I love the Stables. All the staff are friendly and helpful and the place has a real family atmosphere. None of the Auditoriums are large so each performance feels really intimate. I would definately reccommend it

Attended on Wednesday 4th April, Limehouse Lizzie, excellent band, however sound quality was not good, singers voice was muffled throughout, disappointing, other attendees were saying much the same so it was not just me!

This venue is fantastic, have visited many many times and keep returning as this place has a relaxed atmosphere, chilled vibe, and any seat you get is a good seat as the place is compact. A fantastic night out

Saw the Mods. Great night in a great intimate venue. Plenty of free car parking. A great bar serving plenty of variety of beers and spirits.

I went to see Matt Cardle here and found the place excellent though I was worried walking up Stockwell Lane to it as there is no lighting really. Great clean venue inside. Good seats in the theatre.
