Modern European
Situated on the High Street of Eton, close to the River Thames and between the historic buildings of Eton College and Windsor Castle, Gilbey's is open from 12 noon for lunch and 6pm for dinner every day.
Originally an old butcher's shop, we created one of the first wine bars outside London in 1975 - The Eton Wine Bar. After 25 years of success, we changed the name in 2000 to Gilbey's, having recognised that our food had outgrown the original wine bar concept. Our friendly and efficient team look forward to welcoming you in either the stunning Conservatory Restaurant, cosy Front Bar and Townhouse, one of our newly opened Townhouse guest bedrooms or our top floor studio apartment-our exclusive guest accommodation.

    A quick morning breakfast before catching the train for a family of four with bags. Greeted at door with a “good morning” and a smile, asked for an outside table; no problem. Our server was the manager due to train strike and staff all having difficulty coming in. Two salmon egg on toast, a full English and eggs Benedict. Server asked about our train schedule and gave a few recommendations on various routes. Quick service, food was right out and most importantly very good. We’ve been to other Bill’s previously and they’ve always been consistently on the mark. Will return.

    A lovely Eton restaurant with excellent food, wine and service, and an amusing table of two older couples close to us playing one-upmanship with how much money they made. But it was funny rather than annoying, and made for excellent cabaret. The staff were wonderful, and the food gorgeous. Highly recommended.

    This is a fabulous independent restaurant with a great atmosphere and extremely good service. Wonderful for meat eaters but disappointing for a plant based eater: the dishes were adapted from vegetarian, no choice at all and it felt like not much thought had gone into them. Dressed salad leaves and asparagus to start, and a risotto for main course which was uninspiring. A scoop of sorbet was on offer for desert. I’d love to see this place modernise their menu to cater for everyone

    Overall a good experience. Nice ambiance and good service. Wild venison starter was really excellent the rib eye less so. Good selection of wines by the glass. Moderately expensive I would say. £165 for three people for two courses plus 4 glasses of wine.

    Amazing! The service was friendly and welcoming. The server was fantastic and made great recommendations. We each got a different starter, a main dish, and a dessert. The salt cod pinwheel was one of the best things I’ve eaten at a restaurant in a long time. Had a great evening and would highly recommend!

    I found the menu to be limited as a pregnant lady. Most Starters contained unpasteurised milk or was a cured/smoked meat which I couldn't eat. Subsequently I didn't have a starter. I also found I had to carefully select what to have for the Main meal due to the same reason above. Bill came to £100 for 2 people which given we only had 2 courses and I was only drinking water all night, it felt expensive and a disappointing experience.

    A tasty Sunday lunch. Beautifully cooked beef. Roast potatoes perfect. Distinct lack of vegetables though. Tiniest amount of cabbage & about 6 french beans. This was poor compared to other places & very disappointing.
