"Exceptionally Enjoyable"

The effort, care and love that has been lavished on Gibbon Bridge by you and your staff is plain for all to see, experience and enjoy.  However, what we particularly wanted to record is the exceptional quality of your staff.  Your team is, without doubt, the very best I have had the pleasure to meet and to be looked after by.  I have been a corporate member of the Hotel Catering & Institutional Management Association since 1973.  Over the years I have visited and worked with numberous hotels all over the UK.  The team at Gibbon Bridge are the best of all those that I have experienced.  First and foremost, being friendly, caring and professional and, by being well trained and, importantly, well led.  You are to be heartily congratulated.

"absolutely superb"

The al fresco lunch for my friends on Friday, for my birthday celebrations, was absolutely superb.  Everyone was so impressed and loved that style of dining, not to mention the food which was excellent.  My Family Sunday lunch was again brilliant with an amazing choice of delicious food.  The two events went off without the slightest hitch thanks to your professional, efficient team.  Thank you so much.
