We had a family meal at the Gilpin this weekend (April 2014) as it was local to the whole family at the time. We arrived on time to be greeted by a very friendly member of staff who led us to the table where some of our part were already seated.
The Menu was very compact with adequate choice, although my daughter is a vegetarian and there was only one option for her, she eventually decided to have a goats cheese sandwich and chips which she was quite satisfied with.
We all decided to forgo the starter and go straight for the main, I chose Haddock and chips.
An hour later our food arrived, there were 9 of us eating and the meals were basic burgers, fish and lamb so nothing too difficult but we considered the hour long wait very excessive, particularly when you consider the Inn had approximately 16 people dining including our party.
The food was very good however, the fish was cooked perfectly and the chips were chunky and crispy, everyone else commented that their food was very good too.
The let down for the Gilpin was the wait for the food and the lack of atmosphere, a few log fires and sofas would make the ambiance much more cosy (and warmer!).
