HI Team from Stables, thank you for a lovely evening. I would like to provide a couple of minor suggestions for a degustation meal. The wine for the meals was often bought out 10 to 15 minutes prior to the dish being placed on the table. The issue is you often sip on the wine due to the time between the wine being poured and the dish being served. Its note a big issue but one worth high lighting because that the only thing I could find. Everything else from the waiters, the food, the wine, it was brilliant.

Stunning setting. We managed to score the private dining room-very intimate, quiet and private. We had the 7 course degustation menu. Superb. The lavender desert was exquisite. The wine per glass selection was great. Service was unobtrusive yet informative when describing each dish. Thoroughly recommended.

This was our 2nd dining experience at Stones. Put simply Superb. We will come back again as the seasonal menus each time offer a new experience in rustic dining. The fresh ingredients sourced for the creative dishes and perfectly matched wines are thoughtfully outstanding. The service is excellent, knowledgeable and unobtrusive. The estate is beautiful and the dining room spacious. We are so lucky to be close to the Valley.

What an extraordinary experience. We had read that this place was good but the experience was beyond our expectations. Beautifully crafted dishes with extraordinary flavour texture, stunning ambience and really fabulous service. We couldn’t have been more impressed.

The whole experience was amazing and faultless. From having the door opened for us when we arrived to the beautiful decor and ambiance! Even the bathroom had essential oils burning. The food was sensational-we will definitely be back ;-)

The Stables at Stones is absolutely beautiful. It is the ideal spot for a wedding.
However I probably wouldn’t go back due to the food being over priced, not very tasty, re-heated and minimal. We were also put on a table with another couple even though the place was empty.
A friend suggested we go to the Barn, so we will go back for that. It looked a lot more busy when we went there.
I’ve paid $65 per head elsewhere and were actually full and it was much better. Can’t fault the atmosphere though.

We received a voucher from a friend for The Stables, but I would have paid every cent myself. The quality of their shared plate Lich is on another level, the service I highly professional, the decor is wonderfully rustic and the selection of wines is enormous!

The setting is wonderful in autumn, light streaming in through ample windows and a charming garden outlook. Shared plates idea is fun and the variety and quality of food was excellent. Only down side is hot items cool quickly because of the small portion sizes. Beef cheek was cold and congealed by the time we got to it. Calamari was chewy. Minor niggles really, the overall experience was great and we'll be back.
