“Great seasonal food and really friendly staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013

I've been to Gascoyne Place several times and is always a favourite for bithday meals out. The staff are always really friendly, the atmosphere is great and the food is fantastic. They always have great seasonal food and at a reasonable price.

“Great food, fun atmosphere and excellent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2013

I booked our Work Christmas Lunch here for 36 of us and right from the initial enquiry I found the customer service to be outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble, which was reassuring since organising a meal for so many people can be a nightmare. Even when meal choices and numbers of attendees were changing right at the last minute, no matter who I dealt with at the restaurant, the reaction was always fast, sympathetic and efficient. They were especially helpful with any dietary requirements.

On the day of the lunch the staff were fantastic. It's not easy to serve 36 loud people who aren't listening to what food has been brought out and most of whom have forgotten what they'd ordered! I'd have to say that the service was outstanding.

The food was very well received by the group; it was well presented, very tasty and excellent value for money too.

All in all, I highly recommend Gascoyne Place and would happily visit again, for dinner and/or drinks.

“Fantastic food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

We went here for my Dad's 50th. It was very quiet, but the staff were friendly and helpful, so it didn't feel dead.
The food was fantastic, and great value for the quality. The service was excellent too, and really made my dad's birthday.

“Good food and good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

Enjoyed a very good lunch on Saturday 5th January. The service was superb, very friendly and efficient staff - as most other reviewers have commented upon.

The food was also of a high standard, particularly the delicious hot salmon starter and the desserts were also delicious - chocolate creme brulee and cardamon shortbread was superb.

“Company meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

I organised a company meal for 15 (for Christmas) recently. The staff were all courteous and polite. the food was excellent and the range of drinks on offer was superb. We were seated in the 'snug' next to the bar, which meant that we were in our own private area yet not entirely secluded and tucked away. The atmosphere in the bar was busy and jovial. Although they seemed busy (there were several other groups dining) all our food arrived promptly and there was always someone on hand if required. Overall, a stylish, comfortable establishment, great food and great staff.
