Had enjoyable and filling lunch with something for everyone. Wide selection to suit varying appetites and outdoors grill in sheltered area. Friendly service and not long to wait - we seemed to have picked a quieter time I think.

Whenever we visit Hereford we go to Gilbie's for lunch...its a must. In fine weather sitting outside is lovely in their courtyard. We have never had a bad meal or drink there and you get plenty for your money.

Description
Tucked away from the hustle and bustle in a picturesque courtyard overlooked by St. Peter's church spire. Here is, quite simply, the only place to visit if it is a continental flavour that you are looking for. Where else in this little market town could you sit outside under the canopy of a huge grapevine and enjoy a pitcher of Europe's finest beer or lager? Here is an ideal spot to relax and contemplate life whilst sipping one of the worlds many varieties of wine.
