Arrived to meet family on Sunday lunchtime. My partner's grandmother had got a table and opened a tab so I went to the bar to order a drink, a pint of coke. I asked for it with no ice (sensitive teeth). The coke was given to me with more than an inch left to the rim so I asked for... More

We visited the John Gilbert as it was next-door to our Hotel. Our visit was on a Friday evening and the place was very busy with office workers. We were served promptly and only waited a short time for our food, which was excellent. My only quibble was that my wife wanted a Whisky Mac and they didn't stock ginger... More

My husband had booked the function room for Sunday 29th January 2017 to celebrate my 70th birthday with family. We had celebrated my husband's 70th birthday there 3 years earlier which was lovely, that is why he booked the surprise lunch. Unfortunately, it would appear that the head chef wasn't in so the manager was working in the kitchen! There... More

I have stayed at the Novotel next door to this pub on several occasions recently. The first time I arrived late and didn't eat in the evening, but I noted the pub just outside the entrance and it looked nice so I paid it a visit on a later stay to eat there. The first thing for me is that... More

Called in for lunch at 12:30 today, to be told there's no chips. It's not the first review where they had no chips ( only 3 weeks ago), so we left without making a purchase. They need to get their act together, it's not as though it was late and they'd managed to sell out. Obviously poor stock control, especially... More

When we arrived we were told the tills were faulty and they could only accept cash(no cards). The young lady behind the bar told us where the nearest cash machine was( a local petrol station). I expect this problem has now been resolved. The service was very good as was the food. Where we were sat was very close to... More

Good atmosphere, busy but not overcrowded at about 9.30. Sit, stand, eat... just a comfortable place to be. Staff efficient, and work hard so no long waits for drinks.
