Had an excellent Sunday lunch at Gilbies today. Good portion sizes, fresh vegetables, and plenty of extra gravy. Best roast dinner I have had in Hereford!

The new menu brings Hereford dining bang up to date and offers diners something a little different for occasion dining. Great happy hour & a great range of drinks. Can’t wait to see what further changes the team have up their sleeve for 2019 😋🙌...More
