Gilbey's Restaurant in Bournemouth is situated in the Liston Hotel which is two minutes from the Cliff Top Gardens in Boscombe Spa. The large open restaurant with polished oak floor and wall murals of Edwardian days on the pier compliments the cosy bar and entrance hall with original features dating back to the turn of the century. Our food is modern English with some influences from the rest of the World.

We went to Gilbey's for Father's Day Sunday lunch. We received a friendly welcome and were seated in the bar to wait for our table, where we were served drinks and then perused the menu. There was a special Father's Day set menu; lots of choice, and it all looked delicious. The decor is Edwardian and it was a very... More

This time for Sunday lunch. It's high end. As usual we were warmly welcomed. The service was excellent and the food was extremely tasty, modern twists and beautiful flavours without being pretentious. I was surprised how far above a 'very good' pub roast this was. Took friends who all enjoyed it very much. Fair value for the courses on offer.

The food I had during my stay at the Liston was gorgeous. Plenty of choice for breakfast and the three course evening meal was absolutely spot on. Portions of a good size and everything home cooked. Brilliant.
