Ive found out how to resize tables so they dont take up the full page width (though to be honest i

(or perhaps more) tables juxtaposed horizontally. Is there a way to align tables horizontally 
(without resorting to frames, which i tend to find are a right pain in the proverbials)?
Im currently using version build 1:5.2.2-0ubuntu2.1

If you're set on avoiding frames, this won't help, but to be honest I'd do it with each table in a separate frame. If you set the width and height of the frame to the minimum allowed and tick the "AutoSize" box for each, it will automatically adjust to the size of the table. Then anchor and position the frames as required.

There will be a blank paragraph after the table, which prevents the height of the frame from being reduced to only just fit the table. That can be removed by placing the cursor in the bottom right cell of the table and pressing Ctrl+Shift+Del.

By default, frames have a border and padding between the outside of the frame and its contents. You might want to remove those for this purpose.

Once one frame is set up as needed, it might be easier to copy and paste that as required rather than adding new frames and reformatting them.
