Great food and service as always with Steve and Ann Marie, alas they are closing after nearly 35 years in charge. They will be greatly missed by all the regulars who have used them over the years.

The restaurant is an eclectic mix of styles. Gabled ceiling, with contemporary interior, and bits of Italian dotted about. It felt as though we were being hurried to finish and leave. Not offered a dessert menu, or even coffee. We'd eaten, paid, and we're outside...More

We found the very cold dining area an immediate let down then seeing only two other tables with diners, we knew the atmosphere would be lacking. The food was average (and that is neither a compliment nor a complaint) The presentation was substandard and the...More

Not a great place to go due to the fact that they are stuck time. The lady owner who "greets" you is miserable and the fact you have to have a drink in the reception area is antiquated. Food is satisfactory but I wouldn't return.

I was really looking forward to visiting this restaurant but sadly I was not very impressed, although the food was good it was not outstanding and was quite expensive. The staff all seemed to be hovering around one table at the time so you had...More

Bringing contemporary dining to a traditional building in historic Old Harlow, The Gables is a place to impress a new girlfriend, cheer up a friend or put you in the parental good books. Attractively appointed with dark beams arching over swagged windows and Victorian fireplaces the atmosphere is intimate and relaxed throughout the restaurant and the less formal bar. The menus, whether Sunday lunch or Table d���Hote, are of the umming and ahhing kind ��� packed with dishes it���s just impossible to choose between. Examples? Roast monkfish with red pepper sauce or spiced breast of duck with hoi sin... well, we certainly couldn���t pick.
