We are a group of ladies who eat out on a regular basis. There were 6 of us today. The drinks service was really fast and the food so slow I offered to go and cook for the chef. From the menu there were only 3 options chosen. I am not sure if the slow service is deliberate, to encourage additional drinks orders. The service was a bit confused with all the waiting staff waiting on all the tables of which there were a few. However, you were not quite sure who you should deal with. At times the service interaction appeared a bit loose and flippant. The visit was disappointing.

The bar at Giles is a great place to get together for a few drinks and a chat. One can order light meals to snack on while still socializing.

Giles is a must if you are in "The Parks" after work for drinks and a chat. A really pleasant crowd and some good times to be had.

It was a lovely evening of fun and banter. The bar area is inviting and pleasant. The crowd is polite and even though there is lots of alcohol flowing - it does not feel out of control.
We did not eat a lot - just some snacks but, they were tasty.

I enjoy a few drinks here its got a great atmosphere and a good vibe about it. The food is pretty good as well so after a few drinks don't be shy to venture through to the restaurant and grab a bite.
