Stable Pizza, 16-18 Whitechapel Road, E1 1EW

On a rather murky Monday night, Stable Pizza glows like a beacon, thanks to rather gorgeous lighting and interiors, practically making me want to bang on the doors shouting “Sanctuary”.

No need, they’re open and we’re given a warm welcome. It’s cavernous and cleverly designed with an open area at the front, leading to a more restaurant like area at the back. We are already hopeful as to what’s to come, and we hunker down over our menus.

Unusually abstemious we forego alcohol on this school night (a shame really as Stable Pizza famous for their large array of ciders on offer, including a ‘flight’ of three different ciders).

And so to the food. The Silver Fox rather wisely orders the Aldgate Angler, and is presented with one of the best pizzas we’ve had outside of Italy. The toppings are munificent in stature and a flavour combination of smoked mackerel and smoked salmon leaves our tastebuds tingling for more.

My pie of spiced butternut squash, goat’s cheese and spinach is warming and filling, only improved by a generous portion of plum chutney which contrasts the creaminess of the squash and cheese. Served alongside a decent portion of enormous potato wedges, I am quickly sated.

I coquettishly turned down pudding but The Silver Fox ploughed into a ginormous hot chocolate topped with marshmallows, chocolate sprinkles, drops AND sauce, with a quivering pile of crumble covering the whipped cream. He looked like a schoolboy on hearing the tuck shop shutters opening. The whole incident took decades off him.

This place is a bit of a gift for Whitechapel and we’ll definitely be back. It’s a good venue for larger parties too because of the sheer space.

Service was charm personified throughout and the bill proved excellent value for money, making a weeknight supper out for two accessible for around £30 all in.
