Midweek, so very quiet. Service was excellent. Food was okay. Gilbies must be doing something right, it's seen quite a few other local restaurants open & close during its existence.

We had an exceptionally delicious lunch. I had tender beef, but pork or lamb looked good too with plenty of varied veg and gravy. Excellent service from well-trained staff and very good wines as well.

You order at the food bar and then the food is brought to your table. The food, service and drinks are always good at Gilbies.

Have visited many times and am almost a regular. The food is delicious, the service is always great with very friendly staff and it's very reasonable prices too. I often have the duck and the gilbies potatoes (my favourite) which is always divine. Great atmosphere...More

Lovely little hidden-away courtyard to eat out at - food very good - inside ambiance could do with something to lift it during the day

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.
