We were lucky enough to have a short holiday in Cornwall during the recent heatwave which was glorious. There is nothing like the wind swept Cornish beaches in good weather. As usual we self-catered, not only because it’s easier and takes away a lot of stress, but we generally prefer to eat home cooked food! We stayed in Kingsand, a wonderful traditional Cornish fishing village on the Rame peninsula – it’s just like the popular tourist destinations of Port Isaac or Megavissey but a bit less touristy – I’d really recommend it as a great holiday destination. Since it’s on a peninsula it’s actually a long drive from Plymouth, despite being fairly close as the crow flies, you avoid a lot of the big summer crowds. On one day we took the ferry to Plymouth, not only for the transport but also to enjoy the ride.
As we were out for the day we’d done some prior research on possible lunch destinations, not only allergy-friendly but also dog friendly as Luna our Cavapoo was on holiday with us too. Top of the google search for dog friendly restaurants in Plymouth was The Stable. Now, we’ve thought of trying out The stable before as we have a local one to us, but somehow have never got round to it. We thoroughly checked the allergen menu online and it looked like a good option.
It was actually a super allergy-friendly meal – we had a vegan garlic bread to start which was very tasty. This was followed by a meaty pizza with vegan cheese for Big S, a Hawaiian pizza with no cheese for Little S, and a veggie option for me. All were good and tasty, although the Hawaiian with no cheese was a little dry so we’d ask for extra tomato sauce next time. The waiter took time and care with our order, coming back to check a on options a couple of times and we felt comfortable eating there.
So, if you’re out and about and come across a branch of The Stable I’d say it would definitely be worth giving it a go. There are plenty of vegan options, an entire gluten-free menu and there appear to be no peanuts on the menu, only sesame on the local Plymouth pizza, and the only nuts are may contain on the pudding menu.
