The best Sunday lunch I've ever had!

The absolute best Sunday lunch I've ever had! (Apart from my Mums) Wonderful, attentive service, great surroundings and by far some of the best food I've tasted for a while. Bursting with flavour, beautifully presented and felt the most perfect level of "full" afterwards you would think it... read more

Once seated we had to ask for the waitress to take our drinks order and for table bread. Mains came out and had to wait 5minutes for the vegetables after asking, the waitress/kitchen must have forgotten - once veg arrive there was not enough to serve all 6 adults and had to ask for extra. The starters were ok, the... More

Bursting with flavour, beautifully presented and felt the most perfect level of "full" afterwards you would think it would've been measured! Worth every penny and would recommend without hesitation.

On Wednesday we had a group of Business Men have lunch at The Grey Lady, and it was the first time we had visited this place.

Only wanted coffee and cake and as we have tried other places in Newtown Linford thought we would give this a try. The coffees were very good, lovely flavour and strong enough to make my hubby happy. They do lovely little cakes for two and they are indeed just a nice size for two people to share. We had the... More

This was - and please excuse the cliche - just what it said on the tin. A taste of what they do - no choice but FABULOUS food. Personally I didn't like the Pea and horseradish velouté but I appreciated the look and the trial - many in my party loved it! (You should never judge a place according to... More

We celebrated my mother in law's birthday at the Grey Lady the other day and all enjoyed our meal. Since I was last here it has been revamped and looks great. We all enjoyed the food, drink, ambience. the staff were great. Our party had an age range of over 80 years and no one was disappointed. We hope to... More

We took the opportunity to dine here as our two mini people in the family (aged 8 and 11) had started to show an interest in fine dining and the offer of the midweek 5 course taster menu seemed very good value for money. We had already dined here previously so knew the setting and general quality was very good.... More

My then civil partner and I converted our CP to a marriage recently and chose the Grey Lady to mark the occasion with family and close friends. We booked the private dining room for 11 and really could not have had a better experience. The vegetarians in the party were particularly well catered for and there was high praise indeed... More

Having been to Gibsons Grey Lady once before and been thoroughly impressed, this was the only place I wanted to book for my 40th birthday celebrations and I was not disappointed. The surroundings are picturesque, the restaurant is bright, airy & well presented. There were 12 in our party, we had a room to ourselves, which was perfect. The food... More
