THE STABLE – A Cathedral to Cider and Pizza – Opens in Plymouth this Easter Weekend

The Stable PlymouthDoors Open on the evening of Thursday 2nd April 2015

The Stable, a cathedral to cider and pizza, opens in Plymouth this Easter Weekend, creating 20 new jobs and bringing a delicious range of freshly cooked pizza, based on local ingredients, and a range of over 80 ciders to the Devon city. The new restaurant is located in Plymouth’s Sutton Harbour and is the eighth location for The Stable – and its first in Devon.

The Stable is the brainchild of Richard and Nikki Cooper, and Richard’s brother Andy Briggs. The concept started life when Richard and Nikki bought The Bull Hotel in Bridport and decided to convert an old stable adjacent to the property into a pizza and cider restaurant. Their ethos remains unchanged – a commitment to the best quality, local ingredients, interesting and unusual topping combinations and a range of ciders that, quite frankly, there aren’t enough days in the year to sample. Following the success of that first restaurant, the couple have since opened six more in locations including Bath, Bristol, Newquay, Falmouth, Weymouth and Poole

Nikki Cooper said: “The team have been working really hard to finish The Stable in time for Easter. It’s a beautiful historical building with magnificent views over the harbour. It offers a great outside dining area and a roof terrace – so we’re hoping the sun will be out in force over the Easter weekend and that customers will head to Sutton Harbour for the best pizza in Devon. We know that our range of great toppings, including Ticklemore Devon Blue Cheese and pork from pigs reared from the Primrose Herd, combined with a range of ciders from Devon and other counties and countries, will tickle the tastebuds of the good people of Plymouth and beyond.”

The waterside venue will host regular music nights and the popular Tuck in Tuesday will also be starting from 7 April – with selected pizzas, side salad and a drink for only £10. The Stable is famous for naming some of its handmade pizzas after local historical figures or places of interest and the Plymouth site is no exception. Pizzas on offer include:

The Sir Francis Drake

Herb roasted potato, Ticklemore Devon blue cheese, roasted Spanish onions, English spinach, our fresh tomato sauce and mozzarella for just £10.50

The Barbican Blaster

Spicy local chopped pork, Naga chillies, garlic, red onion, basil leaves, mushrooms, our fresh tomato sauce and mozzarella, for just £11.00.
