Gilroy is a character of note. Good entertainment,value for money for any corperate event. Must book an UBER because you are going to get drunk

Gilroys has excellent music and a good menu to choose from. It is a good party vibe for a Sunday afternoon.

Visited Gilroys on Mother's day with a group of 12+. Very busy so food took almost an hour to be served. Pork belly and mash, and pies were good. My son enjoyed the spaghetti and mince.
