Last weekend my daughter and her husband and my six-year-old grandson took my wife and me to The Stables, a restaurant near our home. The company was great of course but I must pay full tribute to the restaurant’s service. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome and were quickly shown to our table. The young waiter who looked after us for the evening was perfect – friendly, helpful and efficient.
We never felt rushed when we took a bit of time to eventually settle on our choice of food. He was quick to bring us drinks and, when we wanted a second round, he was right at the table to take our order. He did all this with a smile and, although he was busy, never seemed rushed.
Although this is a fairly local restaurant to our home, it is not one we have thought of using in the past. We will not make that mistake in the future. We’re already planning our next visit. If you ever find yourself near Kirkintilloch, perhaps using the Forth & Clyde canal towpath, check out The Stables.
