4 Friends dined here on Friday last week, Didn't quite catch the name of our server but what a lovely girl, I had booked online to find out that I thought we had booked the spring menu with a bottle of prosecco only to find out that I was 2 years out of date! They honoured a bottle of prosecco which I thought was such a lovely gesture, thank you for a lovely night for a catch up with Friends.

Booked for an early dinner, so had the place to ourselves. Staff polite, friendly, and helpful. Meal lovely, with a good portion and quality ingredients. Would have no hesitation to recommend, and will definitely go back.

This was my first visit to the Gailes. It was for mothers day afternoon tea. The restaurant was busy - always a good sign. Staff were pleasant, helpful and quick to re-fill teas and coffees. The afternoon tea itself was mediocre. The sandwiches were dry. The bread slightly stale like they had been pre made too long before serving. Inner fillings however were fine and a well rounded choice. Scones had the same problem as the bread. Very very dry and hard around the edges from being out in the air for presumably too long. The Haggis bon bons were lovely as were the small chocolate sponges. The bottom layer cakes had damp droplets of water all over them. An indication that the pastries/cakes had been frozen and left to thaw out before serving. Much like the cakes you can buy at Iceland. Price wise £25 for two is very reasonable, I have however been to other places and paid the same to not much more for all fresh items. I wouldn't rush back to the Gailes for the afternoon tea. I would return to the restaurant for a meal if I heard enough praise.

Service, food and value for money was absolutely first class. The only niggle was that our table was on the left hand side more like a bar area than the restaurant which impacted on ambience a little. However I would definitely return

Beautiful tasty food, which was extremely good value due to £19 offer. All waitresses were helpful, and friendly. Only slight niggle was lighting and direct overhead lighting felt very bright.
