I checked Trip advisor and found this lovely restaurant and telephoned to book a table. £20 for a two course Sunday Roast where my wife and I chose the Sweet rather than the Starter (my wife has a sweet tooth)....

This is not the first Valentines dinner we have had at Gilbeys. It's only after we've been we wonder why we haven't been back sooner. Service is impeccable and staff attentive.

Another wonderful night at Gilbey's, situated in The Liston Hotel. This time for the excellent value banquet night. 5 wonderful courses plus canape's. I had the bass, succulent and perfectly cooked as were all the courses, with their usual exemplary service, thanks once more Scott and Patsy

Yet again a memorable evening at Gilbeys, Liston hotel. Diane and her team put on a brilliant New Years Eve dinner dance. The chef must be congratulated on the superb food which was beautifully presented. The staff were friendly and worked hard to keep us in food and drink. Lovely evening.

We selected Gilbeys at the Liston Hotel for our pre-Christmas group meal on recommendation. We were not disappointed. From the initial contact with Diane Gilby, the family support whilst she was away to the meal itself; the experience was a really good one. Menu choices were flexible but catered for different tastes and requirements. It is not that usual to... More

Super meal again last week. Our group meet monthly at a different location in the area and everyone loves going to Gilbeys because the quality of the meal is always so good. They now serve a two course lunch on Friday's as well as Sunday lunch; can't wait to enjoy one of those. Thank you.
