Visited for a Thursday night meal, so quite quiet. It’s a lovely restaurant in a good position in the village, looks like there is a nice outdoor space when weather allows. We were visiting with regulars who knew the staff, who were very friendly, recommended...some excellent cocktails (raspberry daiquiri was delicious). Most of our party had steak, which seemed to go down very well, I went for pasta, which was pretty good. The highlight was the tiramisu. What I would say is it’s pricey, with a main course coming in between £14 and £20, so the bill can mount pretty quickly.More

Visited the Gables again this time for my mums birthday. Once again all the food was delicious I had the mackerel pate and then the salmon both were excellent. Staff are fantastic had a bit of banter with them. They have my mum a bottle...of bubbly which was a lovely touch. Looking forward to going again soon.More

It’s well positioned which gives it a good advantage in the area. As such competition is slim. However the head waiter was very arrogant and spoke down to us as if we were children. Very rude. The food was good but nothing exceptional although the...roast was better and large portions Overall over priced for what it is. It’s a shame that they feel they can be so arrogant as they have no competition close by!More

Came here tonight (Saturday 6.30pm), had a wonderful meal. Service fab, restaurant lovely, we were sat in the outside covered bit, food delish, I had the calamari to start, other half had the crab, mains I had mushroom risotto, never had that before and was...so pleased I did, other half had seafood linguini, I was too full for dessert, other half had creme brulee..would definitely returnMore

From the moment we entered the restaurant the service was amazing. Never felt too intrusive but always felt attended to. The staff are friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Food was excellent - I had steak as did my partner for our main course...and they were both cooked to perfection. Will definitely be returning and would highly recommend.More

Fabulous Fresh Fish, beautiful food, brilliant service! Chose this restaurant as a last minute whim; haven’t eaten here for more than fifteen years. What a transformation! The restaurant is lovely; covid compliant, extremely clean, very friendly and attentive staff, and a lovely ‘new’ owner/host. Had...the most delicious meal, and they even cooked a starter to order as a special request that wasn’t on the menu! Can’t wait to return…… customer service as it should be. Great job team!More

Staff nosy and patronising, repeatedly calling us ‘girls’ at aged 26 and making sarcastic comments at our order choice. Ordered a Bloody Mary as my favourite cocktail and one drink of the night and it was basic tomato juice. We were in and out in...45 minutes which all together proved a very overpriced 45 minutes. Food was good, the only saving grace.More

First came here a couple of years ago after a family Christening and was very impressed. We have returned here and there for dinner and loved it every time. Great service with food to match. You can tell the staff love working there and you...are made to feel part of the family. Can't wait to visit again shortly!!More
