We were staying at the NOVOTEL next door but because of the lack of selection on the menu and previous average experience, we walked up to this pub.
Ambience ok, service very good and certainly very popular. This is a grill bar and the meals were ok but don't expect fine dining. Everything was quick and efficient and the final bill even with 8 drinks was very, very reasonable but this really is pub fare and you shouldn't expect anything else.

We used to visit the John Gilbert very regularly but we were very disappointed with the drop in standards in all areas and have not visited for some time. However, we have visited recently and understand there is a new manager and WOW what a turnaround. Very clean, sweet smelling pub with excellent food, new outside tables and stunning hanging baskets and tubs full of beautiful colourful flowers. The staff are friendly and helpful. This pub is well worth a visit and we will be returning and recommending it to friends.

Visited this place on 17th August 14. Thought we would have the Sunday Carvery.
Went for the food, Staff cuts the meat, puts it on the plate and Passes the plate to another member of Staff, who ask you what Veggies you want.My Husband had no Mash Potatoes, so he got just 3 very small Roast Potatoes and 3 small Portions of Veg, and watery Gravy on top.
I got my meat and mash and 3 small Roast Potatoes,
But is'nt a Carvery, You are given the Meat and you are left to put the rest on your plate yourself, That is what happens at all other Carvery I have been to.
The Staff were fine, but the way the Carvery is not. The price was over £7.00. Terrible not happy and won't be going back.

Excellent pub just next door to our hotel, food was reasonably priced, and service was superb, with staff happy to answer any questions regarding allergies etc. Drinks were good value as well as the cake and coffee offer which was a bit of a bargain!

Took my partner here for Sunday lunch a couple of times, food above average and good portions, staff efficient but tended to have a "corporate" smile, apart from one who went out of her way to ask if everything was ok. would recommend for the older (30+) you will not find chavs or chavetts, (at least not the 3 times ive been there) overall good place to eat.
