshly prepared gourmet sandwiches, Panini, soups to more substantial mains and indulgent desserts.

In the evenings, the 30-cover restaurant moves up a gear to provide an intimate relaxed atmosphere and an accomplished A la Carte menu supplemented with daily changing specials. Expect starters such as a charcuterie plate to share or Mediterranean-inspired warm salads and Bruschetta. While mains offer a choice of local 21 day aged steaks with a choice of sauces, American style slow cooked beef short ribs, fresh fish dishes like pan fried sea bass and a seafood platter with scallops, tiger prawns, sea bass and scampi.

There is also a good choice of meat-free dishes. The wine list offers plenty of wines by the glass, a range of world wines and a selection of bottled beers from around the world.

Stables is a fabulous spot for enjoying great food in a warm, atmospheric environment.

    " The restaurant was so cold we kept our coats on throughout the meal. The passageway between our table and the next was so narrow I had to keep moving my chair.
    The pate starter was a good starter, but the main course: One of us couldn't eat the pork it was so tough and fatty, one of us left 3/4 of the lamb as it was so tough, one of us ate the very tough beef at the cost of indigestion. All the raost potatoes were inedible (underdone). The cauliflower cheese was nice. The deserts were uninspiring although nicely presented.
    Overall a very poor experience and I only give it 2 (rather than 1) as I am stunned by the other reviews and think we must just have has a bad visit (I hope). "

    My wife and I try to visit once every 4-6 weeks. The food is consistently of the highest standards and beautifully presented. The menu is not over bearing with too many choices but there's something for all tastes including vegetarians. The restaurant itself is small and relaxed - Staff are always very polite and attentive.
