Didn’t think food was value for money. Black pudding starter at 7.25 had very little black pudding. Steak pie & chicken pie at £14.25 each was overpriced

Visited for a light lunch with friends, placed order with waitress at 12.40 and she returned 5 minutes later to tell us that the baked potato, which myself and one of my friends had ordered was not available as they wouldn’t be ready for another 30 minutes. We then all ordered a paniniI as neither of us were keen on the fillings offered with sandwiches or wraps. It was ok but disappointing and we felt, rather expensive as it came with a few lettuce leaves, one slice off yellow pepper, two peices of onion and what appeared to be the crumbs from the crisp packet.

Enjoyed. Our night, however both salmon dishes we got had bone and one was quite substantial. We did get an apology, but was rather. Off putting for 1 member of the party and no discount.

I ordered the Beef, the Main 2 course light meal. The meal itself was lovely. However, my only disappointment was the amount of beef on my plate was of a very small amount, which surprised me as the meals are dear enough. Apart from this, it’s a beautiful place to relax and have a meal in, with friendly and efficient service.

We visited GGs coffee shop and sports bar. This was our second visit and will definitely be a favourite with us in the future. It is great for casual dining. There is a good choice of food, the atmosphere is bright and friendly. Staff were very attentive. Looking forward to our next visit.

Poor slow service . Vegetable enchiladas awful . Filled with large pieces of rock hard vegetables . Mainly hard broccoli and carrot , neither indicative of Mexican food . This was an itison deal which I certainly won’t purchase again .

Ordered Haddock & King Prawn risotto, and 2 other meals, when risotto was delivered to table, there was no Haddock & no King Prawn, it was a Mushroom risotto. When question to the waiter, he took plate away, and several minutes later brought back the same plate, which was heated through with addition on King Prawns and liquid of sort to stop rice from getting stodgy, not exactly good, and I was a bit hungry I did eat

My three friends and I come to the Gailes about every 6 weeks or so and we are all so delighted with the welcome we get from the staff. They are all so friendly and always ready with a smile.and a chat.

We have been eating at the Gailes for 5 years and enjoy it every time. This is the second visit with family from England who were really pleased to return and like us have nothing but good comments. The staff are friendly and welcoming, the food is always wonderful and it's perfect for a meal with family allowing us to sit and chat while we eat.

We got married here 9/9/18 so what better way to celebrate with a wee lunch date, not just the 2 of us but our 3month old baby too!! (That's how relaxed and good the wedding was) lol Service was excellent, staff are so friendly and accommodating. It was nice to come back a year later and find the service hadn't slipped. Keep up the great work. Highly recommend.

The quality of the food was horrible. No test to food what’s so ever. Even the sweet was old not fresh at all. They ask for top money for bar food

Love staying at all your hotels,specially the waterside, but would be great if there was a spa there too.. Can not believe the price of a bottle of tonic is £3.10 find that bit over the top, but will not stop us returning as soon as we can😊
