    Enjoyable evening . The food was lovely and the service was very good considering the restaurant was full. It was a little noisy as the table we had was in the middle.

    Being a coeliac I found the gluten free options extremely limited. I believe they are introducing a summer menu & perhaps they could consider some more gluten free meals.

    My 4th visit to The Gables in last 3 months. I went with a friend who was trying it for the first time. I ordered my usual tempura of prawns, a starter but I ordered it as main course. No chips or salad to accompany the dish, on previous occasions I been asked re same. No non alcoholic wine by the glass again a change from previous visits. Understandable as apparently the wine goes off quickly, hence one must order a bottle. Non alcoholic beverages Are not on the Drinks list and so are not offered as being available. This is a shame in a changing drinking culture. My friend, ordered Prawn and Monkfish curry. A MESS ON A PLATE! Bad choice of presentation ware, too much rice, also courgette , butter nut squash added to an unedible and unappetising meal. She did not feel well later during the night and will not be visiting or recommending The Gables to anybody. Disappointing

    Lovely brunch for Father’s Day - food & coffee lovely but both the poached eggs and coffee were only Luke warm Very little choice for my daughter who has a dairy and gluten intolerance but I guess it’s difficult to cater for every allergy / intolerance Staff very friendly Fab job on the refurb !

    First visit to the Gables since it reopened after COVID. Staff very helpful but would have to be honest and say it very noisy and uncomfortable as the evening went on , could not have any conversation. Music choice bad , food fair but staff helpful.

    Limited all day brunch menu on a Saturday, but enough choice for a "brunch". Excellent food, really great service, and strong coffee for those nursing a hangover...

    We had been looking forward to going to the Gables,very good experience on arrival ,staff very nice and helpful. ambience very good with a good buzz,drinks excellent and wine was lovely indeed the wine list was very good. they are the good points,,now to the bad points. The food was very disappointing, I had chicken wings for starter which I found to be overcooked and tasteless and not very spicy.My main course fish and chips also very disappointing, the fish was obviously frozen and tasteless,the chips were ok tough. In short nice place ,great atmosphere, excellent drinks,food below par. I will return for drinks and a burger which I believe is good....
