The Stable is situated in a tiny little road running alongside the cathedral grounds, with beautiful historic buildings on either side. Winchester is steeped in history as it is but this particular area is so quiet and peaceful that it's like being transported back in time.
At our last visit, we were seated upstairs, where there are huge windows allowing light to flood in. Downstairs is a little more atmospheric. Lovely for creating an intimate atmosphere, not so great for taking photos. It's like people don't buy buildings with the sole purpose of optimum food photography opportunities! Low light levels aside, the candles everywhere did form a nice homely feeling and softened what could otherwise be quite harsh decor with long wooden benches and tables.
