I went along to Gasworks thinking this is going to be disappointing and when we got there our table had been given to another group, but we were placed elsewhere quickly. This is a pub and to think this will be a gourmet delight is stupid but if you go along thinking not bad pub grub you will be OK. Plently of choice and large portions and we all enjoyed what we had and the service was quick with no personality.

I quite enjoyed this one! Our food was nice - I had the pancakes and the only thing i missed was a little bit of fresh fruit or berries on top of the stack. Lazy Saturday - Lazy Place - time didn't matter. I though a good spot to sit in the sunshine. Nothing wrong with the service either. Great parking so just drop in and chill - with the weekend paper.

Our steaks were not cooked to our requirements and when we complained we were told that's how they come. Very poor service, uninterested and stressed staff, we will not be returning.

We love the atmosphere at Gasworks & have had some nice meals there, it does what it says on the tin so don't go there expecting a la carte, it is good pub food and no more.
If we had to criticize it we would say that they need to get the family/adults approach right....if you go to a pub/restaurant in Europe, there is always a separate section for adults only so that there is something for everyone. Sadly there are too many people who think its fine for their offspring to run around a restaurant or shout/scream and jump up and down on the seats and the other diners should just put up with it. This has happened to us twice in Gasworks now, indeed the Manager had to tell the first family to sort their kids out or leave because people were complaining. hopefully next time we go there will be a space for couples to enjoy an afterword meal/drink together and unwind.

I've been here twice recently. The first time was in September and given that the restaurant had a good reputation, I was a bit disappointed in the food. We went back, hoping for better. I had the ribs which should fall of the bone but definitely didn't. It took almost three quarters of an hour for our lunch to come - far too slow. I won't be in a hurry to go back, given we have to go out our way to eat there
