We booked a table by phone but they couldn't find our booking once we got there so we had to wait for a table. Service was very slow and food was cold. No atmosphere, unfriendly staff and screaming kids

The food was fantastic, hot, delicious and delivered by the wonderful Jess in a timely fashion. Would recommend a visit if you have never been.... More

Had a quick lunch. Fancied something from the breakfast menu but was 1pm. They still went out of their way to accommodate this. Maria is a fantastic waitress. Will be re visiting without a doubt.

We always come here for midweek lunches and to see sharon who is amazing. Always looks after the 3 of us and the baby always gets a cuddle. Food is really good and nothing is too much trouble.

Been coming here for years. Depending on the chef on the day is the big difference in wait times and quality of cooked food. Went for breakfast and eggs were cold outside and hot inside, avocado was not creamy but bland. They offer a good selection of breakfasts but unbelievably after so many years, granary bread is no longer an... More

Had a lovely lunch at GC. Food lovely , place nice and clean. Our waitress Maria was so friendly and welcoming, she clearly is very happy to work at GC and it shows, she had a smile the whole time. We will certainly be returning.

Thank Lorraine S
