We had a 40th party meal at the Gladstone on the 6th November 2015

Both leading upto, and on the day, the staff were excellent at ensuring the meal for 22 guests went well. They put the tables all joining together so that we were all sat on opposite sides, facing each other...they altered the layout of the restaurant to ensure that it was the best that could be... read more

I had lunch here with a friend and was amazed at the extensive lunchtime menu. Although not vegetarian I opted for the veggie lasagne - it was huge - served with salad leaves and tiny tomatoes. It was a wise choice, absolutely delicious. A nice touch was a bottle of tap water on all the tabls. My G&T, lunch and... More

I visited here with friends for Sunday lunch and I can honestly say it was the best roast dinner I have had in such a long time! Huge portions, amazing pork and crackling, crispy roast potatoes, huge Yorkshire pudding and extra gravy!! Wow! For pudding I had the sticky toffee pudding, which was absolute heaven! All homemade, exceptional service and... More

I never leave reviews but this was THE tastiest roast pork and crackling I have ever had, followed by chocolate brownie ice cream and chocolate sauce. Highly recommend. Excellent service too! Tori

Excellent pub grub - my Chicken Burger included a huge side of onion rings - and unusual but very tasty combination. The Starter of pate was excellent also. Pleasant and attentive service and the price for the quality was great. Will visit again.

We enjoyed a celebration family lunch for eight, including two children. Though no childrens' menu as such, the staff adapted dishes well for our two. Real ales, ciders and lagers completed the choice for us.

Good service, friendly staff, friendly atmosphere, good food if you feel like it either in the restaurant or bar area, and a good outdoor seating area. Good for business or social lunch, or for evening drink or meal.

I had a group meal here at Christmas and was very impressed. I have been praising it since and took my husband along on the strength of this. Sadly The Gladstone did not live up to expectations. The sausages appeared to be double cooked and were very crispy and dry. There were masses of onions with them and a very... More

We had a business meal for 16 here before Christmas which was really good, everyone enjoyed their food and the atmosphere. I have lunch here often and it has always delivered. Good choice of beers, friendly staff, good atmosphere and great food. I highly recommend a visit.
