Sometimes a pizza is what is needed to hit the hunger spot and satisfy that craving that won’t go away. Pizza come in all shapes and sizes. I love homemade ones, where healthier toppings can be used if desired. Sometimes though a full on cheesy (vegan or vegetarian) pizza is the best. That’s how Ruth and I felt one lunchtime, pizza cravings.
The Stable opened at the end of last year in Birmingham a few footsteps from New Street Station on John Bright Street. I visited it in December and enjoyed their mix of cider and pizza in an exposed brickwork space with openness and a relaxed funky vibe.
They like to personalise the menus to cater for the local area or city they land in, so you find names of pizzas like ‘The Bull Ring Boar’ ‘The James Brindley’ ‘ The Longhorn Jim’ and ‘The Perry Barr-Baa.
Serving gourmet pizzas, pies and cider The Stable makes all pizzas from scratch, from the sourdough to the sauces.
An added bonus is the indulgent Garlic Bread that oozes garlic and parsley butter with a freshly baked flavour and is a must when visiting with any pizza.
So try The James Brindley, (£10.50) a locally inspired pizza that is an indulgent slice of heaven. Take herb roasted potatoes, Fowlers Forest Blue cheese, roasted Spanish onions, English Spinach, tomato sauce and mozzarella and you have a feast of an indulgent kind.
The herb roasted potatoes, working with the heavenly blue cheesy texture with a dabble of spinach and red onion providing the salad crunch and colour contrast to the silky cheese.
A filling and well made pizza with a good sourdough texture.

My previous review of The Stable:
The Stable, Unit 1, Orion, 115 John Bright Street, Birmingham, B1 1BE.
Since my previous review The Stable have introduced a Vegan and dairy free pizza as well as gluten free (NGI ) options.
I ate my pizza washed down with a local Sadlers Ale beer, but The Stable also have over 80 ciders on offer plus a good wine list.
Ruth ordered the same pizza with a large glass of Sauvignon Blanc.
We paid for our food and drinks in full.
