SquareMeal Review of Fire Stables

An early exponent of the gastropub ethos, Fire Stables took the area by storm more than a decade ago and still has plenty of supporters. There’s a big bar with Young’s Bitter and Bombardier on tap, and an equally impressive wine list full of vintages that suit the moneyed inhabitants of Wimbledon Village. Ladies who lunch and gents who no longer need to work populate the premises during the day; at night, a slightly younger crowd joins them. Food from the open kitchen is less ground-breaking than it once seemed to be, but the likes of beef carpaccio with olive tapenade and tomato crisp, or seared salmon with crayfish and watercress salad, are still crowd pleasers: properly cooked, nicely presented and, for the target market, just the ticket.

I have been visiting The Fire Stables in Wimbledon Village since it first opened a number of years ago because the service is efficient and helpful, they know about the menu and the food is prepared and cooked at an open kitchen at the entrance of the pub. The menu is exactly what a good menu should be, precise, appetizing and not overwhelming. Every dish is fresh and deliciously cooked. The dining area looks onto a garden at the back of the pub and is spacious and light. In fact, there isn't anything I can think of that needs altering, apart from the prices which are not cheap, but the food is well worth the money. I would highly recommend either lunch or dinner at The Fire Stables for good value and a great meal every time. Oonagh McGrath Wimbledon
