Don’t you just love it when you come across a hidden little restaurant that you’ve never been to before? We were heading to Hampton Court Palace for a day out (see future post) and were absolutely starving so decided to stop off somewhere for a spot of lunch before going for a wander around Hampton Court.
We continue driving past the Hampton Court entrance, got to the mini roundabout and turned left and then just a little way down on the left saw a sign advertising a speedy £5 lunch offer. Perfect!
Turns out we discovered a restaurant and bar called “The Stables” in East Moseley. It was absolutely dead in there, not a single other customer – but … we arrived at a ridiculous time of the day (11.30am) and who actually eats in a restaurant at that time!
The staff consisted of one waitress who was so lovely. She left us choose our seats which made us smile and then took our drinks order. We were served quickly and provided the menus whilst having the £5 lunch special explained to us.
The concept of the lunch is basically that they had two different choices of precooked and ready to go lunch specials for the day – sausages and mash (photo above) and a chicken dinner (photo below). Both served with a great selection of veggies!
There were four of us eating, and only two went for the £5 lunch menu with the other two eating off the main menu. For £5 – the plates were absolutely full. The food was absolutely delicious, piping hot and cooked so very well – plates were completely wiped clean!
The other two both opted for the same – a New York Club Sandwich which consisted of Grilled Chicken Breast, Smoked Bacon, Cheese, Avocado, Tomato, Lettuce, and Mayo in a Triple Toasted Sandwich, with Fries and Slaw for the price of £9.
This thing was stacked high and was absolutely amazing! All the ingredients were fresh and delicious. It certainly hit the spot that’s for sure! You know when food is good when everyone stops talking!
None of us could believe the value for money, and this is now a restaurant completely on our radar! We are planning on heading back one day for a taste of their carvery which from their website looks stunning.
