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.

If you want fresh home cooked beautifully presented food, served by a friendly team you will find it at Gilbeys Restaraunt. Friday and Sunday lunches provide a specials menu that is a real treat at a reasonable cost. Gilbeys is licensed so a good glass of wine or something else is available. This is a family hotel and restaurant so... More
