Stableyard Restaurant, BroadwindsorFrom Linda at The Stableyard Restaurant:

After a few rather challenging first months of 2021, The Stableyard Restaurant has taken the decision to open the outside eating and takeaways a little later than the 12th of April.
Due to the ever changing English weather, and the financial implications of a few rainy days in April may bring for dining outside we are going to open outside and takeaways on Wednesday 5th May, 11am – 3pm. We will be open for hot and cold drinks, yummy cakes and slices, sandwiches and toasties.
Then the restaurant will fully open on Tuesday 18th May 9.30am (as long as the Government allows)
I know that you are all looking forward to getting back out and myself and staff are looking forward to welcoming you back to the Stableyard Restaurant.
