We were given a voucher for £80 for this restaurant. Frankly, it was not worth the bother of getting there. A rather dowdy dining room needed a coat of paint, but we had two courses. Goats cheese in filo pastry has too much pastry. My soya sauce duck shreds was over spiced. My wife had a filet of bass, but... More

We visited the restaurant on the 5th of June to celebrate a Golden Wedding anniversary and it was a poor experience. My prawn cocktail arrived with no sauce and very small saver prawns and a poor salad. My main meal of roast beef was also of poor quality - the roast potatoes tasted like they had been re- fried from... More

Have visited the Grims Dyke Hotel many times over the years as it was always a source of old fashioned service and good food however since changing hands (now Best Western) things have slipped. We went on a Sunday evening and had a drink in the bar before eating. The bar was empty and soulless and somehow all the seating... More

I have always been a big fan of a traditional afternoon tea however usually find by the time you have ploughed through the sandwiches and scones, you never have enough room for cake (the most important part of course!). Grimsdyke has found the solution to this problem by doing an extremely reasonably priced afternoon tea with just scones and cakes!... More

The restaurant was full of 'Ladies who Lunch'. Very old fashioned architecture, service and food....Not a bad thing. We had a pleasant time and enjoyed ourselves. The menu was simple and the dishes not very memorable, but that is perhaps all that is required when out for natter with friends.

Didn't expect it but everything was good. Food was nice, service was good and they serve Guinness in the bar, so what more could one ask for. It was Sunday evening so a little quiet and lacking ambiance, but who cares.

It's a beautiful setting with elegant service . We had two three course meals. Both had steaks, both slightly overlooked, and not well seasoned. Food was not as elegant as the setting or service. ( came with huge badly cooked tomato, an onion rings, felt like I was in a beefeater ) could be more thoughtful . Steak much better... More

I have used Gilbert's restaurant at the Grims Dyke many times and the service and quality of the cuisine is consistent. Only a discerning Chef could find issues with any aspect of this restaurant from a customer's perspective. There is also an automated piano which performs in the background. One thing which I like is the fresh bread selection which... More

We just had to give Gilbert's a mention, my wife and I have been to this restaurant on many occasions and every time the meals have been outstanding, as well as the ever helpful, attentive staff and the elegant dining room. If you stay at the hotel overnight their delicious cooked breakfast the following morning is definitely something to look... More
