I was in a party of 5 seeking a restaurant for dinner on a very cold night in Arrowtown. We booked the Stables and were not dissapointed. Both the food and service was excellent. I highly recommend it.

We were there during the busy autumn festival - great outdoor location - chatty staff. The platter is excellent value at $12 which includes hummus, chorizo and bread

Enjoy the ambience of our fully restored 1876 stone building. Open for lunch and brunch from 11am with dinner being served from 5pm. Our al fresco setting is extremely popular during the summer months or take a step back in time in our beautiful interior for fireside dining. Our food is classic and hearty, focusing on slow cooked New Zealand produce, Aged steaks from the grill, and fresh seasonal produce. An excellent array of Central Otago wines. Feel free to join us for a full dining experience or enjoy some beverages and tapas.
