Ate here on a Thursday night and thought it would be quiet, but there was a really good atmosphere and both the tables and bar were busy. We opted for tapas and chose 7 dishes between the two of us. This was just about right. Good choice of dishes and good quality. Friendly service Lovely location and I would love... More

After reading reviews on TA decided to try for an early dinner. Difficult to find but lovely location tucked off the main street. On entering still wasn't sure and spent a little while working out what was on offer to eat. Lucky for us we were able to order...they were fully booked from 6pm. The fish lasagna and chicken and...

A quiet, wet and cold Monday evening was cheered and warmed up by Gilbies. We had a warm cheery welcome and the menus were explained to us efficiently. Our food was piping hot and nicely presented. I would however have liked more tomatoes in my Mediterranean veg, and the Aubergine needed a bit more cooking. Big choice of interesting dishes... More

Still slagging off the owner - even when promising not to come back......People really should get therapy for this sort of ranting diatribe. More

I have been many times and enjoyed Tapas and drinks. BUT tonight tried a meal, was awful, tasteless and poor quality. Tables so close couldn't move. Jugs of cocktails at £12 had very little/no alcohol in them. Left very disappointed.

We were taken here by local friends who have been many times. The staff, all very friendly young girls, helped with gluten-free tapas choices (pleased to say there was plenty of choice) and brought extra dishes to the table when we found we needed second helpings. It's a popular place and we had booked, but there was no pressure to... More
