My husband and I booked an overnight stay with dinner for our anniversary and had a really lovely time. The meal was very nice and every single member of staff was very helpful and friendly. The rooms were spotless and very modern and comfortable. Service was great and everyone made you feel at home. Can't wait to go back.

This was our second visit to this restaurant. This time it was for Mothers Day,we a lovely lunch, everything was excellent,staff very friendly & efficient, food was cooked to perfection. We had the Mothers Day 3 course set menu at £19.99 each, which was great value and a good choice of dishes on each course, will definitely be back.

We received a warm welcome at the Gailes and were impressed with just about everything. Our room had a massive King size bed, we had a lovely view from our window, the room was perfect for our needs. Dinner was lovely, only thing i'd say could be improved was the dessert on the chefs menu, the ice cream was nice... More
