“Sensational Surprise”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

Dropped in at Gilberts for lunch driving from Sydney to Canberra on way home to Adelaide with family, wife 2 kids age 10 and 14 (2 fussy eaters). Just loved the menu options, so different from your normal cafe restaurant, great healthy, fresh tasty, different food - how wonderful to go off the Hume, thankyou we avoided another roadhouse / fast food joint. At Gilbert's the service was polite. The atmosphere was fresh, bright yet so simple. Just loved everything about it and would be going back a lot more except for the 1400km journey each way. Keep up the good work.

“Not happy, Jan!”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Sunday afternoon, grubby premises - needed a good vacuuming - and lots of tables with the remains of previous diners meals not 'bused' away and we had to clean off space at a table to sit down by piling it onto the mess left on an adjacent table. We ordered afternoon tea of scones jam and cream with a pot of tea and a long black coffee. A pimply faced youth deposited one scone with heaps of jam and cream on the side - I said "We did order "Scones" (plural)" and he said he would go back and get us another one. I told him not to bother - we shared the one large scone with one of us using the plate and the other the paper napkin.

I also have a great dislike, when ordering a pot of tea, to be served that with a small coffee cup!
For goodness sake, if you do not have teacups in Teahouse, give your customers a coffee mug - not a piddling little coffee cup.

Needs the 'female touch' instead of all male staff!

“Home cooking!!!”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

Home-cooked comfort food and a friendliness only found in a country town, this is Gilbert's. You can tell from all the locals eating that ths is value and special. Everything seemsto be cooked on premise. The offer is good and the food better.
