The Stable [pizza | pie | cider]  | Dorset

Fine food and crafted cider set within an alluring atmosphere. This is where it all began! The first Stable restaurant in deepest Dorset. The story began in 2006 when Richard and Nikki took on the mammoth challenge of transforming a former 16th century beautiful old stable block, which looked so far beyond repair they left it vacant for years. When Richard’s brother Andy returned from his travels they came up with the idea to turn the space into a cider house, serving gourmet Dorset pizzas unlike anything else. In 2009, after a whole lot of hard graft, The Stable was born. It was a huge success and remains incredibly popular amongst locals and holidaymakers....a must!
