The Stable pizza place – Whitechapel Rd E1

It’s been a fortnight of team lunches, after-work drinks and altogether much merriment. Seems like Spring’s on the way. And to celebrate Lottie’s birthday today we wandered over to the newly opened Stable on Whitechapel Road for a cheeky lunchtime cider and pizza.

 

The Stable is a new chain across the UK that takes pride in “best quality food” and a “keen interest in cider”. With over 80 ciders to choose from at this, the first branch in London, they’re not kidding.

Lunch and pizza menus

Most pizzas are £11.00 – £13.00 but there’s a lunchtime offer between 12-3pm on weekdays whereby pizzas and wraps are only £6.50.

Many ciders to choose from …and other drinks

 

There’s an extensive choice of both ciders and perries – on tap and bottled – at the bar. With such a wide choice it’s probably best to ‘try before you buy’. It’s a fiver for a pint or £2.50 for a half. I ordered a West Country Gold @ £2.50 (nice but too sweet for me, so I moved on to Devon Gold).

The birthday girl having a taster or two… it’s a big decision

 

Sticking with the West Country theme, I also ordered a West Country salad which read as though it was pretty exciting on the menu – “crabmeat infused with red chilli, roasted red peppers, avocado…with a lemon creme fraiche dressing” – but paled into insignificance when the flat, stonebaked pizzas arrived at our table.

Pizza – the one with field mushrooms and roasted red peppers @ £6.50

And another with dried pork loin

 

The verdict: It’s newly opened so it’s got the novelty factor for now. The industrial style space is pleasing, as is the choice of ciders. While the pizzas are really good, there are other good pizza places nearby (like Pizza Union) that serve freshly made, stonebaked pizza (much cheaper too). Worth visiting at lunchtime for the £6.50 pizza offer though.
