Whenever we visit Hereford we go to Gilbie's for lunch...its a must. In fine weather sitting outside is lovely in their courtyard. We have never had a bad meal or drink there and you get plenty for your money.

We had a nice bottle of prosecco and tapas for 2 for 30. Calamari was a bit rubbery. Good value for money. Nice atmosphere. Friendly and efficient staff.

Lovely service but very noisy on our table upstairs. Food was good but not amazing this time. Would still revisit but ask for a different placement

We hadn't been to Gilbies for many years, having enjoyed a number of evenings there in the past, including two New Year's Eves. Just as we remembered, the atmosphere was lively, music was playing and it was busy, with a hardly an indoor table to...More

Lovely food, nice selection of drinks & great staff. Gilbies is especially great in the summer when you can sit outside in the courtyard but is equally cozy in winter. Definitely my favourite place for drinks & the tapas is also amazing.

Tucked away from the hustle and bustle in a picturesque courtyard overlooked by St. Peter's church spire. Here is, quite simply, the only place to visit if it is a continental flavour that you are looking for. Where else in this little market town could you sit outside under the canopy of a huge grapevine and enjoy a pitcher of Europe's finest beer or lager?Here is an ideal spot to relax and contemplate life whilst sipping one of the worlds many varieties of wine.
