The G&D was selected by our friends on the basis of a third-party recommendation. From the outside the G&D looks just like any other backstreet pub. You walk into the public bar and then into the restaurant area, which is of an informal bistro style.
Other than it being boisterously noisy (which was a bit of a problem for me, in my 60's) it is hard to find fault with this place. The pre-food bread was imaginative and the food was good. In contrast to eating out in Belgium where I work, it was refreshing to have change from 100 quid for a 3-course meal and drinks. The menu is not extensive but quite adequate. The service was attentive without being over-fussy. It's not the sort of place you would go for a quiet romantic meal, but that's not what this place is about, or do they do special themed nights?

Thankyou so much for the review it is greatly appreciated and always a pleasure to read when our customers have enjoyed themselves. Apologises for the noise, this cannot always be controlled so for that we are sorry. However on your next visit you can request we seat you at a quieter table, we would be more than happy to accommodate you for this so that to have a more enjoyable evening with us. But thankyou so much for all your kind comments they will be noted and passed on to the other staff members. As for special themed evenings, Valentine's day here is always very romantic and relaxed without being too noisy as well. I would say Valentine's day is probably our most quietest of noise level evenings we have, but is always fully booked very quickly. We do have other special event days like New Year's Eve, Christmas Eve, Mothers Day, Fathers Day, Halloween, but as you can imagine if very busy noise levels can rise so for this I can only apologise in advance if you are to pop in and visit us again. But as already stated thankyou so much for your kind comments they are greatly appreciated and we look forward to your return very soon. Many thanks again.
