Stopped in here for lunch and had a great experience. The soup of the day was really delicious, and everyone enjoyed their meals. The staff member which served us was very friendly and catered for our group with young children.

Whilst Arrowtown city centre was pretty touristy and disappointing the Stables Restaurant and Wine Bar was outstanding!! My partner and I had the most delicious meals in a lovely environment with great service. Worth a visit just to have a meal here!!!

I like this cod fish and chip with peas on the side. The curry source is great to pair with. My hubby ordered the pumpkin soup was good too.
