Located in the beautiful village of Wolverley and trading as The Old Village Store since November 2007. In August 2017 the business was passed on and is now trading as Gil's. Our ethos, is simple, fresh, quality product and it's working. We've given the place a fantastic makeover, put together a superb team, revamped the menu and built up an amazing reputation. Come and find us, you'll receive a warm welcome, you'll have excellent food and you'll get great service. We love what we do and look forward to meeting you. Gil x
