The Prancing Pony and Stables Restaurant
The attractive stone stable buildings have been converted into a family room for adults and children and a lounge bar for over 16’s with a blazing wood-burning stove in the winter. Meals are offered to suit most dietary requirements including vegetarians and celiacs - with a list of ingredients provided in the back of the menu to assist those with special diets.
The Stables Restaurant, buy the best ingredients, keep things simple, cook things to perfection ... this is the philosophy at The Stables Restaurant at Rivendale.
All our meat is sourced from an excellent local butcher who buys the best meat - most of it local, much of it organic, hangs it for a lengthy period to allow the flavour to develop, and does not inject it with water etc.
Our menu has a seasonal variation with a daily special board influenced by the availability of local produce such as fish and game. As well as hearty stews and delicious pies, we offer roasts, curries, homemade soups, buffets, roasts and canapés to suit all occasions.
Menu and Wine List
With a well-equipped commercial kitchen, professional chef on site and wealth of excellent local meat and produce to hand, we can provide delicious snacks and meals to suit most tastes and budgets – from a bacon sandwich to a superb fillet steak.
We have considerable experience of catering for weddings, parties and business conferences over the years which have demanded both elaborate buffets and simple roast dinners and so can offer suggestions to suit most requirements. However, our guiding philosophy is to source the best local ingredients, keep it simple, cook it well.
Our standard wine list is deliberately brief but offers exceptional value for money. We do however work directly with a wine merchant (rather than through a brewery) who can source a wide range of vintages on a sale or return basis to suit your requirements.
