Wonderful little gem of a restaurant in an historic building surrounded by beautiful gardens: whether you are looking for a place to impress your prospective business partners or your romantic date, this off the track restaurant is the ideal place. Best fish and chips I have ever eaten and afternoon tea is something special indeed. Staff is professional and friendly.... More

We've been lunching at the Grimsdyke for the last 6 years and and have had an excellent experience every time - welcome, ambience, cuisine and service. The £12.95 lunch menu is superb value, though it does tempt you to indulge in the wines. Today was wild mushrooms in a cream and wine sauce followed by the Grimsdykes classic confit duck;... More

The good points first - excellent service and friendly staff. Now the dinner; a delightful wine - Gavi di Gavi. Robust and full of character. Highly recommended. The cured salmon with beetroot salad and salmon mousse. Lovely. The Sea Bream; fine. Unfortunately let down by two chicken parfaits that looked like melted grey ice cream. Very little taste so a...

First I would like to congratulate whoever trained the staff, and the staff themselves as the service really couldn't have been better. If a glass of water was empty it was almost immediately refilled, they checked every course was satisfactory, and all of this without interrupting a single conversation. Excellent. Value for money is superb if you choose 2 dishes... More

Went here for afternoon tea for a friends birthday. We were very disappointed, the scones were stodgy and huge , the cakes were ok but not fresh , the sandwiches were best but just piled haphazard.y on the plates . The teas were lovely as were the staff. Such a shame as it a lovely place to sit and enjoy... More

Food was delightful: chicken liver parfait to start; Steak and large chips; duck and potato (my potato could have been cooked more - probably chance, yours or mine on another occasion might be just right). The summer pudding was just right, as I wanted fruit, so fed up with all sugar desserts. Service was smiling and obliging, two friendly and... More

A birthday treat cream tea, the setting, sandwiches, scones with cream and jam, creme brulee, tea and coffee were all good. The other items were not so good, very dry eclair and tasteless tartlette and jelly we tried them but then left them. As we didn't really have much room for them in any event, it fortunately didn't spoil our... More

Stayed at the Grimsdyke hotel for a special occasion and enjoyed a lovely meal in Gilbert's restaurant. Service excellent and the choice of dishes very varied. Great value for the price. Will go again as live quite local.
