“Nice lunch time venue in Hull centre”
Reviewed 1 April 2014 via mobile

Garbos is a large, airy, nicely decorated pub/bar to grab a lunchtime meal or a cocktail. Love the chandeliers. The service is good but can be a bit slow at times when busy at lunchtime. The food is generally of a good standard and there is a good choice although some more basic choices at lunch would be nice.

“Gourmet Sunday lunch!”
Reviewed 26 February 2014

We went to Garbo's for Sunday lunch at about 3:30 last Sunday. There were plenty of free tables and we were quickly greeted. The full menu was being served, as well as the Sunday roast menu. The roasts are served as a carving portion for two to share, but we were told that serving it individually or mixing the meats was fine.

The food was delicious and very well presented, and the service was attentive and friendly. The bill for three of us with drinks was only roughly £30, so excellent value for money.

We will be back!

“Up market lunch stop”
Reviewed 8 February 2014

I had read a good review in the East Riding Mail, so as we were in the Hull Old Town Area, we thought we would give Garbos a try.
As you open the door the place shouts up market, modern, loads of space, bright, need I go on.
Looked at the menu, pub classics with a modern touch, went to the bar to order, the bar staff really pleasant.
A very short wait and the food was in front of us, I had the Garbos Burger, very, very tasty, my partner had Steak Pie, he said it was full of tender meat, accompanied by a cabbage and leek mix and a generous portion of buttery mash, with an individual jug of gravy.
We looked at the Sunday lunch menu, can't wait to go to try the mini joint brought to the table to carv yourself, sounds great.
A nice touch -a young couple with a toddler sat at the next table to us, within minutes a waiter came to offer them a high chair.
Good food, good drinks, good atmosphere, great staff.
