Gilbey's Bar, Restaurant & Townhouse
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.

Food and ambience really good and the value for money was fantastic! Just a real shame about the service. I called in advance but no one returned my call. Whilst waiting patiently to be seen to on arrival another couple came in after me and the waitress bee lined straight to them; the patron gestured to me saying I was there before them but regardless she carried on taking their details. Eventually she got to me, I was seated, coat not taken as other patrons. Took a while to get drinks; she said she’d come back and never did! This place could be 5 stars once the hospitality team get put through some training.
We visited to celebrate my husbands birthday. the staff were very welcoming and accommodating. the food was excellent quality, service attentive but not overpowering and value for money considering the quality.
I would certainly recommend to anyone wanting a special meal and I will definitely return again soon.
Great food, evenly paced pre set meal.
Service is sketchy, one young lady who served us couldn't have been more helpful, the other felt like we were intruding on their Sunday afternoon
Excellent food, perfect service, nice people and very quiet atmosphere in the part of the restaurant where we were sitting. Highly recommended!
Had a great night out with friends, they enjoyed the ambiance and food.
We were so happy that we found Gibley's! As first timers, we were impressed with the diverse and different menu, bringing new ideas to classic dishes. I especially enjoyed my mussels and can highly recommend them. As we were there for lunch, it was also nice to find a wide range of interesting non-alcoholic drinks to explore.
Excellent evening with two colleagues
Lovely relaxed atmosphere with yummy food and attentive service. Thank you :)
Wonderful place to eat with friends or cosy couple. Music is soft and mellow so no shouting. My husband is coeliac but menu can be quickly adapted to all allergies with no fuss, just a smile. Staff are happy and smiley and knowledgeable about their menu and their wines and always go that extra mile. It is always such a joy to dine here (their pork is to die for!). Prices are very competitive, already planning my next visit.
This is the third time I have been to Gilbeys and it really doesn’t disappoint!
The food is exquisite and the servers are so very friendly! Lovely, lovely place!
what a beautiful little restaurant to meet and have dinner with friends. Service was great, food was very tasty and had a lovely evening. Didn't leave stuffed, but was not hungry as the quality of the food was to a very high standard. Will be going back for date night for sure.
Excellent meal and fantastic service, relaxed and great ambiance would recommend
My choice of meal wasn’t as good as my partners. Service very good, restaurant clean and quite buzzy.
We’ve been many times. Dozens over the years Food always excellent. We asked if the set menu could be altered a bit to give us a small portion of mussels (a main course) as a starter. The waitress said she’d check with the chef and came back to say this was fine. Food arrived. All lovely. Bill reflected the main menu prices for the starter and the main courses as separate. Not set menu. Obviously more. Just irritating.
We enjoyed the atmosphere and that our original table which was near the door was changed for one where we were not in a continual draft. The food was hot and service fiend.y and good.
The food was outstanding. The resident is conveniently located and the decor beautiful. Monica took care of us and was awesome
Excellent sunday lunch with excellent value on three course meal. All courses were amazing particularly the superbly cooked duck main. Friendly, attentive staff with swift service. Will eagerly look to return if in the area.
Fabulous meal to celebrate my parents’ 40th wedding anniversary. Food, service and atmosphere all excellent. The scallops to start are exceptional!
This family owned restaurant caught our eye walking past.
It’s website was easy to navigate and the on line menus and wine lists enticing. Booking was simple. From the moment we stepped into the restaurant to the moment we left we were treated well.
Tish who looked after us, and her colleague both acknowledged us on arrival, the service was just the perfect balance between professional and friendly. The menu varied and food excellent. The wine list is worth reading just by itself with entertaining descriptions that entice you.
The restaurant itself is well appointed, clean and beautifully decorated with amazing artwork and a lovely little courtyard garden. We had a really lovely evening thank you.
Discovered by accident and what a find. Fantastic welcome from Calina, what a great asset she must be to this restaurant, we were really made to feel special. The service was great, nothing was too much bother and the food and wine excellent. We will definitely go again next time we are in Windsor. Thoroughly recommended
Food was good, room quite chilly, staff very corporate at first with headsets which was odd for Sunday lunch. and very odd pricing. But delicious and we had a lovely service after initial speaker/headset hiccup.
I would recommend Gilbey's to someone who doesn't need too much service. The food and ambience were very enjoyable but we struggled a bit with getting the sides to the main courses (which arrived somewhat after the dishes) and never managed to order a glass of wine as no one came back to take our order. None of that was the end of the world, and our waitresses were very pleasant - just rather lackadaisical.
Don't normally do this kind of thing (write reviews of places), don't use non-professional opinions (the bloody Harvester on the road to Runnymede gets 5 stars for God's sake). So for what it's worth the food was both beautifully prepared and presented; was delicious and the staff were both friendly and efficient. It's expensive but good value.
Enjoyed a family meal at Gilbey's on a Saturday lunch. Food was good, service was excellent. It is recently expanded and looked small from the street, but had lots of space out back.
Generally very good but rather noisy adjacent tables
Lovely food atmosphere and service. We visit frequently and have never ben disappointed in the quality of food and service
Extremely slow service and an inedible main course. Won’t be returning.
Very friendly service, great value set menu for early dinners even on weekends! Absolutely delicious starters and mains - the extras were a bit disappointing and overpriced but overall it was a lovely dinner and we would definitely come back if in the area! Drinks also not too expensive so overall the meal is good value.
We took friends there for dinner and had a lovely time and the food was great. Would recommend for sure.
Gilbeys restaurant is the perfect place to wine and dine, the food, service and ambiance is amazing. I love it there.
Dinner was lovely, everyone really enjoyed their food and the puddings in particular, especially the salted caramel ice cream.
Had a wonderful birthday lunch. Food was exceptional, service attentive and atmosphere lovely. Will definitely be returning.
Lovely décor, good food and service nothing to complain about! Enjoyed it.
We had a fantastic meal. The service was a little slow BUT that was perfect for us as it was a chance to catch up with friends who live in the US. Even though it was a little slow- the guys were really attentive and genuine in wanting to make sure we were having the best time
Fine food, nice service, excellent value for money
Good menu, innovative and tasty food in a relaxed and informal ambiance.
Food was very average. Not as good as last visit
Gilbeys has an excellent and extremely good value wine list. Menu does not disappoint and chefs delivered on high expectation. Loud party in that night which distracted a little but overall very enjoyable
Excellent friendly service and set menu was very good value. Mussels were huge
