Yet again a memorable evening at Gilbeys, Liston hotel. Diane and her team put on a brilliant New Years Eve dinner dance. The chef must be congratulated on the superb food which was beautifully presented. The staff were friendly and worked hard to keep us in food and drink. Lovely evening.

We selected Gilbeys at the Liston Hotel for our pre-Christmas group meal on recommendation. We were not disappointed. From the initial contact with Diane Gilby, the family support whilst she was away to the meal itself; the experience was a really good one. Menu choices were flexible but catered for different tastes and requirements. It is not that usual to... More

Super meal again last week. Our group meet monthly at a different location in the area and everyone loves going to Gilbeys because the quality of the meal is always so good. They now serve a two course lunch on Friday's as well as Sunday lunch; can't wait to enjoy one of those. Thank you.

The food and service was fantastic and with some parking outside the hotel and in the street, made for a pleasant afternoon. We'll be back when next in Bournemouth. Also, many ingredients are grown in their own garden.

I have been meaning to try Gilbey's for Sunday lunch for a while and finally got round to it this weekend. I should definitely have gone sooner! The food and service was fantastic with nothing too much trouble for the staff.

The themed evening was a 4 course meal accompanied with fine wines from Bordeaux. It was excellent. The atmosphere is always convivial and welcoming and the glass of Dulong Cremant Rose on arrival got the evening off to a good start. The four courses were expertly cooked with excellent presentation. Every mouthful was delicious. The accompanying wines complemented the food... More
