    We have been regular customers of the Gables since it opened and really enjoy both the food and the atmosphere. Unfortunately we were there yesterday evening (for a family birthday) and imagine our dismay to see they have changed their menu...! They have kept a v small number of the most popular dishes (Gables burger, fish and chips) but almost everything else on the menu is new. The fillet steak (always a favourite in our house!) has been replaced by a sirloin which is accompanied not by the usual choice of fries and black pepper/bearnaise sauce but by furikake (seasoned) fries, wasabi and ponzu..... Two of our party had the sirloin and sadly neither were impressed. The meat was very fatty and neither liked the sauces/accompaniments at all. On a positive, the burger and fish& chips were deemed as nice as always, and while the chocolate fondant (another family favourite) has been taken off the menu, the chocolate cheesecake was voted a hit. I understand the need to keep things "fresh" and updating the menu is a way to do this but please bring back the old menu! Also - they appear to have stopped doing breakfast now and just serve pastries which is a shame as the Gables was a lovely spot for breakfast. Sadly it looks like we may now have to find a new "local"....

    Ceasar salad was less than okay. Not enough salad and rather small amount of chicken and should be nice larger, grilled chicken strips. Location and ambience are still the best attributes. Brunch is probably best. Lunch used to be better.

    Today we had good food and first-rate service which thankfully was in very sharp contrast to our recent visit when we encountered a petulant duty Manager and an obnoxious ill mannered barman.

    Food, service and the decor were very good however the evening was spoilt by extremely loud music pumping from the speakers. Guests were shouting to be heard above the din. Would not return in the evening for this reason.

    Hi, it was an exceptionally windy day and we were seated out in the conservatory and it was very, very windy - would preferred to have been seated inside considering the weather. Also, I ordered smoked salmon which, on the menu stated with soda bread. On arrival it came with 3 tiny crisp breads and no offer of soda bread, I did tell the waiter, he asked was everything okay, and he said he would let the kitchen know. I also ordered honey roasted veg but it was just carrots and parsnips (I am not keen on latter) so, they were bit disappointing too - I expected mixed peppers, courgettes etc. Everyone else loved their burgers and chips, I just chose badly on the day. Service was excellent and we enjoyed our lunch. Thank you

    Before booking, we made a request to sit inside rather than outside and understood that this was a request only. When we arrived there were 5 free tables inside. We asked the lady who runs the front of house, what the process was on who gets the tables. When questioned about how they make the decision on 'who gets priority of the tables' - She was very rude and abrupt to both myself and my wife and even asked 'if we we're going to stand here and get into a fight'... The process isn't clear and seemed like it was down to favouritism. We are locals and love the Gables, but this one individual really provided a poor customer experience.

    Delicious breakfasts. Buttery scrambled eggs with smoked salmon was very tasty. Very generous portions. The eggs benny with bacon was equally impressive, bacon was very crispy as requested. Coffee in proper tall mugs. Great atmosphere. Love the decor. We stayed ages chatting. Service is prompt and most friendly. Prices are competitive. Highly recommend, will defo return.
