London Eats: The Stable, Whitechapel

18 May

The Stable is a new restaurant/bar with two main items on the menu – cider and pizza! Now both of these are my favourites so I may be biased but it makes a refreshing change to London’s recent obsession with craft ale and burgers! (Not that there’s none of that going on at The Stable too!)
Conveniently located in between Aldgate East and Whitechapel underground stations this cool east London venue has a really relaxed atmosphere and the cider tasting rack is amazing moving up in dryness as you go along for the most palatable tasting experience.


Food options include pizzas, pies and salads, all of which have fresh and locally sourced ingredients. I went along to the launch night last month, and my favourite pizza was the meaty, cheesy delicious Longhorn Jim. I describe this as heaven in a slice, and the the menu describes this as:

Marinated Longhorn ground beef (from a lovely bloke in Dorset with the best herd around), Bath Pig Co. chorizo, field mushrooms, roasted red onions, our fresh tomato sauce and mozzarella. Topped with shaved Dorset air dried pork loin from award winning Capreolus of Dorset. (£13.50)


Launched first in Bristol by husband and wife team Richard and Nikki Cooper, one can see that they have succeeded in including that homely vibe in their chain of ‘stables’ across the UK. A perfect venue for dinner with friends or a cheeky date-drink-food combo!

Verdict: 8 / 10
