Me and the boyf were invited to review The Stable* restaurant in Birmingham. I was so blady excited as I've always wanted to visit, but just never got round to it! We decided to go on a Thursday evenig as it was a bit quieter, but to be honest, it was still very vibrant and busy! Guess that just shows how good of a restaurant it is eh! We were greeted by the lovely Becca, who would be our host for the evening. She really made sure we felt comfortable, gave us all the information we needed and she was super friendly and smiley!
Becca served us their famous Cider tasting board, with 5 of their most popular ciders at the moment. They rotate them quite frequently, depending on what's popular that week/month. I think this is a fab idea especially if you love cider (like myself), and it's only £7.50 for 5 1/3 pints! Firstly, there was Cornish Gold (4.5%) which to me tasted a lot like Magners as it was very light, and was one of my faves as Magners is my cider of choice (it's gotta be, I have Irish blood!). I also tried Robinsons Flagon (4.5%) which in my opinion was extremely sweet and somewhat tasted like vodka to me! Beesting (7.5%) was another one of my faves, as it tasted like prosecco with a hint of fruit, can't go wrong with that can ya! Old Rosie (7.3%) was also on the board, and although it is a classic, I personally don't get on with it, I find it too heavy for my taste! Now, last but by all means not least, is the Mango cider (4%). Becca said this is the favourite at the moment and I can see why, it tasted amazing and so light and fruity! Almost like juice! I could drink it alllll day everyyyyy day.
Next is the best part. Pizzzzza. The Stable specialises in Pizza, Pie and Cider, so obviously we had to try the pizza! I had the West Country Porker and Adrian had The Blazing Saddle. The West Country Porker has Bath Pig chorizo, tomato sauce and mozerella topped with rocket. Ohhh my gawd it was amazing, one of the best pizzas I've ever tried. The Blazing Saddle had slow-roasted pulled beef, Denhay Farm dry-cured bacon, caramelsied onions, red peppers, jalapenos, tomato sauce and mozzarella. He was very impressed with this pizza to say the least! All pizzas are baked on a sour dough base which makes it extra yummy. They also have a vegan and gluten free menu which I was impressed by!
Sadly, we didn't have room for dessert but the dessert menu did look incredible. Hellooo ice cream and crumble! Becca also mentioned there was an ice-cream cider sorbet, which I'm more than happy to try next time! Overall we had a lovely visit, the staff are so friendly and smiley, the food and drink were incredible and it was fast service. Definitely recommend!
The Stable is located on John Bright Street, Birmingham and is open 12-11pm.
