Went recently on a Saturday night to celebrate a birthday. Main reason for going was the chef was able to cater for people with peanut allergy. Party of 6 and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the food. BYOB and on website it advertises £1 to open a beer bottle but we were charged £2 as it was a large... read more

Three of us went for lunch during work, was very surprised at how Quick service was considering we only had 1 hour, we were back at work in time which wAs really good. Staff prompt and efficient. Dining area felt a little small and quite close to other tables for people trying to get past but apart from that it... More

Food here was ok, nothing to write home about, it looked good on the menu though. But the waitresses were so rude! From the minute we got in we got the distinct impression they were trying to kick us out. We arrived at 9 and were informed "we close at 10:30", I think that's plenty time to get fed but... More

What a find this place is. Excellent choice of dishes, it took us ages to decide what we wanted because there were so many appealing options. I can imagine it's a lovely cosy place to go on a cold day when their log burner is lit. It's quirky inside and their waitress was very friendly and patient with our kids.... More

This is definitely our go to restaurant when we are looking for a good meal. This trip I went with my daughter and we had a great evening. The menu is always creative and the food is fantastic! The service is great too!

I could rave about the lamb burger from Gabe's for days it's hands down the best burger I've ever had. This was my second trip to Gabe's and it was just as good as the first time. My friends and I all got a starter, main, dessert, coffee and soft drink for £19 each. The value for money is amazing... More
